cycle tights

A must have item for rides during the cold weather!

icon-circle-checkmark verified purchase

First impressions was that the padding was a bit stiff and not that comfortable, but this soon loosened up with a bit of wear. Worn them for a couple of 60k+ rides and they’re comfortable for that distance. Warmth-wise, they seem pretty decent - bit too warm on one ride but that’s more down to an unseasonably mild day and me failing to check the weather forecast, rather than the tights. All in all, very happy.

Get Larger size!

Had to exchange Large for XL so it’s a little big on the waist now but otherwise very comfortable. Had a 90 minute ride at the weekend and very pleased with them. Only suggestions I’d make for improvement would be for a drawstring (due to getting larger size) and would like to have had a key pocket somewhere (maybe a zipped one in rear as some others have).

Ridiculously tight

Can’t understand why these are so tight. You have to fight to get them on and off and they feel like they’re restricting your blood supply.

Good, but buy the next size up

They do come up rather small. I bought the medium size based on the size guide, but it is very tight and should be longer. I didn't return it as I'd worn it and other sizes were not in stock. I have a 30/30 inch waist/inseam. I later bought a large size which fits okay. The pad feels better after it's been washed a few times and is fine for 50 mile rides. The material is stretchy and warm and ankle zips certainly help with getting it on and off.

Good but..

These tights are well made and definitely kept me protected during the cold weather. My only gripe is that the padding (on me) does not go as far up the back as on cycling shorts. This felt a little strange although it didn't impact cycling or comfort

RC 500 tights review

These are the first cycling tights I have bought as cycling is my main exercise since Covid. They seam very effective to me rather like wearing a wet suit. I would say small means small in this clothing range, I am a 29" / 30" waist and they are quite tight though not uncomfortable. I would be tempted to try medium next time. I am not convinced the pad is necessary if you have a good jell saddle and a few miles in. I did not find this a major change in comfort. I would buy them again if they are worn out next winter, maybe I however I would try something with a jell pad next time and see what if any improvement comfort that brings.

Nice and warm, but let down by a weird waist cut

Tights are nice, warm and mostly comfortable. The issue I have with them is the weird cut of the waist — they go quite high at the back, which in theory means they would keep your lower back warm, but in practice it means the elastic is not really round and they don't really hold very well to your waist, so they constantly creep down. It almost feels like they're intended to try to force you to switch to bib tights.

Feeble zip

My wife bought me these online just before Christmas. First time one zip burst open, tried for a second time, just can’t close zip, pretty useless Enquired at Stockport today and told find your delivery note or email and send them back. Sorry didn’t keep them Would not recommend. £30 for nothing

Thank you for your feedback regarding this zip. We identified this fault following customer feedback and the items were removed from sale. the replacement garments have been made with a completely new zip and the fault is now rectified. Rest assured that all store and online stock is now fit for sale and I see no reason why you can't have this item replaced.

Poor quality zips

Good quality tight ruined by a poor quality zip. Starts off stiff, then broke on the third use. Returned for a refund.

Thank you for your feedback. I have informed our quality control team of your comments.
Please accept my apology for the inconvenience caused.

Broken zip

Broken zip on first use unfortunately - otherwise fit well and seems like a good pair of cycling tights. Check the zips before buying.

Thank you for your comments. I will forward them on immediately to the quality control team in charge of these tights.

Poor quality Zip

The zip on this is a nightmare. It started to become undone at the top and was a nuisance to keep joining it back together. Now the zip just splits even when it’s done.

I'm sorry to read that a zip at one of the the ankles is faulty. Please return the item to us for a refund or and exchange.
