Rachael Wight's picture

Previously Editor here at, Rachael is happiest on two wheels. Partial to a race or two Rachael also likes getting out into the hills with a big bunch of mates. In the past Rachael has written for publications such as, Enduro Mountain Bike Magazine, Mountain Biking UK, Bike Radar, New Zealand Mountain Biker and was also the online editor for Spoke magazine in New Zealand too. For as long as she's been riding, she has been equally happy getting stuck into a kit review as she is creating stories or doing the site admin. When she's not busy with all the above she's roasting coffee or coaching mountain biking in the Forest of Dean.

The ones in the photo are too short! The point of the Omloops is that they're supposed to come right down over your kneecap, keeping the muscles and the joint warm without restricting movement or bunching behind the knee. They're cut with the front of the knee lower than the back precisely for this purpose. If they don't do this they're no better than regular thermal bibs and cost quite a lot more.

I have a pair, they're superb in anything above about 5 degrees and are my go-to in the winter. I only wear long or 3/4 bibs when it's super-cold.
