Cycling Weekly Verdict

The halter bib design is, in my opinion, the best on the market when it comes to women’s bib shorts. This new version makes comfort and function accessible with a slightly more entry level price tag. There are a couple of brands offering shorts with higher end features: wide leg grippers and flashes of colour at a lower price, but if you want longevity and basic good performance, these are a great shout.

Reasons to buy
  • +

    Lower price point to Expert

  • +

    Excellent halter design

  • +

    Soft fabric

Reasons to avoid
  • -

    Narrow leg grippers

Giro’s halter bib shorts have been an absolute game changer in the women's cycling clothing market  - and the Chrono Sport Halter bib shorts seem to be no exception.

The halterneck design (created so you can pull the back down for a comfort break) is simple, comfortable – and seems to me like a very simple answer to the age old question of ‘how do we make bib shorts for women work?’
