No piece of apparel impacts the riding experience more than bibs, and for 2019 we have re-imagined our bib shorts from the beginning.
With a new, proprietary fit and a collection to meet a range of performance goals, our bib shorts are in a league of their own. They have won awards, accolades, converts and inspired our Signature Guarantee: a try-it-and-return-it-for-any-reason promise to make riding better. With all that, there's still more to learn. They've all enjoyed an overhaul, and here's what sets each bib short we offer apart within our collection.
Our proprietary chamois uses two layers of foam to create two-stage suspension without increased bulk.
A high density base foam provides a stable platform, while anti-vibration ischial inserts create enhanced support where you need it most. Perforated foams and top fabric breathe and dry quickly.
Ultrasonic sewing - where two materials are joined by stitching heads vibrating at 20,000 times per second or more. Using this method creates a smoother surface that won't chafe or catch, increasing stitch flexibility and limiting irritation.
Our men's chamois features a pre-shaped anatomic cup for pressure reduction and better fit.
Making women's nature breaks easier
The next generation of our FLY technology, the FLYfree offers pee-break-friendly functionality in a high performance design with minimal adaptation and zero extraneous features.
No clips. No helmet or jersey removal. Just a quick stop-and-drop design integrated into our comfort-focused bib shorts.
The exclusive CONCEPT chamois is completely integrated into the patterning of the short - making it more like shorts built around a chamois than a chamois added to shorts. This integration means fewer seams and chafe points, leading to a more fluid pedaling motion.
This new design means the chamois stays in place while you pedal, conforming to your body and matching your every move. From the outside, it's the cleanest and most streamlined bib short available on the market and sets a new standard for what's possible for high performance cycling apparel.
Designed as our all-day bib short, it's created from the softest, most luxurious fabric we could source. Minimal seams, fewer panels and high-density knit compression fabric provide unmatched comfort and support for long days in the saddle.
Our go-to bib short for any ride, the Signature strikes the perfect balance of compression, support and breathability to be the most versatile bib short we make. Excels at any duration of ride through the broadest temperature range.
Less is more. When the mercury climbs but the ride must go on, the Ultralight Bib Short offers hot weather comfort. 140 g/m² Lycra fabric strips away anything but the lightest short for easier riding in hot weather. Often used as an indoor bib short, the Ultralight is a year-round staple with the comfort of a much heavier bib tuned to higher temperatures and higher outputs.
We took the same great fit and comfort from our Signature Bib Short and sought where we could make it more affordable without generally compromising quality. Using a slightly thinner chamois, Foundation is perfect for shorter distances or a mid-week lunch ride.
