Madison’s Sportives are made using panelled stretch Lycra that’s cut pre-curved into the riding position. This fabric isn’t thermal but the quality over cheaper nonthermal knickers shines through, feeling good from the off. Folded hems with internal silicone grippers do a top job of keeping the legs in place. Airy, soft upper bibs with wide shoulder straps make for a breathable and comfortable ride. We were impressed with Madison’s 4G-Race gel pad, which features an anti-bacterial fabric and rides well without feeling overly bulky. There are cheaper non-thermal bibs but these are ideal for milder autumn rides.
