Everybody needs some everyday training garments – stuff that you can pull on for training rides, fling in the wash repeatedly and doesn't cost the earth. The Caratti Sport Bib Tights fit the bill, though compared to some tights in a similar price bracket they lack a little in quality of finish.
Inexpensive bib shorts that punch above their weight in quality and aesthetics, but there is a niggle or two.
Seriously impressive performance for the price — shorts that'll serve you well on all but the longest rides.
Simple and effective, a great addition to any cyclist's wardrobe

By contrast , the thumb is constructed of a towelling-type material forming a snot wipe-while the back of the glove will hold off the rain, it'll seep through here. cut on the fingers is boxy, but they're still a good choice for the price.
