SPECIALIZED Body Geometry Comp bib shorts, £59.99, www.specialized.com


Specialized have clearly made the effort to get the comfort aspect of these bibs right — we found the positioning of the ergonomic panels on the insert spot on for long distance rides. The company has also developed effective non-slip elastic around the legs.

The product is made with a combination of nylon, polyester and Spandex to ensure they stretch well and don’t constrict around the waist. The colour combination of grey, white and black also works well as long as you don’t mind the prominent logo.

PROS well designed and well finished, with comfortable panels and leg grippers
