Protect your legs from the elements by kitting yourself out with a pair of tights or trousers from bestselling brands such as Endura and Gore. Keep yourself warm and dry while still allowing your skin to breathe. For the winter-spring rides we have winter cycling tights and thermal cycling tights – great for when the chilly weather rolls in – with a range of different fabrics from lightweight to extra-warm
Cycling tights come in two varieties – waist tights, and more secure bib tights, which loop over the shoulders. For those who want to steer clear of the skin-tight fabrics, cycling trousers could be the answer. Warmth-wise, they’re a good alternative to tights - particularly winter cycling trousers - and many have an insert for a padded liner. Robust enough to offer protection on the trails, they have the added advantage of pockets for maps and mobile phones.
