Constructed from a lighter, more breathable Lycra than many bib shorts, these also have a minimal open weave bib.
The deep leg grippers work well and the fit and sizing are spot on.
At 1.5cm deep the HG07 pad is one of the thickest we've seen. It compresses well, making the bibs a good choice on big rides and long days.
Occasionally we did experience some ‘squirming’ between the pad and Lycra layer, but the Team bibs are remarkably good quality for the price.
