Revolutionary bib shorts
If you are unsure of which bib shorts to choose, take a look at our new Bib Shorts Guide
The Pro Team Shadow Bib Shorts offer the ultimate in race-ready protection against changeable weather conditions. The shorts are made using a pioneering stretch-woven fabric, which is both ‘hydrophobic – rainwater rolls off it – and highly breathable. The shorts are designed to be worn when racing during days when it could be rainy, windy and sunny.
The revolutionary fabric of the Pro Team Shadow range has a DWR (durable water repellent) finish applied twice during the manufacturing process, making it hydrophobic – water simply rolls off – and yet it is stretch-woven, meaning that tiny gaps of air allow body heat out despite it compressing for an aero fit. The inner is brushed too, so the bib shorts can be worn comfortably straight onto skin.
The Pro Team Shadow range was developed to provide Team Sky’s cyclists with a three-season weather protective jersey and bib shorts. The team have been racing in them since the start of the 2015 season to great effect, especially during the Belgian Classics.
The fit and upper fabric is the same as the Pro Team Thermal Bib Shorts and there is also a reflective tab for visibility.
"Through a number of rides in disgusting weather, the Shadow kit really impressed. It keeps you dry in the rain, the fleece-backed bib short is warm enough at 2ºC, chill air is always held at bay and the pad is superb."
