Ducks love it when it's wet. Ducks don't like to ride bikes. Logically, it follows that being wet and riding bikes don't go together. Unfortunately, it's almost impossible to stay dry when the road is wet, but Sportful's Fiandre NoRain Bib Tights offer up an elegant solution. NoRain Thermal fabric uses nanotechnology essential a treatment that prevents water from penetrating the pores of a fabric to repel water, so you'll stay dry on rainy rides. The tights are also double-layered at the knees and thighs for extra protection, and an extra NoRain Light panel at the lower back prevents wheel spray from soaking you.
Even if it's raining heavily, the lightweight brushed fleece backing is designed to keep you warm if you get soggy, so you don't freeze just because the skies opened up. Minimal seams help reduce water penetration, and the mesh bibs increase breathability and moisture management, so you don't find yourself sweating excessively as the weather improves.
Indeed, Sportful fully intended the NoRain to be worn as all-weather tights. The BodyFit Pro design, the cut favored in the peloton by Tinkoff-Saxo, fits close to your skin to enhance moisture management and support muscles, so you can ride comfortably when the roads are dry, and the NoRain Thermal fabric helps regulate temperature, keeping you comfortable on mild days as well as chilly ones.
A good chamois is important no matter the weather, so Sportful included its TC Pro insert, which conforms to your anatomy for serious comfort in the saddle on rides short, medium, and long. Reflective piping at the ankle helps you be seen, and the locking ankle zippers let you slide the Fiandre easily on and off, even if they're wet.
