Padded bib shorts you can just pull on, ride and forget. Equally at home on or off road with a comfortable and durable chamois to help keep you in the saddle and racking up more and more miles.
Slide yourself into a good bib and it will hug you nice and snug. The bib prevents the shorts sliding down, eliminates any cold spots around your waist and just makes you feel.. well a little more nurtured!
The uppers are constructed in a fine stretchy polyester mesh for maximum breathability. When you step up the pace the mesh will help wick moisture away from your skin and reduce the cooling effect of evaporation. Layered under windproof and thermal layers the mesh will trap air, creating micropockets of heat to keep your core warm. The seams are flatstitched to sit friendly under your other garments.
These lightweight bib shorts have our QOM chamois to relieve the pressure spots that occur when you are in the saddle for extended periods. Moisture wicking and antibacterial to help reduce the saddle soars that are caused by grumpy bacteria developing over the course of a long ride. 13 mm thick PU foam where you need it most and slimmer around the sides for body contouring comfort.
Constructed from lightweight, breatheable, elastic fabric they are designed to be worn next to your skin, and since there is only one layer of fabric, they breathe well and keep you cool when the weather is hot. If you are going the big distances we always recommend that you apply a good quality anti-chafing chamois cream for cool soothing action.
For the best visibility on the UK roads we have positioned a reflective logo on the right thigh. Additional relective logos are positioned on the lower back and high up between the shoulder blades - roll on those barmy English summer evenings! The hems have tacky silicone grippers to prevent the shorts from riding up and going all Nora Batty on you!
Suitable for on or off-road riding - these are the bibs for great multi-day riding.
Rhythm Shorts come with a thicker 3D chamois made to perform for long days in the saddle. It's like a good pair of jeans or quality shoes: wear them, wash them, and let them soften and mould to your riding position so that the pad becomes super comfortable.

Sadly not what I expected
Terrible shammy, it's huge and creates a camel toe look while not providing good enough support. The elastic band squeezes my thighs (they are not very thick, I promise). The result: a not very desirable sausage look. Sad because I'm so very happy with all the other Alpkit products I own....
Sadly the cycle shorts do not match the quality of other Alpkit products I have purchased. The fit of the padding is poor, it is way too large for women's specific shorts. All the padding is up front which makes you look like you have a Tudor cod-piece. Okay if that is the look you want. After a couple of outings and washes the Alpkit logo has peeled off the back. I would not recommend these at all.
