Q36.5 Womens Winter Tights : Womens Fusion Chamois Pad Information

Season : AW20

Brand : Q36-5

Code : Q365014L.

Like other pieces of Equipment in the Q36.5 Women Collection, the Winter Tight Lady is calibrated for the needs, function, activity and anatomic & ergonomic demands of the female body. Rather than using a bib or brace system, Q36.5 use an ergonomically paneled waist system that avoids the use of the standard circular elasticated panel in favour of a shallow contoured shape, which places less pressure on the rider’s waist. Q36.5 have chosen to do this because women often prefer the lack of braces both for a less retrictive feel and also for ease of removal for comfort breaks.

Like the Waisted Short that Q36.5 engineer for women, the tight is cut according to a precise Ergogenic Pattern. The tights have targeted support for different muscle groups during cycling and minimal panels and seams - none of which face forward in an effort to minimise aerodynamic drag - and they are re-engineered for the female anatomy. Rather than simply re-shaping a men's tight, the particular weave used in the main leg panels is made from a distinctly softer version of material used in the men’s model.  This fabric, in addition to its softer feel, has a unique polyamide formula designed to improve circulation. Like all of their legwear, Q36.5 use a densely woven panel at the lumbar area where it helps to maximise body alignment throughout the pedal stroke. This area is important as many of the larger muscle groups meet here. In addition, the support offered through this higher density area also serves to reduce muscle fatigue and you can literally feel the assistance as you ride. Q36.5 refer to this as Vectorial Elasticity.

The women's Winter Tights combine functionality and safety in equal measure. For the areas that require more thermal protection (glutes, thighs and knees) a dense fleece backed polyester and polyamide mix is used while the calves employ a reflective fleece fabric. In combination they integrate the thermal requirement next to the skin with an externally reflective surface for visibility at night.

The most important element of any cycling legwear is of course the pad. The Winter Tight Lady uses a female-specific version of the world-first fusion chamois technology system employed in the Dottore Womens shorts: it uses both sewn and thermo-moulded padding technologies in a single chamois, fusing the best of both into a single design: 120kg high density open cell foam is cut and sewn for the perineal (front) area, where the most flexibility and breathability is required while ‘smooth’ multi-density thermo-moulded pads are used for the ischial (rear) area, where flexibility is tempered in favour of support and padding.

All told, the Q36.5 Women's Winter Tights offer a thermal, durable and hardwearing winter tight with a more traditional feel and functionality, the addition of the new reflective panelling in the lower leg helps to aument the safety aspect so key for winter riding.

  • 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 or shoes ‘true to size’ - if you are usually a Medium, purchase a Medium; 43.5 shoe then 43.5. 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 - this is totally normal and preferred since you don't ride 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. With shoes, you want a small gap between your toes and the end of the shoe. As you ride, your feet swell and your arches collapse slightly causing your feet to 'creep'. Most of this movement is lateral but there is some longitudinal movement also. If your toes are at the end of the shoe to begin with - you will suffer with numbness and pain.

    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 patternedR1 jerseys (eg Vaccaboia) that featured a Raglan sleeve cut, have now evolved into the G1that 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 theWoolf 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.

    Sizing Information

    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!)

    The new R2 Jersey range is marginally more accommodating than the G1 but in most cases not enough to warrant a change in size - we recommend sticking to your 'normal' jersey sizing.

    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.
