Warm Weather Riding Gear: Ways to Stay Cool and Beat the Summer Heat

For riders living in areas where summer brings hot or humid conditions, it is imperative to prepare for extreme temperatures that can cause dehydration, muscle cramping, heat exhaustion—and even worse, heatstroke. With temperatures reaching record levels in many parts of the country and worldwide, one can take steps to prevent heat-related symptoms when riding in hot weather.

One of the most significant pieces of advice we can share when one plans to ride in hot weather is to prepare in advance. Be sure to bring plenty of fluids to help avoid dehydration, such as one of the many electrolyte supplements on the market that help one stay hydrated while offering enhanced re-hydration over plain water. Electrolyte supplements help replace essential minerals potassium, sodium, and calcium, which are crucial to avoiding muscle cramps, fatigue, headaches, and other symptoms related to dehydration, heat exhaustion, and heat stroke.

Another area that can make a meaningful difference when riding in warm-weather conditions is specialty warm-weather riding gear. Each item uses a specialty fabric to help regulate body temperature or incorporates added ventilation for improved airflow, ventilation, and cooling. With so many products using technical cooling fabrics, there's simply no reason these days to ride in hot weather without them.

EVS Riding Gear for Warm Weather

The following specialty items from EVS Sports are each designed to provide relief when riders hit the track or trail in hot and humid conditions.

TUG CTR Vest

EVS TUG CTR Vest

The TUG CTR (Core Temperature Regulator) Vest uses a "cooling touch fabric" that, when saturated with water, remains cool for an extended period (roughly one moto) to help better regulate core body temperature. Submerging the vest in water activates the cool touch fabric, which in turn reduces the fabric temperature by up to 30 degrees.

    • Four-way Stretch Technology – allows the fabric to flex and move in all four directions for improved comfort
    • Air Mesh Perforated Fabric – allows air to flow unimpeded while protecting from abrasions and sunlight
    • Moisture Wicking Material –pulls water away from the skin to stay dry and comfortable
    • Anti-Chafe Layer –between you and your protective gear prevents skin discomfort
    • Cold Touch Fabric – reduces the fabric temperature up to 30 degrees
    • Race Collar Compatible – to fit all EVS race collars and most neck braces. Integrated loop straps ensure any EVS race collar stays in place during use
    • Sizes – S, M, L, XL, and XXL
