While the thought of riding in cycling tights without a chamois seems a bit counterintuitive, we can actually think of a few good reasons why. One is that you already have your favorite cycling shorts with a chamois that agrees with you and you simply need some extra layering for cooler conditions. The other is that it opens up the versatility of the bibs for crossing over into other sports like running or cross-country skiing. Whatever your reason is, the S-Phyre Bib Long Tight Without Chamois from Shimano fits the bill nicely and provides excellent lower body protection whenever you need to guard against harsh winter conditions. Shimano blesses the S-Phyre with an anatomical 3D design cut from 37 C windproof thermal fabric with a brushed fleece backing for excellent insulating warmth and pedaling comfort. Shimano claims the moisture-absorbent carrier top is ideally matched to the ventilation of S-Phyre baselayers and jerseys. Additionally, it receives a water-repellent treatment and strategically placed wind and water resistant neoprene on the outside that keeps you drier when facing precipitation or road spray. We really appreciate the two slider front zipper that allows for easy nature breaks and the flat-bonded seams that practically eliminate the chance of friction, irritation, and chafing. Final details include the lie flat leg cuffs that fit perfectly with the S-Phyre overshoes creating an integrated system solution ideal for training and racing throughout the cold months.
