    Essential Bib Shorts

    Designed as your go-to bib shorts for all-season riding, the Essential Bib ushers in a new standard in cycling apparel, with 100% recycled yarns that, unlike other recycled fabrics, do not use any virgin material in their construction – not even the elastane.

    At the heart of the bib, a Super Moulded (SM) chamois with multiple densities of cushioning assures comfort over every mile and every saddle position, whether you’re sat up on the hoods or leant over on the drops.

    Proprietary leg hem finishing supports without squeezing thanks to stylish raw-cut hems, while a seam-less crotch area and freedom-enhancing anti-stress panel further amplify comfort.

    Throughout the bib short, a pre-shaped ergonomic cut and minimal use of seams stand ready to support every pedal stroke. Soft straps and darts of reflectivity complete the piece.

Super Moulded Chamois

An expertly calibrated cycling chamois, crafted with sophisticated support across the saddle, tuned for comfort over every mile. Super Moulded feels both supportive and substantial in the saddle, where its three-dimensional, variable-thickness mould creates an unwavering foundation of support and protection, markedly improving the contact with the rider’s skin for consistent comfort.


A proprietary crotch pattern that replicates the contact surface of the saddle to reduce pressure and elevate comfort. Our innovative pattern eliminates the traditional central seam, radically improving comfort

Raw Cut Hems

Our proprietary laser cut raw hems support without squeezing, free of uncomfortable elastic and silicon strips common in other bibs.

Anti-Stress Panel

A freedom-enhancing panel at the front of the bibs provides a roomier but no less supportive environment for the pelvic zone, a design that leads to a far more anatomic fit that better adapts to the rider’s form.
