Great for the price

For the price, these are great bibshorts, the chamois is more comfortable than I though, and the pockets on the leg panels come in handy.. and it’s nice having something other than black!!

Van rysel bib shorts

Seem ok .fit as expected ,however pad seems slightly to far forward ,hoping with washing will improve comfort. I have decathlon bib shorts over ten years,still super comfy

Stitching came away after 2 washes

Only had these for a month and the stitching on the bib came away from the mesh on the bib. Not had this problem before with Decathlon bib shorts so hoping this is just bad luck

Strange sizing

No issues with the fabrics used here and the two leg pockets are handy. The chamois is extremely firm, which may or may not suit you. I can't recommend these to the average cyclist, however, because of the strange sizing. The legs were short and very tight indeed (to the point the seams were distorting), but the waist and shoulder straps were loose. They seem to be designed for a very overweight person with matchstick legs - so not your average road cyclist. I have used bibs from a range of the major brands and never had this issue. I returned these, but I suppose if you are very wide in the middle and have tiny, short legs, they may suit you perfectly.

Great value, great quality.

Having used these shorts (Black 2XL) for several rides I can honestly say they've been the least chafing, most comfortable cycling bib shorts I've ever used. So good I've ordered another pair.

Extremely comfortable

Whilst in the Cardiff store looking at short for an impending all day ride, I was advised by a very knowledgable guy called Samuel to try these, well eight hours and over 125km in one day later, i must admit, that i am thoroughly impressed with them, not only really very comfortable, i didn't experience any unwanted rubs or chafes, performed admirably and I would say on a par with some slightly more expensive brands. in essence I would highly recommend them and 'Chapeau' to young Samuel for all his help and advice

Quality of padding is good for long rides. But two issues .. 1) The length is much shorter than regular shorts usually cover at least 3/4 of the thigh. This one covers around 1/2 when worn and rises up even further on riding. So leg sleeve becomes mandatory if some cover for the thigh required. This happened even when I tried a size more than mine (XL) 2) Comfort around the crotch somewhat lacking. Seems like a design for women shorts there.

comfortable only for skinny people

For outsize people the padding ends up halfway on seat area, i think they should maximize padding length for 2xl sizes

How our rc500 cycling shorts were designed

The story of the design phase for our Exposure cycling shorts.From observations, field tests, and all the way through the design process:FR:

New anatomical pad

The RC500 cycling shorts come with a new ”anatomical” chamois pad. The central seam lets the pad fold. This construction technology ensures the perfect fit and stability in the saddle. It has been designed for the male anatomy, and its stretchy layers let it follow the body's movements as you ride.

Breathable high-density foam

The chamois pad is made from a unique combination of materials offering the type of protection needed on your long rides. The pad has a protective, high-density 265 lb/m³ foam insert under the sit bones and the entire undercarriage. The top layer of fabric, which is in direct contact with the skin, is made from spandex and brushed polyester threads to prevent rubbing and irritation. All of the layers are breathable and wick perspiration.
