Ultimate Bibs


The most popular bib from The Black Bibs is now available in our custom line in standard or adventure (pockets).

A year of searching and testing led us to DR Pad of Italy for our Ultimate bibs. The pad is rated for 8 hours but honestly we haven’t found the end of its comfort. We had our testers put it through the wringer on big rides including Gordon Wadsworth’s top 5 at MidSouth Gravel. This bib is also available with pockets on the sides and back.

The pad is triple density 80-95-120 kg/m3. Thickness is from 2-15mm. We’ve added a carbon antistatic layer for increased comfort.

Pro+ Bibs

All Italian fabrics and chamois make our Pro+ Bibs one of the best out there. These are built with endurance in mind and have been ridden in national and world championships, stage races, and the Dirty Kanza 200.


  • Printed panels in MITI Shield fabric. This high compression fabric holds color while the compression keeps the blood flowing.

  • The Dolomiti Italian chamois is great for all types of rides. We don’t put an “hour rating” on the pad since that is very subjective, but we did choose this chamois because it has the perfect shape and density for long days in the saddle.

  • 5cm compression fabric power band with zig-zag stitch. This is the most comfortable leg opening we’ve found.

  • Flatlock contrast stitching in the color of your choice (or you can choose none).

  • 2 available inseam lengths plus male and female-specific fit and chamois.


Alpha Bibs

We’ve stepped up our “entry-level” bibs in a big way. For 2019 they use the same pattern and 5cm Italian power band leg opening as our legendary Pro+ Bibs. The only difference is a slightly more affordable chamois and printed fabric. Many find these more comfortable, though.


  • Sublimated compression fabric side and rear panel. Our new vacuum heat press technology means that the ink stays true even when stretched.

  • 5cm Italian compression fabric power band. Silicon is integrated into the band to hold the leg opening in place without being too tight. Our zig-zag stitch ensures that there is no binding at the attachment between the band and body of the bib. Most brands use a flat stitch here, which results in it feeling like a rubber band around your leg.

  • Male or female-specific fit and chamois. Male bibs are available in long or short inseam (5cm difference). You may combine inseam length and gender to get the best price level.

  • Mid panels in dyed compression fabric - black, navy, or red


Options: Male, female, & youth fit.

Pro+ and Alpha Shorts

The Pro+ and Alpha Shorts are for riders that prefer to ride without bib straps. They feature the same materials and chamois as their respective bib version but with an elastic waistband to keep them snug.

Standard: Male, Female, & Youth Sizing
