Capo SC-12 Roubaix Carbon Bib Tights, $240

Capo is a California company that follows the Italian rules when it comes to cycling style and innovation. The SC-12 is their medium weight winter tight, and we found them to be a reliably warm and comfortable option on those ‘in-between’ days where finding the right balance of insulation and breathability can be challenging.  The tights feature zippered ankle openings and fly, which are thoughtful additions that improve the SC-12’s comfort and wearability. The fit is racer-inspired, so we suggest going up a size, especially if you are still working to shed those extra pounds gained during the winter. The chamois used in the SC-12 was comfortable and provided enough padding for even a long 5-hour day in the saddle. The combination of Super-Roubaix and Thermo Roubaix fabrics are masterfully combined and used in all of the right places and led to a bib tight that was one of our favorite pieces of clothing in the entire test.
