Quality & Comfort
The quality of these shorts is what you would expect from an independent brand providing high quality apparel. The shorts have been designed specifically for women and are made with a good choice of fabrics (120 grams Lycra® Sport yarn), which feels great on the skin and provides good support all round. The stitching is well put together and the panelling is well designed for sitting close to the skin without any folding or bunching of the material, which is what we expect to see from a pair of Italian made shorts.
The chamois is a Fiandre HP pad covered by X-tract fabric that ensures breathability. It certainly feels comfortable and provides good flexibility to move with your every position. The pad thickness and density should provide all day comfort in a variety of temperatures and riding conditions.
One of the features we love is the black upper mesh straps, white is often renowned for discolouration when washing again and again. But these straps enhance the shorts, providing a high quality classy look to the bib shorts.
Some nice attention to detail are the reflective tabs on the rear of the legs. The leg cuffs feature the Stomp the Pedal branding and have a large silicone gripper to them, keeping the legs in place and preventing any bunching or riding up your legs.
The fabric choice provides good support while keeping you cool during riding. Because of the comfort of these shorts, you are going to get the maximum performance available. The chamois is well made, providing good comfort and stability, as well as breathability to keep you cool and comfortable during your ride.
These shorts are very well made with great fabrics, the seat area looks to be made with high quality Lycra which will provide many years of riding in the saddle without wearing out or developing holes. The chamois also looks to be suitable for tens of thousands of miles in the saddle, with a great thickness which maintains its shape and comfort during riding.
As long as you follow the washing care guide, these shorts will stand being washed again and again… let’s face it, when they become your new favourite shorts, they will need to be able to stand up to repeated washing! The stitching is of a good quality, and is tight without any loose threads or potential for split seams while riding.
Only time will tell, but we can see by the quality of materials that these shorts will last ride after ride.
Size and Fit
Sizing is spot on with the size guide available on their website. There’s no need to size up or down to get the perfect fit, follow their size guide exactly and you will find the perfect size for you.
The straps fit well with just the right amount of tension without putting any strain on your shoulders. The leg length is just right for riding comfort, and the bottom/waist area fits well without leaving any loose fabric, or causing any rippling around the creases.
Value for Money
The Signature Logo bib shorts are not the cheapest we have seen, but also not the most expensive either. They are currently on sale for £100 GBP which is a lot of money for your average cyclist, but then if you appreciate unique apparel that’s both different and higher quality than many mainstream brands, you are not going to regret buying the Signature Logo bib shorts and wearing them with pride.
However, when it comes to value, you are getting what you pay for… High quality fabrics, comfortable chamois, women specific fit, great design, unique looks!
