This slide-locking snap closure will keep you buttoned up, even when you're letting loose.
Our 4-way mechanical stretch gives you maximum flexibility. This short will truly keep up with you where ever you are headed!
Pop colors and tastefully designed reflective details give you added style, and safety, on the road.
For cycling bibs and shorts, the HIP MEASUREMENT is the most crucial factor. Measure around the WIDEST POINT of the hips/bum. If you are between sizes or petite (5'3" or under), we recommend SIZING DOWN for a compressive fit. A snug fit is crucial to performance. Check out our FIT GUIDE for more detailed instructions, or pop your measurements into the fit calculator above for a personalized recommendation! (Please note, the fit guide requires chest, waist and hip measurements.)
Love these shorts. I wear them every day because I have 3 different colors lol! Seriously, zip pockets, wash and dry perfectly, wrinkle-free, work with padded shorts …what else do you need?
These fit true to size unlike the bibs I ordered— I got a 27, which is my size in denim usually. I’m 5’4”, 130 lbs, 39” hip. I can fit a padded liner underneath. Very stretchy and comfy, fabric is thick but not too thick. The hem band is a little snug/unstretchy but I think that’s what keeps them from riding up while riding.
I love these shorts. They fit nicely and don’t chafe. I did size up based on reviews. The hidden pocket in back is cool but sadly too small for my phone. But there are so many pockets! Easy to ride in and I think they look great. And the material is top notch.
I am so happy to have found the best shorts ever, very sad that I won't be able to buy replacements in the future
Love these shorts, my second pair. Can wear hiking, casual cycling, supermarket runs. the fabric is so smooth and has nice give. Perfect length for me at barely 5’5. I haven’t tried on my trail bike but think they would be good with a liner.
