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

 Without even trying these on, the quality was evident.

Agreeably, the good looks were matched by a comfy fit. The Course Race are designed for comfort as well as aerodynamics, which explains their distinct lack of seams.

Inside, a 5 Motion Chamois fits snugly and achieves a supreme level of comfort for long spells in the saddle.


Two different gauges of mesh have been used on the straps; at the bottom, there's Power Mesh for comfort, while the top features Carbon X-Mesh for its anti-static quality.
