Women’s Bib Short Guide

The key to comfortable riding is a pair of quality bib shorts, but not a pair designed for somebody else. All of our women’s bib shorts are designed for women, tested by women, and include a women’s specific chamois pad.

What to wear

 

Each pair of bib shorts in our collection is designed to meet the needs of different riders, and the demands of different terrain. Whether you’re riding riding near or far, fast or slow, browse our selection below to find the pair that suits you best.

Detachable Bib Shorts


These bibs changed everything. They took an age-old problem and solved it with a click of the clasp. A simple solution for a better ride, driven by a desire to create the perfect bibs for women. The Detachable Bibs pair a race-ready chamois and compressive fabric with a self-centering magnetic clasp for stops as speedy as they are subtle.

Chamois

Our new women’s Pro Team chamois pad uses a thin layer of high-density foam, for comfort in races and during high-intensity training rides.

Fit

Cut and shaped to wrap around the leg in an on-bike position with a minimal seam construction to prevent bunching at the hip.

Function

Designed for your fastest rides with a self-centering magnetic clasp for speedy, subtle toilet breaks.
