The ‘Tommeke’ bib tights by Belgian Boys Club are named after one of Belgium’s favourite sons, Tommeke Boonen. With the inputs of a Belgian pro rider, they have been rigorously tested on the cobbles of Flanders to ensure the materials and construction provide optimal comfort and warmth in challenging conditions.
As part of the Tommeke line these bib tights have had to adhere to a very strict code of conduct, but in the search of perfection we revised and improved the collection and we are proud to introduce the latest in winter fabrics with HEAT Generation Technology™. A fabric that thanks to its functional yarn and special knitting patterns, minimizes the heat loss and keeps the warmth during and after exercise. Made of a dual membrane with soft-brushed inner liner, is a true thermo-regulating fabric system. During exercise the layers brush against each other, generating at least a two-degree temperature increase because of the physical process of elongation, so reducing entropy. This new Heat Generation technology™ reduces heat loss and maintains a constant body temperature during and after exercise.
Anatomically shaped for maximum comfort, compression and support, these tights are finished with flat-lock stitching to avoid any discomfort during riding. Not completely satisfied with the protective properties, we added a windproof and water repellent treatment, making these tights stretch to new heights.
We also added a Belgian Boys Club unique white reflective strip at the rear of both legs to increase visibility in low light conditions.
But what good is comfort without style, so we went about designing the cleanest, most stylish bib tights imaginable, and only then did we feel they were worthy of the ‘Tommeke’ signature.
