For serious cyclists, there is no offseason. Making gains and maintaining fitness is often done when the weather is at its worse and if you hope to get a leg up on the competition, you'll need the right clothing to ride comfortably year round. Go ahead and invest in the S-Phyre Bib Long Tight from Shimano and you'll get treated to unrivaled protection and comfort that might actually have you looking forward to cold, wet, windy conditions. Shimano crafts these bibs with an Anatomic 3D cut and uses high-tech 37-degree C materials to keep the rider at the optimal core temperature for peak performance. Preventing chill from wind and precipitation, Shimano strategically places a windproof and water-repellent neoprene on the outer surface, while the thermal insulation core and brushed fleece on the inside protect you over a large swath of wintery conditions. One of our favorite features is the double zipper up front that allows for a taller bib section to keep the core warm while allowing for easier nature breaks. At the lower legs, Shimano uses a 3-layer Neoprene construction for heat retention and preventing road spray from soaking through. Additionally, it pairs well with shoe covers and booties that you're likely to wear. Reflective elements also help increase your visibility in the lower light conditions you're likely to face during the colder months. Last up is the S-Phyre anatomic chamois, placing the padding in such a way that it offers targeted support. Its integrated Shock Absorption Technology evenly distributes pressure and absorbs shock for all-day comfort in the saddle. Everything is held in place seamlessly, eliminating chafing and pressure points while 3mm perforated vent holes provide impressive ventilation and moisture management in all conditions.
