Altura Ergofit Comp bibshorts


Price as reviewed:

This product is featured in: Bibshort test: £0 – £70.

There’s a massive amount of competition at this price point, and while Altura appears to have blown the budget on a good-quality pad, happily the rest of the shorts are up to scratch.

The thin material is both cool and comfortable, and offers great freedom of movement.

The silicone leg-grippers work well without pinching and the mesh bibs don’t cause chafing or irritation against bare skin – so they’re a good summer choice for those who prefer to go without a baselayer.

Sizing is refreshingly British too, so your usual casual clothing sizes should tally up.


The biggest problem for Altura is the competition at this price point - it's fierce.
