"Having bought lots of DHB kit and always being impressed with the quality and value of their kit, unfortunately the pad for me lets the bib short down, its seems quite uncomfortable after an hour or so of riding, maybe with chamois cream it might improve .. otherwise I,m sticking with their standard DHB bibs."
Pros: Lightweight

Just purchased a couple of these tyres, but can't find a travel direction indication on the tyre. Which way should they be fitted?

It dosen't matter but watch out when reversing you may lose your chain.
