LONG DURABLE TIGHTS
When we spoke to female mountain bikers, there was one thing they all wanted:
long, warm, durable tights for mountain biking in the cold!
That's why we chose a material that's resistant to snags and scratches from branches over the thighs and ankles, but which also provides very good thermal insulation.
You'll now be protected from the cold, mud, rain, and branches when you go mountain biking in winter!
ENJOY YOUR RIDE TO THE FULLEST
To adapt to mountain biking, we chose a women's ergonomic pad that combines 3 properties:
1- It is ergonomic and designed to fit women's hips.
2- It guarantees very good perspiration wicking.
3- It isn't too bulky:
both for aesthetic reasons, and also to prevent snagging on the front of the saddle, particularly during descents.
RIDE IN TOTAL COMFORT
The fabric is very soft and comfortable to wear to keep you warm:
- The fabric is stretchy and moves with you. The ankles are elasticated to make the tights easy to put on.
- The inside of these long tights has been brushed. This process is a way to retain heat as the fabric traps air, which is naturally insulating.
- The waistband's shape provides comfort: it is flat and shaping. It is also high to cover your lower back.
WHAT IS A WATER-REPELLENT FABRIC?
Water-repellent fabric allows water to slide over its surface and delays absorption.
This means that the fabric doesn't become waterlogged, but stays light.
Water repellency is obtained by applying a treatment to the fabric's outer surface.
HOW DO YOU PRESERVE WATER REPELLENCY?The water-repellent treatment applied to the fabric's outer surface needs to be reactivated throughout the product's life. Our advice: regularly apply a fabric waterproofing liquid (or spray)

A rating to compare products' environmental impact.
A product's environmental impact is calculated for its entire life cycle using various indicators.
An overall rating (ABCDE) is given, allowing you to easily identify products with the best environmental performance by comparing similar products to each other (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks etc.).
Decathlon openly displays the environmental ratings of its products.
