Make your own heat.

When the temperatures plummet and the chilly fall breeze is replaced by icy winter blasts, most cyclists head inside. If you're not one of them, grab a pair of Santini's BeHot Bib Tights to do exactly as their name suggests. Offering a twist on the traditional thermal tight design, the BeHot Tights are made with the proprietary fabric of the same name, which Santini claims produces up to ten degrees of additional heat as you sweat. To ensure you stay dry in the most inhospitable riding conditions, Santini also adds its AcquaZero treatment to the fabric for a barrier against rain, sleet, and snow and extends the cut of the bibs for added protection.

For comfort across long, seated base miles, Santini includes its GIT chamois in the BeHots, which uses a combination of shock-absorbing silicone and foam cushioning to provide support where you need it and relief where you don't. The insert's anti-microbial face helps ward off chafing and irritation, and mesh inserts in the bib straps promote breathability and ventilation without getting in the way when layering base layers and jackets on top.
