When the temperature drops regular pairs of cycling shorts just don’t cut it. Cold knees, the wind and water splashing your shins and generally feeling the chill is just no fun at all as a cyclist which is where specific cycling tights are worth their weight in gold.
With many made from wind and water-resistant materials and just as many using thermal linings, cycling leggings and tights are designed to keep you warm, dry and comfortable in the very worst conditions. Like regular cycle shorts, cycling tights are available as standalone tights, leggings or even as a pair of bib tights.
Bib tights offer a more secure fit with no risk of them dropping and also provide a little additional protection due to the raised front and back, which can be a godsend on a cold day if your jersey starts to ride up. Some regular cycling tights even come without padding so you can wear your favourite set of cycle shorts underneath meaning you can ride in comfort for hours to come. Whatever type of cycling tights you need, you can find a pair for you right here.
