Howies bibshorts are made using machines that knit yarn into a continual tube, therefore eliminating any seams from the shorts.



This seamless design did lend itself to a super snug fit, while not feeling restrictive.

The Leadout have a thick elasticated band to hold the shorts in place on the leg, meaning those with larger quads would not find the shorts cutting in.
