    Year round.

    For cyclists who try to maintain fitness year round, winter poses a pretty obvious dilemma. Winter roads are often un-rideable unless you have a fat bike, so even the most bike-centric of us will often branch out into cross-training in order to avoid the indoor trainer. Louis Garneau's Optimum Mat Tights are, well, optimal for those situations. They'll serve as running tights during cross-training on bright winter afternoons, but while the roads are clear in late fall and early spring, they'll also ride just fine over your favorite pair of summer-weight cycling shorts. Either way, they provide protection against cold air without risk of stifling you.

    • Chamois-free tights for cross-training in the cold
    • Light material provides coverage without stifling
    • Mesh inserts behind the knees boost ventilation
    • Drawstring waistband cinches down the fit
    • Flatlock seams reduce the irritation of training in the cold
    • Pockets provide discreet storage for keys and gels
    • Reflective elements help keep you sparkly in dim conditions
    • Item #LGN00HO

    Unanswered Question

    This is maybe too much to ask, but I'm looking for a good winter (20-40 degree range) pant (doesn't have to be a tight) for mountain biking - that could potentially serve as a snowboarding base layer. I'm curious if these are insulated enough for at least the biking - boarding is just a bonus. For winter mtn biking, I typically wear a spring / summer short (zoic) over top of thermal baselayer bottoms and that works fine, but those baselayers (which you don't want to just wear open / biking style) can get too hot. Thoughts?
