    Based on our Pro Team Bib Shorts II, these form part of a special limited collection made in honour of US champion and Olympic medallist, Nelson Vails, nicknamed The Cheetah.

    Watch Nelson Vails racing the ‘84 Los Angeles Olympics and you’ll soon see why. Vails’ predatory power – bred in the concrete jungle as a bike messenger, where he never failed to deliver – saw him scoop silver, resplendent in red, white and blue. This collection recalls Vails’ riding and racing roots, featuring the green and yellow of his first team.

    Designed for training and racing, the Pro Team Bib Shorts II are incredibly comfortable thanks to a size specific, dual-density chamois pad that provides support and comfort during the longest races and the toughest efforts. The thigh gripper is printed directly onto the fabric for a low profile finish that supports your legs with fewer seams. Made with a lightweight, extremely breathable fabric, the uppers give superb stretch and support in a colour that contrasts the matching jersey.
