Bib shorts, your advice please.
Branding heavy so fine under baggies but I’d love to know who makes them for Zipvit.
bit of digging and i might be wrong.
based on cut and pad, the pad is less common than some.
As i said could be completely wrong thoughPosted 3 years agobob_summersMember
The DHB Aeron pros for me, at least, are equal to Assos in terms of long distance comfort (based on 20,000km a year) but fall short (hah) in quality. Latest pair of DHBs have some hanging threads and broken bits of elastic, the material doesn’t feel so nice, but then I can get two (or three?) pairs for the price of one pair of F1 milles so I’ll put up with it. The Assos ones don’t last appreciably longer either.Posted 3 years agoOnzadogSubscriber
Thanks for all the comments folks.
I’m a little cautious about the idea of endura as its their shorts that are rubbing me up the wrong way currently. Having said that, I guess the 260 pro bibshorts might be a totally different beast from the mt500 shorts I’m currently using.
The Castelli seem like a reasonable compromise between cost and quality from what people have said.
Any advice on sizing? Are they best sized by height or waist? Do the size charts give an accurate guide?
Thanks again folks.Posted 3 years agoplop_pantsMember
I’ve mainly used Assos F1 Unos over the years. They’ve be fine for riding the Roubaix and Flanders cobbles and other long days in the saddle. The only disappointment is the lycra does last as well as the pad. It gets pretty see through after a while, so much so your bum cleavage is visible! But after two years of heavy use its not surprising this happens to mine.
Agree Castelli’s rubbish pad stitching.
I’d be very interested to know if anyone uses F1 Unos and the Morvelo stuff and if they compare well.Posted 3 years ago
