Thus far I've spent approximately 30 hours in them (I rotate several pairs).
The current version has improved on one of the only flaws of the previous bibs; The leg gripper. The newer version is grippier and I suspect will last longer. A fair comparison to these bibs would be the Rapha Core, which are $6 cheaper. Unfortunately I haven't tried them so can't give an honest opinion. Perhaps others might. Nevertheless at $140 they're a lot less expensive than other bibs. And I think they are priced fairly.
I ride ~15 hours a week. Last year I went through four pairs of RW bibs, that's 5-6 rides a week, washing on delicate cycle and air drying. Some rough math would suggest each pair of bibs lasts 150-180 hours of ride time.
The lycra holds up very well (the old gripper did not). The chamois compresses with time, which is to be expected. The first thing to go is the chamois stitching. And in my experience it goes early. To the point where with this round of bibs I expect to take them to a seamstress at first sign of wear. This is an issue I've shared with Yuva, and I know his working on a solution. The only other observation I have is the red dye in the chamois will run, for a long time, I'm talking a dozen washes in and the water will still be tinged with red. In fact I was surprised and how much the old pairs had faded when compared to the new. It's cosmetic, nobody sees it, just keep your white socks away.
In summary, I'm invested just as much in Yuva as I am his bibs. He's a good, honest, hard working man who makes a great product. He deserves our business. Are the bibs perfect? No. But they're also not $300. And when you ride as much as I do I'm not interested in investing $1200 a year in bibs. Highly recommend.
* 6' (183cm), 160lbs (73kg). I was fitted with the medium but prefer the large. The extra length in the shoulder straps gives me some more breathing room.
** Seeing this is the new (and improved) version I think it would be more accurate to exclude reviews from the older version. This is, after all a different product.
Thank you for the very kind and detailed review Aussie Rider :)
Very helpful on the bibs size recommendation and model selection. Very comfortable on my 79km ride with it. No abrasion too. Recommended and will get the cargo bibs next
We are all different and require different things from out shorts. My sit bones are quite boney and am often sore with any other bike short I’ve tried in my 30 years of cycling. These have transformed my time in the saddle. I’m able to do as long of a ride as I want with no issue. My rides vary from one hour to 6, close to home. I don’t feel sunk in to the padding which I was afraid of. The suspenders also sit on my body perfectly and keep their shape. They have enough stretch to pull down for a pee. The are stylish and the ribbing at the thigh hasn’t stretched out (a lot of other shorts have done that eventually 👎).
If you’re on the fence, try em. I paired these with three other companies that promised the same and was not a fan. These are incredibly well thought out.
At the end of last summer I took a digger and put a couple small holes on the side of the leg. I’ll be retiring those to go under my mtn bike shorts. Bought a second pair for road cycling only.
I got my first serious road bike back in August of 2020 and didn't know much about proper clothing like bibs and jerseys. Finally got serious about it in late 2021 finishing with 5k miles with cheap bibs. Went insane in 2022 cycling nearly 15k miles and riding 100 imperial centuries. Still with cheap bibs. The ends of rides were usually not too pleasant on my rear whether riding in or outdoors but I dealt with it. At the end of 2022 I started doing a bit of research and came across RedWhite bibs. And seeing as they're made for distance rides they're just what I needed for my many 100+ mile rides. I got my first pair at the beginning of the year and immediately put them to work riding 31 so far 100+ mile rides as of now. The ends of my rides are much nicer and my rear end is much happier. Way less pain and sores are nearly a thing of the past. My first few rides I thought that they were a bit too tight. Come to realize that's how bibs should fit and my other cheap bibs were probably too big. The only current problem I have is I only have one pair which means I'm doing wash quite often with all of the rides I'm doing and noth wanting to wear anything else. My next pair will likely be the cargo bibs for when it warms up from the cold Wisconsin winter and I can start doing 100's outside again.
My go to cycling bibs. Great product and excellent customer service. Thanks Yuva
A friend and fellow randonneur of mine recommended these bib shorts to replace my aging Assos Bib Shorts with an exorbitant price tag.
These bib shorts from Red White Apparel are a near perfect replacement offering similar function at a quarter or less of the price. They offer a good amount of compression, are solidly built, and the pad has been comfortable when the rides get seriously long. Highly recommended.
The only thing missing from this purchase was Brandon Dooley's Affiliate Code. ^^
This is the most comfortable bibs I have ever own..... continued to get a few more and this isbthe only brands I wear now.
I purchased the RedWhite "The Bib" shorts in men's XL with the shorter inseam option. I am really happy with the purchase. Everything I write here is my opinion based on my experience and body type. Shorts are like underwear, and everyone will likely have a different experience.
The chamois are really quite nice. I wanted a quality bib short that I could use particularly for longer indoor riding sessions during the winter months, but something that would perform well outdoors too. I haven't use them outside yet because the weather has not been cooperative this year. However, I've put them through their paces indoors and have been very happy with them. I can ride for much longer periods of time than I used to without significant discomfort on my sit bones, thanks to nice padding in the chamois.
I recommend making use of the Sizing Helpdesk when purchasing your shorts. The shorts run small, at least by United States standards, so I would not have ordered the right size on my own. I ended up being two sizes larger than I would have used in the states, where I am a Medium in everything. The first set of shorts came in too small, but Yuva helped me resolve this with a replacement pair. The RedWhite customer service is almost unmatched. For that reason alone, I will likely purchase again.
What I like...
As I said, the chamois are amazing. The padding makes my ride so much more enjoyable. Not only is the padding great, but the design at the front of the chamois is incredibly helpful for protecting the man parts. I've had too many chamois in the past that tended to bounce my manhood around much more than I would like, which occasionally led to some rather uncomfortable rides. These chamois are not gimmicks, they really work. I also like the breathability of the shorts overall. They allow a lot of air flow through, even on indoor rides. Lastly the stitching seems very high quality.
What I don't like...
As I mentioned, they are still not a perfect fit for me. I concede I may never find a perfect bike short because of my body type, but these are close to it. I'm not a fan of the rubberized "RW" logo on the leg of the shorts. It's not uncomfortable, but it just seems awkward to have a hard rubber logo on otherwise soft shorts. Also, the flexible cuff is a bit scratchy to me, as are the bib straps over long periods of time. It's not terrible, but it could be more comfortable. Lastly, even though I'm a fan of the chamois overall, they do tend to give me a bit of a wedgie when walking around in them or during some out of the saddle efforts. But, I can get over that based on how much I like the chamois otherwise.
And the quality, the fit and knowing it will be right is the reason. Great product and love the revised look too.
I didn’t have experience with premium apparel and it looks and dress very well.
It is really like it was described.
For me who lives in Brazil, having a free shipping is really good.
Gonna by one more soon.
Really happy you like them :)
