Until autumn gives way to winter, we don't typically like riding in bib tights with winter-weight protection. The reasons are obvious: too much insulation or wind-resistance means we overheat. The Sportful Fiandre No-Rain Team Bib Tights address this, providing just enough insulation and water-resistance to handle the season of the falling leaves without the added knee, thing, and lower back protection that recommend the standard Fiandre No-Rain tights for cycling in the wet cold of winter. Though they lack those additional panels of protection, the No-Rain Team Bib Tights still feature a body construction of No-Rain Warm material. It's a stretchy, fleece-lined fabric that's hit with Sportful's nanotech water-repellent treatment. Though it isn't enough to keep you dry in a sideways-blowing monsoon, it'll hold off normal precipitation no problem. No-Rain Warm is also insulating and very breathable, so if you get too hot on a climb, these bibs will wick away moisture before you freeze on the descent. The Fiandre No-Rain Bib Tights feature Sportful's Bodyfit Pro cut, which is the same fit that professionals on Bahrain-Merida and Trek-Segafredo ride in the peloton. Some cold-weather tights fit like thermal underwear, producing slack that lets the chamois or the seams get out of place and causing havoc from the waist down. You'll appreciate the proper fit and compression of this cut, which keeps everything right where it's supposed to be and supports your thighs, waist, and lower torso. The Fiandre No-Rain Bibtights also incorporate the Bodyfit Pro chamois, a seamless affair that Sportful developed with their stable of pro cyclists that they bill as their most comfortable long distance insert. Since we've not yet ridden to discomfort in any of their other chamois, we assume that "long distance" means something along the lines of a suspension-free 200 mile trek. Through the Rockies. On singletrack.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
