De Marchi Contour Evo RX bibshorts


Price as reviewed:

This product is featured in: Bibshort test: £131 – £200.

With their superb fit, high-quality Lycra with good reflective features and a very comfortable, multi-thickness insert boasting good ‘memory’ characteristics, these were all set to be my favourite.

The only issue was that the leg length was a good inch shorter than that of all the others.


Should I see this as a good thing, softening my stark tan lines? Or should I lament that they are effecting the definition? Jury's out, but not on the quality, which is excellent.
