CW test the Lusso Max Repel bib-tights £54.99
These may have been around for an age, with just the odd nip and tuck updates, but they still perform well.
The surface coating is as water repellent as many more expensive tights that offer the same type of performance but at a far lower cost.
The Roubaix-style base fabric doesn't offer the high compressive feel, or quality of overall fit that most more expensive tights will and to be honest, the footloop is a little thick but, these warm, weather resistant tights are only £54.99.
The zip is long enough to allow nature breaks and they keep you warm on the bike.
For those on a tight budget or in need of leg wear to trash in a winter of salty, grimy commuting, these are more than up to the task.
