Description

Make it easy.

Designing an all-weather jacket is easy, because all the body parts your protecting tend to stay relatively static compared to what your legs are doing in the saddle. Louis Garneau's Mondo Evo II Thermal Bib Tights address the more technical difficulties of the latter by positioning different materials in different locations in order to ensure that you're protected from winter weather from the waist down. We know, because LG designed them for us.

Though this is the second generation of Mondo Evo bibs, the construction remains largely unchanged—a testament to the fact that the Canadian manufacturer knows what it's doing. The fabrics include panels of Light WindDry 2 and Light Wind Pro incorporated into a general body construction of HeatMaxx, a thermally insulating material. The lower back and front legs use Light WindDry 2, a four-way stretch material that fends off wind and water. This is interrupted at the knees with Light Wind Pro, a new material that takes advantage of Polartec Wind Pro's tight weave to block four times more wind than other fleece materials. Your knees lead into the wind, and there also the main joint involved in turning the cranks.

Since Light Wind Pro isn't a laminate, it's more breathable than typical wind-blocking materials. The Light Wind Pro knees have been given a DWR treatment, are durable, and won't pill. Though it's only a cosmetic concern, we find the last benefit especially attractive. The bib straps themselves are insulated, too, courtesy of Highlander Mesh, and they continue the general theme of wicking and moisture management found in all of the Mondo Evo Bib Tights' materials.

The tights are constructed with 11 panels of the above fabrics to ensure an anatomically appropriate fit. Flatlock seams eliminate chafing and the articulation in the knees means that you're movements in the saddle won't be restricted. Nine inch ankle zips help get the tights on and off, and ankle grips keep them from riding up once they're on. Reflective on the ankle zipper help keep you visible in low-light conditions.

The tights are finished with LG's 4 Motion chamois. It consists of the usual high-density padding in various thicknesses throughout. It also has the raised plateaus of padding where you want support and recessed valleys for areas you'd rather didn't bear any load. The real star of this insert, though, is the cutout in the back, which is bridged by vented mesh instead of foam, so it allows for exponentially more stretch and movement than a non-mesh panel. This is what recommends the 4 Motion for long hours in the saddle. It moves with you through all positions in the saddle while grinding out base miles in the cold months. The gel inserts and foam padding are perforated throughout with additional venting up front to promote breathability, and the outer skin is made with Cupron, which incorporates copper for anti-odor benefits.

  • Thermal tights for riding through foul weather
  • Strategic combination of materials for winter training
  • Combines wind- and water-resistance with breathable stretch
  • Fit and articulation designed specifically for cycling
  • Advanced chamois construction centers the tights around comfort

A great pair of bibs

  • Fit: Runs large

I’m glad I spent the money on these I was skeptical at first but read the other reviews and liked what I read they do run a little big which worked out for me I’m 6’-1” and 240# the craftsmanship and materials are top notch riding in 20-30s and I can only say they feel great

Novice- first cold weather gear

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: XL

First cold weather long bib. Extremely pleased. Not restrictive, kept warm on rides in the 40’s. Am sure would be good much colder. Very comfortable chamois. Generally 20-25 mile rides. Seemed an excellent value on sale.

Avg. ride time: 5h 42m per week

One <30F Ride - Very Happy

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

Used these for first time on 36mi ride with start temp at 29F and end temp at 43F, 5-10mph cross winds and an average pace of 18.6mph. Prior to ordering these I'd been using some basic Castelli bib shorts with leg warmers. What a difference!

Very warm and cozy, especially where it counts. No overheating. Could easily wear these down to 15F is my guess. I'm 156# and 5'10" with 30" waist. Size Medium was perfect - if anything perhaps a tiny bit loose right at the hip, but happy with that as there was no mobility limitation on the bike.

First time I'm looking forward to more winter riding!

Great tights

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large

This is my first set of tights and I wanted something to take me deeper into the shoulder seasons here in CO. It was low 50’s with moderate wind when I took these out for the first time and they were fantastic. The wind panels are ingenious and I felt bombproof the whole way! I’m 6’ tall, weigh 178lbs with a 33” waist and pretty big legs/butt. The Large fit well , but probably could have downsized to the med.

The micro-fleece inside is not very heavy. At the telos I rode I probabaly could have gotten by with knee warmers, but I only noticed getting a little warm on the uphills.

These get a strong thumbs up from me!

Pretty good

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: Medium

These are pretty good, usually don't review this quickly but didn't see many reviews. I wanted a wind blocking tight, but most have WB all the way down the front. These have no WB at the knee, just thermal material. I find WB restrictive when the pace picks up, i.e. PI Amfib (and several other seemed similar). Complete WB in the front are fine in my estimation if you are just dinking around, but if you're picking up the pace I need something less restrictive. The other variation is wind blocking legs and nothing over groin area (I completely don't get this). So back to the LGs; they move, flex, and regulate temperature great, almost like I didn't notice them. Quick paced road group this morning, 32 F degree standing temp, and through the valleys the garmin indicated in the high 20s. I don't know why more tights don't have the flexible knee area, just makes sense. Oh one thing, sizing. I’m typically an M, about a 32 waist, but ended up with an S (I guess as the sizing indicated). That being said I have skinny legs, and that seemed to be where the M didn’t fit well. So if you have bigger legs maybe you would stick with more traditional sizing.
