Danijel is wearing The BIB Stealth

First time I heard about RedWhite was after an event in Croatia, 3 years ago.The event was HardCro, 1400km self-supported race across whole country. I didn't finish it in time limit. Mainly because of pain in my sitting area. After that I decided to do serious research about best ultra riding bibs you can find. To be clear I owned some famous brands, but wasn't really happy with them. I was a bit sceptical at first, but after talking to some friends and reading reviews, the decision to try RedWhite was set.

Ordered first pair, and after few months second pair because they were the game changer. Since then i have ridden many BRM (Brevet des Randonneurs Mondiaux) events, not caring about distance or time spent on bike.Those were some 1400 km, 1000km, 200km distances, with 2000m to over 10000m vertical climb, basically all events represented in BRM/ACP (Brevet des Randonneurs Mondiaux Audax Club Parisien).

There were times when on a shorter 200km BRM I wouldn't wear my The BIB Stealth, and would regret that decision after few hours in a saddle. After finishing this years (2019) Paris-Brest-Paris, I qualified for the Randonneur 10000 award.

To qualify for this award, the randonneur must complete 2 full series of ACP (Audax Club Parisien) brevets (200, 300, 400, 600 and 1000 km). Longer brevets cannot be substituted for shorter ones. I did the following rides in order to qualify for this award :

  • 1 Paris-Brest-Paris Randonneur (1200km)
  • Another 1200 km + event homologated by Les Randonneurs Mondiaux
  • 1 Fleche Velocio or National Arrow
  • 1 Super Randonnee (a ride of 600 km and at least 10,000 m (32.800 ft) of climbing, homologated by the Audax Club Parisien, ridden in the Randonneur division.)

I can say that RedWhites were with me all the way. And will be in future.
