Bibshorts, what brand?
Well the ones that work the best for me are:
All pads work as well as each other but the finish and comfort on the craft and Morvelo are excellent and worth paying the extra for. but the alturas are a bargain.
It would be worth buying/trying on a few pairs to see fit. I’ve found a few brands where the pad wasn’t in the right place for me etcPosted 3 years agohilldodgerMember
My preference is Santini, usually whatever style Prendas on sale in my size!Posted 3 years ago
I’m going to be trying a few brands on, but the choice in-store is surprisingly small. I guess that’s what it’s come to with online giants stealing all the business, and with high-value products in stock.
Want to buy some quality shorts, although my Endura 3/4 bibs are still going strong after about 10 years, although a bit warm in the summer. My last pair were some Santini on offer from Sport Pursuit, but the insert delaminated after only a few wears/washes.Posted 3 years agodazhSubscriber
These fit in with my policy of not spending more than £50 on a pair of lycra shorts. Very nice they are too.Posted 3 years agoteamslugSubscriber
FWIW Just bought some Endura FS260 pro’s. I really like them but then all endura gear is pretty damn good. Got funkier gel ones too but I think enduras are comfier. Decathlon top of range ones have a really good pad too. I have their winter longs with same pad and they are really comfy FOR ME. Its like saddles…no definitive answer on best.Posted 3 years ago
In the market for some new do-everything (road & mtb) bibshorts, but not sure which brand to go for.
The usual requirements: Comfy, flat seams, good insert, wash/wear well, leg grippers that don’t hurt like buggery… Budget under £100.
I know a lot of these are very personal but would like to hear your personal faves to sway my decision…Posted 3 years agoultimateweevilMember
I don’t wear bibs on the MTB but for road I have castelli and Sportful. The castelli just pips the Sportful in terms of comfort but they are thinner so not great on colder days compared to the Sportful ones. Just look around and you can get their better sets for under £100 easily like I did.Posted 3 years agomogrimSubscriber
I like Specialized.
How long or how many miles have you had the Decathlons for lunge? Have you had any falls in them?
My previous Decathlon (top of range, still <70€ IIRC) were great; when it came to replace them I got some more – and I’m not sure what they’ve changed but they’re nothing like as comfortable. Purely personal experience of course, no two bums are alike. I ended up replacing them with some Specialized ones which are a lot more comfortable.
They lasted pretty well, got at least a couple of years out of them. Survived a couple of falls, although it’s pretty sandy round here and I didn’t hit any big rocks (fortunately!)Posted 3 years agobreatheeasyMember
I’ve found a few brands where the pad wasn’t in the right place for me etc
I’ve been trying to find a new set of shorts – evey pair I’ve tried on has the pad waaaay to forward, my sit bones on some aren’t actually on the pad (one pair of Enduras felt like I’d got them on back to front). My old Assos were fine, caouldn’t wear the new ones. Same for Sugoi etc. etc. – Pearl the next ones to tick off the list to try.
Has anyone else noticed that the pads seem to be further forward these days?Posted 3 years agosoma_richMember

I’ve gradually been working my way up the price scale when it comes to shorts.
The more I’ve paid the better value I’ve thought they’ve been.
Most recent purchase was a pair of Asos 3/4 bib shorts. Fit and comfort is the best.
Most ridden is a pair of Endura MT500 bibs – had them 5 wears, worn weekly and still as good as new.
Anything less than £50 wears out too quickly for me.Posted 3 years ago
