Cycling clothing costs quite a bit for how narrow their usability is. You certainly don't want to wear your bib tights to the farmer's market without a bicycle to explain your dress; nor would you want to wear your lightweight summer jersey when temperatures are near-freezing. With that in mind, we've released the Contender Retro Insulated Bib Short, a short that is easily adaptable to a wide range of temperatures, weather conditions, and fits without issue.
The Contender Retro Insulated Bib Short is made by our friends at Vermarc, and is based off of their insulated thermal bib short. The inside features a brushed fleece inner that does a great job of wicking moisture away from the body to keep the muscles warm against cold winds. Pair it to your favorite leg warmer and use it all season long, or take off your warmers and use these insulated bibs three seasons a year. Either way you'll have a short that appropriate for nearly any condition, ride, or temperature. Fit is similar to other Vermarc bib shorts we use, meaning it is compressive without being restrictive.
The Contender Retro Insulated Bib Short is available in five sizes (S-XXL), and it's makes for an excellent pairing to our Contender G.S. Retro Jersey.
