Specialized Comp Bib Wordmark shorts are a cut above the competition at this price point
The chamois insert on the Specialized Comp Bib Wordmark short would not be out of place in shorts twice as expensive. Dense padding, without too much bulk, is spot on.
The dual material construction extends the Comp Wordmark's wicking capabilities, particularly at the front, while also being really soft on the skin. The short is made from a tough DuPont Lycra that feels supportive and fits snugly all over. We liked the wide shoulder straps, but the leg grippers could have been better.
