Sportful Total Comfort bibshorts £135
Technically, this is a ‘200 miles in one hit later'. Having selected these shorts based on the significantly padded ‘Total Comfort' chamois, I'm pleased to say it didn't disappoint.
With 18mm of padding on the sit bone area, I was grateful for every single millimetre. Torrential rain throughout the ride meant high potential for chafing, but the shorts fitted so well, and construction was so good that any concerns were alleviated.
In essence, the shorts were perfect. Riding in them for over 12.5hrs, in one go, it was very much a make-or-break relationship. And to say these are my now my favourite shorts is testament to their function.
