Took it out for its maiden ride today and did an easy 8 miles in 48 degree PNW windy weather. The fit, material and construction appear to be top notch. Planning on buying another one to rotate through them for rides.
When I first started riding as an adult, I was young and tough and shopped for the cheapest shorts l could find. Fifty years later, I look for comfy and well made bibs. Last year, I bought some bibs from RedWhite and I thought my search was over. When the new bibs came out I ordered 2 pairs. I feel that these are much superior. Stretchier more comfortable and better fitting, still built for the long haul, these are just great bibs.
I bought two pairs of these winter bibs knowing they would be top quality. I was still blown away. The new fabric is soft and stretchy and looks great. The bibs are comfortable and ride warmer. Fine at 60°, I think they will work down into the low 30’s with enough clothing worn up top.
Very comfortable and well fitting bib shorts. I'm spending 4 months riding in Africa doing the Tour D'Afrique so definitely need to quality bib shorts. They look like they'll do the job. Great service as well. Order arrived very quickly from the other side of the world.
I've worn them on a couple of 4+ hour rides and they performed very well. Great padding. I like the way the pad and fabric are fused rather than a pad that is inside of a fabric pouch. This prevents bunching and binding of the fabric that I have experienced with other products.
Pay attention to the sizing chart. I usually wear a large, but the sizing chart said I needed an XXL so that is what I purchased and they fit very well.
XXL Short Bibs
The size and fit are perfect! I went on a 6 hour ride and had no issues what so ever. A must buy.
My go to bibs for long rides (>50 miles) the most comfortable bibs I’ve ever worn. Very fast shipping. I am 66, 6’ tall and weigh 190 lbs, the XL fit great. I ride daily 40-70 miles a day.
So I wouldn't say I'm a diehard cyclist (XL), but I can say I would not still be cycling in November in The French Alps without the Winter Bibs . They've easily kept me warm enough , especially on the legs , down to 5 degrees . If anything they've shown me I need to expand my limited range of winter tops and look at overshoes . Would definitely recommend
Ever since I found Red/White Apparel bibs, they have been my go to bibs. I bought a pair of the cargo bibs earlier this year for a ride I was doing and being able to carry a few extra items was very beneficial. I bought a second pair for a bike trip I am doing early next year (2024). These bibs should be just what I need to carry what I need.
These were my 3rd set of bibs from RW. I really like the 3/4 length, the extra pockets for storage, the fleece lining, and the super comfy chamois. The fleece is warm and soft. The chamois is the best I've ever had, which is why I keep buying RW bibs. Keep it up! I have BlackBibs and Pedal Mafia bibs, and the RW stuff always is my go to for any ride. They are simply the best!
Winter weather is here now in the PNW! I have had the opportunity to test these out on 5 rides now and I am wondering why I didn’t purchase these years ago! I love them!!
I have been a customer for 2 or 3 years now and I can’t say enough about how comfortable they are on my rides. I’m a XL in RedWhites and I am a XL in other riding bibs and shorts in the past, so sizing is right on the money for me.
Every chance I get, I brag about RedWhites!!
Thanks Yuva for a great product.
Thank you for the kind review Curtis :)
This was my first pair of bibs and I can’t imagine wearing any others! The first ride I wore them was 100km (which was risky), but they were comfortable the whole time. I fell off my bike last weekend onto the road and not even a snag. Delivery was unexpectedly quick and the customer service is top notch.
Thank you for the very kind review Allison. I really appreciate you taking the time to write it. - Yuva, Founder
I am 62, stand 71.5"/181.5cm and weigh 195lbs/86kilograms. I order size LARGE based on information from the web site and experience with other bibs. The fit is great, but if I lost the 20+ extra weight I am carrying a MEDIUM might work better.
I ride 20 to 30 miles a day, six days a week with an occasional 50 or 70 mile ride thrown in. Bibs work fantastic with the best part being keeping male parts in place and comfortable. That alone makes these worth every penny!
My body has been through the wringer literally with cancer treatment which included pelvic radiotherapy. I'm a year out and doing great but bibs have been difficult for me, I have some tissue damage and my skin is fragile and breaks down easily. I'm back to long rides with a 3000km bikepacking trip coming up in a few months and skin integrity has been a major concern. These bibs work amazingly I did my first long ride with lots of elevation today and I have no pain, no chafing, no discomfort during or after. I was on the fence about mesh pockets because I have some with mesh from another brand that I've had to mend multiple times but these seem very sturdy. Had room for a well deserved post ride 🍺 even! Sizing was spot on going off the chart, I'm 6ft tall but the straps are plenty long and just overall amazingly comfortable! Thank you for these bibs 👌
I'm really happy these bibs worked well for you :)
My new and 3rd pair of Red White bib shorts are every bit as good as their predecessors. The size small is a great fit on my 168cm frame and comfort is not a problem. I first wore them on a 3 day gravel and black top tour (wash and dry each night!), wearing them for 6-7 hours each day, and comfort was never an issue.
I do miss the flashy red bib, but that aside, I'm expecting to easily have these as my favourite kicks for the next 3-4 years.
As usual, Yuva has been great to deal with. It just feels good to be buying them from someone who not only has a hands on involvement in making and selling a great product, but also has an involvement in cycling similar to most dedicated yet not necessarily elite riders.
Thanks again Yuva,
Great quality and service as usual. I have 2 pairs of the bibs in XL, these came up a little small in XL so returned them for a XXL. Great communication and a very easy process.
Used them down to 2° so far and have been very cosy. Fit is great, ankles stay in position very well. Will be getting another pair soon!
Thank you for taking the time to leave this review James :) - Yuva
I've only been buying RedWhite bibshorts for about the last 6 years. When I first tried them I was training for a 10,000m Everest, plus a Roam, for which I got the record (at the time) for the oldest person to do those. The problem I'd had was all the other shorts that I tried caused discomfort and chafing after 6-8 hours and I needed more than that. The RW shorts are comfortable for longer, great quality and very reasonably priced for what you're getting. I also like the personal way that Yuva interacts with his customers. I've used them for Everesting and the training, MTB, bike packing, gravel riding, and my longest road bike ride is 500km. Photo includes a RW jersey, which were great designs too, but now out of stock
Thank you for taking the time to leave this review Hans. The jerseys were unfortunately a money loser for RedWhite despite being quite excellent because not everyone like the colours and return rates were quite high for them because fit preferences vary so much for jerseys - more so than bibs.
This is my 3rd bib from RW, 4 if you include one for my spouse. I have used the Stealth, Entry and the regular bib. every iteration gets better and on my rides (both short and long) its RW for me. the fit is great. the protection is excellent. and the durability is a major plus point. always will recommend and absolutely love these bibs. the new grippers are just the improvement I was looking for and as always Yuva delivered. The delivery was fast and the product is top quality.
Thank you for taking the time to leave this review Ravi. Really happy you noticed the improvements I made this year :)
Do not hesitate, just get your size nail down and order them. You will not find anything in this price range or higher in my opinion. I own the Rapha cargo bibs, and these are better - more aerodynamic fit around thighs and a better rear pocket configuration (over/under). They arrived to Western United States less than five days.
Ordered these for a 100 mile self-supported desert ride. Needed all the storage I could get, and these did not disappoint. The two rear pockets are a great compliment to a jersey because they hang lower for easy
The padding is also properly trimmed in the front and a little less bunched up than my Rapha cargos. I still like the Raphas for cruising around on shorter rides, but for an all day ride, I will always reach for the red and white. The only thing I would correct is I wish there were other colored choices other than black(boring) , and that the thigh pockets were setback just to touch more to keep them more aerodynamic when stuffed with gels and other items. On a 9 hour ride, every wrinkle counts.
Bought The Bib in Apr and then decided to try the cargo version in Oct. both bibs were amazing in terms of fit, chamois and stitching. Tried Rapha and BSC but they don’t come close to the quality and value RedWhite provide. I don’t think I will ever try other bibs again. 👍👍👍
I now own 6 pairs of R&W, 2 of which I put in over 10,000 miles on. Everything including the bib cargo short and winter bibs. I wear an size small. I cant reccommend this small company enough. These are by far, the best bibs I have ever worn and I bring them on each and everyone one of my overseas biking adventures. Last year: Morocco Atlas Mountains. This year: Vietnam!
I have to give a huge thanks to Yuva for sending me two pairs of "The Bib" last minute before my big trip to Japan as I initially ordered the wrong size for myself. Yuva helped over WhatsApp to sort out my size and sent out the package immediately. Cannot express how much I appreciate the care he puts into his product and his commitment to his customers!
The bibs themselves have been amazing and held up very well. I had worn these bibs everyday for 4 weeks while touring across Japan and they performed above and beyond my expectations. When I test bibs, the critical scenario for me is how the bib performs during climbs as that is really when a lot of the weight and pressure moves through the butt into the saddle as your hands no longer take the same amount of weight as when you are on a flat round. To provide perspective, we had days with about 2km of elevation gain and these bibs kept me comfortable during these brutal rides where the gradient was an average of 6-7% through the Japanese mountian range.
One key point for buyers that I learned through my own mistake was to really consult Yuva for sizing and take the time to measure your hips/legs. Getting a size that is a little smaller, which I did the first time, really does impact the ride quality as it can potentially restrict bloodflow and cause the pad to not sit properly under your butt/pelvic bones. Please do consult Yuva as he has lots of experience in this.
I ride 250 miles/week and know right away during a ride if the bib shorts are not performing. The shorts I bought here are now my favorite of the 5 bib shorts I use. Great service and great shorts!
I wrote the new 3/4 length bibs on a 55-60F degree day, overcast and windy, in early October in the US. They were great and lived up to their billing. I had never worn 3/4 bib-shorts before and I liked them. They'll be great when it gets even colder outside and I look forward to wearing them.
Thanks to my coach and brother, he said:'buy this brand and you will never regret '.
They are confortable, for my long runs
