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
The BIB (Women)
The BIB (Women) is a long-distance women cycling bib designed exclusively for the female endurance cyclist. It’s identical in every way to The BIB bibshort and has been customised for the female form.
This cycling bibshort features a long-distance cycling chamois that has an identical architecture to the chamois in the popular The BIB Bibshort. The BIB (Women) also utilises the same great M.I.T.I fabrics & construction as all our men’s cycling bibshorts. RedWhite Apparel has taken these great features & technology from our men’s cycling bibshorts and put them into an exclusive custom form-factor for women.
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 women 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.

I am totally in love with this bib! it is extremely comfortable even after cycling for more than 200km. Even after multiple rides and washes, the stitchings are still intact. Highly recommended!
Very happy with these shorts. Great fit. True to size and perfect leg length. Great wide band so no sausage leg. Didn't get to do a seriously long spin yet to try out the pad probably but did around 60k and was very happy. Overall I'm very happy with these shorts and would recommend to friends
I have been waiting for the women bib for a long while and after using it for cycling, it is worth the wait. It fits well on me. The fabric is soft and chamois sit well on the seat and comfortable. Good buy
I haven't had a chance to test the Bib (women) more than 75km. But from what I have experienced so far the Bib has been one of my favourite choice no matter short or long ride.
The soft fabric was the first impression when I wore them on for the first time and after a while in it on the road the stretch-but-stay-in-place of textile gave a real comfy feeling.
In short, it's worth paying for!
These bib shorts are now my favourites. The lycra is soft and the chamois is super comfortable. You really don't feel like you are wearing bib shorts! I will be purchasing again.
