When the colder temperatures and wet weather of autumn and winter hit then you'll be happy to have the all-around protection of your Repel Bib Tights. The mid-weight fabric helps to keep in warmth while the mesh upper bib section ensures that sweat doesn't linger, instead it's wicked away before it can chill. The outer surface gets a Durable Water Repellent (DWR) treatment so showers and light rain can be ridden through in greater comfort too. Inside the tights, you'll find Altura's Progel insert, this seat pad features strategically placed gel protection for support and cushioning in key contact areas.

Altura also adds their 'Darkproof' reflective detailing, subtle high-visibility panels that blend in seamlessly during the day but really shine when lit up by vehicle headlamps. Changeable conditions with a mix of dry and wet spells need no longer confine you to the indoor trainer, the Repel Bib Tights have the versatility to protect you come what may.
