Powerweave Bib Shorts

In 2019, we returned to the professional peloton with EF Pro Cycling to present a new face of the sport and develop the next generation of our performance racewear. After eighteen months of close collaboration with WorldTour professionals like Mitch Docker, we can now reveal our revolutionary new race bib short.

For every race day, there are countless more spent in training. Before every cobbled sector comes a protracted fight for position. To make it to a climb’s upper reaches, you first have to navigate its lower slopes. Professional cyclists cover thousands of kilometres over the course of a race season but it all boils back to a few key moments.

When the flag drops, the pace kicks and the final corner nears, there is always a defining moment, a split second decision, when the rider must put everything on the line - when they must perform at the very limits of their capability and test their strength with pressures never before experienced.

The new Pro Team Powerweave Bib Shorts are made for these moments. Made to make the difference. Made for race-winning movement.

Woven technology

Our revolutionary Powerweave fabric improves moisture-management and reduces weight by 20% compared with the Pro Team Bib Shorts.

“The fabric is so breathable that the heat is not a problem, not even at 40 degrees.”

Compression fit

All-new construction features just seven panels – 50% fewer than the Pro Team Bib Shorts – eliminating irritation from seams and providing an optimised level of compression that keeps the chamois pad stable.

High-density chamois

We’ve completely redesigned our race-ready chamois pad, using 5mm of quick-drying, high-density foam to create a narrower, higher-density pad that saves weight and adds stability for consistent comfort.

“The new chamois is excellent and is held securely in place by the compression of the fabric.”

“These bibs just wrap around you better. They are the best fitting shorts I’ve ever had.”

Ergonomic bib straps

Laser-cut, double layer bib straps contour the shoulders for pressure-dispersed support that remains consistent from the first ride to the final week of a Grand Tour.

“I’ve worn these bibs for thousands of kilometres and the straps never come loose.”

Engineered-in leg grippers

New gripper features woven in elastic yarns for optimised compression. No seams, no distractions.

“The woven fabric holds its shape really well and the integrated grippers provide just the right amount of pressure.”
