What are cycling tights?christie_zqx
Cycling tights are not all that different from bike shorts except that they provide coverage for the full length of your leg. They usually include a chamois and come as waist tights or bib tights. However, cycling shorts and tights are designed for two different environments. Shorts are designed to keep you cool in warm weather, while tights will keep you warm in cold weather. Often, cycling tights are made from Thermo Roubaix, a material that’s soft, stretchy, warm, and breathable. Because of the wet, dreary weather and possible snowfall you cycle through in winter, tights should be wind and water-resistant. These protective materials can limit flexibility, so many quality cycling tights incorporate panels that only block wind and water in the most susceptible places and leave the rest of the tights super stretchy and breathable.
