Warm legs make longer rides.
Following the evolution of man, we've come from leaf swaddling quadrupedal cave dwellers to bipedal Lycra outfitted cycling machines. It's been a long and sobering adventure, but our instincts still view the arrival of winter as the catalyst to go into our 'caves' for months on end and consume our stockpile of salty foods. Luckily for our species, Craft views the evolution of winter cycling apparel as a way to break the chains of our instinctual prehistoric ways. The Elite Bib Long Tights are your way to get out in the saddle when Mother Nature is furious, and with an ergonomic, weatherproof design, the Elite Bib Long Tights will keep you rolling base mile after base mile.
Craft's Elite Bib Long Tights are made from a calculated blend of Craft's exclusive fabrics that have been designed to work in thermo-regulatory harmony. For leg insulation, the tights use a combination of polyamide and elastane with an elastic membrane. This material selection allows full wind and rain protection, and also creates a contour-following, stretchable fit. Additionally, the fabric is outfitted with a thin fleece backing that further promotes insulated warmth and moisture transfer. The lower back features the tights' most sophisticated fabric, Thermo Cool. This is due in part to the importance of the area's ventilation and core temperature regulation characteristics. Thermo Cool accentuates both by using a hexa-channel fiber that keeps you cool when you're hot and hot when you're cold. Coupled with a hollow fiber outer-layer, the Thermo Cool promotes thorough core insulation while providing efficient moisture transfer.
For a precise and comfortable fit, the Elite Bib Long Tights use a stirrup around the feet. This creates a resistance to shift during leg articulation, and it provides an undeviating layer of insulation throughout the garment. The bib straps feature a minimal cross pattern design, and are made from a nonabrasive brushed thermal fabric.
The Craft Elite Bib Long Tights are available in sizes from X-Small to XX-Large, and in the color Black. Please note that the Long Tights do not include a chamois.
