Cycling Bib Tights

Our Top Five Picks

When it comes to keeping your body warm through the colder months, your legs are one of the most important parts to consider. In summer the only concern is getting that crisp tan line, come the transition into autumn, knee and leg warmers become essential pieces of kit and then once winter hits a good pair of bib tights are a necessity. We have taken a look at five of our favourite bib tights below.

1. Black Sheep Cycling LTD North South Bib Tight

2. Castelli Tutto Nano Bib Tight

3. ASSOS Mille GT Winter Bib Tight

4. Endura Pro SL Bib Tight II

5. Gore Wear C5 Thermo Bib Tight

1. Black Sheep Cycling Ltd North South Womens Bib Tight

An exclusive collaboration between Black Sheep Cycling and Sigma Sports, the North South Womens Bib Tight is exceptionally warm and offers supreme protection, with the help of the Italian-milled warp-knit compressive fabric, which has been treated to resist water. Comfortable next to the skin, the brushed inner has been paired with an exterior that boasts reflective detailing. The full coverage upper adds warmth and improves fit, while the Black Sheep Cycling high-density seat pad offers exceptional comfort.

Inspired by London, we are proud to have the Sigma Sports logo adorning this bib tight. Available in a very limit run, this bib tight is part of the North South collection.


2. Castelli Tutto Nano Bib Tight

A garment made from Nano Flex 3G fabric, the Tutto Nano Bib Tight from Castelli offers insulation and protection from the rain. The third generation and most refined iteration of nanotechnology, the water repellency enhances the chemical DWR finish. In Leyman's Terms, you stay drier and ultimately more comfortable. Reducing the seams has improved comfort and fit, while the mesh bib straps allow for easy transfer of moisture away from the skin.

Struggle no more getting your bib tights on and off. The addition of ankle zippers makes life a lot easier, while you will be thankful for the addition of the KISS Air2 seat pad, a pad designed for long-distance riding. The logos being embossed add durability, making this a bib tight that is sure to last the distance.


3. ASSOS Mille GT Winter Bib Tight

When it comes to highly technical winter cycling kit you cannot go wrong with ASSOS products. The Mille GT Winter Bib Tight is no exception. A combination of RX Heavy and RX Light materials are strategically placed to offer a balance between comfort, moisture regulation, insulation and water repellency. A smelly subject, odorControl does exactly what it says on the tin, preventing bacteria build up and thus increases the garments life span.

An eight-millimetre memory foam insert adds support when it comes to the seat pad and is realised in a 3D waffle design, a three-layer, perforated foam that reduces weight and increases breathability. Not heard of goldenGate? This is a technology which is used around the insert's side panels and put simply aids flexibility. The regularFit is optimised for exceptional comfort when in the riding position. This is a more relaxed fit than the ASSOS second-skin racingFit.

4. Endura Pro SL Bib Tight II

With roots in Scotland, when it comes to designing cycling kit specifically for the colder seasons, Endura are experts and their Pro SL Bib Tight II is a great example of this expertise put into practice. Boasting a four-way stretch, windproof and water repellent fabric, this bib tight is made from a high quality Thermoroubaix fabric, which has been used on the panels. These panels have been treated with a PFC Free DWR (Durable Water Repellent) treatment.

Comfort is catered for with a 700 Series seat pad. This has been computer cut and features a “continuously variable profile” (CVP) stretch pad with antibacterial finish. The mesh upper is extremely comfortable against the skin while the Lycra bound straps are incredibly stretchy. Rear-facing reflective detailing on the ankles enhances visibility out on the road.

5. Gore Wear C5 Thermo Bib Tight

Dressing for the conditions shouldn't leave you scratching your head, questioning what clothing will best protect you from the elements. Gore Wear has designed their C5 Thermo Bib Tight to take the guesswork out of getting kitted up for those colder days on the bike. The name says it all, with the bib tight's construction featuring a thermo lining. This increases warmth and is soft backed for added next-to-skin comfort. This has been placed in areas where you particularly do not want the cold to penetrate, namely the knee area.

An ADVANCED seat pad incorporates Gore Windstopper cup technology to keep windchill off and to add breathability. The seam-free mesh bib design adds comfort next to the skin and reduces a friction that could be caused when in a riding position. It is incredibly rare not to find yourself riding on wet roads at some point during autumn, winter or spring, so the inclusion of a wind and spray protection panel is definitely a welcome one.

Keeping your lower body as well as your core warm is essential to reduce the chances of causing injury, browse the complete range of bib tights online or view some of our favourite products in store.
