Rhythm Elite Bib Tights are designed for comfort in the saddle, giving you full coverage so you can keep riding all year round, no matter the conditions. They do exactly what bib tights should do, protecting from the elements with our favourite dual-density chamois and a PFC-free water-repellent coating.
Rhythm Elite Bib Tights are designed to keep you warm, all the while giving you plenty of freedom to move. The soft brushed inner feels amazing next your skin, whilst the wind resistant outer with a DWR finish protects from wind and light showers. The mesh upper body provides ventilation when you're warm, and traps pockets of air when layered under a windshell to provide insulation in colder conditions.
All Rhythm Bibs feature our custom 8 hour chamois team-tested and unanimously chosen by our women riders. Made with premium dual-density foam for greater support, stability and comfort over longer rides and rigorous terrain. The seamless construction and plush feel is all about luxurious against-the-skin comfort. And they are treated with Silvadur 930 anti-microbial to stay fresh day after day.
Rhythm Elite Bib Tights have an anatomical cut for comfort, with ankle zips that make getting them on and off easier. Flatlock seams minimise chafing and sit nicely against your skin; reflective logos help you to stay safe and seen.
Cyclist magazine says "Rhythm Elite bib tights are a great pair of good quality longs ideal for long training rides. The soft brushed inner makes for a warm and comfortable pair of bib tights which feel great against the skin. I really liked how these felt on my legs. The bib tights have a DWR finish which protects from wind and light showers.
I like to wear these bib tights with the Alpkit Rhythm Thicky jersey. It makes for quite the comfortable training ride combo."

The Rhythm chamois has a Silvadur 930 anti-microbial finish on it to keep it fresh, but this doesn’t mean you never need to wash it! To help your chamois lead a long and hygienic life, wash as soon after your ride as possible! Warm wash by hand or on a gentle cycle at 30°C. Use a non-biological detergent or pure soap. Do not use fabric conditioners or softeners. Do not bleach. Do not iron. Rinse thoroughly in clean water and allow to dry on the line out of direct sunlight. Tumble dry on low heat if you're in a hurry.
