Typical Shimano fit and function.
Shimano's S-PHYRE clothing lineup brings premium features to keep you riding at your best in all conditions. The Men's S-PHYRE Bib Short is the perfect match to accompany the S-PHYRE jersey and is designed to provide comfort over your longest training rides and races with new materials and a chamois designed to reduce friction and improve performance.
We always prefer bibs to shorts as they provide more support and a better fit at the waist without a band digging into your torso. The S-PHYRE bibs take this refined fit up a notch and smooth out the fit across the thigh too, offering optimal compression and support for the muscles. The knitted fabric further bolsters compression, adds impressive breathability, and transfers moisture. Even the graphics are knitted rather than applied, printed, or sublimated ensuring no areas would affect compression or cause irritation. Woven leg gripper securely holds the leg hems in place and are more comfortable than silicone grippers.
The chamois is perhaps the real star of the show on these bibs and Shimano set out to create one that is comfortable for every rider. Much like it does with components, Shimano distilled rider feedback and engineers spent countless hours with finite analysis tools and computer models in the development of the chamois. The engineers created the theory and real-world testing either confirmed or contradicted the theory. It features an articulated rear section with separate left and right wings that naturally moves with your body allowing for a greater range of motion and nothing to affect a perfect pedal stroke. The 3D contouring locates thicker padding on the sides to facilitate easier movement on the saddle while changing positions and reduces bulk. Shimano employs Shock Absorption Technology, that is strategically placed closer to the saddle while smoother materials are the only ones that touch skin, helping quell road noise and evenly distribute pressure throughout the life of the chamois. As such, you stay fresher for longer while riding the classic-esque roads you love. A future you're sure to appreciate on the hottest summer days, Shimano adds 3mm perforated holes to improve ventilation and transfer moisture keeping you cool.The S-PHYRE Bib Short is available in Black or Blue and in the sizes S-XL.

I typically ride with ASSOS bibs but these felt great. Very thin and breathable, will be a great for summer riding or indoors on the trainer during winter. Insert felt great and mirrored the ASSOS feel. I would buy again.
