We’re proud to unveil the new Pro SL Bibshort II, the much anticipated successor to our game-changing Pro SL Bibshort. Available with two leg length options, to complement the revolutionary choice of three pad widths introduced with the original, our new gold standard bibshort boasts a pared back aesthetic that is both sleek and stylish. Built on a foundation of high-quality Italian power lycra, treated with coldblack® technology to reduce heat and provide factor 50 UV protection, the Pro SL Bibshort II is the irresistible sequel to our best-selling bibshort. Five star reviews and a raft of ‘best in test’ reports from a salivating press convinced us to make evolution the focus of the Pro SL Bibshort II, having revolutionised the market by offering a degree of customisation to an off-the-shelf solution never previously witnessed.
Our radical 700-series pad, cut by computer in a Continuously Variable Profile (CVP), remains the benchmark in engineered comfort, and is the cornerstone of the Pro SL Bibshort II. The pad’s gentle contours are the result of our collaboration with pressure mapping experts gebioMized® and painstaking research with the riders of Movistar Team, among others. Its smooth, rounded contours end in a sealed edge perimeter that provides a neat transition to the Italian power lycra. Another Italian innovation, the pad’s flame laminated, open-cell foam core, layered in a ‘sandwich’ construction, absorbs the sustained pressure of even the longest ride.
Severin Zotter, who used the 700-series pad to win the 2015 Race Across America, described the original Pro SL Bibshort as “perfect”. If our challenge in developing the Pro SL Bibshort II has been to enhance perfection, it is not one we have shrunk from. Our 90-day comfort guarantee speaks volumes for our confidence in our new flagship bibshort.
Every best seller deserves a sequel, and the Pro SL Bibshort II offers a compelling follow-up to one of the most important tech stories in the recent history of cycling apparel. An understated aesthetic, epitomised by the minimalist, raw edge hems, makes the Pro SL Bibshort II an ideal companion to key pieces in the new SS17 Pro SL Collection, such as the Pro SL Jersey and Pro SL Lite Gilet.
The radical, game changing outputs of collaboration with experts in fields as diverse as aerodynamics (Drag2Zero), 3D body scanning (Human Solutions), and impact protection (Koroyd), are testament to Endura's philosophy of Renegade Progress time and again. Our work in developing the Pro SL Bibshort II, with sources as varied as gebioMized® and Movistar Team, offers further evidence of a restless desire to improve and enhance, even when the design at hand is universally admired. Introducing the Pro SL Bibshort II. Making the best, better.
The Pro SL Bibshort (RRP £119.99) is available in 3 pad widths, 2 leg lengths and size XS to XXL.
