Recently got into an accident and honestly i would say it would have been alot worst it werent for these pair of bibs i got away with just a slight scrape after sliding for a good 5 m on the tarmac. And the crash replacement policy is definitely something that made me feel alot better knowing i dont have to splurge another huge sum to get a replacement bibs
I've tried a number of long range shorts with pockets and I always found that felt too heavy or too tights. Not these shorts. You can't even tell the pockets are there. Bonus points for the middle pocket on the back. Put some ice in there during a really tough 39C+ ride I was on 2 weeks ago and it saved me!
Love these shorts - they are very well made (like all R+W products) but much lighter and perfect for that 1-2 hour rip. Will probably get a few more pairs for my weekday after work riding needs.
At least with my own money.
Seriously, quality is top notch and with Yuva consulting with the sizing, it's love at first ride.
So much so, I've already done four centuries on them in a month's time span. (For reference I've only done 4 last year)
They're THAT GOOD. If you completely forget about them on a century ride, that's a great sign of a comfortable bib.
Moreover, there aren't any loud or obnoxious branding anywhere.
Finally, Yuva's very responsive and detail oriented. Offers top notch service and is obvious how much he cares about not just his product, but the full and complete satisfaction of the end user.
It's a MUST BUY
Nice compression, nice knicker like length for sun protection, nice pad, good fit, great for 3 seasons and for summer in Texas w lots UV. Thumbs up.
I recently received my latest edition of the RedWhite bib shorts and am already a big fan. I've been using RedWhite apparel for a few years now, but these latest bib shorts are the best so far. They are a firm fit but super-comfortable and don't move around while you're riding, even when it's hot and sweaty. Although not the cheapest on the market, they are great quality, and are my go-to choice of wear when riding for 2 hours or longer. Highly recommended.
Man, this bib really makes my ride so comfortable that I am still very very wowed and impressed by it. My first ride with this bib was a 180km ride into Malaysia. Comparing to my other bibs, this is really wonderfully to sit and wear on. It feels like it sticks on to my skin as one, no loose and not so tight. A superb buy, no regrets!!:)
Very pleased with the purchase of the The Bib Men's shorts. The padding for the backside gives great comfort for longer rides. I am enjoying using the Bib men's shorts for this reason as it has made riding so much more pleasant and free from chaffing.
The shorter inseam is perfect. They feel like your not wearing anything once you start riding. I ride red white apparel on every ride not just my long ones. I have been using RW sense 2014 and haven't bought another brand. Attention to detail and quality are the best in the business.
Thank you for the very kind words David, and for being a customer since day 1 :)
So ive bought another pair of bib shorts this time round the 3/4 pair. Equally well made and comfortable. No complaints on its quality. Mainly i bought it to help against the sun and i would say it does a really really good job. Doesnt feel hot in the sun neither does it trap moisture after youre drench in the rain it dries up relatively quickly with the win and sun. Especially for cycling in singapore and malaysia when the weather is fickle . Grade A +++ product. Yuva again definitely provides out of this world customer service and support would definitely deal with again. 👍👍👍👍👍
In addition to previous review, I must say that the customer service Yuva provides is unmatched!! The quality and customer service makes this company unbeatable.
5'10" 178cm 186lbs (84kg) I have now been on multiple rides with "the entry bib short" from Red White. I love these, my rides in them average around 1 hour and 30 minutes and they are great for that length. I wore them and rode a 100k ride lasting just less than 4 hours and at that point they were still great, but it was definitely pushing the boundaries in my opinion. I love these and would definitely recommend them to anyone. I have not yet been on a ride with "the stealth bib short", but if the quality is as good as it is for "the entry bib short" Im sure I will love them too.
Thank you so much for the kind words Ryan. For anyone reading this review : Please note that Ryan is wearing size XL in both The BIB & The Entry Bibshort.
The product is well made and fits snug. I have now worn them on multiple 5-6 hour rides on both single track, fire roads and technical gravity trails and am very happy with them. I just ordered my second pair and will be heading off to ride Cape Epic in them with every confidence I will be comfortable. They look good too. The communication and speed in which they were sent to me was also fantastic.
I've only started cycling 2-3mths ago, tried ASSOS and s-phere bibs but none was close to as comfortable & fitting as the redwhite bibs.
Just placed my 2nd order w Yuva and i'm excited to try the new size he recommended !
Thanks once again Yuva!!!!
This is my first of 2 red white bibs. I’ve only ever tried Assos, Decathlon and Blacksheep bibs. In comparison this red white bib provides comfort (especially over my thighs) extremely well and the material provides a cooling effect while riding which feels fantastic especially on humid hot weather which commonly happens in Singapore.
The sizing matches me better as well as the waist and thigh ratio definitely fits me better than my previous bibs. The lining on the back, being a full piece, feels way more comfortable than the split ones from other companies. More importantly, the company provides excellent customer service and definitely gives professional advice on what would fit you best as compared to other retailers who may not be able to give that perspective.
5 stars all around!
Oh another plus point: the cost!!!! Extremely value for money considered the high quality of the bub you receive. Do try it!
When I first got them I thought the bibs straps were very tight on my shoulders. This was the first bib shorts I ever tried and was not used to them. Yuva said some people don't like the feel of the shoulder straps and can't were them. He offered me a pair with a discount but I waited a bit and After a lot of rides and a few washes the bib shorts are very comfortable. They fit perfectly and they are well made. Thanks for the sizing desk that recommended a size smaller than I ordered. Would recommend them.
Hi Brad, really happy you persisted with them and it paid off. Bibs are a hit or miss with new riders, but I think they are superior to shorts since you don't have something gripping your waist.
I really like these winter bibs- the comfort in the padding is exceptional, and they manage to keep you warm while not being too bulky- the lining is lightweight but very effective.
I usually ride 100 + miles a week (weather permitting) and these bibs seem like they can keep up. Customer service is unparalleled - communication was prompt and shipping was fast. I highly recommend theses bibs, and I am looking forward to getting a pair for the summer months. I am 5"7 and 165 lbs and size L fits well.
This is my 4th purchase for my bibs from RW throughout a span of 5 years. Why only 4? The quality and fit is too good for replacment! Other brands claimed alot, market hyped plenty but RW stay strong through the test of time!! It gives me the comfort, very good fitting and excellent support especially at the important zones! It holds so well and even after long rides, I feel no stress over my quads! No way am I looking out for others. This product for the WIN!
Thank you for the very kind review Daryl :)
These Bib shorts with pockets were extremely comfortable and to a large degree solved the chaffing problem that I had in the groin. The fit is very good and the shorts held in my leggings.
Very good product.
I was so happy that RedWhite created these; it is just what I have been looking for to mitigate harmful sun exposure. I go through tons of sunblock on exposed skin, and this is the perfect solution for the legs at least. I've never been happy with any of the 'leggings' from any makers, they always slip down and I spend all my training time hiking them back up. What's more, they are usually in white, so they get really ratty looking after a short time.
I've tested these now under various conditions and they are totally comfortable in all but the hottest weather. Above about 32 degrees (C) they seem a bit 'warm', but anything would be, even some of the sun-shielding products that claim to be 'cooling'.. However, up to that point, they are as if riding with bare skin, and I have used these happily in 35deg sunny conditions too. I would have preferred them to be a wee bit longer - they come about 4 inches (10cm) below the knee - I'd prefer if they were mid-calf. But they stay there - the grippers are terrific and they do not ride up with pedaling. So I wear long-ish socks and then fill the remaining few inches of calf with sunscreen. The main thing is that the thighs are protected from radiation.! I am convinced that these do a much better job at sun-shielding than even the best sunscreen product can. I don't know of any other manufacturer producing something like this; most 3/4 tights are too hot to use in summer.
As for the design and manufacture, they are equal to all of RW's bibs - simply superb ! Workmanship and materials are top-notch and the chamois does its job admirably. It is the same pad that is in the normal stealth bibs and it does what it's supposed to do: moisture management. For those who are looking for 'cushioning' from the pad, it is also generous, but not in any way obtrusive. The pad may feel a bit 'ample' when first walking around, but on the bike it virtually disappears, never binds, pinches nor bunches, even on the narrowest of saddles, and even after long workouts, there is never any discomfort from the pad or the bibs in any way.
In short, I am absolutely happy with these for the purpose of sun shielding and highly recommend them to anyone looking for a longer-length bib designed for warm/hot summer cycling.
Thank you, Yuva !! N.K.
BTW, I have been happily riding with several products from RW: stealth bibs, as well as thermal shorts and the marvelous winter bib tight. All are superb. They are far superior to anything in this price range, and in most ways comparable in function to any of the 'elite' makers, without the astronomical pricing.
Thank you for the very detailed and incredibly kind and generous review :) - Yuva, Founder @ redwhite.cc
I live in Texas and so I don't often have to ride in temperatures below 50F, but I do need at least one full-length option for cold weather. I had been using some very old tights and also had a pair of thermal bib shorts from another company that I complemented with some thermal leggings. Both of these options left me feeling stiflingly hot unless it was truly frigid out.
When these RedWhite bibs arrived, I saw the thick, red fleece on the inside and thought that I'd almost never need that much warmth, but they are GREAT. I have worn them in the 30s, 40s, and even low 50s and I never felt like I needed to pull off and yank down my drawers to ventilate the nether-regions ;-) They breathe yet, somehow, also keep me warm.
I also have several pairs of the "flagship" bibs and wear RedWhites on almost all of my outdoor road rides because they are so much more comfortable than anything else I've ridden in. I can also vouch for the amazing customer service you get from Yuva, the man in charge.
Hi Lucas, the fabric I chose is rated for 32F to 60F. It's truly a remarkable material and a lot of engineering and research went into producing it by the supplier. It's got hollow yarns in the insulating layer which uses air pockets to create a light and efficient insulating layer.
These bibs are the best I found for long distance riding. Sizing it true to chart and wash great. Highly recommend them.
Well it's been a while... shifting countries, buying a house, recovering from long covid. But yesterday, to celebrate paying the deposit on the house, on the bike for 99km in the Adelaide hills. The shorts were excellent. No lingering bruises as from other brands. Attached are 3 photos with lingering chain wax and other stains: they ride a little higher on the thigh than is currently fashionable, but then I have long thighs and... fashion is not my thing. No different to my other shorts, in any case. Bravo le fabricant :-)
Thank you for this detailed review Graham :) - Yuva
Great bibs at a decent price,
Very comfortable and a great fit, have been using these shorts for the last couple of years after paying silly prices from the usual trendy Australian suppliers, these are great value and do a fantastic job.
Ive used this shorts for a few long rides now and no discomfort what so ever. Yuva is also really patient with ensuring you get the right fit. Of course price is alittle on the premium but so is the quality. This is definitely not a mainstream brand that cuts cost with cheap material and sell at a high course because of branding. Worth the buy
Thank you for the very kind words Benjamin :) - Yuva
