I would appreciate a recommendation on cycling tights. In the past I wore the Performance polypropylene/Lycra brand tights. I do not think that they are offered anymore. Would Lycra/nylon be warm enough in temperatures above 32 degrees?
I've road lots of tights over the years (over 20) and i have to say that the nicest for fall riding, when it might be cold when you start and gets warmer as the day goes by is still wool tights. I wear my cycling shorts under them, and nothing breathes like wool.
Anyway thats my 2 cents. Smart wool mikes some nice ones.
I like Sugoi's windproof and Rapha's winter tights. Rapha has new Deep Winter tights this year. They're windproof now. I also prefer bib tights with no chamois so I can wear my favorite shorts under them.
Question: What is the reason to buy cold weather bib knickers and not bib tights? They have thermal bib knickers but being a knicker means part of your legs are exposed. I mean, is it cold outside or not?
