No chamois bib tights


Finding it increasingly difficult to buy a pair of bibtights without a chamois. A bit old school as I prefer to wear a good pair of bib shorts under my bib tights. Bought a pair of Assos Mille in the Sale but 1st ride started to pile or bobble so went back. Any recommendations out there I’d appreciate cheers.

    I've had a number of pairs from they used to do all their bib tights with or without a pad.

    I was going to say Assos but your experience is a bit different to mine as I think mine about 6 years old and are just beginning to show some wear on the crotch.

    I’ve had a pair of Castelli and a pair of Rapha for 10 years at least and both are still going strong. But then again my bad weather cycling has been curtailed since getting a smart trainer in 2020. They are only used on cold bright weekends now.
    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
    I am not sure. You have no chance.

    Have a look at these Pearl Izumi thermal bibtiights with no pad. I used to wear Gore windstopper ones without a pad and they don’t do them any more unfortunately! Use the Gore windstopper with a pad now.
    Don’t know these but at £38.38 am quite tempted!

    I have always preferred no pad bib tights. For one they seem to be more comfortable worn over your bib shorts.
    Also they are much less likely to lead to embarrassing moments. For instance you arrive home p!ss wet through and take yourself and the bike in to integral garage. As the washing machine is there in front of you, you strip off your wet tights and put them in to machine. You head in to the house to find the wife’s got half the village round for afternoon tea. >:)

    P-x ones? I’ve a pair and so far with regular use over around 12 months they’re holding up fine.
  • Lusso - great padless tights. I've had a couple of pairs of Roubaix for years and they're still going strong.
  • I'm on my third pair of Lusso padless bib tights. I like Lusso kit, it is well made, and I like padless tights beccause if I feel it's cold enough for them then I am going to appreciate the extra layer over my nether regions and lower torso.

    Another vote for Lusso..
