In the search for a comfortable, supportive pair of bib shorts, it's easy to get lost in a sea of wildly expensive options pressuring you to empty your bank account. Keep some cash and stay comfy in the Nalini Men's E15CLASSIC Bib Shorts, boasting fatigue-reducing, vibration absorbing support, supple comfort, and a streamlined profile to power any road adventure.
The E15PUREs are fashioned from Hot Moa Light fabric with a tight, anatomic fit. Nalini chooses this particular fabric for its low weight, exceptional breathability, and compressive qualities. Not only do these shorts reduce fatigue by holding the muscles in place to protect from the road’s relentless vibration, they also provide support when you ask your muscles to push harder mile after mile. The uppers are made with stretchy, seamless inserts to comfortably accommodate a wide range of rider heights. For added durability, the crotch panel is made from an anti-abrasion material to reduce wear from saddle friction.
These bib shorts are form-fitting and were designed with the moving body in mind. To this end, the panels have been fashioned to follow the anatomy of the body while in the cycling position. All of the seams are flatlock stitched to minimize chafing, and anti-slip silicone grippers at the hems keep the leg bands comfortably in place without pinching or irritation.
The E15CLASSIC Bib Shorts feature Nalini’s Race chamois to keep you riding in comfort over the miles. Strategically placed gel inserts relieve pressure and eliminate numbness while the variable topography of high-density foam padding provides support for your sit bones and cushioning for your soft tissues. The insert is finished with an antimicrobial, moisture-wicking micro fiber to keep you cool, dry, and saddle sore-free.

- Q & A
Odd fit caused me to return
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: Runs small
- Size Bought: XL
I returned these new with the tags still on because when trying them on - three things stood out. The leg grippers were very tight...tight enough to cause a bulge and discomfort. The suspender straps were too short. I ordered XL, and these would be more appropriate for somebody a couple of inches shorter, say 5'10-11". The straps and upper were nice, just not quite long enough. BUT the oddest thing to me was the chamois position. It seemed very far back, and would provide coverage to parts of my butt that would NEVER make contact with the saddle, but would leave sensitive areas with not enough coverage, in my opinion. Otherwise it is too bad, because it seemed like good fabric and good material, and I would like to have been able to keep them and try them out.
Thanks to Competitive Cyclist for making the return easy though.
