Stick It to Old Man Winter.
De Marchi has tailored some of the finest cycling clothes since 1946 and are one of the few remaining companies that still insist on manufacturing in Italy. The brand’s technical fabrics are very impressive and all of their products exude a cool understated style. The top-end Cortina Bib Tights are certainly worth a look if you are looking for a reliable cool weather riding companion.
Thicker Roubaix fabric with water repellent coating traps warmth while strategically placed windproof panels protect knees from cold winds. We can attest to taking these bibs out on some windy, sub-freezing rides and we still felt pretty comfortable. The texture on the inside keeps our legs warm, and on the outside, the wind-stopper sections prevents us from getting genuinely cold amid valley roads and long descents. Fundamental to keeping your entire body warm is keeping your core warm and the extended bib upper does a great job of this. The Cortina N-Duro chamois is constructed to provide maximum comfort and reduce pressure and when nature does call, the 1/4in. zip helps lower the extended bib section to make taking that break easier. Reflecting elements on the rear help visibility in low-light. Materials and finish of the tights are first-rate and will withstand several seasons of use.
