Sportful Total Comfort bib shorts review
Sportful’s ultra-thin Total Comfort bibs need a little care to put on, and are less elastic than most, but once in place they evenly spread the load across the body. Wide and slim leg grippers are gently elasticated with minimal silicone patches, but are very comfortable.
The pad is made up of five variable foam densities, putting extra cushioning where it’s needed. A tough, abrasion-resistant textured centre section limits saddle slip, and lighter Lycra ceramic fabric sides keep muscles cool.
With an innovative bib, a wonderfully upholstered pad and feather-edged leg grippers, these race worthy lightweight shorts offer everything you could ask for and will satisfy the most demanding wearer. They really couldn’t have been given a better name. The only thing we’re not sure about are the orange and white bib straps.
