The 3/4 Summer Bib Tight with Pad (Men's) is based on RedWhite's popular long-distance bibshort. It uses the same fabulous long distance pad. The legs are extended and end around your mid calf.

The model shown is 6 foot 3.5 inches tall and is wearing a size L to demonstrate what the fit would be like on a tall rider. Shorter riders will have these tights end further down their calves. The length has been tailored to fit a wide range of heights well without being too short or too long on calves.

This 3/4 Summer Bib Tight is finished with a 60mm tall Silicone Macro-Dot gripper. It is designed to grip both small and large calf sizes. If you happen to have small calves, do not worry about the gripper being loose. If you happen to have large calves, you don't have to worry about the gripper being too tight. This gripper was carefully chosen and tailored to work well for a wide range of calf sizes.

Keen eyed customers would notice the rubber logo stitched on left leg. This rubber logo has been ride-tested extensively. You won't notice it while riding. It is also machine wash friendly (cold wash cycle) and durable.

          3/4 Bibs

          So ive bought another pair of bib shorts this time round the 3/4 pair. Equally well made and comfortable. No complaints on its quality. Mainly i bought it to help against the sun and i would say it does a really really good job. Doesnt feel hot in the sun neither does it trap moisture after youre drench in the rain it dries up relatively quickly with the win and sun. Especially for cycling in singapore and malaysia when the weather is fickle . Grade A +++ product. Yuva again definitely provides out of this world customer service and support would definitely deal with again. 👍👍👍👍👍

          Just what I needed !! long summer bibs against the sun

          I was so happy that RedWhite created these; it is just what I have been looking for to mitigate harmful sun exposure. I go through tons of sunblock on exposed skin, and this is the perfect solution for the legs at least. I've never been happy with any of the 'leggings' from any makers, they always slip down and I spend all my training time hiking them back up. What's more, they are usually in white, so they get really ratty looking after a short time.

          I've tested these now under various conditions and they are totally comfortable in all but the hottest weather. Above about 32 degrees (C) they seem a bit 'warm', but anything would be, even some of the sun-shielding products that claim to be 'cooling'.. However, up to that point, they are as if riding with bare skin, and I have used these happily in 35deg sunny conditions too. I would have preferred them to be a wee bit longer - they come about 4 inches (10cm) below the knee - I'd prefer if they were mid-calf. But they stay there - the grippers are terrific and they do not ride up with pedaling. So I wear long-ish socks and then fill the remaining few inches of calf with sunscreen. The main thing is that the thighs are protected from radiation.! I am convinced that these do a much better job at sun-shielding than even the best sunscreen product can. I don't know of any other manufacturer producing something like this; most 3/4 tights are too hot to use in summer.

          As for the design and manufacture, they are equal to all of RW's bibs - simply superb ! Workmanship and materials are top-notch and the chamois does its job admirably. It is the same pad that is in the normal stealth bibs and it does what it's supposed to do: moisture management. For those who are looking for 'cushioning' from the pad, it is also generous, but not in any way obtrusive. The pad may feel a bit 'ample' when first walking around, but on the bike it virtually disappears, never binds, pinches nor bunches, even on the narrowest of saddles, and even after long workouts, there is never any discomfort from the pad or the bibs in any way.

          In short, I am absolutely happy with these for the purpose of sun shielding and highly recommend them to anyone looking for a longer-length bib designed for warm/hot summer cycling.

          Thank you, Yuva !! N.K.

          BTW, I have been happily riding with several products from RW: stealth bibs, as well as thermal shorts and the marvelous winter bib tight. All are superb. They are far superior to anything in this price range, and in most ways comparable in function to any of the 'elite' makers, without the astronomical pricing.

          Thank you for the very detailed and incredibly kind and generous review :) - Yuva, Founder @ redwhite.cc

          Nice product and fast delivery

          Received this product as a crash replacement. Which is really nice offer from Yuva. Really helps overcoming the impact of a crash. It has all of the qualities of the bib and covers the knees. Have not used it as it is now too cold for a short bib. Not sure if I wil use it in slightly lower temperature for warmer knees or in summer as a higher level of UV protection. Or perhaps both.

          Fit for summer

          Because of a recent skin condition, I've needed more protection from summer sunlight than I get from bib shorts and jerseys, and I don't like to slather myself with sun cream, which does a crummy job in any case as it melts away in the heat. I bought some protective sleeves that I wear on my arms as well as a long-sleeved jersey made of a sun-resistant fabric, but my legs until now remained exposed. Now, with Red White 3/4 summer bib tights, I don't have to worry. They fit exactly like my Red White bib shorts and offer the same degree of comfort when I'm riding. My Red White bibs are my favourite shorts. I wear them in winter under my padless tights. I'm sure my Red White 3/4 bibs will become favourites, as well, but I'll have to wait till summer to prove it. It's winter at the moment in Canada, zero degrees and windy. But we'll get over it.

          Enjoying my new bibs

          Finally found them.

          Had previously worn through a couple sets of the standard bib shorts but was always wanting a below-the-knee for warm summer temp rides. Less sunscreen to apply. Randomly ended back on the site and noticed these. Ordered straight away.

          Been on a couple rides so far with them. 9/10. The only thing I'd change is another inch added at the ends, as I have a tall inseam and femur for height. (The gripper end falls about an inch and a half below the knee when riding). 5'9.5"/34" on a Small.

          Aside from that small coverage point they are great. Will be ordering again once these need replacing.

          Thanks so much!

          Pretty good

          I have used Assos Mille GTS, Q36.5 Unique, Santini Scatto, and Santic Wind bib shorts and this review will compare with those in some ways. I know the prices are different, but sometimes you can find the more expensive ones on sale and they will be at comparable prices. I was looking for summer bib shorts that can cover the whole legs for UV protection. Other big brands usually sell bib tights used in fall/winter, so I assume those will be too hot for summer. Hence, trying this RW 3/4 summer bib tights.
          The parts:
          - STRAPS: I love the very wide and elastic straps. They are very comfortable, no complaint whatsoever.
          - PANEL MATERIAL: The material feels like those used in Assos Mille GTS (maybe they are the same?). They are nice, comfy, and elastic. But, after 1 year of using that Assos, the rear panel shows significant sign of fabric stretching. Those on my rear can see my ass through the fabric; not a pretty sight for the guys behind. So, I hope RW tights can last longer. FYI, I always hand-wash bib shorts.
          - SILICONE GRIPPER: I think the silicone gripper used is also pretty much like those in Assos Mille GTS. Not the grippiest, but they don't need to be very grippy either because it is already quite tight around calves area. If you're used to only wearing bib shorts, there will be some weird sensation around back of your knees when pedaling. Not a deal breaker at all, just a different feel. Of course, bib shorts will be more comfortable in this matter.
          - STITCHING: I feel that the stitching used in RW is a little bit too much in terms of aesthetics. Compared to Assos Mille GTS & Q36.5 Unique which has invisible stitching and thus looks very clean & minimalist, RW looks rather.. crowded. Especially in the front padding area. However, they have no negative effect on performance. I like minimalist better. I'm sure RW has considerations in choosing the stitching type.
          - PADDING: I like the padding thickness. A bit meaty but not too much. However, the pad width is narrower than usual. I measured 130mm across the thickest padding area at the widest. Since I have sit-bone width of 130mm, I feel like I'm sitting on the very edge of the thickest pads; not quite ideal. The Q36.5 has around maybe almost 150mm width (very ideal for me), Assos Mille GTS is even wider. However, I really like that the pad position is very forward; riders behind will not be able to see the pad at all. Nice.

          My rides using RW tights so far have been good; they consisted of multiple 40-50km rides. There is an exposed area of skin between the socks and the bib tights, which made me think maybe a 7/8 summer bib tights or full summer bib tights would be better for complete UV protection, combined with summer long sleeved jersey. Don't want to wear those full calf length socks, thank you ;) Otherwise, I still need to apply sunscreen on those area if a ride will last past noon.

          Overall, I will say that the product is satisfactory. A good value, but not yet exceptional at USD 145.

          The bib is not much different from other brand.

          Your bib is not much different from other brand. Only your price is higher. Anyway, it’s good to try. TQ
