Warm and comfortable
Chamois could have more padding

The Flashlight Thermal Bib Tights are made for riding in the depths of winter, with high visibility prints and a soft and high stretch fleece backed fabric.

The Flashlight range has been designed to achieve maximum visibility for the rider in low light conditions, this is reassuring when commuting on a foggy winters morning on a busy A road. The geometric reflective trims are placed in key areas to give 360-degree visibility and work well, especially when paired with other clothing from the Flashlight range.

The fabric has just the right amount of stretch in it to feel comfortable but still supportive and does a fair job of blocking out wind. The fleece back keeps the legs at a steady temperature, we've tested these tights from just below freezing to around 10 degrees' c and found ourselves to be happily gliding along without feeling out of sorts.

In use, neither the bib straps nor silicone gripper equipped leg bottoms give you any bother, in fact the fit is spot on and nothing unduly rides up, falls down or rubs.

The Cytech chamois is generally comfortable and is well designed but is a little underpadded for this testers liking, especially for longer days in the saddle.

In conclusion the Flashlight Bib Tights keep you warm, safe and comfortable on your winter rides, and at £60 they represent fantastic value for money, even if the chamois is a little under padded.
