SPORTFUL TOTAL COMFORT BIBSHORT
DISCLAIMER: YOU’LL NEVER WANT TO WEAR ANOTHER SHORT.
The Sportful Total Comfort Bibshort is designed for long days (and nights) riding on the road. Comfort, in this case, doesn’t just mean cushioned because Sportful created a short that’s comfortable but not bulky. A seat pad that’s generous but still designed for performance. For a ride in full comfort or for racing four-digit distances.
OK, let’s get right to the point. The most comfortable short in our collection, designed for long days and ultracycling events. In designing a short, the most difficult compromise is between comfort and freedom of movement. With a very generous seat pad, comfort in the saddle is maximized but the pedaling is affected and unpleasant chafing can result. With a minimal pad, it’s just the opposite. With the Sportful Total Comfort bibshort — now in its second version — they’ve drawn on all their experience to eliminate this compromise. The Total Comfort seat pad is designed not to be noticed. Generous, with foam up to 18 mm thick, it will make you forget all the pain you associate with long distances. You have to try it to believe it. At the same time, its variable-thickness structure and its shape do not hinder movement: you’ll forget you have such well-padded shorts while pedaling.
The structure and the leg endings with oblique silicone elastic bands complete the features that make the Sportful Total Comfort bibshort our favorite short for long-distance road riding — though it works well off-road too. So, if you find us at the start of a NorthCape4000 or a Trans Am, you can be sure that we’ll be wearing it.
WHO IS IT FOR?
For those who prioritize comfort in the saddle and prefer a generous seat pad. For those who tackle very long distances, randonnées, or multiday races and know that, in addition to comfort, it’s important to have shorts that provide lumbar support.
