Sugoi Women's RS Pro Bib Short and RS Training Jersey


$119 and $80 (respectively), Backcountry.com

The draw: Quick pit stops

If you prefer the comfort of bib shorts but hate the hassle of multiple bathroom breaks during long rides, these bibs offer a smart solution. Each strap has a buckle closure to get you in and out in a snap. The chamois felt robust but not overwhelming, and the upper straps had a barely there feel. Our size 4/6 tester wore a medium and found the leg grippers to be a little tight. Similarly, the arm openings in the pro fit jersey will feel comfier to riders with thinner arms.
