The Bodyfit Pro LTD Bibshort are excellent for racing and training. These are four season bibs that work well for most days through the year. Only in the extreme heat of summer I would opt for lighter grade lycra like Sportful R&D Celsius, or in cold days of winter i would opt for thermal lycra like Sporful Fiandre. The color options of red, brown and blue are a nice break from forever black bibs. The only downside of these bibs depending on your physic is that I would prefer the straps a bit longer. I'm 5.11 and wear size Medium. When I first put them on the straps feel tight over the shoulders. However, on a bike I don't notice it and after several it seems to stretch a bit as well. Was not a deal breaker for me as I own a pair in every color but beware if you have a taller physic.
The SPORTFUL MEN'S BODYFIT PRO LTD BIBSHORT is a very comfortable bibshort for long hours rides. I have use then in diverse weather conditions, including sunny, rainy and hot days without any problem. They are fresh, stay firm and my sit bones love it. This bibshort is a sound choice for medium to high level cyclist.
Great bibs but for one big flaw- They are longer than most and a inch or two shorter would have been nice but not a deal breaker, the chamois is great and the materials are very nice as is the fit .......but the straps are the worst I have have seen on any bibs. The are made of a rough harsh material. They roll up super easy and after a long ride my shoulders had what can best be described as rope burn. I can handle about 30 miles but longer than that and the straps are gonna make you pay. Which is too bad the fit and pad is great - they are a bit long but the straps are a deal breaker. Wish I would have returned these before I wore them. I would buy more Sportful but will look closer at the straps before buying.
Great chamois, fit, and price! For reference on size/fit, I am 5'8" 170 and wear M in brands such as Pearl Izumi, Bontrager, and L in Giordana. Size L in these Sportful fit great.
Uses quality materials and great fit, do not even know Im wearing them which is what I want. They have great compression, outstanding chamois pad, and fit well while aggressive cycling. Itallian sizing so pay attention your sizing charts from Sportful's website.
The best bib shorts I ever had. Chamois pad is outstanding comfort. Sizing runs a little small compared to American brands so be sure to size up and check your measurements closely with Sportfullï¿½s size charts.
The shoulder straps are very comfy and a nice material not too tight, ordered large at 6ï¿½1ï¿½ 75kg. The length of the short is longer then most, closer to the top of the knee, much longer then Castilli for example. Very compressive and a solid pad, have done 4-5 centuries on this bib and itï¿½s great.
