Ale PRR Bermuda bib shorts review

Fluoro Italian style with lots of technical detailing

BikeRadar score5/5

Lets get the Euro neon style point out of the way first – you’ll either love it or loathe it. Out on the road, reaction was a 50/50 mix, but beyond that lies a short with some incredibly well thought out detail.

    The heart of the success lies in the silicone impregnated, woven fabric used for both the 60mm leg grippers and the bib ‘straps’. They’re grippy without being grabby and stretchy without constricting – functionally perfect.

    The construction and functionality of these shorts is assisted by way of an open weave, horizontal stretchy fabric between the straps that keeps them in place without allowing too much movement, or retaining excess heat.

    Sew in an awesome insert with super supportive 90kg/cm2 padding in its central zone, and an anti-bacterial cover that has retained its softness after a lot of washes and you end up with hard saddle edges being well hidden from the posterior without adding any unneeded bulk.
