The Mondo Evo Bib Shorts are some of the most technical pieces of apparel offered by Louis Garneau. Mondo Evos incorporate three high-tech fabrics to pull the greatest possible performance from each component of the bib short. You get all the usual features: ten-panel ergonomic construction, seamless inner thighs, a back pocket, back and bottom reflective logos, and flatlock seams. But the real story here is in the fabric selection.
Mondo Evo Bibs rely on the advanced Cell-Ion Fabric to handle fit and compression. Cell-Ion contains Celliant, the ground-breaking technology that returns reflected energy to the body to trigger increased blood flow and oxygen levels. The result is improved performance, less fatigue, and greater overall comfort. It also has the effect of providing UPF 50-rated protection from UV exposure, which is key on long summer rides where waterproof sunscreen doesn't stand a chance. Cell-Ion is made with 17% stretch material, which is significantly more than most basic knits. And it's not just any stretch material, but premium Invista Lycra, which is the key to the shorts' unlimited range of motion, exceptional return, and compressive, supportive fit that also helps reduce fatigue.
Loius Garneau used Carbon X Mesh panels on the bib and straps, where airflow is essential to performance. The textured mesh won’t stick to your back and creates a cooling zone between your skin and the fabric. This technical fabric also features Resistex carbon fiber for its antistatic properties as well to enhance controlled stretch and sun protection. The Mondo Evo Bib Shorts also incorporate wide Aero Lazer bands at the thighs to hold the hems in place without grippers. This fabric features a high spandex content to support muscles and help the short retain its shape over long periods of frequent use.
The 4Motion chamois features combines 3D preshaped wings with a deep split at the back that is bridged by vented mesh; this not only offers exceptional ventilation, but allows the pad to move with you without bunching. Large, mesh-lined perforations in the front also allow air to circulate. The multi-density, perforated memory foam is ergonomically designed with a central channel that relieves pressure on the urethra during long rides. The seamless, four-way stretch 4Motion chamois features an antibacterial carbon top sheet to control odor, and pre-molded wings to add comfort while protecting against inner-thigh chafing.
The Louis Garneau Mondo Evo Bibs feature a 11.25-inch inseam are available in Black and Black with White trim. It comes in sizes X-Small to XX-Large.
Cell-Ion and Lazer Rev fabrics improve airflow over the garment, making you that much faster when it's time to go fast
4Motion insert is highly ventilated, and features multiple densities to keep you comfortable at every stage in the ride
For best results, take measurements over your underwear.
Measure under your arms, around the fullest part of your chest.
Measure around your natural waistline, keeping the tape a bit loose.
Measure around the fullest part of your body at the top of your legs.

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
This is "BY FAR" the best and most comfortable bib I've ever owned. Rode 55 miles on them and felt like I rode 5 miles. The chamois is ridiculously comfortable for long rides. Once you wear this bib you won't want to wear another one. Since I just purchased them and only ridden twice, the 55 mile and a 30 mile ride I'll write a follow up review within a year to advise on how they hold up.
I love these. Compression is great without being restrictive, Chamois is very comfortable, and the split/vented rear of the chamois is really comfortable (I thought it was a gimmick - it's not). I use them for mtb and road,and these bibs are great for both.
I have Craft, PI elite and pro and LG Equipe bib shorts. The LG Mondo are the best by far. I have had them for over a year. They have been washed a minimum of 20 times and still holding up fine. The logo is wearing off, but the fit is still the same. I'm 5'11" and 220lbs. I like a good compression, so I bought the large size. They are pricey, so I will only buy them when there is another deal. If you can afford them, go for it.
According to the sizing chart, I should be wearing a small, but I have 2 pair of the Mondo bib shorts in Medium, and another pair LG bib shorts in Medium as well. The Medium is the perfect fit for me (5'10.5", 32" waist, 150lbs).
Wore this bib out on a few rides and man is it comfortable. It's light weight and it fits snug with minimal to no adjustments whatsoever. It almost feels like i'm wearing nothing at all except the chamois padding. My review on this bib may be biased as I have not tried any other bib shorts, but all I can say is you get what you pay for. I will update on the durability of this item once I have ran it through the washer a few times and out on a few more runs.
