Spending your winter inside, watching old Tour de France DVDs while spinning mindlessly on a trainer may seem like an excellent idea—until you realize your friends are riding outside. As the top winter cycling tight from Sugoi, the RS ZeroPlus Tights protect you from cold winds and wet roads while keeping you comfortable during long rides.
The tights are made with ten fabric panels that follow the countours of the body, working with your shape to keep the tights in place and avoid bunching and pulling. Constructed from Sugoi's best winter fabrics, Firewall 320 and Firewall 220, the tights are sewn with flat seams to reduce chafing, and lay closer to the skin for a better fit. Both Firewall fabrics have water and wind resistant properties that keep you dry and warm on misty winter mornings. Panels of Firewall 320 run down the front of the tights, where the legs are prone to the effects of wind and moisture. Firewall 220 is placed in areas that are not as effected by wind, but still need adequate coverage from the elements. Power Lycra paneling gives better stretch to the tights.
The bibs are made of Mobil Mesh, a proprietary Sugoi fabric. This spandex mesh provides mobility and excellent ventilation while it wicks moisture away from your body. To secure the tights around the ankles, Sugoi added a seven-inch locking zipper on each leg. Gripper elastic around the bottom hem furthers the security of the leg, and a five-inch front zipper makes bathroom breaks easier while out riding. 3M Scotchlite reflective material runs down the ankle zippers and accents the front and rear logos.
The tights come with the Formula FX insert. This chamois offers solid performance for everyone from elite racers to dedicated weekenders. The stretchy, high density padding adds support where it's needed most, under pressure points, to soften road vibrations. A molded center channel adds additional pressure relief to your perineal area. Four-way stretch side panels mold to the contours of your body so your movement isn't inhibited when you stand up to sprint.
The Sugoi RS ZeroPlus 320 Bib Tight comes only in black and is available Small through XX-Large.
