Does anyone have breeches with silicon grips?

Just wondering if the grips come off over time?

Never heard of them before.

All these new 'inventions' of people learned to ride with balance then there is no need for these fancy pants.

I would imagine that it would come off....but I will never know, because not much gives me the heeby-jeebies worse than touching that silicone!

So far mine haven't! I bought a cheap pair to try and they are very comfy. The silicone is just on the knee. It isnt sticky or gross in any way...

They certainly won't glue you to the saddle or improve your riding. Just handy if you have a slippy saddle or want a touch of extra grip on your legs.

Somewhere else I was reading reviews of the silicone Piper tights and people liked them.

Well so far so good. I rode in my new ones (full seats) several times and am in love! Really great for hot days when you don't want to wear the diaper bum leather full seats

I'm looking at the Kerrits Icefil with full seat silicone carrots pattern. I was also wonderring if they would wear fast with use.

I have two pairs of Kerrits tights and I LOVE them. They're very cool to wear (as in temperature, not awesomeness).
