Construction quality seems good, but they don't offer the right features for me - you buy cargo bibs for the pockets, so why is there only one leg pocket? Pockets on both legs would be more useful than pockets at the rear where they're less accessible and anyway your jersey probably has pockets at the rear.
So far as the chamois design is concerned, it's unusual, quite thin except for two small significantly thicker blocks, I guess where the rider's sit bones are thought likely to be. This didn't work for me with the saddle I like to use. I had the feeling of sliding and rolling on the saddle, it wasn't comfortable and I wouldn't be able to put up with it on an endurance ride. A more conventional chamois with wider, more even thickness would be better imo.
Thought these would be a good replacement for my previous Paria bib shorts, they're pretty comfortable and i love the pockets but they already have a lot of loose threads and signs of wear after only a couple of rides so doubting these will last very long unfortunately.
Very comfortable, stylish and practical bib shorts. Hoping to have more variety of different colors and design to choose from. Definitely will return to buy again.
Took me to the top of snowdon with no bum sores, and they carried all my treats plus a can for celebrations!
Been out a couple of times, initial review: fit well, pad is great and generally very stylish and comfortable. Extra pockets well thought out, really useful to have in addition to those on jersey. Left leg pocket is genius. Would recommend and will be buying any future offerings in this range.
AMAZING Quality - highly recommendLeeds, UK
I liked the look of this just from the photo and glad I ordered it.
I bought it for casual but realised how good it would be on the commute to work!
Feels fantastic and is a great fit. 👌London, UK
