Towards the end of last year (2016!) we sent London rider Beth Hodge a bundle of lovely Sportful cycling kit to put through its paces. You can read her first impressions on all of the items here, and now after several months of riding she’s brought us her thoughts on the Fiandre NoRain bibtights.
Designed for the very worst weather, these feature an extra layer of material over the thighs, knees and back. They offer a full length upper body with a zip and come in at £120 in sizes XS to XXL. Here’s how they got on…
Cold, wet, windy…I could continue. Sound familiar? That’ll be winter on the bike and we’ve only just got started. For those who want to get immersed in such a season, proper kit is needed making a potentially unpleasant experience slightly more pleasant. Anything that can keep us going for longer on the bike in the winter months is a must, and especially for riders like me whose veins freeze at the thought of below 10 degrees, comfort is key.
Winter bib tights are the most essential of winter wardrobe items. I’ve been testing the Fiandre Norain Bibtight, an item of clothing I would certainly describe as a heavyweight in the winter wardrobe arena.
