The Montezumas are waist tights rather than bibs, but a broad, high-at-the-back waistband makes the most of the format.
They’re made of a Roubaix-style fabric, but in a lighter variant that Ground Effect call Hot Shot Lycra.That means they’re not as warm as some but you’re less likely to overheat if the sun makes an appearance.
The stretch of the thinner fabric boosts comfort, helped by sophisticated construction comprising eight panels joined by contoured seams. The Montezumas do without leg grippers, but they’re sufﬁciently well shaped to stay put without help.
Inside is a moulded, seamless multi-density pad that’s a pleasure to sit on in the saddle. Reﬂective logos at the back of each leg are a useful ﬁnishing detail.
