When it comes to cold-weather kit, you have two choices: go for tights with a built-in chamois or pull Pearl Izumi's Select Classic Women's Tight on over your favorite summer-weight shorts and stick to the chamois you know. Either way, you'll probably stay warm enough, but going the route of the all-in-one winter tights means you'll be stuck with a different chamois that--let's face it--is rarely as nice as the ones you've been riding all summer. Winter base miles can be grueling enough on their own, so there's no reason to add an additional layer of discomfort. The lack of a chamois means the Select Classic Tights are also equipped to follow you on whatever winter cross-training you engage in. They're built with six panels that are stitched together in an anatomic, form-fitting design that layers or stands alone and stretches to move with you whether you're running, spinning, or walking the dog. Whatever the application, the Transfer Dry fabric presents a warm, brushed face to your skin that traps body heat to insulate as you warm up, but it still wicks moisture like Pearl's summer shorts. The tights are finished with reflective branding to help keep you visible during your low-light winter outings.
