Road.cc Thermo Biblong Review
"The Equipe Thermo biblongs are full length tights designed for road riding in cold or wet weather. The fabric is Roubaix style - meaning it's fleecy on the inside, lycra on the outside - and it does the job very well. These test tights have been worn for some long rides in nasty conditions, and they definitely kept me as warm as any pair of winter tights can.
For when the rain starts falling, the panels covering knees and shins have an extra water-resistant coating to protect against the muck and spray thrown up by the front wheel - and also do a good job, again as much as any pair of tights can without resorting to full-on waterproof overtrousers.
Where the water-resistant fabric meets the Roubaix fleecy fabric, they overlap, creating an extra layer of protection just where you need it in cold conditions: over for the knee. The same water-resistant fabric is employed on the seat panels as well, for those who ride in bad weather without mudguards.
The quality of construction is excellent. The seams joining the panels are all very neat and tidy, with hardly a thread out of place."
