7mesh WK3 Bib Short
The 7mesh WK3 bib shorts pack in a super-plush chamois, a second-skin feel and an 'easy pee' function that is genuinely easy. And while they also come with the £160 price tag, they could be the only pair you need, with their endurance-focused comfort and sleek, lightweight design covering everything from laid-back days to racing.
Reviewer Janine found these bib shorts seriously comfortable in all the right places. The shorts offer an aesthetic of clean-cut minimalism – forget fancy graphics, these shorts don't even have a gripper band or horizontal leg seam.
The silky-smooth fabric (78% nylon, 22% elastane) twinned with the absence of horizontal leg seams and the stretchiest straps make for a true second-skin feeling. This is further bolstered by the (partially recycled) 'Space' chamois that 7mesh co-developed with Elastic Interface.
If you're a rider who finds forward-focused pads frustrating in terms of rear comfort, these could be the shorts for you; the pad is designed to support upright riding for over seven hours. Having tested it on road and gravel, we were seriously impressed.
The 'Pull2P' technology is 7mesh's answer to the need to quickly squat for a comfort break without having to hang your jersey on a gatepost. All you have to do is pull them down at the back thanks to a cleverly crafted combination of a wide, yoga-style waistband and Go Go Gadget-esque bib straps.
