An incredible season.
The subtle green stripe on the leg not only matches its accompanying jersey quite well, it should clue you into who stood on the top step of the world championships with these, the Men's 1987 Road World Championships Villach, Austria Bibshorts. When the dust settled, Stephen Roche of Ireland not only became world champion, he completed the Triple-Crown of the Giro, Tour, and Worlds in the same season, the only rider to ever complete this feat since the great Eddy Merckx. These bibs serve to reminisce and relive the nostalgia of the good old days of cycling, but with today's modern materials. The classic Kelley green and subtle rainbow stripes pay homage to Roche and again looks quite handsome with the jersey. Technical fabrics and materials offer exceptional moisture wicking performance that keeps you cool and dry so all you have to focus on is winning the final sprint like Roche did just over 30 years ago.
The bibs are made in Italy and feature silicone grip on the legs to ensure the cuffs stay in place over the course of the ride. Its raw-cut hem eliminates bulk and lets the wind easily pass over them. The chamois gets Git Evo padding with a twist gel core that will keep you comfortable on rides nearing 7 hours, as Roche's did on that momentous day in 1987.
