For cold days in the saddle when temperatures are icy enough to make knee warmers and shorts not quite enough, the stretchy, windproof construction of De Marchi's Corsa WP Tights will keep you protected without making you sacrifice the freedom of movement you get from your favorite pair of bib shorts. Windproof paneling on the upper thighs blocks out frigid gusts, while the brushed inner polyester face keeps a protective layer of warm air between the cold and your skin. The material also features a lightweight waffle pattern for enhanced lofted insulation for your hardworking knees and core. De Marchi includes its Duro Air chamois, which provides high density, ventilated foam with a built in pressure relief channel and extra protection in the areas you need it for long term comfort across the winter base miles. An upper bacteriostatic microfiber layer helps to lessen irritation and discomfort during high mileage training rides, while a quarter zip and foot stirrups work with the stabilizing mesh bibs to provide a contoured, secure fit.
