You've collected the perfect protective wardrobe of thermal jackets, gloves, shoe covers, and leg warmers and are ready to tackle winter base miles, until you actually get out there and realize you've missed an important piece of the puzzle your shorts. Regular bib shorts leave a rather large patch of sensitive skin vulnerable to the chill, and just won't cut it when the temperatures plunge. Avoid frostbite and frozen nethers with the new Craft Men's Shield Bib Shorts, boasting cozy, wind-blocking protection for any winter ride adventure.
Like the rugged yet remarkably fluffy pallas cat, these bib shorts are built to weather the winter with ease. The windproof and water-repellant Body Control fabric in these shorts provides comfortable support with four-way stretch while fending off the elements with cloud-like brushed thermal softness. Craft adds silicone print at the leg bands to prevent slipping and avoid the unappealing pinching often found with standard elastic bands, resulting in clean lines and full-coverage warmth when paired with a good set of leg warmers.
The Shield Bib Shorts include Craft's top-end Infinity C1 chamois, featuring a seamless design that nearly eliminates friction. Its lazer-cut, multi-thickness, high-density foam provides impact protection while perforations provide ventilation to move moisture away from the body and prevent clammy chamois time. Craft incorporates wide swaths of reflective print across the leg bands and additional reflective detailing for a stylish look that drastically increases visibility to motorists in low-light and dreary winter conditions.
