Pairing warmers with our favorite bib shorts is an easy solution to the mercurial conditions of fall riding, but when the icy weather really settles in, a lightly insulated pair of bib tights becomes a mainstay in our cycling wardrobe. Louis Garneau developed its Course Elite Bib Tights with several of its top element-blocking fabrics for cold-weather rides, which means that you're able to stay warm, dry, and comfortable throughout all of your winter training sessions.
