Description

The tabs below are a summary of technical information about our Long-Distance Bibshorts. We have extensive writeups for each Bibshort that can be found under the “Technology” tab at the main menu of this website

RedWhite cycling bibs use Italian fabrics from MITI. The fabric used is a 220gsm matt black fabric with 20% Lycra POWER (an elastic fibre with compressive qualities) and 80% nylon.

As a result of this choice, the cycling bibshorts achieve a natural next-to-skin feel, with soft, supple and highly breathable lycra. Furthermore, the nylon based lycra provides superior anti-abrasion properties as opposed to polyester based lycra.

All RedWhite bibshort chamois, including the RACE chamois, are purpose built for long distance riding. A quick look and feel will tell you how much thicker and denser it is than the norm.

However, the thickness and densities are defined in the right areas to allow you to cycle further and longer without the dreaded onset of saddle sores. In addition for the race chamois, dimples are added to enable better heat dissipation.

Also, the chamois is constructed from Open-Cell foam of multiply densities.  The rear of the chamois is kept extremely plush to allow you to roll back onto your sit-bones – a position that’s common on long rides.

To accommodate the needs of more aggressive cyclists, the perineum area is elongated and firmed up to provide ample protection and comfort when an attacking rider goes into the drops and rolls forward onto the saddle.

A cycling bibshort requires some form of gripper to ensure it stays in position. RedWhite cycling bibs go one step further by ensuring the grippers provide the necessary grip without constricting your legs on a long ride. We call this a “Silicone Microdot Gripper“

A lycra fabric that’s overlaid with hundreds of microbeads of silicone is employed. Each dot works together to give an even and non-tacky grip on the skin, while the lycra base ensures your skin still breathes.

Getting the right fit means that the bibshort should disappear on you when you ride. No flapping excesses to remind and annoy you.

As a result, the bibs pattern was constructed to follow the curves of the lycra. The design intent was to create a mesh that hugs the body all around and remains like a skin-suit even when the user goes into the drops. Furthermore, a belly panel was added to provide further abdominal support.

Best bibs at any price

I have a leg length discrepancy that causes me to sit askew on my saddle, thus creating saddle sores on my left side. This persists despite multiple attempts to make adjustments - shims, wedges, pedal extenders, stretching and strengthening, etc. I have searched wide and far for bibs with padding that helps alleviate the excess pressure. I have spent a small fortune doing so. But it's not just the thickness of the padding - it's the padding composition, location, thickness gradation and also the type and quality of the lycra. Red/White has produced the "golden fleece" for my needs. I am 5' 10" 165-170 lbs and wear a size medium fondo bibs suit me perfectly. I just received my second pair, so now I can rotate. I noticed the new bibs seem to fit a bit tighter (a good thing) and don't seem to stretch as much, which I like. This keeps the pad in place relative to my "parts" - minimal movement is essential. The stealth look is very attractive as well. You could easily pay 2-3 times as much for Rapha, Assos and other so-called "premium" brands and still not get the comfort and performance that Red/White provides. I'm sold on this product! PS - would love to see you branch out into bib knickers, tights and winter weight bibs so I can enjoy the Red/White experience year-round here in Oregon!

Welcome back Jay! We haven't made any changes to our bibshorts since you last bought them, but the tight feeling you're experiencing is due to it being a fresh pair (your last pair is almost 2 years old). Lycra always stretches out with time as the base ingredient (rubber), experiences mechanical creep. I'm currently wearing bibshorts that are 4 years old that have stretched out to a very nice comfy point (where they stabilise and stop stretching) and I actually don't like getting a fresh pair which feels snug and new! Really glad you're enjoying them and thanks so much for returning to us. About the winter weight stuff, it's an idea that we've been working on, but don't have a firm release date yet due to unpredictable winters and climate change which is making it very hard to coordinate a release for.

Great chamois. High quality product.

I did a lot of research before purchasing my bibs. Read many reviews on line and spoke with Yuva before my purchase. With the information I gave him we both agreed an XL bib would be the correct size. Unfortunately my beer gut is bigger than I thought and the XL is a little too snug for me. It's not their fault so no point deduction on the company or bib. I just need to drop from 200lb to about 195lb for the bibs to be comfortable. Great customer service and fast shipping. 5 stars on both.

Hi Chris, we have a size XXL in the works ;) Why don't you shoot me an email and we'll see if I can exchange one for you when it lands. Just keep that size XL in it's 'as-new' condition and you can easily exchange it for a larger size.

My husband regularly rides 50+ miles, and his RedWhite bib is the most comfortable one he has worn--no chafing or soreness.
