These are one of our most popular items over the years and use a lycrasport fibre for a metered, supportive fit. These shorts are breathable and versatile in wide temperature ranges with soft branded black elastic breathable braces.

– This classic blackout colourway makes them a slick match for any jersey in your wardrobe. Compression Lycra. (for female riders, please check out our option for female riders also).

– Available in Two Leg Band Ending Lengths which is our Standard/Regular Length of 45mm and an Extra Extra Long Length of 85mm.

– Standard REGULAR LEG ENDINGS are with a 45mm band ending on both legs, standard across all our Bib Shorts and we advise this for most riders.

– Extra Extra LONG Limited Edition LEG ENDINGS come +4cm so with an 85mm band endings on both legs, extended, extra length for those advanced riders who are looking for a longer leg band ending which should finish just above their knee.

Chamois Information:
– Inside are 2 popular Made in Italy pads, which are exclusive to us and we call these the ‘ORANGE AIR’ and the ‘BLACK ZENITH’ Pads. You just select which type in the variants option you would like as we have teamed up with a leading Italian Chamois Pad manufacturer.

– The ORANGE AIR Pad, comes in a different length for Size XXS, XS and Small compared to a slightly longer length for the Medium, Large, XL plus Bib sizes. This pad is open cell memory foam technology, has excellent elasticity, breathability and is super for those riders who desire the most padding and are not mountain goats. We always advise this pad for riders who wear size LARGE and upward as it is the most comfortable thick pad we offer (along with the TORNADO). Both male and female riders can use this pad. The AIR is a 120 density, bi-elastic, has a thickness of 14mm, 3 layer foam pad with a soft-tech face fabric which is a high-tech microfiber and internal 3mm holes that grant a better transpirability and quick drying.

– The ‘BLACK ZENITH’ Gold Edition, we believe can be best suited more to the lighter rider (so <  80KG) , the rider who loves to climb or an experienced rider who demands the best for long distance as its a slimmer feeling pad when compared to the Orange AIR or TORNADO. It has 4 layers, 140 density, is for long distance and the face fabric is Soft-Tech with TRS3 perforated foams.  Its has a multi-level thickness of 14-4-2mm.

NB: (for female riders please check the ‘Classic Core Blackouts’ under our Ladies Section which has a female version of the Black Zenith Gold Edition pad available and in stock !!)
