Anyone using PI Gavia tights??

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Anyone using PI Gavia tights??

I want to pick up some tights and wonder if anyone who is using Gavia tights would tell me what you think of these. I'm looking for something to protect me from wind and water, as well as the sun. Let me know the pros and cons.

Thanks,
Mike

They will protect you from both wind and water - but these tights were designed for cold weather use. i'm not sure what kind of sun you are looking to block. They would probably be too warm for you over 40-50 degrees F.

See, that's what I'm afraid of. I don't ride my road bike when it's cold so I don't need a cold weather tight but I do want something covering my legs when it's still cool in the spring. Also, I commute on my road bike when the weather is nice and since I work nights I head in at about 9:00 PM and come home at 7:00 AM which means that it's generally cool when I ride but again it's not so cool that I need heavy tights.

If anyone has recommendations for a lightweight tight I'd be interested in hearing about them.

Mike
