Distance Bib Shorts+ 2.0 (RRP £199.99)
The Distance Bib Shorts+ 2.0 are an evolution of the popular Long Distance Bib Shorts+, and are specifically built for longer distances.
The dense knit construction offers second-skin softness, plus flawless moisture wicking, fast-drying, and stretch for optimal comfort. The bib straps have been specifically engineered to reduce seat pad movement while riding and won't dig into your shoulders, while there are male and female-specific seat pads on the men's and women's versions respectively for optimal anatomical comfort.
Reduced seams and improved silicone hem grippers add up to less friction and more comfort, all in a simple and minimal package. There's very little not to like while you munch through those miles!
