    Explore Cargo Bibs And Technical T-Shirt

    Made for pushing the limits of endurance, the Explore collection incorporates technical innovations that push the boundaries of design. The Cargo Bib Shorts and Technical T-Shirt form a unique combination that is quickly becoming a uniform for the most adventurous riders.

    In January, while everyone else in Adelaide was in hot pursuit of the pros, we dispatched four of our local wear testers into the surrounding hills for two days of riding on remote roads, in record-breaking temperatures of over 40°C.

    Out here, stores are few and far between, shelter from the sun is scarce and the roads are unsealed, uneven, and in this weather, extremely dusty. To conquer the conditions, all four of our riders wore the Cargo Bib Shorts and Explore Technical T-Shirt. The unique pocket configuration on the bibs kept riding rations close to hand while the breathability and UV-protection of the Technical T-Shirt, with a little zinc over the nose in some cases, ensured our quartet stayed cool despite the heat.

    “The Cargo Bibs provide next level comfort, dampening vibration on uneven road surfaces and drying quickly in time for the next day’s ride.”

    The most adept adventurers are those who can adapt to their environment. From stormy Scottish sea lochs to the pampas of Patagonia, the Cargo Bibs have been tested in all weathers. Made of a lightweight, water-resistant material they provide weather protection without compromising breathability while expanding mesh pockets on both legs and the back carry everything you would usually keep in your jersey.

    New for this season, the Women’s Cargo Bib Shorts incorporates a completely redesigned Explore chamois pad which, despite being our most supportive pad ever, dries rapidly in time for the next day’s ride.

    "I wore the Cargo Bibs under the Tech T, having the choice to wear a t-shirt feels like you're cheating the system."

    – Pat Drapac, former professional and wear tester


    Wear whatever

    Two pockets on the legs and two on the lower back of the Cargo Bibs allow far more versatility in dressing for exploration.

    Shake the storm

    Our proprietary Shadow fabric sheds water in all but the most concerted downpours and is extremely hard-wearing, while remaining breathable in the heat.

    Go long

    Fast-drying fabrics and a perforated chamois pad mean the bibs will always be ready for your next ride.


    On all day cross-country adventures or multi-day cycling trips, there are times you'd rather not wear a jersey. For those moments, there’s the Technical T-Shirt, offering an alternative approach to dressing for your next ride. Made from a lightweight fabric that wicks sweat away from the body and promotes airflow, you’ll stay cool and dry even when working hard in the saddle. Hidden reflective trims also help you stay visible on the bike.

    "No matter what material your cycling jersey is made from, there’s no way it’ll feel as good as a weightless, pocketless t-shirt."

    Cool breeze

    Loose fit creates cooling airflow to keep you more comfortable in the heat.

    Stay seen

    Hi-vis and reflective dotted bands make you visible in low light.
