    The Q36.5 Long Salopette Woman L1 bib tights are a first for Q36.5 and have been engineered for woman using the company's usual considered and targeted approach to the specific behaviours and demands of the female body.
     
    Based on the studies the company performed for the Salopette Dottore bib short, Q36.5 conducted further research and calibrated a modern tight for women: an ergogenic women’s long tight that speaks to the functional, activity and anatomic/ergonomic needs of a women’s body during training and riding. Long Salopette Women L1 is a modern vision of a long tight, designed to give proper protection from cold as well as added muscle support and unrivalled comfort.
     
    In the Women’s Collection, Q36.5 found the need to use their avant-garde Smart fabric in a way that would support the different demands of a woman’s body and have not simply changed the cut of a men's tight. The Long Salopette Women L1 is the ‘leg weapon’ for high intensity training in mid-season and early winter and is part of the Wind Control category that uses the company's proprietary UF Hybrid Shell PLUS fabric. This is a super high-density woven proprietary fabric now augmented with an extra warming effect thanks to the Heat Fibre, a smart fibre on the inside face, which is environmentally sound and sustainable as it is produced from the residue from coffee bean processing. The fibre attracts far-infrared rays from the environment and uses them to heat the body. This fibre increases the thermal ceiling of the Tights by a full 1oC. That means that you will feel the same comfort offered by the fabric used in the company's waisted tight, when the temperature outside is a full degree lower.
     
    Tested at over 110rpm, the Long Salopette Women L1 is designed to allow maximum freedom of moment while ensuring warmth despite its surprisingly low weight.
     
    The cut and construction of the Long Salopette Women L1 is more spartan and is the result of the evolution of the ergogenic pattern design pioneered by Luigi and his team of sartorial masters and uses a minimum of seams that are each strategically placed to deliver not only optimum fit but unrivalled comfort. The bib strap design is a very low bulk, flat and super soft fabric construction that doesn't interfere with your ride - firm in its hold but never restrictive or distracting.
     
    Much of the comfort stems from the chamois and the crotch area features a new proprietary cut with real consideration given to the placement of the pad. Q36.5 have also introduced a Dyneema thread* panel where the shorts meet the saddle that offers greater wear resistance while simultaneously improving thermoregulation and moisture management in this critical area. As an added bonus, the Dyneema also stops the rider sliding around on the saddle, keeping you stable and efficient as you ride.
     
    The crotch area features an anti-stress cut for the genital area, allowing more freedom of movement as well as increased comfort in the pelvic zone that offers a degree of comfort missing in many tights and that will be of particular benefit on longer rides. Furthermore, Q36.5 have removed the central stitching that is present in most other shorts and tights on the market and that joins the tights together along the undercarriage. Understandably, the placement of this stitching has never been ideal and can be responsible for irritation and discomfort in lesser garments - particularly on longer rides. Its removal in the new shorts and tights developed by Q36.5 are testament to their focus on the rider and reinventing products rather than simply re-hashing.
     
    The Long Salopette Woman L1 are the only tights you are likely to need for the bulk of winter riding in the UK and will keep you warm and comfortable while affording the wearer a level of freedom of movement that most other tights with this level of weather protection fail to get close to. 

    We recommend purchasing and wearing your Q36.5 garment ‘true to size’ - if you are usually a Medium, purchase a Medium!

    Exceptions to this are rare but recent style and cut changes to the patterned jerseys in the Q36.5 range have yielded some minor size changes. The original patterned R1 jerseys (eg Vaccaboia) that featured a Raglan sleeve cut, have now evolved into the G1 that features a new anatomical pre-shaped sleeve design for superior ergonomics. While the fit overall is improved, these G1 jerseys I find to be slightly shorter and a smidge tighter. If you are between sizes or already borderline on a size (close to it being too small), you may wish to size up one. Similarly, if you are not quite 'racing snake' and the size chart suggests you are a particular size - if you are close to the upper most extreme of that measure - you may wish to size up (it's how it works for me!)

    When trying on a Q36.5 garment for the first time please keep in mind that cut and fit is designed for on the bike comfort and performance and the user may feel a very minor degree of strain (eg. in the shoulder and chest area of the jersey or the bib short braces) when standing upright. When on the bicycle in a riding position this feeling will literally disappear and be replaced by excellent ease of movement, comfort and stability.

    As a huge fan of Q36.5, there isn't much - if anything in the range I haven't either worn or own!

    As with all cycling apparel, in order to do its job effectively : keep you warm or cool, dry, comfortable and aero, it has to fit correctly. All too often we see riders in clothing that is far too big, flapping around or with gaping sleeves.

    We get it, some people don't want to 'look silly' in tight fitting lycra - the stigma for many remains. To these folk I say consider this: most of those who'll be paying you any mind while you ride around will be other cyclists; they will almost certainly think you look silly if you're riding around in loose, ill-fitting kit! Besides, you want to get the best from your investment so who cares what people who aren't part of the cycling fraternity think - if it fits properly, it works the way it's designed to.

    Q36.5 is highly technical kit; regionally sweat-mapped for optimum moisture management; ergogenic pattern cuts for best possible form-fitting and aerodynamics; not to mention the thermal conductivity that helps stabilise your body temperature, freeing up energy for riding. Fit is key and often at odds with your civvies.

    We recommend purchasing and wearing your Q36.5 garment ‘true to size’ - if you are usually a Medium, purchase a Medium. However, when trying on a Q36.5 garment for the first time please keep in mind that cut and fit is designed for on the bike comfort and performance and the user may feel a minor degree of strain (eg. in the shoulder and chest area of the jersey / jacket or the bib short braces) when standing upright.

    Try adopting a tucked, cycling position when trying kit on - all cycling clothing of any note is pre-shaped or cut in this position in order to deliver the technical benefits of the piece. When on the bicycle, any feeling of restriction should literally disappear and be replaced by a snug fit yet with excellent ease of movement, comfort and stability.

    If you are ever unsure of sizing - maybe you have no frame of reference or you've tried 2 sizes and both seem to fit - the recommendation is to size down!  Better to have your cycling kit tight than loose. Materials will give out slightly too and in the case of bibshorts, you want the pad firmly against you so you are stable in the saddle and so there is no rubbing of material or shifting of the pad - this only leads to bad places; saddle sores and ultimately, quicker wear in your kit.

    Exceptions to this are rare but recent style and cut changes to the patterned jerseys in the Q36.5 range have yielded some minor size changes. The original patterned R1 jerseys (eg Vaccaboia) that featured a Raglan sleeve cut, have now evolved into the G1 that features a new anatomical pre-shaped sleeve design for superior ergonomics. While the fit overall is improved, these G1 jerseys I find to be slightly shorter and a smidge tighter. If you are between sizes or already borderline on a size (close to it being too small), you may wish to size up one. Similarly, if you are not quite 'racing snake' and the size chart suggests you are a particular size - if you are close to the upper most extreme of that measure - you may wish to size up (it's how it works for me!)

    A note on socks : Q36.5 socks are supremely comfortable, easily the best I have ever owned. They last too and that feeling continues wash after wash where others become crisp and scratchy. If you are between sizes or unsure then I suggest you size down. There is plenty of stretch in Q36.5. With some models - notably the Be Love 0 and Be Love Seta - it is recommended that you cold-wash them before first use; they will shrink ever so slightly but not enough to warrant buying a size up.

    Base layers are critical to the performance of anything you layer over the top. They should absolutely be a second skin or they don't do their job. If it fits like your favourite Sunday afternoon baggy T-shirt, bin it!  Always buy the size that fits closest without any pinching under the arms or restriction at the cuff. Again, size down if you are unsure or between prescribed sizes. You may find that for the UK climate you can survive the winter in a short sleeve Q36.5 Base (Base Layer 2) - though this will depend on how you feel the cold. During summer, a base layer is still beneficial, helping to move moisture off the skin - where the temperature exceeds 24oC, you may find that an L1 Pinstripe Essential or Seta jersey are fine next to the skin.

    Get a Vest / Gilet! If you don't own one, this is the single piece of equipment that offers the broadest range of benefits. A good gilet offers wind protection on chilly mornings, late evenings, descents after hot and sweaty climbs; core protection in sudden downpours and is virtually indispensible year round. Not sure where the weather will go an any given ride? Stuff it in a jersey pocket and your core will always be protected, extending the operating temperature of the rest of your outfit; be that in summer or winter.

    Q36.5 make 4 key vests - one uniquely for potentially wet rides but that also serves to keep the wind off (R.Vest Protection); the all-round Vest L1 Essential that offers both thermal stability, insulation and weather protection; the new Air Vest, the ultimate in low bilk emergency wear that will keep the wind and showers from ruining your ride and that packs down incredibly small - it weighs just 69g;  and the Woolf Bombardino - a versatile gilet that can serve as a layering piece or an external weather defense during rides in changeable conditions - it's small too so ideal for summer trips to the mountains where temperature can vary sigificantly with elevation. Remember - the fit needs to be close, particularly when layering.
