CW test the latest from Etxeondo Denbora bib-tights £229.99
With claims of carbon fibre and Ketaren fabric improving performance by absorbing static electric, the Denboras had a lot to live up to.
The truth is they are simply a lovely pair of bib-tights. Slightly thicker than average for Roubaix tight, they offer a decent amount of wind resistance given the lack of any membrane; this could be in part to the excellent compressive nature of the fabric improving fit and reducing any internal air pockets.
The lack of ankle zips also mean they stay very snug at the lower extremity. It does make getting them on slightly trickier though, as they are a little tight.
The performance matches the top-end pricing and despite keeping them simple, Exteondo has managed to produce a quality bit of legwear.
