Sometimes, our schedules dictate that we can't get out for a ride until the afternoon. In the fall and spring, this is ideal, but in the heat of summer, it almost makes us not want to ride at all. Hincapie Sportswear understands this frustration, as evidence by the super cool, super cooling Hincapie Sportswear Power Bib Shorts.

The main body of the bib shorts consists of AT2 Force Lycra Power, a minimalistic synthetic blend that achieves a barely-there fell. This is hit with Schoeller's coldblack finish that reflects heat and provides a UPF of 50, so you'll shrug off the sun's heat and potentially harmful after effects. The panels that sit between you and the saddle are ABR Resistor Lycra, which — contrary to popular belief — is not a futuristic robot villain. Rather, it's a fabric with a durable nylon face and a wicking polyester lining.

The bibs are made from Velocitek mesh, which stretches and wicks with the best of them, and the leg bands grip without elastics, a feature that we've come to demand in bib shorts. One thing we don't demand or even expect from bib shorts is the addition of reflective elements. The Power Bib Shorts surprise us by including them, so they help keep you visible in low-light conditions.

For the insert, Hincapie opted to use the Pro Chamois. The Pro Chamois' four-way stretch means it moves with you, not against you, and the Perineal relief channels keep the pressure where you want it and not where you don't. The brushed microfiber fabric is perforated for ventilation and breathability, and it houses double-layer, multi-density foam that absorbs bumps and road noise to keep you comfortable for up to six hours in the saddle.

The Hincapie Sportswear Power Bib Shorts are available in five sizes ranging from Small to XX-Large in the color Black.

Too short

  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I usually find that the Hincape brand looks good and fits me well. Unfortunately these shorts provide almost no leg coverage. I found myself constantly pulling down the legs, but they would only really cover to mid thigh. Perhaps they will be good when it is super hot outside. Till then, it seems like a poor purchase.

Great bibs from a great rider

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:True to size

So far, every Hincapie product that I have purchased fits great, true to size, are well made, handle multiple washings and they just plan look great. Always looking to add to my cycling wardrobe and these did not disappoint. Chamois is the right thickness for 3-6 hour rides. Really great product.
