Endura Stealth Bib Tights

The fabric used in these tights is fully waterproof and with ultrasonically welded seams and stretch taping, guarantees dry legs in even the worst wet weather. They’re warm too, with a fleece liner – and despite being on the thick side they manage to retain just enough breathability so longer jaunts don’t become an uncomfortable affair.

The bib straps are made from Thermolite material so next to the skin they don’t get all sweaty, and it’s for the same reason we find a mesh panel on the back. A four inch zip on the front makes getting in and out of them a little easier, as do the ankle length zippers on the back of the legs, with waterproof coverings. Commuting visibility is provided by reflective prints at the bottom of the legs and in the Endura logos further up.

The shape of the legs is pretty simple and the fit suffers for this reason. When compared to the Gore Bike Wear Contest Thermo tights, which have multi-panel legs, the fit just isn’t as leg hugging as we’d prefer. They tend to feel a bit restrictive around the knee when pedalling.

Verdict

For wet weather riding the Stealth tights are unbeatable. They’re warm too by way of a nice soft fleecy lining, and are ideal for longer wet winter rides. When push comes to shove though, we would probably take Gore’s offering – they’re cheaper and fit much better. But if you really must have the best wet weather protection, these are worth a look.
