    Elegantly redesigned.

    De Marchi was so satisfied with its top-end Veloce bib shorts that it found ways to apply the same fit concepts to the rest of its line. The classic, minimal Leggero Women's Bib Short now features similar panels of stretchy, breathable fabric arranged specifically to support the muscles that work the hardest in the saddle — hamstrings, quads, glutes, and hip flexors. Though De Marchi made similar changes to its Classico Short this year, it uses a lighter, airier fabric to craft the Leggero, suiting the latter well to unavoidably hot summer rides when breathability and moisture transfer are key factors.

    In addition to restructuring the leg panels of the Leggero, Marchi also cuts it with a high, supportive waist that transitions seamlessly to the mesh bibs with stretchy microfiber panels. Meant to be stabilizing but not restrictive, the mesh panels help facilitate faster moisture transfer away from your skin while following your body movements in the saddle. The bib straps themselves are crafted with light, airy fabric meant to disappear under a jersey, with elegant white piping setting it apart as classier and cleaner than its basic black counterparts.

    To further address comfort, De Marchi trusts the experts in chamois design over at Elastic Interface Technology. The Leggero is lined with the EIT's women's-specific N-Dura Air insert. While De Marchi specifically states that the chamois provides up to six hours of comfort, we'd say the Leggero itself is a short you can trust to remain plush and supportive for the duration of your ride without getting too hung up on numbers. The N-Dura Air's arrangement of multi-density foam topped by a soft, odor-resistant microfiber helps the chamois integrate smoothly with the rest of the Leggero, creating little opportunity for chafing and the reassurance that you can sit, stand, and stretch out in the saddle comfortably throughout your ride.

    Strange fit

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Size Bought: M
    • Height: 5'5"
    • Weight: 125lbs

    These might work for someone with wider hips and skinnier legs than me. The leg elastics were way too tight, but the chamois was too wide and stiff to fit me. Too bad, because the bib straps were a good length and felt great!

    A sincere thank you from my butt cheeks.

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

    I wore these on a recent bike tour of southern Utah, and they absolutely rescued me from serious saddle soreness. The chamois was worth every penny. I'd previously never tried bibs before, and the typical discomfort I experience from elastic waistbands digging into my midsection when I wear shorts was eliminated--the design is soooo comfortable!
