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 STEALTH (Fondo)
The STEALTH (Fondo) is a cycling bibshort based on The BIB Bibshort and features the same long-distance chamois & M.I.T.I. fabrics. We’ve swapped out the iconic Red colour on the top mesh with Black and replaced the classic logos throughout the bibshort with Dark-Grey versions to create an understated and stealthy look.
The STEALTH is recommended for cyclists tackling long rides such as the :
- Transcontinental Race
- AUDAX rides
- Race Across America
- Race Across Britain
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.

I'm an endurance MTB rider. But not of the slim hipped, skinny legged variety. Having big legs finding a good fit is always hard. I'm 172cm and 84kg and a size L fits perfect (I wear a size M jersey). Half the price and twice as durable as other big name brands I have used. I now have 1 Bib, 1 Stealth Bib, and 2 Race bibs. Great product and ordering is a breeze.
I like brands that start with few products. That concentrate all of their work and knowledge in doing it better. RedWhite is one of those brands.
I ordered the Stealth Fondo Bibshorts because I usually look for confort ahead of performance. And that what this bibshorts is all about.
It۪s well made and nicles finished. Shoulder straps are wide, soft and very confortable and you won۪t notice them. Leg grippers do what their supposed to do: stay in its place and allow some breathability. The chamais has a soft touch and maintains confort after a few hours on the bike.
The bib was already great to wear but only available in black and red. With new stealth look of the bib it just fit my stealth looking bike as well.
My second pair for when the others are in the wash! Prefer the stealth colouring so happy. Very comfy and well fitting. Broad band at hen makes them much more pleasant to wear than other brands. Quality up with Assos and Rapha in my opinion. Only down side is got picked up by customs once and that۪ll add 35 to the price. Just be aware. Also changes delivery from a rapid 6 day۪s without to 4 weeks with customs input.
The fondo bib shorts are indeed excellent for long rides. I routinely ride 40 miles with approx. 3500 ft climbing. They are comfortable to the point where I don't know I'm wearing a chamois. This is after 4 months of weekly riding. The folks at redwhite are very communicative and great to deal with. Shipping is fast. Love the brand.
