Not really tights.

These are more like loose fitting leggings and not tights. You must have rather large legs to fill them. Unfortunately I returned them before testing there performance due to the loose fit.

Very happy

I recently bought these as I am training for the London Revolution. This means I need to be riding long distances now, in the cold. I was wearing normal waterproof trousers but they kept catching on the bike so I bought these. I have now worn them for about 150 miles worth of riding in all weathers from 0°C to driving wind and rain. In the cold they keep you nice and warm and even in the driving rain I didn't feel cold or even particularly drenched. As far as fit goes, I like the feel of them and they are comfortable. I would recommend them.

First Cycling Tights

These were the first tights I have bought for cycling. I don'the consider them as tights because I have Canterbury leggings that I use to and these on especially are thicker than them. These are really warm, I normally take a Large or XL , these are slightly too big around calf muscles and very slightly too long but no big problem. Came back to order another pair today because I use them under tracksuit buttons for walking too. Think they are too expensive at £33 though, will wait until / if they are on sale at less than £20.overall really good product for winter.

Pretty Happy

These are the fist cycling tights I've ever used so don't really have any point of reference. But have kept me warm on a 20 mile cycle in the depths of Scottish winter so no complaints. Comfy and all

Great for the casual rider

Nice material and a reasonably good fit. Thighs a little on the snug side for the rider with well developed muscles. Cut a little meagre at the rear if you ride with dropped bars quite low. Will be great for casual rides in a more upright position.

Good Fit

Got the medium, i am 5-6 29 inch leg they fit fine , thought they may be a bit long but no problems as the stretch material is very flexible and would look ok give or take a few inches longer if required. waist is elasticated with draw string so again as they say one size fits many.

Perfect

These when I replace and repair my last pair of Altura cruisers which had begun to fall apart after 5 years of daily commuting. There are still as good but the cut is even better particularly on the calf where it is a tighter fit than my older pair resulting in zero flapping around which used to cause problems when it would get caught in the chain wheel occasionally. Very happy with them.

Altura Cruiser Cycling Tights

Tried them out on a cold day and they kept me very warm. Best to buy larger than your usual size.

Altura Cruiser Cycling Tight 2014

These were sent as an alternative when the original tights I ordered were out of stock store staff were very helpful. Absolutely great. They are comfortable and a good fit. I bought the next size up as advised on the site. I wore them on a fairly cold day and they worked a treat. They arent overly tight or restrictive. Would definitely buy again.

Tights Guide

What are cycling tights?

Cycling tights are close-fitting legwear for cycling. They are really comfortable for cycling, letting you ride for longer and faster.

Who needs cycling tights?

It’s normally road cyclists who wear tights, but they’re so comfy that any cyclist will benefit from them. If you feel uncomfortable in such revealing, close-fitting clothing, you can always wear baggier shorts over the top.

What are the choices?

You can choose padded tights, or unpadded ones that you can wear shorts underneath. Waist tights are the versatile choice, or some people will find bibtights more comfortable. Choose lightweight tights for summer and thicker ones with insulating Roubaix lining in winter.

What should I buy with them?

If your tights are unpadded, you’ll want undershorts to wear with them. If you’re wearing bibtights, a base layer will add a lot of comfort when worn under the bib section.

Anything else?

Tights aren’t just for full-on road racing – they’re really comfortable, especially in winter. Leisure cyclists and commuters will also benefit massively from them.
