LONG-DISTANCE BIBSHORTS THAT HELP YOU RIDE FURTHER, MORE COMFORTABLY
Trusted by thousands of long-distance cyclists around the world, RedWhite Apparel's Bibshorts is the pinnacle of on-bike comfort.
Get the best bibshort you will ever own.
RedWhite apparel has stood the test of fussy riders, sensitive skin, multiple weather changes in one ride, and many , many kilometres. RTFI Club Cycliste rides approximately 2,000kms a week between their three groups. Most of the riders use RedWhite stealth bibs because they work. Functionally they offer cushion support and compression without crushing the life out of your Family Jewels. They are comfortable and durable. They breathe and move. Testimony to a well designed piece of kit is that it feels intuitive to the point of being invisible. We ride Red White because of that. It never tries to be the star of the show, it just makes stars of the riders that use them. Thank you Red White!!
Been on a few long rides with them, zero issues! I ride about 1500 miles a month and these bibs ROCK!
I tell everyone I can to buy these and that you don’t even need chamois cream. I am 6’ tall and 180lbs and wear the XL, fits like a glove. A+
Love this bib, I specially use this bib for the 6 plus hour days on the bike. The chamois is very nice. The overall fit is perfect!!
Great bib to carry a lot. I have used these several times with riding support for people. These bibs allow me to carry all my food, phone, flat kit, wallet, and also carry the person I am supporting all their stuff. That way my customers can have a great experience. Very comfortable
Was recommended to this brand by a friend who does regular long distances. Had minor issues with my first pair and was already impressed with the efficacy of the customer service. The shorts are superbly comfy and almost half the price of other bibshorts I saw. It's so convenient that it's machine washable too! I used to get hot spots and chafing when I did my 100kms. With these, even without chafing cream, I felt like I could do MORE. Am looking forward to getting more pairs of these! They are my go to bibshorts now!
I can't speak well enough about the excellent customer service and the value of these bibs. I'm 5'9" tall and weight 163 lbs, which put me near the breaking point of medium and large. I contacted Yuva several times and each time he promptly responded to my questions. I ordered a medium and was so pleased with them that I ordered a second pair. It is a rare occurance to have such great service combined with unquestioned value. If you need bids for the long haul, get these.
This is the second pair of these I have purchased, and like the first pair these are great cycling bibs. They do as they are described to do and comfort for long periods in the saddle. I recommend these to anyone who rides long distances or rides multiple days in a row.
I am between sizes, the XL’s I ordered were too big, these bibs gotta fit tight! Unfortunately, fit issues became very apparent on the first ride. Now with a non-returnable pair of XL’s Yuva discounted the second pair, a Large. They fit and feel great! Very happy with the quality of these bib’s as well the comfort. Now that I have the size dialed in, I’ll be back for another pair.
The service I received was exceptional, Yuva quickly responded via email, my questions were answered promptly. Both orders were processed and arrived here in Canada within days. I could not have asked for better service all around! Thankyou Yuva!
I commute to work across a couple provinces (Canada), so this means I need double of everything….including bib shorts! I’ve been searching for a comfortable pair for a few years and have been thoroughly impressed with the quality, fit, comfort and chamois in these shorts. It’s an extra bonus that they ship fast and communicate quickly. I’ve purchased 6 pairs and will buy a couple more as I’ve replaced all my old bibs with these. Im a heavy cyclist at 235lbs (107kg), i don’t ride crazy distances but do complete one or two 100km rides a month, I also spend a fair amount of time on the trainer. If they are this comfortable for me I can’t imagine how comfortable these would feel on a lighter rider.
Full disclaimer, at this point I've only worn $30 knock of bibs from Asia. I'm 6' tall, 162lbs, ride 200-300 miles a week. A few of those weekly rides fall in the 3-5 hour window. I've experienced chronic saddle sores despite three different bike fits on an endurance bike with 4 different saddles.
Yuva recommended the Mediums, they were significantly tighter around the groin area than I was accustomed to. Not having prior experience with high end bibs I wasn't sure if this was meant to be. He assured me it was. After using them twice I was getting some discomfort in the groin region, I suspected from being too tight or too short for my torso. But after a few washes this discomfort seemed to diminish greatly. Still Yuva was willing to swap them out for a large, even though I had worn and washed them several times. In light of that I went to order a second pair, and decided to stick with the medium. He saw my order, emailed me and suggested I tried the large. I agreed, he sent them and they're more comfortable and feel almost exactly the same in size, as the mediums, I was afraid they'd be too large, but they're not (at least after three wears/washes).
A quick word about Yuva. The man gives me hope in the world, I will be a loyal fan for life, and I wish more businesses took on the time, care, and work ethic he has. At the very least support his business, he deserves it like no other. He spent a significant amount of time, talking me through what I needed, when the first pair didn't have the perfect fit he sent the next size up, he didn't have to but he did. And I greatly respect that.
One last thing. These were shipped from Singapore to the US. I got them in under a week. A comparison, I bought a jersey from Siroko, based in Spain. They took almost a month to arrive, the sizing chart was waaaay off. I asked to exchange them. They said they would issue a refund, I had to ship at my expense which was $US20, when it got to Spain they emailed me and said I had to pay them an additional $28 to be released from customs. That's almost $50 to return an $80 jersey. I told them to keep it.
Having now completed over a thousand miles in RedWhite bibs I now feel that I can give an honest and measured review.
We are bombarded with hype and technical bull regarding this and that “space age tech” thousands of hours of testing in our labs bla, bla, bla.
The fact is once you’ve Been riding for a while and spent a substantial amount of cash on carbon crap, high end parts titanium bolts waxed chains ceramic bearings £240 bibs.
I have done all of this and more.
So when the truth finally dawns that what you truly love is just riding your bike and it really doesn’t matter what you ride an old beat up steel frame or the latest carbon wonder, what really matters is how long you can bear sitting on it.
With these bibs the answer is all day.
The thing is the first 25 miles will alway feel a bit uncomfortable no matter what your wearing it’s the next 100 mile+ that makes the difference and these do that.
All day riding is not a problem and that’s what matters here.
They are for long distance. Not 25 mile time trials.
but it’s not just the quality of the product, which is great bye the way it’s the personal touch which tips the scales for me.
Yuva is contactable at any time he personally answers any queries, the customer service is outstanding and that says it all to me.
I do hope this continues.
The only criticism I have is that
I am not the tallest of men
1.7m so all bibs, regardless of manufacture are alway too long in the leg why can you not make short leg versions.
I have spoken with Yuva about this so maybe it may happen.
I can’t be the only short arse around.
Oh and the Cargo bibs are also brilliant more pockets than you can shake a stick at.
Next purchase are winter tights
You can send me a pair of large when they come back in stock😉
as a long standing customer of RED WHITE i can assure you that when you purchase from RED WHITE you are getting a qualitly product at a great price. Yuva backs this up with second to none customer service which you would struggle to find else where. I had to return my bibshorts as they were the incorrect size (my fault) and the process was simple and fast Yuva was always accomdating and made the return and the change to correct size easy ..
if your in the market for quality gear RED WHITE are your go to .. forget the big name brands these stack up to any of them without the over inflated price tag .. backed up by great customer service , cant beat that combination
I decided to purchase bibs that I might have greater comfort in the seat area; they helped me. The quality of these bibs seems good and the price seemed fair. I watched some YouTube videos that helped me choose RedWhite, Charles' videos.
I wasn't sure of the correct size, RedWhite ordering system enabled me to choose the correct size (I had gained an additional 60 pounds or so during the past 3 years in hormone therapy for prostate cancer and required 3xl). I hadn't ridden bicycle for 2-3 years, but am riding again because I was diagnosed with high sugar. I just turned 70, and am trying to stave off other health concerns as long as possible.
I loved the first pair so much that I order another set on 2 additional occasions. They fit a little snugger compared to other brands I’ve used. I have small legs so this was a plus for me. A+ on a great bib at a great price. Yuva’s customer service is superb.
I really like the comfortable fit on the bib especially on long ride Century. Love the stretch material and the navy color go well with my Jersey. I would like to purchase another soon. Thank you Red White.
