Let me preface this with the fact that growing up in FL and living in SC, I do not like cold weather! Today on my ride it was 50 degrees. I wore a long sleeve ceramic base layer, large, long sleeve G-Shield jersey, medium G-Shield bib tights, AV 100 winter gloves and wool socks. I was not cold once during the ride, nor was I overheated at the end. Everything was perfect! Thank you Giordana!
I have the bib short version and I thought I would give the tights a try. I find that they are great for mid 40s and 50s. Fit is great with decent compression.
These winter tights are the best I have ever worn in cold weather (25 degrees F) Wind proof, excellent fit and warm and light!
Perfect Winter Bib Tights
This was a replacement for 4 year old FRC thermal bibs which I ordered because the CS rep said they would be as warm but more wind resistant than FRC thermals. Though not billed as a wind resistant it works for me in the temp range of 45 (my limit) to 50+. Fit was perfect, snug without being restrictive and the same size as my summer Gio bibs. Used about 10x and perfectly happy, ended up ordering the matching GShield Jersey. Fabric quality and overall construction follow Giordana's high standards, definitely worth the premium price.
Comfortable and Warm Bibs.
Warm and comfortable bib tight. I only purchase Giordana kit, and for good reason. They simply produce the best quality cycling kit, and their G-Shield line is a great representation of the quality of the goods.
