We have been developing lightweight bib shorts since 2011, but when designing the Superleggera Bib Shorts, we went back to the drawing board to rethink every aspect of their design. We decided that what the shorts needed to do is hold the seat pad securely in place, while adding as little weight as possible and retaining durability.

The solution was to engineer a brand-new fabric that is woven, rather a knit, saving 30% in weight for the same level of support. We also worked with a world leading mill to create a graded fabric that becomes increasingly lighter, the further down the leg it extends.

At the lightest point, this fabric weighs 90g/m2, compared to normal short fabric which weighs roughly 220g/m2. The result of these new technologies is bib shorts that weigh an incredibly light 141g in size large.

The fabric construction saves weight, but really comes into its own when riding hard in hot conditions, as it absorbs 30% less moisture compared to normal short fabric. This means that, while the fabric saves 48g in weight when dry, it saves closer to 150g when you’re sweating your way up cols and pushing yourself to your absolute limit.

  • Premium lightweight bib shorts for hot weather
  • Gradient stretch woven fabric, for minimal weight with optimum support
  • Minimalist stripe mesh bib straps to minimise weight and keep you cool
  • Integrated gripper elastic to keep shorts in place
  • Progetto X2 Air Seamless seat pad
  • Temperature comfort range of 20-40°C
  • Weight 141g (L)

Temperature: 20 / 40°C

The Expert's Guide

When the heat is on, no other bibshorts are as comfortable. The fabric doesn’t hold moisture, so during efforts on hot days you don’t get any unpleasant feelings of being damp. For the ultimate hot weather outfit, pair with the Superleggera Jersey. - Charles
