Cycling Weekly Verdict

The GORE C3 Women's Windstopper bib tights + are in a class of their own when it comes to keeping you warm in sub zero riding conditions. The fit does need to be improved to make these perfect, but I'd still take these over a better fitting less insulated pair any snow day of the week.

Until this year, I could probably have counted my sub zero snow rides on one hand. They've been exciting and knowing that the snow wouldn't hang around for long, I swopped bikes, stuck on some spike tyres and headed off road for an exciting adventure.
