Integra Winter Bib Tight delivers thermal protection for cold winter riding. Melding thermal and waterproof properties, you're shielded against winter's harsh elements. The added protection in the thigh and ankle areas guarantee you stay warm and dry during your toughest rides. The tights are based on the beloved Integra Bib Shorts. All excess material is removed creating a streamlined fit to enhance your performance. Special stitching of the tights eliminates any areas prone to friction for a chafe-free ride.
Nalini leaves a cutout for the INTEGRApad. The pad is then integrated into the tights to form one central panel so the INTEGRA pad comes in contact with the saddle and your body without interference. The recessed design of the pad maximizes comfort and eliminates chafing. You'll definitely notice the difference on longer rides.

I was expecting a heavy, winter long tight for very cold weather. Wrong. They're super light and technical. These are basically for high 40's/mid 50's hard aerobic riding. Long tights for racing. They would excel for CX, cold track workouts, or cold spring races with rain and spray. (The light fabric would not likely gain water weight but I haven't validated this myself.) The lower leg has a rubberized section which I assume was designed with wet riding. So far, I have used them as a first layer with no-pad tights on top. No complaints there. Good compression and the sizing is identical to Castelli in my opinion. I'm 5',11" 190 with a 32" waist. A large fit me just right - very snug through the hips. The pad is also light but with a large coverage area; there is wind-proof material to protect the jewels and that is a very well thought out design feature. Flaw: the shoulder straps are too long - super stretchy and mine need to be about 2" shorter. I may have an alterations place take care of that for me. At 270 bucks, they're not a bargain but worth having for the right day.Unknown
