What is the absolute warmest/thickest thermal underwear that you can possibly buy for extreme cold riding!!? It is now winter here and I refuse to give up riding just because its really cold outside. However I get cold very easily :bonk: I have thermals now that help but they are still not warm enough. Where can I buy the best of the best preferably in black instead of gray.

What other gear should I wear?

How about an high output stator and some electrically heated accessories? Another option is to ride really hard trails. No problem staying warm then.

I find that layers is best. Then you can adjust the number to what you actually need.

I usually don't ride if it's much below 35 to 40 at the staging spot. I've been riding down into the teens when getting to altitude. That's freaking cold on a bike. I don't ride my street bike to work if it's below 50. Just sitting there on the street can really chill you quick.

I have REI heavy weight thermals - they are polyester fleece and very warm, but they take up more room under your clothing than normal thermals, so you can't wear them under gear that is already tight. I love them for cold weather riding - the coldest being in the mid 20's.

search for "Under Armour" online. Just be sitting when you see the price. You can also look at cabelas.com or other hunting retailers for insulated undies.

They look pretty nice but it only shows the bottoms.

One important thing to consider is an outer layer that blocks the wind. You will be surprised at how much it helps to keep you warm.:bonk:

For an outside the box suggestion, try an electric jacket liner. I live in eastern NC and ride my street bike pretty much all year round. The liner draws about 100 watts. That is no problem for my ST 1300. I've used it on my 2002 DRZ s and it didn't kill it. Note that I've replaced the tail light assembly with LED's. When I use the liner I pull the bulb on the headlight. The heated liner is by far leaps and bounds the warmest riding accessory I've used.

For an adventure ride that's mostly a sit down street ride layers of any any amount or material will just buy you more time, you'll eventually get cold again. Electric is the only answer for long trips.

For an active dualsport ride the activity of working the bike will keep you warm and you can adjust layers as needed. I ride snowmobiles in the mountains and most people would think we freeze our ass off. Not true, I wear less than I do on a street ride on a cold day to stay comfortable because it's so much work.

These are not the cheapest but I am sure the warmest. Super high quality too.

I bought 2 pairs 10 years ago to use for snowmobiling. They still look new. I wear Style 2. What I like about them is I just wear these with a tee shirt and an outer shell. They wick sweat great and are anti microbial...No stink!

I have been kept warm down to -24 degrees.

Its a small company and when you call you talk to the owner and the person who sews them up.
