BodyFit Pro Bib Short
When we carve out time to be on the bike, we prefer that there are no distractions. After all, hours spent spinning are hours we treasure, so we rely on a kit like Sportful's BodyFit Pro Bib Shorts as simple solutions that preemptively solve any problems that might arise in the saddle. That's not to say the shorts aren't the result of a long, careful process of R&D; rather, all that engineering just went into making the short disappear once they're on. We'd much rather be able to ignore our short than to have them so full of "features" and "innovations" that we spend half the ride unable to ignore.
The BodyFit ethos is, as the name implies, all about the fit. Sportful makes the short from its 220g Lycra and AeroFlow Compress fabric at the legs, which stretches to fit, eliminating excess material. It's also gently compressive, so it adds a touch of confident support to the usual moisture management. The shorts are finished up top with lightweight mesh bibs and seamless leg opening with a silicone dot pattern gripper, which form a snug, non-pinching, flat seal against your skin for maximum aerodynamic efficiency. A Women's TC Pro chamois is the finishing touch. Though it won't actually hold up to endless riding, its combination of multi-density foam support and a soft microfiber cover do make a strong case for taking the long route on any given day.
