Racing, training—you name it and the SL Expert Bib Shorts will excel at it. They're made for aggressive riding in total comfort, and with almost every bell and whistle that we're capable of thrown at it, we'd say that they'll satisfy any rider that's demanding of their gear. To make them, we used some of our lightest knit materials, our VaporRize™ fabrics, in order to ensure that the bib shorts felt breathable, comfortable, and supportive. This selection also came with the benefit that, as the name suggests, VaporRize™ is highly effective at wicking and assisting in the evaporation of moisture. As a result, you get a well-rounded construction that's perfectly suited to intense efforts while in the saddle. For the fit, you could consider these shorts to fall into the "Form Fit" category, meaning that it lies intentionally close to the body for gains in both comfort and performance. The cut has also been articulated to accommodate the body while in the cycling position, so you'll experience next to no shifting throughout your ride. At the chamois, we selected our second-tier insert, the Body Geometry SL Expert chamois. Compared to the SL Pro, you'll find it to be slightly more substantial in the density department, but compared to the RBX line, it's relatively minimal. The experience it delivers is dutifully the same, however—it diverts pressure from the soft tissue and promotes a healthy blood flow, which all leads to increased performance and comfort.
We reject the notion that a durable, performance pair of bib shorts should come with a value of a pound of flesh. And unsatisfied with what we could find out there on the open market, we created the value-packed RBX Comp Bib Shorts. They're made from a knit version of our venerable VaporRize™ fabrics, which adds to the durability of the shorts without sacrificing any breathability or moisture wicking capabilities. The materials are also extremely soft against the skin, which is a sensation that's furthered by the fold-over leg cuff. Along these lines, this cuff at the leg opening features an ever so slight silicone print that prevents the shorts from shifting throughout your pedal stroke. For the chamois, we used a higher volume insert to promote the bib shorts' intended purpose: long rides in total comfort. This means that you'll receive a fair amount of extra support, which will help to alleviate pressure on the soft tissue and nerves over the course of a day on rough roads.
