Why We Like The Polare 2 Bib Tight

A little bit of wind can be refreshing in summer but quickly turns devastating on frigid mid-winter rides. Fend off icy, biting wind gusts with the element-fighting power of Castelli's Polare 2 Men's Bib Tights. Made with Gore Windstopper X-Fast fabric across the front and wrapping around the sides, these tights block the chill whether the wind is coming from Mother Nature or as a result of all those watts you're dropping into the pedals. Across the back, Castelli uses its soft, fleecy Thermoflex Core2 fabric for a blend of breathability and warmth that will have you taking the long way home on even the coldest days.

  • Castelli's Polare 2 Bib Tight for racking up miles in cold weather
  • Full GORE WINDSTOPPER X-Fast front for wind protection
  • Thermoflex Core2 back for additional warmth, a brushed fleece inner
  • KISS Air seat pad provides enhanced cushioning without bulk
  • Ankle zips are adjustable and feature reflective detailing

I purchased this bib in 2020 and consistently use it in temperatures between 25 - 45 degrees. After two years, I've been very happy with it. Here's why. - The seams haven't showed any signs of tearing, which is important in a winter bib that takes a good amount of tugging and yanking to get on. -It's warm enough in the coldest conditions yet not unpleasantly hot if a cold morning ride ends in the high 40s or low 50s. -The reflective aspects are key for rides in the early morning or after dusk. Note: I typically wear a pair of shorts (full on padded bike shorts) beneath this bib. I like the added cushion and protection it provides against the wind. The other bonus is that it usually means I only need to wash the shorts unless the ride is really long. Gross. Gross but efficient.

I had a pair of the previous generation of this tight (Polare 2) and it never really felt good to me. These new Polare 3 tights get it right, though. The previous generation seemed incrementally too small for me, these fit great. The previous generation seemed to bind up in weird places and were a bit of a hassle to get on, these are comfortable and a treat to put on. The ankle zips have been moved to the side where they're much easier to operate, which eliminates one of the more annoying quirks of the previous generation. The materials and workmanship on both are, of course, top notch. The only thing I don't understand is why they still equip this tight with their KISS AIR 2 pad instead of their top-of-the-line Progetto X2 AIR pad. Both are great pads, I'd just prefer the nicer option in these otherwise top-of-the-line tights. I can only really comment on their performance in cold, dry weather, but so far, they've been great in the upper 20F temps we've been having here in Chicago. I plan on getting another pair or two since they're considerably nicer than my other winter tights (PI AmFib) and probably 90% as capable.
