The ProCorsa Men's McKenzie Summit Bibshort has become my favorite. I average about a hundred and fifty miles a week. The four-way stretch material hugs the contours of my body. The fit is snug without feeling tight. They keep my private parts securely in place. Never have I felt any discomfort down there. The chamois is firm, not squishy providing better support. The shoulder straps are wide so as not to dig into your shoulders. The workmanship and material appear to be of the highest quality.
Was interested to find out if the quality, value and suitability coincided with the hype and sales blurb. This pair (?) of bib shorts is up to the task so far. As a new brand to me the attire sizing was all ether, as seems the case with any manufacturer kit, and had to return the first delivery - size medium - which I selected after considering the sizing chart. Once that was sorted am quite happy with the fit and apparent quality. The suspenders strap material and width is equal to more expensive bibs. Comfortable chamois though haven't put a big ride on yet. Decent thigh compression. Hope they continue to perform as well into the future. 6'-1" and 170 lb.
I'm have a high rise need for fitting my hips and and crotch depth. I have trouble finding Bib shorts that provide padding high enough to cover my sit bones. These bib shorts I purchased are excellent materials and comfort fit, feel like silk. But the padding does not go up high enough in back to cover my sit bones because I have a deep crotch. Consequently the padding in front is too much and causes chafing. Do you make a riding bib shorts with high back padding? Thanks
This is my first pair of ProCorsa bibs. Historically I've been Pearl Izumi pro. They are comfortable for all the rides I do, generally 20 to 50 mile road and gravel. I have no doubt they would carry me beyond. I will say at 6ft 2in and 195 pounds, I did need the XL to get the torso length needed. Will buy again.
I bought several pairs of the first generation of bib shorts, because they were the best value and had the best features in this price range. The third generation has improvements that make it even better. The laser cut straps are snug and very comfortable (no sagging). The back of the bib is better ventilated and significantly cooler for hot weather rides. The new chamois has an excellent fit and a slight improvement over the first generation. The third generation has fewer panels, but the compression and fit is still outstanding for bibs in this price range. I've been able to squeeze years out of the first generation shorts and hope to do the same with the third generation shorts. I believe these bibs are the best value by far in this price range.
This is the best fitting pair of bib shorts that I have ever worn. The padding is excellent and the anatomical fit can't be beat. The shoulder straps are wide and comfortable. The only thing to note is the legs are a little short compared to other shorts. Don't provide much compression on the thighs. The material seems to be of very good quality and these shorts will be worth the price if they last a good long time.
Ordered on a deal, so these were a good deal. They are but in a way that I'm not really built for them. The shoulder straps ride right against a very sensitive area on my body (we all have them, and they are sensitive!).. so I have to wear these bibs with an under layer. Overall pretty good.
I just got these and used them for the first time for a two and a half hour pain cave session on Zwift. I must admit they held up well. There was no bunching of the chamois, the size was advertised and the straps did not bind or dig in. There is only one thing I don't like, but this is more personal preference and not a negative on the product, and that is the length of the shorts. I like my shorts just a little longer than what these are. The shorts I wear cover 3/4 of the thigh to knee. These shorts cover about 2/3 of the thigh. Not a deal breaker.
The bibs are very comfortable and light. Sizing is small..(only reason for the 4 star rating) I had to return the L for XL. I'm 5'11", 200lb, and 34" waist. I've only ridden them for about 350 miles, so time will tell of it's durability. At this point, I love them.
Big improvement over McKenzie 2. Latest version is better than the original which I preferred to 2. The bibstraps are now fairly soft laser-cut straps that are placed far enough apart on the front that they don't rub against my nipples while riding. That makes me a happy camper.
Excellent chamois (looks like one of the better Elastic Interface chamois). Nice quality fabric and a rolled leg cuff.
I was a fan of the original McKenzie bib shorts - it was a solidly made product with a good chamois and long-term quality. But I thought the McKenzie II was a bit of a let down - not bad, but not as good as the original version.
This new version uses a very similar pad to the original (I think it's the current version of the same pad) and the legs are a bit longer (a good thing). The biggest improvement is the bib braces which now use stretchy lazer-cut bands, similar to what most brands are using for their high end models these days.
I've only done a couple rides in these, but I'm pretty happy with them. Great value compared to more widely distributed brands. Not quite the equal of upper-end Assos shorts, but comparable to Pearl PRO.
Will definitely get more of these.
These seem to be well made for the price with a great feeling pad. They do run small. I'm 5'-6" and weigh 135-140 with a 31 inch waist. The medium size fits plenty snug. The small size was way too tight. I didn't get them even part way on before giving up.
I've worn ProCorsa bibshorts for several years, not this model. The Summit Bibshort is very well made with an excellent chamois. Fits small. I had to order large to fit (5' 8", 170 lbs). Price is great for short of this value.
These are nice fitting comfortable and my 1st pair of bibs with this gel type chamois. It's not advertised as a gel, but is thicker than say standard Pearl Izumi. Issue so far is less than 10 rides in and there's some wear or minor fraying in the sit bone area. My saddle is smooth and other riding shorts show basically zero wear until about a year or so of riding. If photos are aloud I will post them. Possible return in the works here
I'm 5'10" and 160 lbs. My hip measurement is 39.5". I ordered the mediums and they fit great. They are nice and snug, but not binding. I can ride for a couple hours and feel not discomfort whatsoever. I will order these again.
