The Alpine Thermal Bib Short is an excellent choice for fall and winter rides, early morning training or cold-weather commuting. Thermal bib shorts are perfect for riders who want thermal coverage throughout the thighs and rise but prefer the versatility of knee or leg warmers. We've also included two lightweight mesh pockets on both legs for easy access to glove liners, warmer packs, snacks or other necessities. For enhanced visibility in low-light, winter conditions, we used durable, stretchy reflective applications in the form of hip logos and strips on the thighs. These reflective hits, while understated, have a far greater candle-power than previous thermal bib tight iterations (350+ lumens).
FABRICS & CONSTRUCTION
The Alpine Thermal Bib has been engineered with a mid-weight, breathable, stretchy, brushed-back Italian fabric to provide full-upper thermal coverage for cool days. Uppers have been constructed to be minimal, stretchy and also breathable, with lightweight straps and a comfortable mesh-back to hold them in place. The minimalistic design of the uppers and straps reduces bulk under winter layers, promoting quick drying from the inside to minimize sweaty (and inevitably cold) spots that can quickly lead to discomfort in frigid conditions. Additionally, the lighter-weight construction allows for more stretch and better comfort across a wider range of rider body types. We have also reduced the number of fabric panels and seams, when compared to previous iterations of the thermal bib tights, for increased comfort and a more clean, elegant appearance.
