LONG-DISTANCE BIB SHORTS THAT HELP YOU RIDE FURTHER, MORE COMFORTABLY
Trusted by thousands of long-distance cyclists around the world, RedWhite Apparel's Bib Shorts are built to help you ride further in comfort.
I felt the pockets were designed to be deeper and closer to the body than other bib shorts with cargo.
it is safe to ride with an iPhone 13 in them!
I've been riding in Red White for at least five years now, I've even written about the apparel on the customer blog page, so look me up there if you want more of the story about me. This recently purchased pair was a warranty replacement after I hit an unseen divot in a freshly paved road at twilight and skidded across the tarmac. I ripped a large hole in the original shorts. This replacement pair is suiting me just fine, and combined with the right saddles on my bikes, I can go long distances with no discomfort where it counts. Here's that blog post I mentioned -- https://www.redwhite.cc/blogs/customer-stories/joel-van-kuiken-grand-rapids-michigan-usa Cheers!
I expected the Stealth Bib to be a solid product. After multiple rides in the new kit they may be the best I've owned. Ever. I've been riding for over 40 years and, aside from the first couple of years when bibs were not common, I have always preferred bibs. Stealth takes the cake! The price feels right and communication and customer service were solid. All around a great experience considering I prefer LBS purchases to support local businesses. I will be buying a second set in the next couple of weeks.
I am new into mountain biking and decided to order some entry bibs. I could no be happier. They fit great and chamois is really comfortable. Their customer service is excellent. You can spect a fast response to any question you have.
Have used these bibs on a few rides, and I really like them. Comfortable, good pad for longer rides.
Only negative is that the legs could have been longer. I'm 202cm tall and skinny/athletic, and the fit is right on, but a little short on the legs. It's not to short to use, but would really like a "long" or "tall" option.
I am a bit of an outlier in terms of shape and chamois preference. I'm post-menopausal with an "apple" figure (big belly), 66", 130#. The fit chart suggested a medium but after emailing with Yuva, I went with a large. They fit nicely though the leg cuff is a bit loose but that's because my thighs are somewhat small. I don't like a super tight fit and these are just right. The chamois also works pretty well for me. I wanted good padding on the sit bone area but not too much thickness in front because I ride with anterior tilt and the pressure can be too much. The chamois isn't perfect but it's good (unlike the Pearl Izumi's I could tolerate for only 100 feet before I turned around and changed). It seems like the chamois is getting more comfortable after several rides so either it breaks in or I'm adapting. I have a long torso and the straps are a good length and not too tight. I'd prefer shorts to bibs for the convenience factor but these are very good. Delivery was incredibly fast, too.
Done 2000 km so far with my new pair and compared to my previous pairs this is progress. No wrinkles and stays in place. Nothing to complain about and excellent personal service.
I’ve recently been pushing the time in the saddle on longer rides doing some randonneuring in preparation for long multi-day bikepacking. I was in search of a bib that could hold up. My two issues were skin breakdown and cushion for my sit bones. I had no issues with skin breakdown on the 24 hour ride (17hrs peddling over 24hrs out the door). I did use chamois cream at the start, at mile 140, then again at mile 200. The temperature was very high on the coast 90+ degrees with unusually high humidity; nothing ever dried off. The wicking ability held up incredibly well. The second point, sit bones cushion. The fit of the bib makes the thicker cushioned part of the chamois sit well beneath my sit bones to reduce the pressure over the 24 hours. In all, very happy with the bib and will certainly be adding more to my collection.
These are the most comfortable bibs i have. Currently using pactimo raptor, santini karma, exteondo orhi. For rides exceeding 3 hrs these are it. 5’ 10” 175lbs size L fits great. Customer service is directly with owner and is outstanding. Free shipping and a very reasonable price for a superb pair of bibs! I will be buying more.
Great fit with really great padding for longer rides. Pockets are great, easier to access gels than fishing around the back of your Jersey!
I bought a pair of the cargo bibs for my first long ride from Sg to Malacca. It was truly comfortable and appreciated the pockets whereby I could easily reach for my supplements and phone, even passport! Totally will recommend this for anyone who is looking for comfy and quality bib for the long distance ride! :-)
I cannot say enough about these shorts. I have tried many different brands of shorts over the years in search of all day comfort. These shorts get it right. I had the false belief that more bulky pads would be better, but could never find the right combination that worked for me. These shorts are amazing. The mad material is slightly more dense than some of the other products I have tried. As a result, after riding all day-- I am comfortable and don't feel like I am wearing through the pad. I have not had any saddle sores with these shorts and could not be happier. Thank you for making a great product! I am also very impressed with your shipping and logistics for the company. My order arrived very quickly, and I could not be happier. I recommend the cargo bib because of the additional pocket options that allow you to tuck small items into your shorts that you would otherwise be putting in a jersey pocket or bag on your bike. The cargo bibs find the right balance of additional pockets without over-doing it. Again- I could not be happier with these shorts. I'll definitely be buying more pairs in the future. Thank you!
Happy to own this bib, great fit, and the pockets are just perfect. I have used for some 80k rides, but will be using them for 100-200k rides in Africa soon. Looking forward! Thanks for the great product.
My tough guy days ended a long time ago. For the past 15 years I have had to contend with sores anywhere that my bottom touches my saddle that leave body fluids on my chamois. No more. RW bibs were the answer all along. I’m so glad i finally found you.
