INOV-8 AT/C 3QTR TIGHT

price: £50
weight: 190g

These stylish, technical tights fit brilliantly: they’re quite short, cut to just cover the knee, but have sticky grippers to stop them riding up. The nylon/spandex mix material is durable but also stretchy and comfortable. A useful but small zipped rear pocket and two open gel pockets mean you can often go without a pack. Large reflective logos keep you visible.

best in test

Ideal for long days or big races in serious places.
