Review: Sobike NENK Winter Cycling Pants
With temps in the mid 20's I had the opportunity to try out a pair of Sobike NENK Winter Cycling Pants.
It is often I get goodies in the mail and I look at them and say, hmmm... I don't think so. But not this time. They felt warm, they looked great, and they looked very durable - all the stitching was top-notch.
I threw on a pair of riding tights and the Sobikes and headed out to the trails. I was very surprised that at 25 degrees, on the trail for 2 hours I never once thought about them. They were truly warm and fits well enough that I had no issues getting in and out of the saddle and the leg length covered my boots well.
The day was particularly wet - and while they did get soaked from tire splash, I did not notice any moister getting through in the seat or at my legs. To that end they protected me very well from the wind, and at speeds of 25+ mph I only notice a little difference - I was quite surprised.
One note, I'm 5'8" 215 pounds wear a 34" waist Levi and the XL fit awesome - smaller than the chart recommended.
