Pave Bibshort

Endurance Pad

Need help deciding the right pad for you? Read our journal post to help you decide.

Your bibs are your second skin providing both support and comfort. The quality of the pad is essential as one of the few touchpoints between you and your bike. The blue pad will keep you comfy and fresh on longer rides and events, ideal for sportives and audaxes.

Featuring a multi-panel design and a full mesh back, the Pavé’s snug fit provides stability and essential ventilation. Designed and tested on our famously rough British roads the Topazio fabric has less elasticity than regular lycra to hold tired leg muscles more firmly and reduce fatigue. With a wide elasticated cuff with subtle silicone printing you have all the grip you need without cutting your circulation off.

Down to the finest details, we’ve created a bib short that will provide you with the utmost comfort. Where most brands use flatlock stitching which doesn’t allow the fabric to stretch, we use a zig-zag stitching for the ulitmate flexibility. External labels and a reflective Chapeau! label add up to a highly technical bib short that you’ll appreciate as much at the end of a ride as the beginning.

The Pad

We know that one of the most important parts of a bibshort is the pad. That's why we put our trust in industry leader Elastic Interface when it comes to this important component. Here is the low down on the pad specified in the Blue Pave Bibshort:

The Comp HP Men is the evolution of the Multi-D Comp, one of our most successful cycling pads. The new version features premolded wings and an integrated top for a smooth, seamless look. While the overall dimensions are almost the same, the ultra high density foam inserts have been enlarged in order to deliver a greater degree of comfort during longer rides while in the road bike position. While keeping the minimalist, flat design of the original pad, the central channel has been slightly modified to provide more relief along the perineal area. A reduced usage of the back liner makes the pad even more lightweight and breathable, allowing greater freedom of movement.

Comfort fitted as standard!

I had purchased some of the women's clothing for my wife but never purchase the man's kit. I was after some simple but well designed black shorts and these really fitted the bill. First time I used them was to ride up Mont Ventoux and they did not miss a trick not adjustment needed.

On some longer riders (80/90 miles) they we very comfortable and considering I went with the blue pad that tends to have more comfort at the back end of the short or a more up right riding position I did not suffer any rubbing or pain we learning forward low on the hoods when working on the front of the group or trying to get out of the wind. If you are after a great set of good looking shorts that are very well made and will see you through 80+ mile rides then grab as set. Forget the overpriced Rapha / Assos stuff (i have tried it all) these are better and look super pro - I teamed mine up with a set of the chapeau long white stock. Just guttered i did not order a few pairs in the sale.

I've been looking for ages for a perfect pair of bib shorts and I think I've found them. The padding is excellent, the fit is bang on and they are supremely comfortable. Will buy again definitely.
