Description

Swedish form and function.

The Swedes at POC understand clean aesthetics and highly-functioning cycling clothing. It prefers to let the technical aspects of its attire do the talking while injecting just enough stylish elements to keep things fresh. If you have plans for racking up some big miles this season and are in the markets for some new bibs that don't require a small loan, please allow us to direct you to POC's Essential Road Bib Short.

It constructs the Essentials with stretchy and compressive fabrics that help support muscles without excessive constriction. This helps improve circulation and recovery so you'll have more matches to burn when racing your buddies up the canyons. The fit has a next-to-skin feel and, thanks to the full flatlock seams, reduces friction and lets the bibs conform to your every movement while in the saddle.

For the leg openings, 4.5 cm elasticated leg hems offer a secure fit so you don't have to tug the ends back into place, keeping your tan lines razor sharp. Highly breathable mesh upper and suspenders comfortably keep your torso supported without overheating. Chamois duties are handled by a silicone-based VPDs insert for next level comfort. The silicone inserts are strategically placed to quell road noise and saddle pressure, while the material around the insert is optimized to increase airflow and reduced chafing. POC finishes off the bibs with a rear mesh pocket for small items and reflective tabs on the rear that improve rider visibility and safety.

  • Comfortable bibs for high-mileage efforts

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I have these and like them. The full POC description is "Essential Road VPDS Bib Shorts" - VPDS is an acronym for some safety thing. There are a couple of small reflective tags in the back. Anyhow, these do NOT have silicone grippers. The material at the bottom of the Lycra shorts is relatively tight and the material below that is thin and stretchy. they are comfortable and i have had no issues with them riding up. I'm 6'3", narrow-ish athletic build, and a bit leggy. I got XLs and they fit fine. The bottom of shorts are 4.5" above my knee and - though the bib straps are tight when I'm standing up, they disappear when I'm in the saddle.
