"I always like the high-vis gear because it makes so much sense from safety point of view - this jersey looks good and you can be seen. It works very effectively, is comfortable in hot conditions and seems to have some wind proofing qualities as well. I'm after another one!"

"These are the first cycling specific sock I have bought and from the reviews I had read, I did think they might be warmer than they actually are. That is not to say they are not good. In cool temperatures and probably normal summer conditions in the UK, I think they will be absolutely fine. They represent very good value and I am pleased with them."

"I'd been really unsure about which tight to go for and then a friend recommended these. Pleased with the fit and used them for the first time on a very windy January day. They were very good. They kept me warm and I found them so much more comfortable and efficient compared to cycling shorts under Ron Hills. Not sure how robust they will be as I have no experience with dub gear and I would like more reflective features but they do seem very good value for money and obviously perform well."

"Very pleased with these tyres. On a wet Newlands Pass no trouble with grip and so far (touch wood) no punctures on debris-strewn roads."

"Up till now I had been using a buff as a helmet cap, but this soft-shell cap is so much better. Obviously it is a better fit but the best thing is the windstopper strip - it cuts out that chilling wind onto your temples. Well impressed."
Pros: Comfortable, High Quality, Lightweight, Good Fit

"Bought as a set with the Swan rear mudguard. This is quite easy to fit and does not interfere with cables. However it does not protect lower legs as much as had hoped for. In hindsight I would only buy the Swan guard. The rubber ties do look a bit lightweight and I wonder how long they will last."

 Castelli Velocissimo Bib Tights
Castelli Velocissimo Bib Tights
Warm and lightweight cycling tights with a Thermoflex fabric construction for insulation and comfort on while you build your base miles over the winter. Featuring a Kiss3 seatpad and Giro3 ankle grippers.
 

Are they effective in temperatures around 0?

How effective are they in the cold, windy weather that is typical of northern England in Jan/Feb? Really struggling to make my mind up on winter tights!

These are called thermo tights but are they as effective against the cold as Windstopper tights?
