What is it?
This is our all-new, cutting edge Early Winter tight. Based on our S7 platform, these tights have been updated to give you a new level of performance.
How to use it
Riding in this climaRange gives you some freedom to choose what you wear with these tights. Providing great protection from the cold, they fill the gap between fall or spring outfits and full winter ones. Warm yet breathable, they allow your body to stay at its ideal temperature. They come with or without insert. The without insert version has exactly the same construction, making them perfect for those non-riding activities in early winter. ALS Tips: Pair them with a long sleeve skinFoil, a falkenZahn or even a shell on those warmer days. Or, when the temperature drops, grab your Habu jacket. These tights are flexible, and by pairing them with different products from our Early Winter climaRange you can create an outfit perfect for every ride.
Based on our S7 short, these tights give you all the benefits of their state of the art design and comfort, but with full-length legs. Created with strategically placed areas of additional insulating material to allow you to perform and stay warm, they bring Royal Comfort to our winter tights.
Using many of features found in both the T.tiburuShorts_S7 and TK.tiburuKnicker, we have worked hard to make sure that we use the perfect materials in key places.
RX Medium Fabric with WR treatment
For added insulation we have used RX Medium throughout the majority of these tights. The WR treatment is added to help shed water from road spray and light showers, but doesn't make the tights waterproof (no membrane).
To make sure that they fit perfectly, we have redesigned the rear knee portion of the tight. Tapered, with multiple panels and made from our RX Light fabric, this new, more elastic and breathable area makes the legs noticeably more comfortable.
A feature first used on our s5 winter tights in 2010, this has been proven to keep you more comfortable while riding in cooler weather. By inserting a panel of our Stratagon windblock fabric between the crotch and abdomen panel of the short, we have protected this cold-sensitive area from wind chill, reducing the need to urinate on those cooler rides.
Loop free ankle
Deciding to do away with all of the loops on our tights is something new for W15. Why? We find they are more comfortable. To keep the legs firmly in place, we have put the same elastic used on our S7 short, which is comfortable enough that you will not notice it.
To give you ultimate flexibility in what you wear with these tights, we have included a small pocket on the back bib of these tights so you have somewhere to put your essentials. A new idea for W15, we feel it gives you more flexibility for the Early Winter climaRange.
Another standard for W15 tights are our new reflectors to increase visibility during those dark winter rides.
- RX Medium fabric with WR (water repellent) treatment
- Double layer of RX Medium on the knee for increased insulation
- Anatomically cut rear of leg
- Loop free construction
- Back pocket
- Integrated Pad Protection (IPP) - patent pending
- equipe insert with goldenGate
- Large reflectors on ankles
Flexible, warm and comfortable, these are our highly engineered new generation of Early Winter tights, allowing you the ultimate choice of what to pair them with. Based on the S7 insert, they give a new level of comfort. Coming either with or without an insert, you can benefit from their performance and comfort during other early winter activities.
