#1 Allround Jacket


Functional clothing allows for light luggage as well as multiple use of the same piece of clothing. Our favorite is the Micro Puff Jacket from Patagonia, which has the best best heat-weight ratio. The filling insulates almost as well as down - and even when wet. It can be used while riding, at the campside or even at night for additional warmth.

#2 Marginal Gains


Valve caps increase wind resistance and they aren't aerodynamic. It's better to take them off which saves about 10 watts per 100 km at 50 km/h.
