I have a Tri Suit from Real that I absolutely love, so when I saw the new cycling kit in a design I liked, I went for it. The bibs fit true to the size chart. It has really good compression (not too much, not too little) and the shoulder straps are extremely comfortable. I love the thigh pockets for optional additional nutrition storage, clean stitching throughout. My go to kit traditionally has been Assos Equipe RS line, it fits me best and if I have a long day in the saddle I know I'll be comfortable. This is priced similarly to that line, so I expect it to compete on all aspects. I prefer the amount of padding on this bib as on the assos it can occasionally get bunched and slightly irritating. I will say the material on the pad for these is not quite as soft, so I would recommend using whatever creme you typically do for chaffing. With that combo, these are at the top of my preferred bibs list. The only thing I can't speak to is longevity at this point, but I see no reason for concern there.
Wow, this is one of the most thoughtful reviews we have ever received. Thanks for taking so much time to post this. We are3 super stoked to be held in such high-regard and look forward to hearing from you when have a 1,000 miles in those bibs.
