Cycling Weekly Verdict

The materials and construction of the Team Bib Evo bib shorts proved to be excellent, remaining comfortable for long rides in hot weather, as well as for all-out efforts in summer showers. The low bulk but high density of the chamois was also a real winner. However, other brands are making shorts to a similarly high standard, such as La Passione with its Prestige bib shorts and Endura with its Pro SL Bib Shorts. With shorts such as these as the context, it’s hard to recommend paying the premium for the Team Bib Evo shorts.
