Your own personal sit-bone appreciation day.
We know that International Sit-Bone Appreciation Day isn't a real thing, but we don't think that means you shouldn't take some time to give them the love they need anyways. We're pretty sure that the designers at Ion feel the same way, which would explain their generous gift to sit bones with the Ion Paze AMP IN-Bib Shorts for men. The Paze AMP IN-Bib Shorts are made almost completely of mesh, so you can stay cool and comfortable on the bike, and use a deluxe Vortex chamois from the well-known Italian-native La Fonte to offer the support you want for long rides.
Ion utilizes its Channel Flow and Channel Flow Lite fabrics to dial in the best combination of moisture-wicking and cooling when you're on the bike. Channel Flow is paneled on the inner thigh and crotch for smooth moisture-wicking comfort, that prevents chaffing and pulls sweat away to keep you feeling fresh. The lightweight Channel Flow Lite mesh makes up the remaining thigh, core, and bib, so sweat doesn't get trapped and you can keep cool. The Vortex chamois supporting your sensitive anatomy is made with La Fonta Shock Absorption Technology that absorbs up to 90% of impact energy on your ride, while wicking away moisture with its DryTex fabric that softly brushes against your skin to keep you comfortable.

Having only worn them on two rides, I can't yet attest to the durability of these bibs. However, having worn them on two 10+ mile rides, I can attest to their comfort. They felt great the entire ride - providing sufficient breathability, a great fit, and stayed in place. This is my first pair of bibs, and first purchase from Ion, but I will certainly be grabbing another pair. I've yet to use the pocket on the back, though it'd be perfect for a phone or a water bottle.
