Chrono Expert Bib Short
In a world of mostly black cycling bibs, spotting the difference can pose quite a challenge. While Giro's Chrono Expert Men's Bib Shorts may, at first glance, blend in with the rest, we urge you to take a second glance and get to know them a bit more. These shorts offer the foundation you need for long miles, just as well as hill sprints, and they do so with an environmentally friendly spin. Unlike the Chrono bibs of years past, this year Giro's designers opted to use entirely recycled materials for the body with the Renew Series fabrics that save natural resourves and reduce environmental impact, while still keeping compression and support in mind. The result is a pair of bibs that are not only performance oriented, but sustainable, too.
Fabric goes a long way in how much we notice kit in the saddle, and for the Chrono Expert, Giro trusts a nylon-lycra blend to create a short that will move with you while you train, wrapping supportively around your muscles for a precise, next-to-skin fit. The Lycra content in the fabric helps it maintain its shape over hours in the saddle, so you won't have to deal with chafing or stretching fabric, and it uses subtle compression leg bands to hold the leg hems in place without irritating your skin. The stretchy, breathable mesh bib follows a minimal design but remains supportive, shaped specifically to accommodate your body in a riding position. A chamois is arguably the most difficult aspect of bib shorts to make undetectable while you ride, but Giro chooses wisely with its Custom Chrono Expert, which it created to integrate specifically with this bib short. In addition to supporting you in the saddle with plush cushioning and strategic areas of relief, the chamois breathes and moves with you as you ride, subtly keeping you comfortable so you can focus on the miles ahead.

- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I am skeptical of bib shorts that are under 200 bucks. I've been riding a long time and my sit bones get angry if I look at cheapo bibs. I have spent 3 weeks in the new chrono expert bibs now and have been very pleased. I've also used them teaching a few spin classes so I've put some miles, and hours in these. Fit is almost euro, the were not SUPER tight but at 5'7" 131lbs a size small was ok. if you had bigger thighs at my height I think you'd be fine. The chamois is actually not to shabby! a nice surprise in a $150 short. If I was doing a 4 hour road race they would not be my first choice, I'd go spendy for that. But for 2-3 hours riding I was totally comfortable. I hope this helps out anyone looking at these and I'm happy to help with any comparisons as well.
