Zero RH + Power Stretch Bib Short - Men's $168.75
Why didn't WE think of that?
The folks at Zero RH+ don't look to anyone else's design for solutions to complicated problems with comfort in cycling apparel. They start from the beginning and work out their own solution. The Power Stretch Bib Short is a perfect example of this approach in action.
The big story here is the graduated tension inserts. These appliques have variable tension to provide different levels of support to the primary muscle mass. This support reduces shock and vibration to reduce fatigue and speed recovery.
The Power Stretch Bib Short is made with Zero RH+'s Firedry Gold 100 fabric. This moisture-wicking breathable fabric keeps you dry and comfortable during hot summer rides. Firedry is offered in four different weights–Gold 100 being the lightest for exceptional breathability and moisture management. This four-way stretch material is lighter than
traditional fabrics. It's moisture-wicking and breathable to keep you
dry and comfortable in the harshest weather conditions. It's also
abrasion- and wear-resistant, and provides exceptional aerodynamics.
The Power Stretch Bib Bib Short comes with Zero RH+'s Uranus chamois. This hand-sewn pad provides shock-absorbing cushion to reduce fatigue and numbness over the course of the ride. The Dryskin's exceptional moisture management keeps you dry and comfortable when you most need to be. The gender-specific Uranus pad 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 Power Stretch Bib Short is made using a technique of
preformed anatomic construction. This provides a comfortable, natural
fit, especially in the crouched pedal position. The mesh braces
force cooling air to pass through the bib to keep you cool and further
speed sweat evaporation. Ultra-flat seams were used throughout to reduce chafing and irritation.
The Zero RH+ Power Stretch Bib comes in sizes Small through 3X-Large and is available in the colors Black or Black/white.
- 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
Really nice, a little tight
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I picked these up about a month ago and ended up getting a size bigger. I am 6'3" 190lbs and the Large just didn't cut it for me. The bibs pulled down on my shoulders too much for my liking.
After I got the sizing right though, I have come to love these bibs. Great support and breathability, and best of all the padding protects my nether-region!
As far as bibs go, this is one of the more comfortable bibs I have worn, no points of irritation, I recommend this to fellow cyclists!
