These stripped down bib shorts from Madison offer excellent warm weather performance by using a stretch woven, super-light fabric, and a compression fit with input from the Madison-Genesis pro team. That makes the RoadRace Light shorts a great option for hot days in the saddle.
When you first pull the shorts on, the close, race-focused fit is immediately noticeable – these shorts are cut for use on the bike, with the fabric panels pre-curved to match the riding position. That ensures a close, comfortable fit – boosted by the soft-feel fabric – and helps reduce any bunching of material when riding. The front of the shorts scoop low and the sides are higher to cover the hips and lower back, again contributing to the super comfortable fit. The fabric is mildly compressive, too, and while it’s certainly light, it isn’t especially thin or revealing.
