Giro Ride Bib Shorts review
We test Giro's top-end Ride Bib Shorts- high quality but with a substantial price tag
A classic looking pair of bib shorts with nice a relaxed fit- but they a high price tag.
There are bib shorts with a more supportive fit
Although good, grippers could be better
The brand from Santa Cruz, California is primarily known for its cycling helmets, however these impressive bib shorts show that Giro definitely knows how to make top quality clothing.
With long legs and being all black, save for minimal white decals and reflector stripes, these shorts will appeal to any rider who likes an understated and classic appearance.
November's Tech of the month
After several rides I can confirm there is a lot to like. The distinct sections of the insert gave suitable support under the sit-bones when in an upright position and equally when riding on the drops. Also, if you are prone to getting hot the fully netted braces should provide adequate ventilation.
>>> Pro teams wear protective shorts
These shorts have a relatively relaxed feel. If you prefer a tight supportive fit and want the legs to be held in place securely, there are more appropriate shorts available.
The greatest compliment I can give the Giro Ride Bib Shorts is that they are unspectacular. To clarify, they quietly go about their business of providing comfort and support, before you know it you’ve completed a three hour ride.
