Modesty shouldn’t hurt.
Almost every cyclist enjoys the comfort of a chamois and the support of Lycra shorts, especially on longer rides. Not everyone feels comfortable riding around in tights, however. Giro designed its New Road Bib Undershort 2.0 for these, slightly more modest cyclists. Now you can enjoy the comfort without putting it out there for all the world to see.
The bib shorts were constructed using a soft Lycra blend, which effectively wraps your legs for a smooth, leg-hugging fit. This material works to pull moisture away from your skin to keep you dry, cool, and comfortable underneath your additional outer layers. An Italian-made Cytech chamois was added, as well as lightweight mesh bib straps, rounding out the support and comfort departments.
Knowing that many riders still like to wear base layers underneath casual riding clothes — absent of the traditional jersey's rear pockets — Giro incorporated three pockets into the upper rear panel of the bib shorts. This design lets you securely stash your valuables underneath your other layers and out of sight. Along these lines, a Quick-Access fly was also added at the front, which, of course, makes pit stops less of a chore.

- Q & A
can i wear this as a stand alone bib short by itself? I would like to wear this because of the pockets but do not plan to wear anything on top of it. thanks?
I would not recommend wearing this item by itself as the material is heavily ventilated. There are other options out there that are not liners, such as the Giro Chrono line, that incorporate rear pockets.
