Nopinz Pro-1 Bib Shorts – Men

Impressive performance, a great fit and a chamois that's comfortable for long distance rides. They're also great value compared with similar designs.

NoPinz makes the Pro-1 shorts with its Speedscalez fabric. It's meant to be really aero but, while we can't test that, we can say that the fabric is comfortable and the shorts are very well put together.

The number one factor that determines how good a pair of bibs are is the pad and this is top-tier here. Our tester was comfortable on their long-distance rides and if you're a racer, NoPinz has you covered with plenty of padding at the front of the pad for those 'on the rivet' efforts.

The leg length is deliberately long, with aero benefits in mind, though it might not be to everyone's taste; on our reviewer, the shorts ended just above the knee.

Another impressive aspect of these shorts, given the performance, is the price. Retailing at £94.99, these are great value compared with others out there.
