everve’s ME bib shorts and One jersey have been designed with comfort and style in mind, with what seems like a simple idea for improving seated comfort on the bike, swappable chamois pads.

With up to 18 pad options available in variable thicknesses and coverage, it’s a surprisingly effective solution.

The seat area has two layers of four-way stretch fabric, and each half of the two-part seat pad is encapsulated within an individual pocket that’s accessed via several opposing baffled openings.

The reason you need access to the seat pad is because everve’s minimal padding philosophy allows you to swap the paired pads over to customise the thickness and coverage.

There are nine thicknesses of dense polyurethane foam available and the pads are supplied in two shapes: standard and what everve call me.nimalist.

Standard pads have a 181mm-long elongated droplet shape, while the me.nimalist ones are more pear-shaped and 136mm long.

The multi-panel shorts can be ordered with low- or high-fronted bibs. My high pair has a stretchy mesh section above the waist that’s flattering and comfortable, while the entire back is similarly meshy.

The e7 standard pads that were in my shorts felt less bulky than I expected, but with all the comfort I needed. Swapping pads is a little fiddly the first time, but an online video is available to help.

With no padding or towelling up front, there’s no discomfort or chafing from bunching, and a definite sense of limited freedom, plus improved breathability.

Overshadowed on the tech front by the bib shorts, the One jersey is nevertheless very nicely constructed with soft, super-stretchy Polyamide Lycra and has a tough full-length zip with lower protector.

Generously long, raw-edge sleeves, a taller-than-average collar, plus three drop pockets with internal reinforcement add to the flap-free fit, which remains body-hugging without feeling over tight anywhere.
