Good fit and plenty of pad

My first Funnier product and so far, impressed. I wanted bib shorts for longer rides (40 miles +) but having ordered other more well known makes, their pads didn't inspire me. The Funnier bib arrived and immediately could see a thicker pad with comfort zones. Took on a 35 mile ride and very comfortable. I'm 6ft 2 and 110 kg. The XXL was a good fit for me with good length in body and leg gripped worked well. Very happy.

Best bibs I have tried

After trying a few different shorts and 3 bibs, these are the best by far in terms of comfort and feel. At a great price from Tredz with the usual excellent customer service. So pleased with my purchase I got a 2nd pair.

Seem OK

Only used on one ride, bit fit / comfort seemed superb. Happy to review again once the Sportive season has tested them. Tempted to buy a 2nd pair at this price. Spoilt only by poor service from Tredz (on this occasion)

Big enough for a big lad

I'm 6ft 2" and 120kgs and these shorts fitted great. I'm a 40inch waist and bought the XXL. Comfy pad and really quite nicely finished, straps are long enough and don't cut in.

Surprised at how good they are

I needed a pair of shorts for riding to and from work, so didn't want to spend a fortune. I was surprised at how well made they are, they also have a great, comfortable pad which is often what lets the cheaper shorts down. I'm starting to wonder why I have spent so much money on bib shorts in the past, these easily compete with top brands.

A Good Purchase

I have been out cycling for a few hours and these bib shorts are very comfortable to wear, the padded seat performed better than any of my other shorts. I think I shall be buying more "FUNKIER" cycle clothing in the future.

First trial

This is my first pair of bib shorts, Just tried them on a very short 6 mile ride to give them a try, they seem to be ok. I will give another review when I have been out for several hours and had a chance to test them properly

Shorts Guide

Why do I need cycle specific shorts?

If you've ever spent a long time in the saddle you'll know how uncomfortable wearing casual shorts can be. They chafe, fit poorly and offer little mobility. Cycling shorts make all the difference.

Padded Chamois

Most cycling shorts come with a padded insert known as a chamois. This insert relieves pressure in your sensitive areas and stops numbness.

Anatomical Cut

Bike shorts are anatomically designed, often with a longer and higher cut at the back for when you’re in a riding position. This means you have a far more comfortable ride.

Lycra shorts will be snug with some stretch for aero performance and mobility. Casual baggies offer maximum freedom of movement for demanding trail riding.

Technical Fabrics

Cycle shorts use performance fabrics such as lycra and nylon.

Lycra is quick wicking to help transfer moisture away from the body.

Nylon is bombproof for durable riding.

These fabrics offer some stretch for added mobility and flat stitching is smooth against your skin to reduce chafing.

Added features such as Teflon coating or Ripstop improve durability.

What types of shorts are available?

Lycra shorts | Ideal for road cycling

Lycra shorts (and bib shorts) offer the best comfort in the saddle. You wear these directly next to your skin – no underwear.

Lycra is quick drying and worn close against the skin meaning the chamois stays in place as you ride.

Leg grippers also help to keep the shorts in place.

Bib shorts | Ideal for road cycling

Bib shorts are similar to standard waist high lycra shorts. However, you also get supporting shoulder braces.

As there is no waist line to dig in to your stomach they are more comfortable. Bibs are pulled taught ensuring the chamois stays where you want it.

Baggy shorts | Ideal for mountain biking

Baggy shorts are popular because of the more casual style which also keeps your modesty in check.

Baggy shorts are more durable with fabrics designed not to rip and tear from branches or debris.

Slip knee pads under these shorts for extra protection. Plenty of pockets are ideal for stashing tools and nutrition.

Not all baggy shorts come with a pad but you can easily fit a pair of padded undershorts underneath.

Undershorts | Ideal for mountain biking

Undershorts are thin liners with an added chamois pads. Slip these under baggy or casual shorts extra comfort and protection in the saddle.
