Cycling Weekly Verdict

The Pinnacle Thermal Cycling Tights are suited to casual rides in cold, dry weather. If you're seeking some padless tights to keep you warm when running errands on an upright bike, they'll do the job. However, the cut and styling make them unsuitable as a more sporty, road cycling option. Sizing down might reduce some of the bagginess at the waist and ankles, but the seam placement and absence of compression will still disappoint most Lycra loving riders.

Pinnacle, the in-house brand at Evans Cycles, offers these Thermal Cycling Ladies Tights with an extremely reasonable price tag.

We did find them to be very warm in cold conditions, and the style will perhaps be ideal if Lycra is not your go-to. However, performance-seeking roadies might be looking for a closer fit in the best bib tights for winter cycling.
