Gear that can keep up, no matter how hard the efforts.
Kari Traa Svala Hoodie ($80)
With a zip neck and a mesh back that wicks sweat from your body, this poly-wool hoodie fits like a second skin.
Louis Garneau Method Neck Gaiter ($19)
The silky fabric on LG’s neck warmer is thick enough to protect but not so thick as to suffocate.
ProBar Chocolate Cherry Cashew Bites (12 for $24)
ProBar’s 1.6-ounce organic bars serve up 190 calories in a yummy mix of brown rice, dried cherries, and cashew butter.
Craft Repel Jacket ($175)
Windproof, waterproof, and breathable, this shell fat-biked with us on a blustery 18-degree midwestern day. Long vertical vents in sweat zones provided a much welcomed cooldown on steep hill repeats.
Hoka One One Speedgoat 2 Trail Running Shoes ($140)
Hoka built these shoes on a new last with a wider midsole and a roomier toe box to increase stability. The beefier outsole with deep lugs coasted over all kinds of terrain, from Arizona to Minnesota.
The North Face Motivation Tech Bra ($50)
The T-back, front V-cut, and simple print combine to make a fun, flattering sports bra that’s also highly functional, thanks to the quick-drying polyester-elastane fabric, molded cups, and wide-cut straps.
Helly Hansen Lifa Merino Hybrid 3/4 Boot Top Tights ($90)
This 100 percent merino wool base layer warms legs without the annoying bulk or bunching. The trick: flatlock seams and cuffs at midcalf that lock the tights in place.
CEP Progressive+ Merino Socks ($60)
These medical-grade compression socks have a seamless toe to minimize blisters, while the merino wicks sweat and keeps you warm.
Seirus Solarsphere Brink Gloves ($50)
Sunlight will warm the gloves’ hollow filament insulation, boosting the inside temperature by up to 10 degrees.
Decibullz Custom-Fit Earphones ($120)
It takes only about 20 minutes to custom-mold these slick Bluetooth earbuds, creating a precise fit. The shaped buds ensure the Decibullz won’t fall out while you’re running.
Skida Alpine Hat ($36)
With generous coverage and bright floral patterns, this warm fleece hat makes subzero workouts almost fun.
Dynafit SpeedFit Dynastretch Pants ($180)
These pants—with a zippered, adjustable cuff and a wind-resistant nylon soft-shell front—are durable, warm, and light. A stretchy waist and brushed elastic in back mean the Dynastretch moves with you on uphills.
