Hincapie Sportswear didn't choose the name for the Arenberg Men's Tights by accident. They're named after the hardest section of pavé in the hardest race on the European calendar. Countless wheels, forks, and collarbones have fallen victim to the road to Roubaix, including those of Big George himself. Hincapie Sportswear's legendary founder knows how hard this race is, and the Arenberg Tights are designed to reflect the determination it takes to overcome such adverse conditions by giving you the equipment you need to ride through the most unforgiving weather of your local climate.

The new iteration of the Arenberg Tights feature a change in fabric from BodE Thermal to SuperRoubaix. SuperRoubaix is Hincapie's ultimate cold-weather shield, boasting a GSM (grams per square meter) of 245. This isn't lightweight climbing gear; it's armor for dealing with winter's worst tantrums. It wicks moisture away from your skin with a brushed, fleecy lining and the durable outer shell of Lycra and nylon keeps the cold at bay. This protection doesn't come at the cost of an overly-restrictive fit, though — the Arenberg tights have an accommodating four-way stretch that moves with you in the saddle.

The Arenberg Tights' chamois-free construction means that you can layer them over your favorite summer-weight shorts, which the seamless gusset at the crotch helps with, or use them for cross-training. The ankle zippers and elastic drawstring at the waist help keep them in place. The zippered back pocket is an unusual and greatly appreciated addition, allowing you to stow and carry keys or other personal effects while wearing a rain or wind jacket without pockets. Reflective elements help keep you visible in low-light conditions, which are precisely the times when you'll want this kind of insulating power the most.

The Hincapie Sportswear Arenberg Men's Tights are available in five sizes ranging from Small to XX-Large, and in the color Black.

GREAT tights (no chamois)

    Application: Cold weather tights to fit over those expensive bib shorts you already own (and love). Best for 38-50* days. I love these tights.

    By the way, "Arenberg" refers to one of the most famous sections of the often cold and wet Paris-Roubaix bike race.

    Function/features: These Arenberg tights are made from a thick, stretch Lycra material with a fleeced interior (Super Roubaix fabric). These are not "light" tights. These are warm. These tights also have a 9 inch zippered leg opening, a really great (red) waist draw cord for secure fit at the waist, and other nice design details.

    Hincapie gear is designed by George Hincapie - a pro rider and legend who rode in the TdF 17 times (and 7 top-ten finishes at Paris-Roubaix). --It shows in all the design details.--

    Quality of manufacture: The sewing and seams on these Arenberg tights are perfect. I have found uniformly excellent quality and QC in all the Hincapie gear that I own. Bravo to George and his brother Richard who run this company.

    FIT: I am 5'10 and 185. I bought the size L. They fit perfectly. I think the L tights will fit riders around my size and slimmer riders up to 6'1".
