Description

The tabs below are a summary of technical information about The Race. 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 multiple 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.

Very comfortable Bibs

I now have both the Race and Fondo Bib shorts. These are now my favorite riding kit and easily the most comfortable bike shorts I have ever ridden in. I wore the Fondo shorts on an 9 hour 200km ride with 4000 meters of climbing a month ago and had no soreness or issues.

Excellent Bibshorts

After my favourite bib shorts stopped being made I changed to RedWhite, Stealth Race. They might just be my new favourites, with really comfortable fit, nice wide grippers and excellent chamois. 5 hour rides no problem in these knicks, I highly recommend them.

Comfortable but need more rides to give better review

I have not tried a lot of other bibs but RED WHITE comes highly recommended by my cycling buddies. First ride with it and I have not found the right position for the chamois. Was a little uncomfortable when my feet starts to go numb. I have rather larger bums and thighs so may need to ride more with it to get comfortable with it. At the moment, not sure where to correctly position the chamois for optimum comfort.
Materials used are splendid and like most quality bibs in the market. The shoulder straps are thin and wide providing a comfortable support.
Will need to ride more often to give a more honest review (give me more time yo!).
