Sportful Bodyfit Pro W bib shorts review

The Sportful Bodyfit Pro W bib shorts get fresh colours and a new mesh bib upper. They've performed well with a great women's specific race fit

Cycling Weekly Verdict

With several design changes since we last saw the Sportful Bodyfit Pro W bib shorts it’s impressive to discover that these, in the main, enhance the fit and form of the shorts. The re-work of the bib element does make manufacturing sense but doesn’t hinder the performance of the shorts. Doing away with the bespoke lazer cut upper for a generic Y-design mesh version feels like a slight downgrade, though. Over all I still really rate them, and they remain in my pick of top kit, especially for the price.

Reasons to buy
  • +

    Women's specific aero/race fit

  • +

    Raw cut legs

  • +

    Excellent chamois

Reasons to avoid
  • -

    Tricky to colour match (unless purchasing corresponding Sportful Bodyfit Pro W jersey)

  • -

    Slight downgrade on bib element.

It’s been a couple of years since I last saw the Sportful Bodyfit Pro W bib shorts, when I rated them as one of the best products I had ever had the pleasure of testing. A few design changes means I was keen to pull on a new pair to see if they still tick my ultimate bib short tick boxes.
