Price Point Ultra Bibshorts
Enjoy an improved riding experience with these Bibshorts by Price Point. They reduce wind resistance, draw away sweat, help prevent rashes, and of course keep you cool increasing your stamina and overall performance. Made of spandex with microsuede chamois lining to ensure a comfortable fit.
I was drawn in by the price... These fit great. Only problem is that the chamois fell apart(internally) just after the 90day return was passed. :-( What ever material they are using inside just came apart...kinda like an old quilt...all bunched up on one side of the chamois. In 30 years of cycling..Ive never seen this before. Normally the elastic leg bands or the short materials will wear out after a couple years...but never the chamois... Going back to the Performance Elite brand...i get a few years out of there bibs... :-)
This is the first pair of bib shorts I ever bought and they're great value for the money. I'm 5'7" 140lbs 32" waist and I went with a large. Size is spot on for me. My one issue with them is that they seem to ride up in the crouch area and pinch a little when I get around the 20 mile zone. Other then that they are pretty comfortable, I can't really compare them to other bibs since these are my first.
First pair of bib shorts for me and they fit great. I am 5' 10" 200 so the shoulder straps hold shorts over my gut while I ride it away. I wore these on a 35 mile challenge and after 4 hours in saddle I was not sore.
My first set of bibs. I'm a tall skinny guy 6'1", the shoulder straps are a little on the short side, but nothing horrendous. I bought them in Medium. The chamois isn't much. It's not dense enough so it really doesn't feel like enough since you sink right through it. It definitely helps, but I'll be trying some other bibs next time. They have held up well. Not a crazy amount of miles since I'm on a mtn bike more. Only thing that hasn't held up is the price point logo. It has flaked off. big whoop.
Decent value bibs, mid-range quality all around. Mine have held up well for a few years of weekly riding. Following what many other reviews stat, the torso runs small, size up or be prepared to stretch out the straps a bit.
Good value shorts if you can get the right size and have a short torso. At 5'7.5", about 145 lbs, 31" waist, and a 36" chest, I normally fit in size small for most brands of shorts (Sugoi, Louis Garneau, Verge, etc.) With these Pricepoint shorts, a medium fits OK for legs (inseam is about 8-9") and is fine for the waist, but is *tight* on the bib straps. I'd almost be tempted to go for a large, but I'll make do with mediums on the bike - but if wearing for an extended period off-bike, not so great. Fabric is mid-weight, OK for hot summers, and the chamois is on the thinner side of mid-range compared to other shorts I've had. Fit apart from what's mentioned is not bad, fairly tight. 4 stars for value, 2.5 stars for the funky short bib straps, and general quality gets 3.0-3.5 stars, for final rating of 3 starts overall.
I'm 5'7.5", 31" waist, 30" legs, around 150lbs, and I normally wear a 36 Short suit. For reference, I tend to fit small bib shorts from most manufacturers (Louis Garneau, Sugoi, Verge, Performance), with Sugoi on the tighter end of fit, and Performance on the looser end of fit. With these shorts in size medium (i.e. I've sized up by one) - the straps are TIGHT, definitely tighter than on my Sugoi's. Not fully stretched tight, but I can definitely feel it - I'll need to hope that they stretch out a bit with a few washses. Inseam length is good on me, probably 8-9", and thigh circumference is middle of the road compared to all other bib shorts I've had. Chamois is about average, not the best but not bare bones, and while the quality of the stiches are decent, the positioning of stiching isn't perfect - Assos shorts these are not. Bib straps are made of the same fabric as main short panels, which I'd say is a mid-weight fabric. 4 stars for value and 8 panel construction, 3 stars due to stitching and ho-hum chamois, and 2 stars for the weird short straps, for a final star rating of 3.5. Bottom line: size up by one if you have a short torso, size up by two if you have a long torso. Beware!
I ordered these after reading the two reviews about how small/short these run. I'm all of 5'8" and figured that the large would fit me perfectly. When I put them on - they were small as advertised (shoulders) but usable. It's an inexpensive bib, so it's about what I expected. Anyone taller than me, you should consider an XL or different bib all together. Hope this helps!
Im even taller, at 6'3", but I foolishly decided to get an XL anyway (I mean, for this price, you can't get any other bib shorts on the market). The straps are much too short. It felt like they were made for someone who is as tall as they are round. If you're getting bib shorts, I would recommend going to a LBS and trying some on, to make sure they fit, although there won't be any for this cheap. Also, the chamois and pad looked pretty good, although I never actually rode with these on.
I agree with Shawn. I am 6'1" and 200lbs. The straps are too short and they cut into my shoulders. Other than that I am pleased with the quality.
I am 6'2 ~180 ordered size XL. Bib straps are for someone with a very short torso. Most of my height is in my legs. I am going to sew a few inches extra fabric into the bib straps so I can wear these. I'd call the XL a "Large Short" where I actually need a "Large Tall". The shorts part fits fine, good leg length (not too short inseam). Decent chamois. Plain nylon lycra, 6oz weight fabric or so, kinda thin which may reduce how long they'll last. 8 panel design.
