Summer races are won in the winter, as the old adage goes. It might be old but it still rings true in today’s peloton. For training and racing through the winter months, the riders of EF Education First turn to our Pro Team Winter Tights II. An evolution of our ever-popular thermal bib shorts, the tights have a wind-blocking DWR (durable water repellent) fabric all the way up the front-facing panels to ward off the weather. The race-ready, dual-density chamois pad is the same as used in the Pro Team Bib Shorts II while the surrounding panel are made with a thinner fabric for greater freedom of movement. A breathable alternate fabric features on the back of the legs, allowing body heat to be released when you’re pushing hard on the pedals. The seat panel is made with a reinforced, high-resistance fabric to guard against grit and abrasions. The inner of the tights has a brushed back fleece fabric for a touch of comfort in the cold. The upper section incorporates satisfyingly substantial bib straps for stability as well as a mesh panel on the back to aid temperature regulation under the winter layers. Reflective tabs and signature Pro Team bars have been placed all over the tights to keep you seen deep into winter.
