Altura ProGel Comp bibshorts review

Bibshort test: £0 - £70, Altura-Comp
Cycling Weekly Verdict

Compared to many of the others at this price, its compression qualities are below-par too.

Reasons to buy
  • +

    Comes with vents, silicone gripper and gel pad

Reasons to avoid
  • -

    Loose cut

  • -

    Caused irritation

These offer all the features you'd expect - vented bib, silicone grippers, gel pad and reflective logos.



They feel OK for short rides but the fit and cut is very different from Altura's Ergofit model - far baggier around the rear despite being a size smaller.

This meant the chamois moved around and caused irritation.
