Thermal jerseys, knit gloves, and Pearl Izumi's Select Escape Thermal Cycling Bib Tights are as synonymous with fall as scorn for pumpkin spice lattes. The tights' softly brushed fabric presents a soft, lightly lofted layer to your skin, adding comfort by trapping body heat and breathing to eliminate internal moisture.
The Select Escape model may lack a few of the lux finishing details of Pearl's more expensive tights, but when the leaves are changing and the temperatures are dropping, our number one priority is warmth that breathability. The latest iteration of Pearl's go-to workhorse bib tights don't let us down whether we're building spring base miles or heading out for an autumnal spin in search of seasonal coffee drinks.

Good value on bibs
- Fit: Runs small
- Size Bought: Medium
- Height: 5'9"

I held out for months because I didn't want to spend the $ on bib tights. I didn't think they would make that much of a difference. I have wore them twice now (Road and MTB) and they worked phenomenal. They run on the tighter side but are close to true. They are what I would consider 'Thermals'. The price point is good on sale. If your on the fence pull the trigger. Good investment for the avid cyclist.
Great set of bib tights
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size

Worn several times now on chilly NC fall mornings with temps ~40F. Keeps me warm. Chamois is good, comfortable in saddle. Would recommend.
