OFFROAD BIB SHORTS THAT ARE ANYTHING BUT MAINSTREAM
The Skarp bib shorts are specifically designed for high-speed XC mountain bike and gravel riding. It is designed for a faster positioning on the bike that keeps the experienced rider comfortable all the way to the finish line. When this product was tested by our testing crew, they were totally blown away saying things like” This is by far the best bib shorts I have ever ridden”. Combine the Skarp bib shorts with Grus Jersey for a 100% race look and feel.
OUR CHOICE OF FABRIC
We tested a ton of different fabrics and finally found this high-end Italian blend of recycled polyester and elastane. We came to the conclusion that this mix of materials is the best choice for high speed races on gravel when it comes to comfort, low weight, aerodynamics and breathability. The suspenders are constructed with a minor mesh panel on the back and super soft comfortable elastics on the front for maximum comfort and breathability.
THE KEY FEATURES:
The Skarp Bib shorts have a longer leg length with suspenders constructed with a mesh panel on the back and bands in elastics. The leg ending comes with a 75 mm silicone grippers printed with the statement “X Anything But Mainstream”. Why? Because we believe this product really is.
The mesh rear pocket substitutes the use of a regular cycling jersey when riding a causal t-shirt style. Perfect for an extra wind vest, jacket, or a pair of gloves. Use the integrated right leg pocket when off the bike for your phone or to stash that extra gel for the longest ride.
THE CHAMOIS AND THE CONSTRUCTION
We choose to equip all our bibs with premium chamois from Elastic Interface®, simply because we believe they are the best around. The chamois chosen for the Skarp Bib shorts are the 200 Density premium lite pad, specially made for gravel. The design is made for a faster positioning on the saddle and is suitable for the experienced rider, used to longer rides, who knows their perfect saddle and need stable padding. The fabric features of polyamide and polyester yarns guarantee cooling and quick drying, preventing chafing. This construction is intended for women who are sensitive to compression. Additional relief is delivered by using thinner and lower density foams in selected areas of the chamois, minimizing pressure, but at the same time providing support where needed.
