Lusso Repel Cycling Bib Tights without Pad
Lusso Repel Cycling Bib Tights without Pad
MarkI'm 176 cm tall, waist: 95 cm, weight: 78 kg inseam: 80 cm. The XL size is comfortable but a little too large. I think I would try for L next time. Other than that they are reasonably warm down to about 3 - 4 degrees in Western NSW, when it gets colder I put on an extra pair of thin tights.
BarryAlways buy Lusso tights and shorts, great quality and fit.
MartinAfter a few years of putting off the inevitable I have finally bought a pair. I had been making do with bib tights but when it gets close to zero degrees they just won't do. Bought these and instantly adore them. They turn a 3 degree ride into a 9 degree ride. Plus they repel water and mud and simply wipe down after a ride. They have no chamois so simply put them over a pair of padded shorts. For reference: I'm 5'6", weigh approx. 11 stone and the medium is best suited for me. The legs are a tad long so I just fold them up. The rest of the fit is spot on. If you haven't done so already; buy a pair. You won't be disappointed.
RichardGreat value for money. Really comfortable and kept me warm in cold conditions. By having no pad it was great to put over bib shorts and get that extra layer in key areas!
Mr HartleySize: I am 182 cm tall (33cm inside leg) and 81kg. The large size is a perfect fit. The material is slightly heavier than comparable Italian brands but delivers in its weather proofing in all but the most biblical of torrential downpours. A worthy wardrobe item for applying #rule5 and #rule9. Merlin service excellent as ever.
Mr WhitePurchased two pairs, the first XL were too tight. I based my order sizing on my Lusso bib shorts which are XL. So if you're 6' 3" with 31" inside leg and taller in the torso 2XL. Having to pay my own postage to return them was a put off so sold the pair that didn't fit to a mate in my cycle club. I've worn the 2XL. Comfortable warm but lack a gel pad. The pad is not very thick so I wear them with gel pad underwear. Over all good value for money and the water repellent material does work.
Arctic Cyclist from FinlandSo far I've only ridden these once, in a freezing temperature, and I can only say these are warm and fit snugly (size M, inseam 81 cm). Nice!
Mr canhamVery warm in this cold weather we`re having...not had any rain on them yet. I got the XL, am 6ft 2in, 33.5in inside leg, they`re a bit long in leg.
BaileyThis is the second Lusso product I have purchased. Being only 5'8" tall I find the legs extremely long, but I have successfully overcome this by simply making a fold at the ankle and tucking them into my overshoes. The quality is very good and I would have no hesitation in purchasing more Lusso products.
Mr MacroHave been wearing these for a couple of months now, and have got to say are very good. Excellent product.
Mr WhitthamI have used these for over 10 years. They are my go to bib tights, both for summer and winter. They wear really well, are great when it is cold and wet. I user them for both my daily commute, and regular cycling. The only criticism I can comment on, is that they struggle to keep me warm when it is below minus 3 deg centigrade. They are great to about minus 1 deg C.
Mr SairiGreat quality, very warm indeed however I prefer the regular Lusso tights as I can still fit an extra padded short in therm.
McBeagleWarm and Comfortable. Breathes well. Great price. As always, fast delivery with Merlin.
Mr MorrisonGreat fit (large - 6ft tall) comfy and warm.
KeithI love Lusso cycling gear. Great value, fit, and workmanship. I wish they were readily available here in the USA. These are my third pair of Lusso tights. I ride all year round and in the northeast USA, temps dip well below 32F. These tights offer great warmth and protection from the elements.
Lee GriffinI've worn these a couple of times now for my commutes and have found them to be warm and comfortable. At 5'6" I have problems finding bib tights or leg warmers that are not too long, these are great - finally a manufacturer that doesn't think the world is full of people with legs up to their armpits. Size small is a snug but good fit for me, no nora batty impressions. Can't comment yet on the 'Repel' aspect of these or their longevity - however quality seems good and I'm happy so far. Recommended. NB: You'll need bib shorts underneath, these have no pad.
Mr BThese are my first bib tights, so I didn't want to pay too much, yet I still wanted them to be warm, water resistant and comfortable - The Lusso Max Repel Bib Tights give you all of these things and I'm really impressed so far. I was slightly nervous about buying tights without a pad, but it just works fine as I just wear my favourite shorts underneath and that solves any issues with poor pads, so I'd buy unpadded again. As ever, the service from Merlin was fast and efficient, plus these bibs were on offer, making them even more of a bargain.
Mr TangGood fit and nice soft lining makes for a comfortable pair of bib tights for colder weather.
CharleneThis has been by far the best cycle bib I've ever purchased. Believe these are for men even though I'm a woman rider the small fit's me perfect and kept me warm through autumn I await the winter months to really test these bad boys although I will be wearing my mourino wool thermals underneath as extra warmth yet to test if they keep the rain off. I probably be buying a second pair soon.
Mr SavilleGreat product at a fabulous price, especially as Lusso have improved their sizing (they were too long in the leg - not now). These are my third pair of these tights my first pair lasted over 15 years (they did look rough at the end). Really nice quality, warm lycra and the max repel finish really does work.
Mr AlbanySuperb value all round Having bought Lusso Max Repel as my first ever pair of winter bib tights about 5 years ago they were showing their age and high usage ( I ride all year round come rain or shine about twice a week for 70 miles). Seeing that they were on offer, and I really needed a replacement pair sometime soon, I did not hesitate to buy again. Although the style has changed a little, I am certain they will give me the comfort, winter warmth and longevity I require once again. There are plenty of expensive alternatives, but these have stood the test of time - hence a second purchase.
Mr garnettSecond pair I've bought for winter riding...superb...warm, light, tight....fantastic and what a price too!!!
Pedro DinizLovely warm winter tights. Very snug around the lower legs. Not had a chance to test the claimed waterproofness yet.
Mr KingNice fit, good quality fabric and seem well made. Already used them for a race and they didn't feel too hot or restrictive either. Bargain at the discount price.
Mr HartleyGreat value, and a good quality product for the price. No seat pad, so bib shorts underneath needed for added comfort. On the first winter ride they were nice and warm, and the water repellant finish will should keep the worst of the rain off. V.happy with purchase.
JasonExcellent product at an excellent price. This is my second pair of these, the first pair are still going strong after about 8 years! Well made, very good material,warm and toasty when the weather gets cold. All in all an excellent product and made in the UK!
Mr brierleyI find the Lusso Max Repel bib tights one of the best out there for the money. The fleecy lining is warm the coating (it does wash off in time) does impede moisture soaking into the material. And the fit is good.
RicardoTheNorthernMonkeyExcellent, good value bibtights. Used these for ages as my commuter bib longs - no pad so go well over shorts or 3/4 lengths. These ones have improved general quality over previous ones -for the money they`re highly reccomended.
JezzaExcellent set of winter bib tights, perfect fit and supremely comfortable too. Superb price as well.
MattGreat product at a great price. Super fast delivery as usual. I wear Lusso Bib Shorts and Jerseys so know the quality is always good and sizing is accurate.
Mr WhitthamPurchased for the forthcoming winter. As I ride throughout the year. These are my go to bottoms, as they are great through the autumn, winter, spring, on my daily commute, and other riding. Have used Max Repel Bibtights for a number of year. Great clothing, good fit, good price, and British made. What more can you say.
Mr DransfieldVery pleased with these tights. Fit perfect and very warm. Bought medium after visiting the Lusso stand at the Birmingham Cycle Show. The staff were very helpful. And made in UK which is a double bonus
Mrs FitzgibbonThis product is just right for winter rides. Rode on Boxing Day in the rain and the water repellant nature of the item was perfect. Well done Merlin for swift delivery.
Mr StanleyOnly ridden in these a couplle of times but I am very happy with them, they are not thick like my altura winter ones, but are just as good keeping the cold out, not ridden in the rain with them yet but been through a few puddles and haven`t felt any water so seem to be doing their job. They are very comfy even with me being a big guy, first set of bib tights I have owned and I like them a lot and would defo recomend them. Also faultless service from Merlin as usual
Mr OsborneExcellant product in terms of it keeps you dry and warm in some extreme conditions. Have not used them long enough to comment on how long they last but I've other Lusso jerseys which I've had for a few years and have proved to be very very good indeed.
Mr BellVery good product and good price. I have had these tights before and can thoroughly recommend them, warm and they do seem to shed some water...
Mr BurnsLooks good, very well made,great performance and excellent value .Unbeatable
Mr HayesWhat a great product, at an amazing price. Fantastic service from Merlin Cycles, free next day delivery cantbetoocarefull beaten.
Mr KlassonSeems to be very good value. Well made. Have not tested yet, too hot weaher for that!! :)
