We've been making our tights better and better for colder weather, and at the same time, we've seen a drop-off in demand for 3/4 knickers. So we fill that gap with the LW Bibtight. LW stands for Light Winter, the conditions that are becoming more and more common.
So we build the upper portion to Team Ineos' specs with the Thermoflex fabric that keeps your thighs and intimate parts warm, and then we add a thinner non-brushed water-repelling Lycra® to the lower legs. To keep the lightweight feel we avoid zippers at the ankles, but we put in our Progetto X2 Air Seamless seat pad because we know this will be your go-to piece for long fall and spring rides.
This lightweight winter cool-weather tight keeps the upper leg warm but reduces coverage on the lower leg for a greater feeling of freedom and "just right" warmth.
