Watch the miles add up with Specialized's RBX Pro Bib Shorts. Cut from Specialized's VaporRize fabric for outstanding breathability and moisture transfer, these comfy shorts also sport panel construction and mesh bibs. They even feature Deflect UV 50+ sun protection and Coldblack technology that keeps dark clothing from heating up in the sun. Plus, Specialized's multi-density BG RBX Pro chamois and plush silicone elastic leg openings deliver all-day riding comfort.
Bought some about a month and a half ago, pad started feeling weird so I undid the sewing and found a pretty chinzy foam chamois pad that had fallen apart and two rubber inserts that looked like they belonged to a 3rd graders art project.
Bottom LineNo, I would not recommend this to a friend
These shorts are not your old Specialized shorts. These new shorts, and particularly the new chamois, are leaps and bounds ahead of the older product. The Rbx chamois, though seemingly heavy, provides great comfort and padding when in riding position, particularly a slightly more upright endurance road position. They provide excellent muscle support and the materials really seem to be top-notch. All in all, I would rate these shorts with the best from other mainline companies.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
