Santini BeHot bib tights review

With a very traditional look whilst incorporating some cutting edge material technology that actually creates heat, the Santini BeHot bib tights should make a good choice for cold weather riding

Cycling Weekly Verdict

The BeHot tights make an excellent choice for those sub-zero rides when your lower half actually benefits from the warmth generated by the material. This does lead to them being a little too warm for temperatures above 5 degrees. The traditional styling will not be to everyone’s taste

The stand-out feature of these tights is the BeHot fabric that is said to generate heat when stretched.

In use the material felt very warm but quite stiff and restrictive when pedalling. The other feature of this material is that it combines a water-resistant coating to allow for a wider range of weather conditions.
