Zero RH + O-Key Bib Short - Men's $111.95
More bang for your buck.
Cycling is an expensive addiction. When you start, you tell yourself you'll buy a bike and you're done. Wrong. There are all kinds of things you can spend your money on. Apparel can be one of the largest expenditures, and not everyone can afford to drop two hundred dollars on a training bib short. Zero RH+ hears you and answers with the O-Key Bib Short. While the price is reasonable, Zero RH+ was still able to use some of its finest materials to build the O-Key.
The O-Key Bib Short is made with Zero RH+'s Firedry fabric. This moisture-wicking breathable fabric keeps you dry and
comfortable during hot summer rides. Firedry is the second lightest of the Firedry series of fabrics and is designed specifically for hot-weather riding. This four-way stretch material is
traditional fabrics, is abrasion- and wear-resistant, and provides exceptional aerodynamics.
The O-Key Bib Short comes with Zero RH+'s Saturn chamois. This hand-sewn pad provides shock-absorbing cushion to reduce fatigue and numbness over the course of a three- to four-hour ride. The Saturn's moisture management keeps you dry and comfortable when you most need to be. The gender-specific Saturn is made from high-density foam with a low compression coefficient that ensures effectiveness after hundreds of miles in the saddle.
The bib portion of the O-Key Bib Short is made using a technique of
preformed anatomic construction. This provides a comfortable, natural
fit, especially in the riding position. The mesh braces
force cooling air to pass through the bib to keep you cool and further
speed sweat evaporation. Ultra-flat seams are used throughout to reduce chafing and irritation.
- How to Measure:
- For best results, take measurements over your underwear.
- Measure under your arms, around the fullest part of your chest.
- Natural Waist:
- 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.
- Using pants that fit well, measure the crotch seam to the bottom of the leg.
What community has to say
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Normally I go medium (33'' waist) but with some cycling stuff I size up to large. Glad I did with these, they fit great.
Chamois feels pretty comfy and they fit nice and snug, and the suspender part sits nice on the shoulders. Graphics are okay and they silver stuff in the picture is reflective. 4 out of 5 based on a comparison to the best bibs I have worn (Pearl Izumi)
