Hincapie Alpe bib tights review£149.99

Comfortable and warm

BikeRadar score4/5

Designed around George Hincapie’s 16 years of experience in the pro peloton, the Alpe bib tight shows that even hardened pros value warmth and comfort when training. The four-way stretch softshell fabric front panels of these ultra-warm leggings repel rain well, but after a multi-hour downpour moisture does find a way through.

The Super Roubaix straps and high cut of lower back panels add to the snug feeling and the silicone ankle grippers keep draughts at bay. The Power chamois keeps you sitting comfortably during the long hours of training.

The windproof lower leg panels really help keep warm blood flowing to your feet. All this warmth and comfort does come with a small restriction of leg movement, which was never more than a minor inconvenience, but one we’d like to see George address for next year.
