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.

パッドは薄い、だが最高のグリッパーを持つ

初めてのRedwhiteのbib。174cm62kgでSサイズ購入。
THE RACEの名の通りパッドは薄い。合うわけではないサドルをビブで誤魔化しながら
使う自分にとって80km程が痛みを感じるか感じないかの境目になる
パッドはそんな評価になってしまったが、一番評価できるのは太もものグリッパーである
締め付けを感じないがずれることがない
これだけの理由で多少痛くなろうとも履きたくさせてくれるbibである

The Race Bib

Bibs with thick thick pads don't work for me cos they end up giving me hotspots and making me uncomfortable. So when I saw a bib from RW with a molded pad, firm where it needs to be and unobstructed in others, yet designed for distance, I was intrigued and bought one.

Several rides later, I can say that it keeps me comfortable even for long rides of up to 120km. Absolutely no hot spots or rubbing from seams, whether on the hoods or drops. The quality is what you expect from a top end bib and absolutely no complaints. I expect it to hold up well for a long time to come!

The Race - Great bib shorts

I bought these for long rides based on the reviews. I have tried many different bibs over the years, and these are by far the best. At first I thought I had purchased the wrong size (I'm in between small and medium). However after I start riding I don't even notice the bibs. Lat weekend I completed my first 200km Audax and the bibs were great. No pain from the saddle, no chafing, very comfortable bibs.

I would recommend these for anyone looking for bibs for long rides.

Congrats on your 1st 200km Robert! It's quite a milestone and we hope it is the start to many more. If you have any STRAVA data or pictures from that ride, do send it to us and we'll put it up on our instagram account. You can email them in --> yuva@redwhite.co

The Stealth Bib Shorts

So the main point of difference is the lycra material which seems softer and more comfortable with no issues with seams. I also like the wide leg grippers. I haven't done a long ride on the chamois yet but have had no issues on my 80-90km rides.

Excellent, New favorite in my collection!

Have tried many bibshorts in the last years, many good ones among then (castelli, assos, vermarc, etc and all top range). After trying the RedWhite bibs they have become my go-to choice for any and all rides. Will definitely order more (and for my girlfriend too!)!
