Technical cycling tights for very cold conditions
These high-performance cycling bib tights have been created to provide maximum protection in harsh conditions without compromising the rider’s range of movement. Designed to be worn over padded cycling shorts, the legs of the tights feature pre-bent knees for a superior fit, and which will also aid pedal strokes. The body of the tights are made from a heavier weight, fleece-lined fabric which is highly breathable and reinforced in key areas.
The front of the legs have windproof panels and there is a harder wearing fabric at the seat, which is abrasion-resistant, water-repellent and includes reinforced stitching. The chest and rear leg panels use a thinner fabric that works with your base layer and jersey to prevent overheating. Offset seams are positioned to prevent chafing and the bibs are made from a strong, breathable black mesh.
Other styling includes white panels on the lower back and a reflective white stripe down the back of the left leg. The stirrups of the tights provide extra support, use a durable binding and can be folded inside if not required. The left-hand shoulder features a pink tab with Rapha logo and the top of the seat panel has a printed ‘WHEELSUCKER’ motto to encourage your training partners (or provoke your enemies).
There’s a lot of attention to detail, with pre-bent knees and a hard-wearing, water-resistant seat panel. The result is a beautifully cut, comfortable product that’s exceptionally warm.
