Cycling shorts are skin-tight, and intended to improve comfort and efficiency. The natural evolution of this is the ‘bib’ short. These are cut higher than a traditional cycling short ensuring there is no gap between your jersey and shorts, and they also feature integral suspenders/straps to keep them in place (rather than an elasticated waistband, which can be uncomfortable).
Cycling shorts have a whole host of features to make riding more enjoyable. They will be fitted with a chamois – a padded section offering comfort for your bum – and can have moisture wicking properties, offer compression, have SPF, improved aerodynamics, protection from road rash, waterproof, windproof, storage etc etc.
We have compiled the latest and best bib cycling shorts available on the market, from £50 right through to £235.
