Seriously impressive performance for the price - shorts that'll serve you well on all but the longest rides.

The Caratti Sport Bib Shorts are the budget offering from the UK company, but perform far better than their price tag might suggest. They manage to combine an effective pad, really good fit throughout and an excellent cut.

Great bang for your buck, at £40 these are a great investment, even if it is just to save your more expensive bib shorts for your weekend rides.

Overall rating: 9/10
