Robert is wearing The BIB K.O.M.
I have been wearing the KOM bib for about a year a half. I live in Folsom, California which offers a wide variety of riding terrain (a stage of Tour of California comes through this town/area). As I have noted in previous reviews, the KOM is my 'go to' bib whenever I do a long ride in the back hills.
I did a week long ride of the Dolomites and wore my KOMs to tackle the Mortirolo and Passo Gavia as I knew the day and climbing was going to be challenging, especially since these were back-to-back climbs. I wasn't disappointed in my choice; while the day was long in saddle, I didn't experience any dreaded saddles sores or other typical rider pain.
Bottom line : save your money and buy the KOMs - your butt will thank you after a long day in the saddle.
