Now in their third generation, the FS260-Pros are Endura’s best-selling bibs. They’re cut from an Italian performance fabric combined with a premium pad, and designed to offer quality, durability and good value.
Endura’s 600 Series pad is engineered in such a way as to have a high degree of stretch so it conforms to your shape. It boasts gel inserts and an antibacterial treatment.
The bibs are cut from supportive power Lycra. They have a pre-curved race fit designed to be comfortable whatever size you are or type of riding you do. Endura finishes the legs with 5cm-wide raw-edge hems, with silicone print for added grip.
The stretchy upper mesh bibs are designed to be cool over the lower back and stomach area and are combined with wide straps.
Endura FS260-Pro performance
It’s hard not to be impressed by the FS260-Pros, especially at this price. Endura has got all the ingredients bang-on for a great pair of all-round bibs.
The pad is shockingly good, price considered, and doesn’t feel overly big like with some lower-priced shorts. It is extremely adaptive and works with you as you pedal, providing amazing cushioning around the sit bones thanks to the gel inserts, without losing too much feeling on the saddle.
The legs don’t budge, courtesy of Endura’s neatly designed ‘power bands’, and the material is lightweight, thin and the raw edges provide a restriction-free ride.
Overall breathability of the Italian Lycra is pretty good, and these bibs never left me sweaty upstairs either thanks to the well-designed mesh uppers. The wide straps do a good job without bunching or digging in.
It’s nice to see Endura has added reflective logos and stripes on the back of the leg hems for night-time visibility.
Endura FS260-Pro bottom line
Endura has taken its years of experience working with professional riders and teams and transferred this knowledge into a brilliant pair of all-rounder bibs that will work for most riders.
The construction quality, luxurious fit and comfort are all exceptional, especially when you consider their price.
