Don't forget these details...

Size Specific Pads

All of our padded shorts feature a chamois pad which is size-specific, meaning their size varies in accordance with the size of the short. And for complete comfort on any surface, we vary the foam thickness and density for just the right amount of sit bone support.

Visibility

All our tights feature reflective or hi-vis details as standard, helping you to stay seen in low light conditions. Whether it's a reflective logo or a contrast panel, these illuminating elements will ensure you stand out against the surrounding dark.

No Underwear

All of our padded tights are designed to be worn without underwear. All of our size-specific chamois pads are designed to be worn next to the skin with super soft, antibacterial topsheet material to prevent irritation. No underwear needed.

Tights or warmers

Just like every ride, every set of riding conditions is different – and requires a tailored outfit to match it. Too warm for tights but too cold for bare shins? Leg warmers offer a modular system that can be paired with winter bibs to match the weather, and can be removed (or added) should the forecast shift mid ride.

Men's Training and Racing

As the old adage goes, summer races are won in the winter. Pros often have no choice but to ride through the seasons, and tights are their go-to garment for warding off the worst of the weather. Our Pro Team tights and winter bibs are made with lightweight, technical fabrics for efficient sweat wicking and breathability, with anatomical panel construction for a locked-in fit. And every pair is built around a tailor-made performance chamois pad.

The Pro Team collection includes three chamois pads purpose-built with multiple layers of lightweight, quick-drying foam for elite competition, racing and training.

ALL-ROUND ROAD RIDING

If cooler months are the hardest time to ride, they’re also the most rewarding. Cold, crisp starts into low sun are worth getting out for, and there’s no better time of year for a long, drawn-out coffee stop. For everything from all-day epics to club runs and quick commutes, our road-specific tights and ¾ shorts feature highly technical but slightly less compressive fabrics for a more relaxed, all-round riding fit.

Our Classic chamois – featured in the Classic and Core Bib Shorts – is designed for all-day, everyday comfort, while the Brevet chamois features additional support for long-distance rides.

Adventure

On off-road adventures and multi-day trips, durability, storage and packability are paramount. However, no two trips are the same, so we offer two alternative adventure solutions. Our Cargo Winter tights offer insulation and visibility for riding in low light and temperatures. While our Explore pants are packed full of features for both adventure rides and off-bike exploration.

For comfort on long rides and mixed terrain, our Cargo Bib Shorts feature the Brevet chamois pad with high-density foam for optimal support and perforations for rapid drying overnight.

MTB

There’s no off season when you’re riding dirt. In fact, winter is often when you’ll find the trails at their quietest (and hardest). Cut for freedom of movement on the bike and constructed with highly technical yet hard-wearing materials that won’t rip if you come off it, our trail pants balance lightweight breathability with long-lasting durability.
