The race short par excellence. It's not easy to combine maximum freedom of movement and extreme comfort for long hours in the saddle. But with the TC Pro seat pad, the AeroFlow fabric and many tricks learned over the years in the pro cycling world, this short has succeeded.
Who Is It For?
For those who climb on the saddle ready for a challenge and competition and who want a short for their granfondos, their hardest training sessions, and their everyday contests with their riding partners.
The top racing short in the Sportful road line. Tried, tested, and developed with the pros of Team BORA-hansgrohe, this is the standard short for the team throughout the season. It’s the most used version, on which we’ve based the Air, for hot days, and the Shield, the protective version in the event of a fall.
The LTD Bibshort is built around the TC Pro seat pad, which ensures sufficient comfort even in the longest races such as Milan–San Remo, and allows maximum freedom of movement in any situation, including mass sprints (yes, sprinters are the most demanding in terms of freedom of movement).
The construction of the legs in AeroFlow gives the right degree of compression and stretch for comfort and adherence, and the leg endings are in elastic without seams. The real secret of this short is the flat-lock seams and their positioning: we’ve reduced them to a minimum and inserted them in places where friction is minimal. No irritation or hindrance during your maximum effort.
Why You Will Love It?
Road racing short. Minimal bulk, racing structure and cut, and a seat pad that ensures comfort and freedom of movement even in the longest races.

good quality fits awesome
tighter than expected but it was rather nice. it makes perfect fit
Best. Made for race. Fits tight but doesnt bother any motion.
ok, but expected more
I have 4-5 different bibs at home ranging from basic MAAP, castelli or top of range NW bibs. The materials and quality of the bib looks ok, however after wearing it twice, in both rides (2-3 hours each) I faced issues with bib rubing my leg despite best efforts to organize things in the best possible way. Size comes really small as mentioned before with 180cm/66kg I needed size M and it is still on the small side of things.
Quality good but bib straps are short and legs are long
I ordered a size L - 5'11', 182 lbs, 34 waist. The legs were a bit too long - down to the knees, which is minor, but the bib straps were very, very tight. They (the straps) do not stay wide like in the picture, but bundle into a cord and dig into my shoulders, causing discomfort. I thought about sending them back, but thought XL would be even longer in the legs, so I held onto them hoping the bib straps would stretch out over time. So far, after 3 rides, they have eased up a bit, so I am hopeful they will eventually become comfortable. The chamois and fit are otherwise fine and they seem like they are made well. Sizing is just inconsistent and off.
Very comfy bibs with one weakness
These bibs are as comfy as any in the shorts and padding area. I am including the 7mesh Mk3's in the mix. However, the shoulder straps are the weak link. They naturally want to roll up and it's difficult to keep them from doing it. They are also a little short compared to others. However annoying this may be when putting them on, I can't say that I notice discomfort out on road. I'm pretty sure the next edition of these bibs will have better shoulder straps. As long as they don't change anything else, these bibs would be all I'd want.
Haven't ridden in these yet so take this review for what it is. But I wanted to get this out because if you are ordering these, consider size very carefully. I typically wear a L. However after reading some reviews on another site I knew they ran small. So I sized up one size. After receiving these and trying them on, I should have sized up 2 sizes to XXL.
I've bought bibs based on price at PB - like Castelli based on previous purchases. I'll compare these to my Premio - these have a nice fit - good pad and comfortable. They are well finished and feel premium. No complaints so far. Through the different brands I'm XXL and these are comparable.
