Supergiara Bib Short
We were thankful when Sportful dove head-first into the world of gravel kits with its Giara line, but after putting serious miles on the getup, those of us with pure gravel aspirations, and races like the Kanza and Tushar on our minds wanted a little more. It's not that the kit didn't hold up, but rather that we craved a little more compression when the miles start to rack up, and a gravel-specific chamois. Sportful delivers with the Supergiara Bib Shorts which bring a professional fit to the Giara we already loved, packing in more compressive fabrics to stabilize your muscles on long miles, anatomic mesh bib straps for total comfort and breathability, and an all-new chamois designed specifically to tackle life off of the tarmac.
The new DMS seat pad takes into account a few things from gravel riding that a regular chamois skips past: fit for a more up-right posture on the bike than traditional road cycles, and a different density of padding needed to soak up harsh chatter from variable terrain. The DMS chamois is built for the dirt and gravel road, with different densities of padding to make the real difference, relieving pressure in sensitive areas like the perineum, and adding extra padding to your ischial bones for extra support. The pad is both lighter weight, and shorter in length to better accommodate an upright position in the saddle. Sportful finishes off the Supergiara with thoughtful details that make a difference on long rides, like silicone grippers to lock the hem in place, and two side pockets to store essentials.

Its Got Pockets!
- I've used it several times
- Runs small
3 to be exact! One mesh cargo pocket on the left leg and 2 mesh pockets on back right below your jersey pockets. If you like long days out on the bike that means you also need to carry snacks to keep you fueled. One way to do that is with pockets and these bib shorts deliver. As gravel riding becomes ever so popular the riding gear follows. I'd say Sportful has some great options for all you gravel explorers and racers. These bibs have a very comfortable chamois and the compressive fit keeps your legs happy for those long days on the bike. My only complaint so far is the straps are a little snug on someone my height. I'm hoping they get more comfortable after some more rides and washes but we'll see. I don't think shorter riders will have this issue. The bib straps are super breathable though which is nice. Overall, I am really liking these bib shorts and the extra storage that they provide. Pair these with the Supergiara jersey and you have 7 pockets! I know I'll be going out for some epic rides this season with this kit and I think you should too! Sizing: I ordered a Large and I am 6'2" 170lbs. Fits perfect.
