The Helium All Seasons tights are made from Vuelta fabric, a fleece-lined Lycra like Roubaix but lighter in weight and with a higher elastic quality. The back tapers up to the shoulder blade area where it divides into broad braces. The seams are all flatlocked inside, the outer seams using Scotchlite ribs and reflective threads for great visibility. The ankles secure with a lockable zip. The simple pad is anatomically shaped with a great elastic stretch, but they’re available unpadded too, for £95.
