Winter is where your summer cycling fitness is built. Get the base right and you’ll be flying into your spring intervals. And with the Women’s FS260-Pro Thermo Waist Tights, you’ve no excuses not to get out and build some impressive base miles. When the cold temperatures start to bite, the super soft and luxurious Thermoroubaix® fabric provides outstanding levels of warmth and insulation. Invariably you’ll also have to contend with damp drizzly conditions, but the DWR (Durable Water Repellent) finish will keep you riding comfortably for longer. And it’s eco-friendly too, being free of harmful PFCs. Women’s Specific 600 Series Seat Pad Next comes the on-the-saddle comfort, and for this, the S260-Pro Thermo tights get treated to the women’s specific 600 series seat pad. This premium Italian made stretch pad is sculpted from a single block of foam but with a “Continuously Variable Profile” (CVP) places more support where you need it and removes it where you don’t. This is complemented by gel inserts for even greater comfort. A super-soft fast-wicking microfibre face fabric, with a permanent antibacterial finish, is brilliant for longer rides and a mesh panel improves air circulation to prevent sweat build-up. Details are done just right too. Bonded cuffs at the ankle feature raw-cut edges for the smoothest and most comfortable fit. Ankle zippers make on and off easy and reflective trims keep you seen when training rides stretch into the evening or start before sunrise. No excuses. Winter cycling here we come.
