When we're not in the thick of the summer riding season, it can be hard to find the motivation to ride. We're well aware in order to make gains and progress our fitness, we'll have to ride outdoors when the weather is often at its worse, but come spring, those efforts will be well worth it in the early season races. If you're serious about riding, you'll need some clothing that will help you ride comfortably year round and that's exactly where the S-Phyre Bib Long Tight from Shimano comes in. You'll receive excellent protection and comfort that will have you training at your best in cold, wet, and 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.
