Chapeau Cycling Tempo Thermal Bib Tights

Chapeau Tempo Thermal Bib Tights

What they say

As our entry level winter tight, the focus is on getting the basics right and not shouting about it. The pad is from Dolomiti in Italy and is recommended for rides up to 5 hours in duration. The fabric also hails from Italy and offers a great balance of comfort, warmth and flexibility. Of course, none of these count for much if the fit isn’t bringing it altogether. It is here we hope our real world testing and development shows through.

  • Reflective
  • UV protection
  • Thermal
  • Silicone ankle grippers
