Finisseur Pro Race Thermal Bib Tights
The new winter bib tights from Finisseur’s Pro Race line are, without a doubt, one of the best garments we have tried in recent times within their category. They offer a soft touch that is hard to find in other brands and a warmth that makes them super comfortable.
Racing cut, also for winter
For those who do not know, the Finisseur Pro Race line is the sportiest or racing line within the brand’s catalogue. In this sense, the Pro Race Thermal are the bib tights for cyclists looking for maximum performance, even during the coldest months. This garment is a great option to be considered, as it is made with fabrics and technologies that provide high performance in both senses. They are technical, and at the same time, thermal bib tights seeing as they are recommended for a temperature range between 3º and 15ºC.
High-end fabric and garment
During testing of these bib tights, one of the aspects that we liked the most was the more than pleasant feel of the garment on the skin. This is due to the use of Carvico fabric from Italy, but also thanks to the use of microfibre. This combination provides a plush finish on the inside which, together with a good pattern and a certain amount of elasticity, makes these Finisseur bib tights, without being too compressive, fit perfectly to our body shapes.
The chamois pad is another key point. Finisseur uses one of its best options to optimise the support on the saddle by means of this garment. The Ronde HP chamois pad is made of ECO X-Fifty fabric, has double density and elastic capacity, as well as anti-bacterial treatment.
When running, the chamois remains in place at all times and does not generate any folds or points of friction. However, it has a multidirectional curvature that avoids excess pressure in the central area of our support.
Elastic, thermal, reflective
Other important features of these bib tights are the great fit it offers in the torso area, something that not all garments of this type achieve. The straps, for example, which are flat, have sufficient weight and consistency to remain fixed in place and are always stable on your body, avoiding movements, twisting or uncomfortable slipping.
The thick, thermal tissue in the abdomen area is also something to appreciate. It clearly differentiates them from summer bib tights and also from others of the winter collection that have the zone covered with a mesh that lets the air or the cold get in. In the back area, however, and with good reason, the Pro Race have a fine mesh that favours the transpiration of our body while we pedal. A detail that will be appreciated by those who go out and pedal more intensely.
Finisseur Pro Race Thermal are bib tights that have such good performance properties, with an anatomical pattern and elastic capacity, as well as being thermal, with a fabric that offers a warm touch and protection against the cold. Their ability to protect us from the cold is also compatible with perspiration. They’re not at all the type of bib tights that make you sweat and don’t get rid of body heat. A mesh area on the back helps us so that we don’t feel too much of a hot flush when we pedal hard.
They have an excellent chamois, more than noticeable support of the straps and a detail that we like very much are the reflective elements that these bib tights use and that make us highly visible on the road.
Feeling of warmth inside
The Finisseur logos on the thigh are somewhat sensitive to rubbing.
