S-Phyre Bib Long Tight

When we're not in the thick of the summer riding season, it can be hard to find the motivation to ride. We're well aware in order to make gains and progress our fitness, we'll have to ride outdoors when the weather is often at its worse, but come spring, those efforts will be well worth it in the early season races. If you're serious about riding, you'll need some clothing that will help you ride comfortably year round and that's exactly where the S-Phyre Bib Long Tight from Shimano comes in. You'll receive excellent protection and comfort that will have you training at your best in cold, wet, and windy conditions.

Shimano crafts these bibs with an Anatomic 3D cut and uses high-tech 37-degree C materials to keep the rider at the optimal core temperature for peak performance. Preventing chill from wind and precipitation, Shimano strategically places a windproof and water-repellent neoprene on the outer surface, while the thermal insulation core and brushed fleece on the inside protect you over a large swath of wintery conditions. One of our favorite features is the double zipper up front that allows for a taller bib section to keep the core warm while allowing for easier nature breaks.

At the lower legs, Shimano uses a 3-layer Neoprene construction for heat retention and preventing road spray from soaking through. Additionally, it pairs well with shoe covers and booties that you're likely to wear. Reflective elements also help increase your visibility in the lower light conditions you're likely to face during the colder months.

Last up is the S-Phyre anatomic chamois, placing the padding in such a way that it offers targeted support. Its integrated Shock Absorption Technology evenly distributes pressure and absorbs shock for all-day comfort in the saddle. Everything is held in place seamlessly, eliminating chafing and pressure points while 3mm perforated vent holes provide impressive ventilation and moisture management in all conditions.

Like others, I bought these on sale in the summer and was curious how they would perform when the temperatures dropped. Overall, I can't complain. I have about 6 hours in the saddle with them for a few rides, and here are some thoughts: 1. Fit - true to size. The zippers on the cuffs are a little short and the upper part of the bibs with the zipper felt a little snug/restrictive initially but I have adjusted. 2. Warmth - I have been out between the upper teens and low thirties, and other than the giblets getting chilly for a few minutes, I love them. They compare favorably with other cold weather pants I own. 3. Chamois - these are comfortable and no issues. 4. Cost - like others, I would not pay the full price, but if this were the only pair of cold weather bibs that I owned, I would pay a couple hundred for them.

I tried these for the first time this week in 30 degree weather. The did keep me warm. They look great and feel good. However, they could use more material around the butt/crotch area to keep those parts a bitter more insulated. I also wish the zippers on the legs went up higher to make getting these things on/off a lot easier. Would I pay $300 + for them? No way! Are they worth buying on clearance for under $100? Yes!

So I bought these at 75% off. I was amazed with them starting wiht the packing. They came in what can only be described as a beautiful gift box. They are a little thicker than I expected. I am on the short squatty side with very large legs. I went with XL which is what all my other bibs are. They are tight on my legs and very snug up top. I really like the feel of the materials and it seems like it will be a great addition to my winter riding gear. Its warmed up here now so they will have to wait for the first ride until next season. The chamois seems very well constructed.

I used these tights for the first time just yesterday (2/22/20). Picked up for a great price here at CC on sale (67% off). For just over $100, they're a great bargain. On my ride, temps ranged from 30F to start, and rose to 50F about five hours later. I was comfortable the whole time. I did not sweat excessively. The only chamois I really like is the Assos chamois, so I wore my Assos Tiburon shorts underneath the S-Phyre tights. Yes, that's a double chamois, and yes, I wish they offered these tights in a non-chamois version. But, I've worn double chamois before, and frankly, the extra cushioning is actually quite comfortable. No slipping around at all. I love the fit of these tights. I'm 5'9" and weigh 153 lbs. These tights fit me perfectly. I have the medium size. They have just the right amount of snugness. No bagginess, no wrinkles. That probably helps with evaporation and thus not sweating excessively. I like some of the little touches, like the zipper at the ankles and the reflective neon green just below the calves.

These are beautifully made, well fitting tights. Material is durable and the seams and stitches are clean and nice. The came packed in a snazzy black box which made them feel very luxe. The fit is spot on and the panels fit me right. These are for colder days and offer good protection from the wind. Now for the critique: the chamois is nice but I’m kind of a small guy and found the chamois a bit wide. I get some chaffing on rides longer than one hour. Also- the neoprene legs are an interesting idea but would prefer a more ventilated option to prevent sweat. Not a bad pair of bibs at a discount but you could do better at this price point. I’m 5’7” 148 lbs and got the medium.

What is the product goal?

Bottom line: Sweaty shins, numb penis. I ordered these with high hopes that they'd be my go-to when the weather is cold and/or messy, but, after wearing them a few times, I'm left wondering what the goal of this product really is and why they selected the materials used. The good: Nice chamois. No complaints there. As a pair of tights, they do a pretty solid job, but I'm not going to wear them below 40 or if it's wet which is what you might think they are best for by looks, design, and materials. The knee and lower quad area does have some wind block, but, in my opinion, it's badly needed elsewhere. The bad: I'm guessing that the neoprene lower leg would do a good job with heavier water, but the rest of the tights don't follow the same theme. In addition, every time I've worn these, my shins are soaked in sweat because the neoprene doesn't breathe at all. I'd be fine putting up with that if the rest of the bib fit the premise of the lower legs, but that's where there is the disjointed design process seems to come in. There's no butt protection from the spray that you'll surely encounter while needing neoprene on your shins - absolutely nothing. There's no additional wind protection in the front of the groin either. If I'm going out in such nasty conditions that my shins need 1-2mm thick neoprene, you'd better believe I'm going to want wind/water protection for groin and butt. I took these out in low 30F temps and came home with hot and sweaty shins and a numb penis. I'll take the opposite 10 times out of 10. I think that many cyclists have agreed that their shins will survive on their own just fine. It's the last piece of skin to get covered up when the temps drop (knee warmers, knickers), so why are they getting the heaviest coverage of any part on these tights while the whole groin area gets completely ignored? There's not really any weather scenario where these work well. Update: haven't done it yet, but I might as well have my tailor turn these into knickers so I can enjoy them in temps in the 40s and 50s since they are useless below that.

Wow. I was going to buy these but, the penis/shin analogy is just to much to bear. Great review!

Didn’t experience any of this on my 35 mile ride yesterday. In fact, they were amazing.
