Description

These bibs aren't called Optima for nothing.

The Men's Optima Bib Bike Shorts feature Descente's new Micro-Fuse chamois, a smaller, race-oriented insert thermo-welded to the shorts so as to do away with stitching. Smaller means less bulk and no diaper feel, and no stitching means reduced friction in that sensitive and important body area. Descente's top-notch Optimas now have Resistex side panels and leg openings—this carbon-infused fabric has anti-static properties and compresses your muscles to improve circulation and reduce fatigue. Plus, Resistex works as a more comfortable alternative to gripper at the leg openings. Put your MP3 in the back pocket, and go ride.

High Quality

These are my first set of bib shorts and I was hesitant to make the switch. Glad I did. Comfortable material, good compression and a great chamois that is low profile but keeps me comfy. I had a little shoulder soreness on thew first few rides because the way the bib straps have support seams along their edges and need to stretch a little before the pressure is distributed all throughout.

Also has a great built-in ipod pocket on the back so you don't have to worry about it banging around in your jersey pocket if you like to stand up and pound hard. All in all great shorts. Would recommend for any serious road rider.

sooo cooomfy

This was only my second pair of bibs - the first set strangled the boys - but I'm already sold on bibs and would pick them over shorts any time. Back to the Optimas: great fit, incredibly comfortable, especially in the all important shoulders to plumbing area... I'm 6'2" w/ 32" inseam and the large worked out perfectly for me. The legs feel great, especially without that grip tape stuff. Plus I got a screaming deal on chainlove/bonktown. YOU SHOULD BUY THESE!

Fantastic

These shorts were enough to make Descente my new go-to brand for clothing. I like them so much that not only did I buy a second pair, but I don't want to wear any of my other shorts. If someone gave me a big bundle of money to buy bike stuff, the first thing I would get would be several more pairs of these shorts.

Yes

These really are the best fitting and comfortable bibs I've ever had. The price varies from place to place. I couldn't be happier.
