Cycling Tights help keep you protected and comfortable while you ride your bike. A key benefit of cycle tights are that you often get seat padding, great for preventing saddle fatigue. Ideal for road riding, whether you’re racing or commuting, cycling tights keep you comfortable with stretchable materials and come with a close fit.
Tights are an essential part of the road cyclist’s wardrobe as they will provide you with unparalleled comfort on the bike. As well as this, there are practical benefits to bib tights – no more fallen down shorts!
There are different styles of cycling tights available depending on your warmth needs. A full pair of bib tights will keep you warmest, with bib shorts for the hotter months and even ¾ length calf shorts for when you want your knees warmed. Also available are tights with no bib, for if you like the fit without the over-shoulder construction.
Winter cycling tights, also known as 'longs' are the best way to keep your leg muscles warm when the weather turns cold. Fleecy backed fabrics are comfortable next to your skin and help retain warmth, even when they're wet. Look for double-layer knees to keep your joints protected. Calf-length tights, also known as 'knickers' are great for days when it's not too cold but you want to keep your knees warm.
