At AGU we want to encourage people to cycle more. Through the forest, the city, to work, school or further from home to make a beautiful trip. Our challenge is to make those rides as comfortable, fun and safe as possible, especially when the weather challenges us.
Especially in spring and autumn we can make a difference. The weather can then change quickly. One minute you're driving in the sun, five minutes later it can be pouring from heaven. And what do you do then? Still taking the car, train or bus? Rather not, the bicycle is often faster, simpler and above all more durable. The right clothing and accessories are indispensable at those times.
But what do you need in the rain? How do you stay warm and dry without breaking a sweat? How do you travel safely? AGU has an extensive collection of waterproof and repellent raincoats for the most diverse conditions and for every cyclist. From summer showers to winter storms. And from the sporty cyclist who sits for hours in the saddle to the urban biker who opts for short rides within the city.
Cycling in the rain requires a different technique and alertness. With a wet road surface and thin tires, a slipper is made in no time. In addition, the right equipment plays an important role. The rain can cool you down. You start to shiver, a natural reaction to raise your body temperature. That shivering costs energy, energy you'd rather put into your pedals. In addition, a wet suit can of course also hinder your comfort during a ride. You would rather avoid soaking in your shoes or irritation by clothing that does not dry quickly, for example. With good water-repellent coatings, shoe covers and a high-quality packable raincoat, we ensure that you are dry, safe and comfortable on the road.

Working together with the staff and riders of Team Jumbo-Visma is essential to our clothing research and development. Last year we further refined and optimized the TJV winter equipment to provide maximum performance even on rainy days. The riders provide our designers with continuous feedback. Feedback that we use to further refine the materials and processes to make our clothing even more waterproof and windproof, insulating, lighter and more aerodynamic. After extensive testing by the pros, we implement those improvements in our collections. This way you can also perform optimally and enjoy yourself, no matter how cold it is.
