Benefits of bicycle bibs versus shorts for both men and women

 

It may be a leap to try bicycle bib shorts for the first time but they offer many advantages over shorts - which is why all professional and vast majority of better riders use them by preference!

  • They are simply more comfortable - without an elastic waistband, and the structure keeps the nick and chamois in place better and without pressure points. Riders who try bibs typically tend not to go back to old style bicycle shorts.
  • There is more choice - as better riders use bib shorts most manufacturers release more, and better quality shorts, in the bib style. Many small brands do not do shorts and major brands (i.e. Assos, Santini) have a very reduced range, and typically suited for less advanced riding.

 

Who does not use bib shorts?

Many triathletes especially in competition where they use a short to pull over their swimming gear, or use a tri short or tri-suit with an integral thin chamois.

More women use knicks than men - for the added convenience in bathroom breaks.

Casual riders who use "Mountain Bike Shorts/Shy Shorts" for reasons of modesty and the added convenience of pockets. Though true mountain bike competition riders use bib shorts.

Hope this helps watch the video for more.

Santini Fluoro Orange Jacket

Highly visible & well protected against wind & rain. Great value.

Assos chamois cream

No matter how much you spend on nicks I recommend Assos chamois cream for every ride.

Winter warmers

I bought these longs for my husband for his birthday to do his morning rides as he really feels the cold. He is delighted with them and says they are very comfortable, size and fit very good and most importantly keeps him warm. They also arrived very promptly.

Quality product

Great product, and delivery was quick and cost effective.

Warm and perfect fit

Highly recommend these tights. Have been comfortable riding I them in in 7-15 degrees Celcius winter mornings. The padding is excellent, and the fit is perfect. Stitching is spot on too, also like the elastic around the ankles. Shipping was super quick too so all in all very happy customer.
