- What waterproof/resistant bib tights?
Lusso Max Repel can be had for around £40 and are absolutely fantastic. I wear my most comfortable 3/4 bibs underneath and that seems to do the trick for any 3-4 hour ride in heavy rain in Spring/ Autumn/ Winter.
In my opinion the key to any waterproof stuff on the bike is insulation. You need another layer in between the Waterproof Lusso’s and skin, so in the Summer I have worn my lightest, thinnest 3/4 bibs underneath and not overheated. A good example of why I say insulation is important is I have some CAstelli Nano Light stuff which is also very waterproof but as soon as it rains the coolness of the rain instantly gets transferred to skin so even though skin is dry it might as well be getting wet with how cold the skin feels…Posted 4 years agoJunkyardMember
Stealth but pricey
max repel repel but are not actually waterproof and I would not take mine out in proper rain and expect to be dry
FWIW Stealth when it is proper raining or water on the ground. These will keep you dry to biblical levels IME
Repel for drizzle ,light rain or generally crappy weather
Stealth do lines and unlinedPosted 4 years ago
the unlined are a touch cold once wet in deppest winter but not enough to induce chills but not quite comfortable either
Like you i assume the fleece lined would be too warm for many conditionsLeeWSubscriber
Stealth are great when they work but I’ve sent two pairs back to Endura (for a full refund) after they just didn’t work any more.
I had the thermal ones first which were very (maybe too) warm, they lasted about a year. The second pair I bought were the regular ones which lasted a bit longer. I did wear them for MTB which may not have helped, but I did look after them using the correct washing/reproofing procedures.
Endura were superb though both times, they had them back tested them and instructed Wiggle/CRC to refund in full – and return postage.Posted 4 years ago
Does anyone know where the Pearl Izumi Amfib can be found for a good price? I am in need of a second pair of winter tights and before buying Lusso again I think the Pearl Izumi’s may be worth a try. A quick Google suggests the cheapest a Medium can be had for is £90-100 😕Posted 4 years agojonkMember
