You read that right – bib shorts for mountain bikers. Here’s why: bib shorts are awesome. They don’t pinch your stomach, they support more of your body, and they’re super comfortable. A lot of people we talked to were actually wearing road bibs under their mountain bike baggies so we built a dedicated mountain bike bib short. Breathable merino wool mesh fabric will keep you dry and comfortable, even on the most adventurous rides. We’re bucking the trend of price-point driven liner shorts that offer minimal padding and support, so our chamois are mountain bike specific with ventilation perforations and shock absorbing inserts. The front opening on the bib is lowered – with baggies over top there’s no reason for modesty and it makes life easier when nature calls. Finally, there’s pockets on the back – not a roadie race-radio pocket but actual pockets that fit a tube, CO2, tool, and some food in case you want to skip the hydration pack on a shorter ride but still need the essentials.
