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.
