"Usually buy castelli but wanted to try a different brand. I've been disappointed with Dhb products in the past, but this does what it says on the tin. Sizing is accurate, looks good and good access to back pockets through the slits on either side."
"I purchased size medium, being 68kg and 5 ft 10 in. I use them on the trainer , comfortable fit, not sure the pad would stand up to more than an hour and half ride though. They have a long back to the short so would be fine for commute to work, your back would not get exposed to the elements. No draw string around waist.
Lightweight performance race gloves with a gel padded palm for shock absorption and vibration damping on long distance road rides. A mesh panel back and ventilated palm provide cooling airflow and breathability in hot conditions.
"Just purchased second pair, first pair two and a half years old, but still use. Size is accurate, gel padding still good and washing machine friendly. Tried a pair of Lizzardskins, rubbish took ages to dry and after two months they ripped apart taking them off. so went back to Gore."
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Good Fit
Cons: Limited Color Choices

Alé Classic Stelvio Bib Shorts
The Stelvio is a classic mountain pass, snaking it's way up to 2,757m in the Northern Italian Alps. Alé, being an Italian company, have created the Stelvio bib shorts celebrating this iconic mountain road
"Looks good, first ride was a three hour ride, pad looks this but is very comfortable. Only moan is the mad sizing. I'm 5 feet 11 inches , medium build, had to order an "extra large". Ordered the matching jersey also had get an extra large."
The Mortirolo is a classic climb, considered by some as the toughest climb in Italy and certainly a climb to be conquered. Alé as an Italian company, have created the Mortirolo Short Sleeve Jersey celebrating this iconic mountain.
A protective wind and waterproof jersey built from the latest innovation in fabric technology; Windstopper X-Lite Plus. Originally developed by the Cervelo Test Team, the Gabba jersey was and still is a breakthrough in comfort and wet weather protection
"Purchased after looking at all the similar brands, great reviews. Have worn this with a long sleeved and short sleeved Craft base layer. At first it feels your under dressed but after ten minutes warm up it's really comfortable.
Great breathability and wind proof, have not been caught in the rain yet though. I do carry a rain cape just in case. I'm a fan of Castelli, so sizing is always an issue, I'm a UK medium but Large fits nicely, just right. Will use this Autumn, Winter and Spring time.
Two cons, expensive , but get what you pay for I suppose.
When the back pockets are full the bib saver catches the saddle when you stand up."
Pros: Durable, Attractive, Comfortable, High Quality, Lightweight
"I've worn other leading brand base layers but this is the best on the bike. I'm a medium and fit it tight, but not restrictive or uncomfortable. I wore on a fifty miler under a good breathable Castelli, it kept me warm and was dry when I took it off. First time if bought Craft, will buy again."
The Velocissimo GT bib shorts offer exceptional fit and comfort thanks to the 10 panel construction, Kiss3 seatpad, Giro3 leg grippers and the Affinity Lycra. An everyday short that stands up against competition way above its cost.
What's the difference between the Velocissimo and the Velocissimo Due bibshorts?
The Velocissmo where slightly short in the leg, didn't feel right on me.
