Description

Year round.

For cyclists who try to maintain fitness year round, winter poses a pretty obvious dilemma. Winter roads are often un-rideable unless you have a fat bike, so even the most bike-centric of us will often branch out into cross-training in order to avoid the indoor trainer. Louis Garneau's Optimum Mat Tights are, well, optimal for those situations. They'll serve as running tights during cross-training on bright winter afternoons, but while the roads are clear in late fall and early spring, they'll also ride just fine over your favorite pair of summer-weight cycling shorts. Either way, they provide protection against cold air without risk of stifling you.

  • Chamois-free tights for cross-training in the cold
  • Light material provides coverage without stifling
  • Mesh inserts behind the knees boost ventilation
  • Drawstring waistband cinches down the fit
  • Flatlock seams reduce the irritation of training in the cold
  • Pockets provide discreet storage for keys and gels
  • Reflective elements help keep you sparkly in dim conditions

Warm pants

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These are great for the early more brisk bike rides. Very nice and comfortable with extra warmth on the cold days.

Unanswered Question

This is maybe too much to ask, but I'm looking for a good winter (20-40 degree range) pant (doesn't have to be a tight) for mountain biking - that could potentially serve as a snowboarding base layer. I'm curious if these are insulated enough for at least the biking - boarding is just a bonus. For winter mtn biking, I typically wear a spring / summer short (zoic) over top of thermal baselayer bottoms and that works fine, but those baselayers (which you don't want to just wear open / biking style) can get too hot. Thoughts?
