Ultimate Freedom of Movement and Protection From The Elements

As the weather gets cooler, make sure you have the top-tier apparel that will keep you warm during those sub-optimal rides. With multiple fabrics that come together to keep you dry and comfortable, the Louis Garneau Men's Solano Tight is designed for your ultimate adventure.

These one-of-a-kind softshell pants use 3 different fabrics in specific areas to offer a perfect balance between protection from the elements, heat retention, and comfort. Light WindDry 2 fabric goes on the outside to keep moisture and cold air out, while HeatMaxx fabric goes against the skin to retain body heat and wick away moisture. Endurexx is also used for a soft touch that is chlorine-resistant for a superior sensation.

No matter what your preferred ride, stay comfortable with the Garneau Solano 3 Tights. Easy-access pockets at the right thigh are perfect for those last-minute ride essentials, while the ultra-stretchable ankle cuffs relieve tension thanks to the state-of-the-art triangle inserts. Reflective back and front accents keep you highly visible, so you can rock those rides even when light conditions are less than ideal.


  • Supra WindDry 3-ply softshell provides a 4-waystretch for breathable, windproof warmth properties
  • 4-way stretch HeatMaxx has an opaque construction knit with a brushed back
  • Chlorine-resistant Endurexx material is soft to the touch for added comfort
  • Laminated brushed softshell for element protection at the front of legs, back of calves, and brushed fabric at back for thermoregulation
  • Easy to relieve ankle cuffs with ultra-stretchable triangle inserts
  • Easy-access pockets at right thigh
  • Back reflective accents with front reflective element
  • No Chamois
  • Standard fit tech

    warm, durable winter tight

    I bike daily and average about 5000 miles annually, in the winter, I bike about 750 - 1000 miles even in the cold.

    The solano tight is well designed to protect the front of the legs whilst letting moisture out the back. The knee is a bit stiff to articulate, but after riding a bit it feels okay. Off the bike, I feel a bit restricted in terms of movement, but perhaps that is size-related.

    I previously used my other tights (not cycling tights) which were meant to be worn underneath as a base layer and those provided no wind protection so my knees (and legs) would be cool (not to be crude, but some external parts would be cold, especially when riding down to 10' F). The tight is a huge improvement over those tights (referencing earlier comment, no uncomfortable coldness in sensitive areas). Now that my legs are warm, the next thing I need to improve is my hands and feet.

    I get out of the tight carefully to avoid stretching it around the ankles and it also turns it inside out which lets it dry better. A zipper would be nice to make that easier, but if you need to dry the tight anyways, just get out of it carefully and slowly.

    I have only worn this one season and so far they seem durable and well made. I hope to get many seasons from this tight.

    In terms of sizing:

    I am 150 lb and 5'9" and am wearing the small tight. The small fits, but I think I am at the limit of the small, I think the medium would fit better. I am happy to have purchased the Solano tight to keep myself warm in the winter.

    Excellent tights. Completely warm and protected in 35 degree temps. Durable

    Use in temperatures 35-50 degrees. Great tights. Comfortable. Don't find them restricting.

    Keep your turkey sticks warm!

    Happy with these tights especially for the price I paid. Nice pocket that can keep a smaller phone on the side, thick fabric that's also pretty windproof. I've taken it for rides in the 30s and 40s with some wet mist and been very comfortable. Layers well over chamois shorts. Makes it possible for me to go out on the bright cooler days and got me home the one ride when it got wet on the second half.

    Nice tights for above freezing

    Just came back from a 2 hour fatty ride in 32 to 37 degree Fahrenheit weather. Comfortable the whole ride. Only negative, I like zippered legs.

    These are very warm but wick away moisture! The only problem is that they seem just a touch stiff making them very slightly harder to pedal. Worth it though if it's cold out.
