The name says it all, yet the lightness of these tights does not detract from their warmth.
This is afforded by Cannondale’s XJersey Plus fabric, a fleece inner-faced and a four-way stretch fabric which gives a great sensation of free movement while also wicking well when the going gets tough. The elasticated waist is 3cm tall and tightens with a drawcord. We liked the separate front panel on the knee, allowing free articulation.
Although the knee back did bunch up it was not enough to cause discomfort. At first glance the Team chamois looked like a second, appearing wrinkled. However, this treatment eliminates hard edges and allows the chamois to be more flexible. The 25cm-long ankle zippers have a reflective trim, and these allied to Cannondale’s logo on the left buttock and the brand name with floral designs on the front right section ensure you’ll be seen from all angles. The tights are nicely finished with a little interior mesh pocket, just big enough to fit your house-keys.
