Bib shorts are an intrinsic part of any good day out on the bike and must perform at all levels, which is why we have created the Essential Road VPDs bib shorts to be the ideal companion for all types of riding. The Essential Road VPDs bib shorts have dynamic properties and have been constructed with stretch and compression fabrics to ensure an optimal fit and function.

The compact structure of the fabric supports your muscles, which helps circulation and recovery, whilst the integrated stretch and flatlock seam construction provides the optimal level of comfort and flexibility. POC's unique silicone based VPDs chamois technology has been designed to bring a new level of comfort and function to cycling bibs. The silicon inserts have been strategically placed to reduce road vibrations and pressure points, whilst the chamois material around the silicon inserts has been optimized for enhanced airflow and reduced chaffing.

The Essential Road VPDs bib shorts have a 4.5 cm elasticated leg ending for a secure fit and have a highly breathable and flexible suspender for enhanced comfort and feel. The bib shorts also feature a pocket in the rear mesh for small items and small reflective tabs on the rear to for improve rider visibility and safety.

Great Shorts

I've never owned POC apparel before and decided to give the Essential Bibs a try. These are a great fit for me (L) at 5'9" and 195 lbs. I would wear a 36" waist in dress pants. I am the opposite of 'Race Fit". The fit is true to sizing on the POC website so these are not like a Castelli or Sportful for fit. I didn't need to go up a size. If anything, I may have been able to use a medium. The sizing is more like Esteondo, Northwave, Nalini or Sugoi. The material of the shorts is extremely elastic, but not compression-like. It allows the shorts to fit nicely for various body shapes and stay comfortable. They are cool enough for summer riding (up to 30 celcius for me) and likely late spring or early fall. I'd guess to around 10 celcius. The chamois is excellent and has thicker, higher density foam around the sit bones. I did not experience any chafe due to the chamois and I have sensitive skin. The straps are fairly wide and are made of less stretchy, more coarse material. They were a snug fit for me and may be a problem for taller riders. They have a back pocket for those that may be interested. The construction seems very high quality with perfect stitching and seams. These are now my favorite shorts! I'd buy them again. Just be careful of the sizing.
