I’ve never given much thought to using pogies here in the southeast, but I’m pretty sure my hands get about three times colder while riding a drop-bar bike in the winter—something about the amount of surface area on the bars, or perhaps the need to change positions often. Either way, 45NRTH came up with a solution for dro-bar riders in colder climates. Their new Draugenklaw Drop Bar Pogies are designed to keep your hands warm and dry and allow the full use of brake and integrated shift levers. They were made with cold commutes, training rides, races, and touring in mind.
The Draugenklaw has a suggested temperature rage of 15°F (-9°C) to 35°F (2°C) and feature a weather resistant softshell fabric on the outside with a soft fleece on the inside made to trap warmth. Here are the features from 45NRTH:
- Far-infrared yarn collects body heat and holds warmth
- Weather-resistant outer keeps moisture out
- Lightweight design is ideal for race days and milder riding conditions
- Compatible with flared drop bars
- Reflective accents add visibility
Draugenklaw Drop-bar Pogies come in one size that fits most handlebars and retail for $85 USD. Learn more over at 45NRTH.com.
