The leg openings are lined with silicone gripper tape which keeps the shorts in place, preventing them from sliding up your legs when you're cycling. A large mesh panel fills the back of the bibs, which helps to avoid overheating.
They're simply styled shorts with the contrast stitching and a splash of colour on the legs, along with the logo running vertically along the side. A handful of reflective dots at the lower legs provides good visibility for other road users either behind or approaching from the side.
Providing the all-important comfort on the saddle is an anatomically designed single layer pad, with an anti-bacterial treatment. It's a simple insert, but is well shaped and sits smoothly against the body. Best of all, it's surprisingly effective, providing decent cushioning for rides last a couple of hours long.
Considering the £30 price tag the level of comfort provided here is really good, and puts some more expensive shorts to shame. You can choose from five colours so you can coordinate them with the rest of your kit and your bike, if you're that way inclined.
Proving bib shorts don't have to cost a fortune, these £30 shorts are surprisingly comfortable and fit well
