Behind the product
Why we made it
For cyclists who prefer winter training outdoors, these are less a pair of tights and more a well-engineered toolkit of solutions for the problems associated with cold-weather cycling. They keep you off the trainer and connected to the road with a suite of technologies combining our S9 racing platform with the next evolution of our Winter 3/3 seasonal innovations. The result is the best fitting and most supportively compressive weatherproof bib tights we’ve ever pulled on. Light precipitation, knifing wind so frigid you can see it, and chamois-stinging road spray—any of them can prematurely end a winter ride, but these tights are engineered to stop them all.

Technology overview

The finer details

FEATURED FABRICS

Though OSMOS Heavy, a stretchy insulator, constitutes the tights’ body, the key textiles are our membrane-equipped SPHERE Ultra and SPHERE Medium. The weatherproof SPHERE panels are situated on the knees, thighs, hips, crotch, and lower back. Taped seams and DWR treatment are further proof against watery ingress.
CONSTRUCTION/FIT

Our aeroFit is the most aggressive, most aerodynamic, most compressive, and—simply—the fastest option in our racing line.
ENGINEERING

A-Lock Engineering: The same compressive, race-tuned fit from our Summer and Spring/Fall S9 line, including the stabilizing reinforcement of the Carbon Xbib and insert-supporting ergoBox.
ENGINEERING

twinDeck: Situates OSMOS Heavy under SPHERE Ultra across the front of the tights, protecting the former’s insulation behind the latter’s weatherproofing and maintaining breathability throughout.
ENGINEERING

waterBarrier: Geoprene cuffs wrap the shins in waterproof protection to fend off road spray and protect a common culprit in loss of body heat. Finished with reflective bands at the back.
INSERT

EQUIPE RS Winter Insert: Race-spec elastic interface insert in 3D basalt colorway, minus the kraterCooler ventilation holes in the front.
INSERT

goldenGate: A stitching pattern that anchors the front and back but lets the insert’s body float, allowing the chamois to move with your body rather than against it.
INSERT

superAir microShock foam: A light, shock-absorbing foam that springs back to its original shape, filling the gaps that open and close between body and chamois during the pedal stroke.
INSERT

kukuPenthouse: Replaces the summer S9 insert’s kraterCooler with an additional panel of OSMOS Heavy, adding soft insulation as part of our blasenSchutz crotch protection design.
