We review and rate a selection of cycling shorts to find out which is best
As cyclists come in all shapes and sizes, it can be quite a personal choice when it comes to this all-important item. What comes up long on one rider’s legs will be perfect for another and you may prefer a thicker chamois to the next rider. While we found some good options with a comfy waistband we have to say our preference would always be the bib variety as it allows ultimate freedom of movement and optimum comfort comparably. If cash is no object we really do think that the high-end options from Assos, Skins or Castelli will offer you the best that money can buy, but as technology advances, the choice at every price point is becoming greater. At a snip of the cost are the Specialized Comp Bib Wordmark shorts which offer fantastic quality and are comfortable enough to ride in all day, proving you don’t always have to splash huge amounts of cash to benefit from a technical design.
