ENDURA MEN'S TIGHTS/KNICKERS
Bib-knickers are great for slightly less than or slightly better than temperate conditions -- what's common during spring or fall months. Or, what you'll find in Scotland, which happens to be where Endura designs its esteemed cycling gear like the FS260-Pro Bib-Knickers.
A Gulf Stream from the Atlantic feeds warm air to Scotland, but don’t let that fool you into thinking it's a retirement destination. Because of that eastward moving air mass, wind and clouds prevail and Scotland measures yearly sunshine in hours. What this means to you is that gear designed here is optimized for cool, windy, and wet conditions.
The FS260-Pro Bib-knickers are designed to offer coverage and warmth, and will be fine for light drizzles or wet road conditions, but full-weather protection is not what they're intended for. If you're looking for wet weather gear, check out Endura's line of waterproof cycling gear. These bibs are constructed from Fieldsensor, a high-performance fabric that quickly wicks perspiration and evaporates moisture so you stay dry and chafe-free.
Fieldsensor also provides muscle support to reduce fatigue and keep your legs feeling fresher towards the end of a long ride. At the top of the FS260-Pro, the bib is made from mesh and Lycra for excellent breathability with an unobtrusive fit. Both the bib and knickers feature panels that are cut for an anatomic fit that encourages movement around the bicycle.
All panels are connected using flatlocked seams to prevent irritation, but most important to cycling comfort is the chamois. Endura specs the 600-Series Silver Dry multi-density stretch pad in the FS260-Pro. This pad supports where it's needed most, then tapers away where relief is paramount to cycling coziness. The pad also gets an antibacterial treatment to prevent unwanted science experiments.
The insides of the legs are seamless to prevent abrasion that causes both premature wear and annoyance. Also included in the frustration-free formula are silicone gripper hems to keep the legs from riding up as you're pushing pedals. And, to keep your essential moving parts cozy and performing at their best, Endura gives the FS260-Pro double layer CoolMax knee panels.
The Endura FS260-Pro Bib-Knicker is equipped with reflective piping on sides and rear, and a rear pocket lets you stash keys or identification. It comes in sizes Small through XX-Large, and one color; Black.
