The Santini Women's Bib-short Guide - Find your perfect fit

Chamois
Otherwise known as the internal padded panels inside your knicks, the chamois offers a lot of relief where it’s most needed! Santini has invested significant design and technology into their chamois. With the Santini sisters at the helm of this business, it is no surprise that women’s apparel gets the same level of respect and research as the men’s. The Santini women’s bib short guide refers to ‘seatpads’; these are the specific types of chamois available from the brand. Eco WMax, Gil Evo and C3W are some of the terms you can expect to see.

Material
You thought all knicks came in Lycra? Welcome to a whole new world of cycling apparel fibre technology. Again, Santini has not skimped when investing heavily into the science of cycling apparel material. With knicks undoubtedly being the most essential item of clothing you can wear on the bike, it’s no surprise you have options. The Santini women’s bib short guide refers to fabrics such as fitter stretch woven, high-compression, Thunderbike Power; each is carefully selected to get the very best out of the knicks for your cycling comfort and performance.

Aerodynamics
Even knicks can contribute to your speed and comfort when on the bike. The Santini women’s bib short guide grades each knick’s aerodynamics as high, medium/high or medium.

Breathability
When working hard on the bike, you want knicks that breathe. This refers to the apparel’s ability to keep air circulating through the clothing so that your skin remains as dry and regulated as possible. The Santini women’s bib short guide details the knick’s level of breathability so you can decide what is best for you.

Braces
Santini bib braces for women are designed to sit comfortably on the outer side of your breasts. You have two types of braces - elasticated seamless or mesh. Although both offer excellent breathability, the seamless braces do lie flatter on the skin due to the surface construction.

Temperature
Going back to the technology behind the material, the Santini women’s bib short guide recommends the ideal temperature for cycling in each item so you can make an informed choice depending on the seasons in which you cycle.

Santini women’s bib shorts guide frequently asked questions Here are some of the most common questions we receive from our female cycling customers:

What is the difference between cycling bibs and shorts?
Cycling bibs refer to knicks that provide the shorts and braces in one piece. In contrast, as the name suggests, shorts are knicks only, without the braces.

What length should bib shorts be?
It is a personal preference usually influenced by the type of cycling you do (triathletes will typically select a short that finishes higher up the leg), the weather and the trends at the time.

How do you know if bib shorts fit?
The bib short will feel snug but not restrictive. Braces will not be cutting into the skin; the ends of the short will sit flush to your skin but without restricting circulation.

Do you wear anything underneath bibs or shorts?
Again this comes down to personal preferences, but for the most part, cyclists tend to wear cycling bib shorts without anything underneath. That said, some cyclists may opt to wear baggier shorts outside of their cycling bibs.
