Yasui is wearing The BIB

ロードバイクに慣れ始め持っていたビブショーツをより良いものに買い換えようと調べていたところ,
RedWhiteを知りました。

レーシング性の高いビブショーツは締め付けがキツいものが多く,ロングライドではそこが嫌だした。

また,値段も高い。

RedWhiteのビブショーツはロングライドの快適性が高いと評判で,値段も手頃だったので購入してみました。

実際に距離100km,獲得標高2000m程度で使用してみると,お尻がこれまでより遥かに痛くなりにくく快適に過ごせました。

頻繁にパッドの良い評判を聞きますが(もちろんパッドの性能は良いですが),私は太ももと肩紐の絶妙な締め付け具合が特に気に入っています。

これ以上締まるときつくなり長く履いていると不快感が出てくるが,これ以上ゆるいと生地がたるみやっぱり不快になる。このバランスがとても素晴らしいです。

ロングライド,ツーリング,レース,グラベル何でも使います。

このビブショーツが110ドルで購入できることも非常に嬉しいです。

欲を言えば,もっと遊んだ派手なデザインのものがあると嬉しいです。

今後も使っていきます。

I was looking to replace the current bibshorts I own which I wasn't happy with and came across RedWhite Apparel about 3 months ago. Typical bibshorts designed for racing are too tight and I wanted a bibshort that was form fitting, yet wasn't overly compressive for long distance riding. I also found many racing bibshorts on the market just too expensive for me.

RedWhite's Bibshorts had a reputation for their comfort on long distances. They were also relatively affordable, so I made a purchase. I tested them on a 100km ride that had 2000m of vertical gain and found the fit very comfortable, particularly around my hips.

The pad in this bibshort lives up to its reputation. The bib straps and the compression of the lycra was also perfect. If these areas are too tight, they tend to become uncomfortable the longer you spend on the bike. RedWhite's bibshorts had the perfect balance of compression and fit and I found them really comfortable.

I used these bibshorts on long rides, tours, races and even gravel riding. At their price point, they're very well priced. My only complain is that I wish they were available in more playful colours. I will continue to use them for the foreseeable future.
