YOU NEED AN ELECTRIC VEST
Fundamentals of Biological Cooling in Mammals
you were a kid, your mom yelled at you to wear your hat and boots,
even made you wear those dorky mittens attached to your coat with
strings. When you asked why, she just said Because I told you to.
had the right idea, but heres a better explanation. When you
get cold, your body automatically decreases the amount of blood
circulating to your limbs and skin in order to decrease the rate of
heat loss and protect the head and vital organs for the longest
possible time. So when youre riding through a damp 55°
evening and your hands and feet feel frozen, its because your
body is trying to protect you by shutting off some of the blood to
your extremities. An electric vest will fake out your
body by keeping your trunk warm, then plenty of warm blood will be
allowed to circulate to your fingers and toes, letting you ride in
greater comfort and control.
difference is so dramatic that you may never take another trip
without an electric vest. Youll find that hooking up an
electric vest to your bike is a snap. If you can check your
bikes oil, you can install the hookup.
