Santini 365 BCool bibshorts


Price as reviewed:

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

Santini’s range-topping bibshorts are squarely aimed at summer use, as their name suggests.

The clever use of modern materials, from the heavily perforated bib to ultra-thin side-panel, makes the BCool light and airy without feeling flimsy.

There’s certainly no problem with compression or fit. The Italian firm is nothing if not innovative in its chamois-designing; the MIG3 pad boasts too many features to list.


Trust me when I say it's super-comfy and wicks away sweat brilliantly. Sizing is on a par with most Italian shorts, though the straps tend to need shortening.
