Altura - Repel
Once again, Altura have packed enough attention to detail in their Repel Bib Shorts to make Sherlock Holmes gasp. They really are ideal for riding in all day, in all weathers and across all terrain. The secret to success is two-fold. First, at the heart of the shorts sits the Stealth chamois pad; a mirrored, 3D construction creates a flat surface and remove excess material while still boasting just enough padding in the right spots to both protect and deliver complete freedom of movement, as well as the breathability and elasticity you have come to expect. Secondly, the DWR treatment on the outside keeps wet and wind at bay from spring to autumn without cutting down on cooling ventilation.
Comfort and protection might be the ethos for the Repel Bib Shorts, but it certainly isn’t the end of the story. On the inside hem you’ll find silicone printing that keeps the lower section perfectly in place as you ride without causing discomfort, while mesh in the upper section allows air to move in and out with ease. Finally, reflective detailing does a sturdy job of keeping you safe and seen to other road users at all times.
