GORE Wear C5 Men's Cycling Bib Shorts
The C5 bib shorts are Gore’s mid-range option, boasting breathable and fast wicking fabrics and a pressure relieving chamois – without the premium price tag of the more exclusive C7 shorts, which we were nevertheless really impressed by when we had them on review, awarding 4.5 out of five stars.

GORE Wear C3 Men's Cycling Bib Shorts
Gore’s C3 bib shorts benefit from some of the design cues of the more expensive shorts in the range, such as wide elasticated bib straps and silicone leg grippers, but at a much more accessible price. As a result the materials aren’t quite as feathery, but still offer the support you need for a long day in the saddle.

Altura Men's Icon Bib Shorts
These may technically be a step down from the more premium Endurance bib shorts, but with wide leg grippers, elasticated bib straps and a chamois that remains comfy for rides up to four hours in length, it’s a great value set of everyday shorts. You can read our full review here.

Castelli Free Aero Race 4 Limited Edition Bib Short
We were impressed by these shorts when we had them on review, finding the leg grippers excellent in terms of fit and the chamois good for long distance rides. Of course, we weren’t able to quantify the extent of the aero gains that the dimpled fabric is supposed to impart, but as it didn’t have any negative impact on fit, it’s certainly a nice-to-have. One thing to bear in mind is that there’s no “easy-pee” system in the women’s version.

PEARL IZUMI Men's PRO Air Bib Short
These premium bib shorts from Pearl Izumi feature a coldblack fabric, which, as the name would suggest, doesn’t transmit heat the way a traditional black fabric does in sunlight 1, helping you to stay cool. The chamois is the PRO Escape 1:1 and has a floating top sheet design to maximise comfort.
