Named for the Paris/Roubaix cycle race, also known as the Hell of the North. Canadian cyclists also know a few things about cold-weather riding, and these tights are excellent for road rides on cold, dry days throughout the fall and winter. The windproof front panels are water-resistant to shrug off showers. The back panels provide warmth, stretch, venting and moisture transport. A chamois-free design lets you team these tights up with your favourite cycling shorts for maximum comfort and versatility.
- Front panels are 54% nylon, 35% polyester, 6% spandex, 5% polyurethane with a DWR treatment.
- Thermoroubaix rear panels are 54% nylon, 26% polyester, 20% spandex.
- Flat braided waist drawcord.
- Strategically placed reflective treatment on thighs and backs of calves for optimal side visibility in traffic. (Note: Due to a fabric/tape compatibility issue that may cause the reflective tape on the back of the calves to peel, we've reduced the price of these tights.)
- Zippered legs to ease on and off, with locking zipper heads.
- Articulated knees for ride position comfort.
- Gripper elastic at ankle cuff.
Wondering what to bring hiking? Even if you’re only planning to be out for a few hours on a day hike, it’s important to pack some essential items. Weather can change quickly outdoors, and something as simple as a rolled ankle might mean you’re out longer than expected.
The essentials for hiking and camping (or any activity in the backcountry) are often called “The 10 Essentials.” The 10 essentials list below is adapted from Mountaineering: Freedom of the Hills, which groups the essentials into systems.
Before you start packing
Be a smart hiker by being prepared. Knowledge and skills won’t fit in your backpack, but they’re critical to have – if you’re a beginner, check out local hiking groups and learn tips at MEC backcountry workshops. Know your route and plans before you leave, always leave a trip plan with a trusted friend, and make sure your footwear is trail-worthy and comfortable.
