An alternative to spandex, the wool Ibex El Fito 3/4 bike tights are ready to tackle a late-fall training ride or a springtime century. Think of them as knee warmers without the drooping or bulkiness.

  • Bikewear-exclusive fabric is made from New Zealand merino wool, a small amount of nylon for extra strength, and Lycra® spandex for a snug fit that moves with you
  • Wool provides excellent temperature regulation, especially for stop-and-go sports such as cycling; fabric blend is midweight, soft, durable, breathable and machine washable
  • Reinforced with flexible polyester/spandex fabric in the seat and inner thighs for durability and support; the fleecy brushed backing is extra soft next to skin
  • Bumps and vibrations are no problem for the multi-density foam chamois pad; ergonomic pad absorbs sweat and dries quickly for comfort in the saddle
  • Soft-shell front knee panels buffer against cold and wet weather and enhance warmth
  • Gripper elastic legs hems and smooth elastic waistband secure the fit; flat-stitched seams reduce chafing
  • Ibex El Fito 3/4 tights have a reflective logo to boost your nighttime visibility

Made in USA.

Ibex El Fito 3/4 Bike Tights - Men'sis rated4.5out of5by4.
Rated3out of5byfromArrived with a hole in the seamGot these for cool LA mornings when the 20% coupon was available. I love the concept bike clothing made of wool with its warmth and breathability and the tights look good. But... they arrived with one of the seams coming apart. So I can't say definitively that the seams are weak on these tights - it could just be a rare defect - but for such an expensive garment from such a high-end brand, I expected better.

Rated5out of5byfromSometimes your just going to get wet.I wear these on rainy winter training rides when I know staying dry is not gong to happen. They keep my legs warm on 4-6 hour rides down to 40 degrees regardless of how wet I get. The wool is soft with no itching at all. Because wool is anti microbial I can get away with washing after three rides. The quality is fantastic, worth every penny.

Rated5out of5byfromLove these tightsI use these tights as my Minnesota cool/cold weather commuting tights and love them. Flexible in the right places, warm but light in the others. I also like the 3/4 length for the flexibility they offer. I have a 6 mile (one-way) commute, takes about 30 minutes in cold winter. I would say I was fine in these down to about 5 or 10 degrees, though would recommend a windbreak boxer (and obvs high socks) in those conditions. They seem very well made and the natural fiber doesn't hold odors which is also a plus. I can't even really think of a downside. Huh.

Rated5out of5byfromBest Cold Weather Cycling Pants EverThese are great for cold weather rides. I commute 20 miles almost daily and I couldn't image riding without these during the fall and winter months. I really like the 3/4 length because they don't bunch. Also, the 3/4 length is flexible because I can wear a bootie+long sock and get full coverage on cold days or just wear a short sock on more mild days. These are made out of wool which is warm, breathable, and quick drying. They are comfortable and super durable. I have been using the same pair for over 3 years and they are still holding up great. Bottom line these are the best cold weather cycling pants I've ever owned.
