Winter Training: Keeping warm on the bike whilst training

Endura Equipe have the answer to keeping warm and dry during a cold damp winter with their Thermo Windshield Biblong full length tights.

Designed by the Endura company in Scotland, and who better than the Scots to design something to keep you warm when the temperatures plummet, the multi panel, multi fabric construction is just the job to keep the winter out of the muscles and joints as you pound out the miles.

Not for nothing Cycling Plus says “… these are excellent for British winters” and gave them 5 out of 5 in their December 2011 issue.

Available in black with the stylish Equipe branding, the double stitching provides an excellent quality of construction. The winter bib tights are available in small to extra extra large sizes and as you can see from the picture (right), it’s more like a ‘body suit’ without the arms.

The main body of these biblongs is made of wicking, fast drying Thermolite® fabric, while a breathable Jacquard® Stretch Mesh panel at the upper rear ensures a well vented, dry back. At the small of the back, there is also an easy accessible small pocket for a phone, gels or keys etc.

We all know that riding in the winter will see us on wet roads so it’s not just important that the clothing keeps us warm but also dry too. Therefore these biblongs feature waterproof and windproof softshell panels on the shins and, especially important to ensure comfort on the bike, at the seat area to keep you dry and warm.

This means that not only will the legs stay dry, but the backside too!

The shorts part of the ‘suit’ features the acclaimed 800 Series Endurance moulded pad developed by the riders in the Endura Racing team so that not only are you warm and dry but comfortable on the seat of the bike as well.

At the bottom of the legs are grippers like you would find on a pair of shorts as well as ankle zips to get them on and off easily. There is also a fast access contrast zipper on the fly.
