Shorts & Bibs
Alloy CyclingWear shorts are constructed from six fabric panels using a combination of polyester/spandex and technical wicking material sections. This multi-panel, mixed fabric construction allows for best fit and riding comfort whether you’re on a short training roll or a day-long excursion through the countryside. Because let’s be honest, you may have the most beautiful bike and best-looking jersey, but if you have ill-fitting shorts, if you’re uncomfortable “where the rubber meets the road” it’s going to be a long, miserable day in the saddle.
Like our jerseys, our cycling shorts are available in both women’s or men’s versions. Our shorts are lined with gender-specific, anti-bacterial contour gel pads to keep it easy on the ‘parts’ and allow for extended time in the saddle.
Bib shorts utilize the same construction as our shorts but with the addition of lightweight mesh fabric shoulder straps. Shoulder straps keep the bibs firmly in place and prevent movement, tucking or rolling down of the garment. Bibs provide increased comfort during any ride but in particular, are well-suited for an extended time in the saddle.
Our pads are also designed for both women and men. The women’s short pad is a broader pad, offering a more a pillow like fit (see the pink pad). The mens short pad (the blue pad) offer compression through the center and are engineered for the male anatomy.
