Stay cool through hot summer rides with the Nalini Men's Aeprolight Bib Short 1. Made from fabrics designed to sweep moisture away and resist abrasion, these bib shorts are a durable and highly functional addition to any cycling wardrobe.
Nalini fashions the Aeprolight from its Hot Moa XLight fabric and utilizes its Moa Mantodry treatment to enhance the fabric's moisture-wicking properties for exceptional breathability. This fabric also boasts a Moa High Tenacity treatment, which consists of a double-weave patterning in the yarns that increases abrasion resistance and durability. The uppers are made with stretchy paneling and mesh inserts to comfortably accommodate a wide range of rider heights.
The Aeprolight Bib Shorts feature Nalini’s Xrace Man chamois to keep you riding in comfort over the miles. Nalini uses multi-density and multi-thickness padding with strategically placed gel cushioning to provide optimal protection and support without unnecessary bulk.

- Q & A
Really like these bibs but...
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: Medium
First impressions when these bibs arrived is that the packaging was a bit overdone. A nice box instead of the usual plastic bag but that box has absolutely nothing to do with the bib quality. Now to the important information. Through them into the washing machine and when I pulled them out they were the lightest pair of bibs when wet that I own. Soaking wet weight is important when you are riding a double metric in the heat. Nothing I hate more than a chamois that feels like a wet diaper or dragging that extra pound of sweat up a big climb. Pulled them on for a 55 mile sprint with the gang and these are some nice looking bibs. The fit and finish is spot on as you would hope for this price point. These bibs are very comfortable and feel great even though the chamois is pretty thin. Important things stayed in place and the chamois recovered nicely on all of the hill sprints. The only thing possibly negative about these bibs is the lack of absorption of the material. These are the first bibs I have worn where I could feel the sweat running down my lower back around the hip bone area. This did not create any discomfort in the chamois probably because it tends to shed moister quite well. Due to the thinness of the chamois I would not recommend these bibs to the casual rider or someone that really 'sits' in the saddle instead of putting power to the pedals. Based on the fit and finish I have high expectations of these bibs over the long haul.
