As the name suggests these thin lightweight bib shorts are all about comfort however long you’re in the saddle.


They feature longer legs and are ideal for hot days with their mesh side-panels and airy uppers, although this does make them more delicate than some. The elastic and silicon leg grippers do their job well and sit without issue.

The narrow bib straps felt short on fitting and the overall feel is tight, but they work just fine once in the riding position.

The extra padding is ideal for long days and those who like a plush ride

Inside, the wide covering multi-density pad is thicker than others I’ve worn. It feels a little clumsy at first but, once pedalling, this multi-density pad that is up to 18mm thick, rides beautifully.

The extra padding is ideal for long days and those who like a plush ride. It also offers a forgiving ride if you head off-road on to the gravel. Build quality here is top drawer but they can come up smaller when compared to some of the other best bib shorts.
