The Cobrafist is the go-to pogie to fight winter's deep chill. The durable, wind-stopping nylon outer layer is lined with 400g Primaloft Eco Gold insulation for sub-zero comfort. Alloy locking plugs attach the pogies to the ends of your handlebars. On the other end, foam donuts wrap around your handlebar and control lines - held in place by a zipped closure and velcro band on the cuff. We like to tape across the donuts to really seal out the drafts for the coldest temps. A shock-corded drawstring closure at the top seals the pogie around your forearm for maximum heat retention.
Front and rear zipped vents allow easy temperature regulation as the day warms up or on long climbs. The double-sided zipper pulls are accessible from inside or outside the pogie and are easy to operate - even with gloved hands. Internal mesh pockets provide convenient storage for lightweight gloves, snacks, sunscreen, lip balm, phone, compact camera or any other small items you want to keep close and warm.
If temperatures in the teens and below are in your forecast, 45NRTH's Cobrafist is the deep winter pogie you've been looking for. Are you mostly riding in warmer temps but still want the extra warmth of a pogie? Check out Wolf Tooth's Singletrack Pogies. They're a good deal lighter and less bulky than the Cobrafist. Perfect for temps in the twenties and warmer.
The Cobrafist is designed to fit flat or riser handlebars, 640mm and wider. They will not work on drop bars. Bars with a large amount of backsweep (Jones, Surly Moloko, etc.) may also place the pogies at an awkward angle, though many riders use these on swept-back handlebars with no complaints. Since they attach with bar-end plugs, your handlebars must be open on the end. Grips with closed ends will prevent attachment of these pogies. Positioning of handlebar-mounted controls or accessories may need to be adjusted to allow installation or for angle adjustment.
