There’s quite a few boxes that your ‘favorite pair of bib shorts’ must check. The chamois has to be perfect-soft to touch, foam in all the right places, and perfect shape. And the materials must be compressive, yet still comfortable while being sized correctly. It’s been a lengthy process, but we’re happy to say that the SL Race Bib Shorts check all the right boxes. The pre-molded, triple-density foam Body Geometry Contour 3D Chamois is contoured to perfectly match the curvature of your body, all while being soft and supportive in all the right places. The other part of the comfort equation is the extremely stretchy, soft bib straps paired with a soft four-way stretch fabric. On the performance side, the same four-way stretch fabric also features plenty of compression, for long days in the saddle. The three-inch-tall silicone cuff also ensures that your bibs stay in place in a variety of conditions.
