Polaris Venom Pro bib shorts - in brief review£74.99

Comfortable shorts with mesh bibs

BikeRadar score4/5

The Polaris Venom Pro bibs have an Italian-made pad (generally a sign of good quality), and its multiple densities provide a comfortable barrier between you and the road. It’s not the widest at the front, but its flexible nature keeps it in position with no rubbing. 

The shorts aren’t especially well vented, but we didn’t overheat in them, and the mesh back panel does a good job of wicking sweat away. The leg grippers consist of a section of folded-over material that we found comfortable. It aided the supportive nature of the shorts.
