For daily riding, the Vuelta Tights are designed to handle mostly dry conditions and moderate winds. They use the same breathable fabric as the Roubaix, but don't have a front wind-proof panel. For all-around comfortable riding, they transport moisture better than most and regulate temperature evenly.
- Fabric is 45% nylon, 42% polyester, and 13% spandex. Smooth flat face resists snagging. Brushed back is soft next to skin.
- Light fabric on lower back and waist is highly breathable.
- Adjustable drawcord waistband.
- Seven-panel upper for a streamlined fit and great mobility.
- Seamless construction on the front panels.
- Reflective treatments on ankle zips, calves, and hip for night-time visibility.
- Ankle zips have zipper garages and reflective piping.
- Gripper elastic around ankle cuffs prevents ride-up.
