For years I have been suffering in pain with a pair of Trek Criterium shorts, with only a 2 way chamois. I was hesitant to switch to a bib short and leery of the price. After seeing all the positive reviews I decided to give it a go. The chamois is absolutely perfect. Like the pamphlet says it form fits to your body as soon as you sit on the saddle. I've only taken them out of a few 20 mile rides thus far, which I would always notice perineum pain afterwards. Not with these shorts. The materials are high quality and while this garment requires extra special washing care, I suspect it will last a very long time if treated properly. My only real complaint is that I am on the shorter size of the Medium sized bib and as a result the legs are larger that my normal short size (small). As a result the leg grippers are looser than I'm used to. Aside from this the bibs fit perfect. 4.5 stars out of 5
Can anyone attest to the stiffness comparison between these and the original Maltese Falcon? I noticed these are 20 grams heavier...so I'm hoping the weight went into sole stiffness?
These shoes literally fit like a glove the first time I put them on. Extremely comfortable. Great in the mud, snow, and ice. Pair these with a set of gaiters for some speedy approaches in the spring ski season. They have the best traction of any shoe I have ever owned. Lugs will wear down fast on abrasive surfaces, but the control received is worth it. People seem to be constantly asking about the shoes and really dig the colorway. Good job backcountry.com on a great co-lab shoe.
