Cycling Weekly Verdict

I can’t think of a pair of shorts that offers such comfort at this price point, with recycled materials to boot. Minor scruples over silicon cuffs and mesh back widths aside, these shorts are a brilliant addition to your wardrobe at a fraction of the cost of competitors.

    Good value versus competitors

Reasons to avoid
  • -

Back when I first tested Albion’s bib shorts, I couldn’t help but be impressed. It was the plucky upstart brand’s only item of clothing but I found the shorts to be a superbly comfortable, well thought out piece of kit. 

Fast forward three years and Albion now produces a short sleeve jersey, a long sleeve jersey, a set of bib tights, a host of accessories and these, the Albion ARB1 bib short, an update to the original pair.
