We know it’s not easy to find the perfect bib shorts. Especially when buying from a website. So we put together this guide listing all of our current bibs and shorts, highlighting two things you need to know about each.
When we say a bib is CLASSIC FIT, we mean it is meant to fit snug, but comfortable. When we say a bib is SLIM FIT, we again mean that it’s snug to the body, but this time we’re using higher compression fabrics and construction methods to give you a racier, more pro fit. When we say a bib is SLEEK FIT, we mean it is optimized for aerodynamics and has the high-compression fabrics, patterns, and details that we use in clothing for world-class professional athletes.
Different kinds of riding need bibs and shorts with different qualities. Along with how they fit and feel, seat-padding (chamois) most determines whether the bib or short is best suited for long distance riding and racing, medium-distance training, or short, intense rides. The guide spells out our thoughts on what kinds of rides each particular model is best for.
We made REDUX bibs for high-performance training and racing. Equipped with our lightweight, ultra-distance C3 padding, REDUX bibs are great for competitive gran fondos, centuries, epic challenge rides, all-day training rides, Ironman triathlons, etc.
We made GENIO bibs for high-performance training and racing. Equipped with our lightweight, ultra-distance C3 padding (the seatpad so comfortable it’s used Trek Segafredo for Grand Tour racing), GENIO bibs are great for all-day training rides, Granfondo’s, Centuries, etc.
SLEEK99 bib shorts are designed for racing and performance training. They’re built around our most-popular and durable all-around, Gel Intech Evolution (GITevo), with Twist gel core for incredible performance even over long distances (up to six-hour rides).
For racing and high-volume training, especially in hotter climates. TONO includes the NAT chamois, our lightweight NEXT technology silicone-gel based seatpad. The NEXT silicone insert has unique perforations with ridged edges that allow heat and moisture to escape while reducing friction. Which means NAT is an ideal distance pad and even better for hot-weather riding.
MAGO is our best-value bib, an affordable performance option with an elevated chamois. NAT paddings feature the NEXT silicone wedge has unique perforations with ridged edges that allow heat and moisture to escape as well and reduce friction in the saddle. Which means NAT is an ideal distance pad.
SCATTO bibs come with our Gel Intech Evolution (GiTEvo) padding, the latest iteration of our best-selling and most popular Twist-Gel chamois. We’ve been using Twist Gel cores for almost two decades. They provide terrific value – durable and suitable for long rides. Use SCATTO for long group rides, all-day adventures, even racing, as your core, everyday bib.
Designed to give you a performance bib short with the added comfort of knowing it will protect your skin from road rash. IMPACT bibs come with our ultra-distance C3 padding, with ergonomic 3D surface and sculpted gel core. The C3 seatpad is so comfortable it’s the exact same one that Trek Segafredo uses in Grand Tour racing.
For all-around cycling. FASE bibs and shorts come with our eMAX padding, an engineered, 3D-molded, multi-density foam-core pad that’s as good as or better than the chamois in bibs with much higher price tags. Perfect for group rides, shorter races, intense trainer sessions or cycle classes.
