We’ve just received from our friends at Road Holland some of their bib shorts. Like of all of their products, they are named after somewhere in Holland. This time it’s the small city of Bolsward.
Like many of the new products we sell we’ve been out testing these in the Peak District for a few hundred kilometres just to make sure that they live up to the hype. We can say that these do. As with all Road Holland products, the Bolsward short’s are understated, yet do what they are designed to do extremely well.
Everyone wants to know about the pad when it comes to shorts and Road Holland are using the best available. Designed for extreme long distance riding, the pad comes from Italy and features seamless technology for incredible comfort. Special yarns and a perforated design eliminate friction, increase air circulation, and give the pad a permanent anti-bacterial effect.
12 panel construction means the shorts give where they need to and not where they don’t. A super strong 80% polyester / 20% spandex blend provides maximum compression to keep muscles at their best. At the end of each leg is a gripper that is just taut enough to provide support but not so much that it will give you the dreaded sausage look. Bib straps feature an ultra light mesh to be as minimalistic feeling as possible.
The design is reminiscent of a classic European racing kit – a small logo and simple stripe. The deep black color all the way around ensures you’ve got the perfect accompaniment to any colour jersey you wish to wear.
The Bolsward bib is available in sizes XS to XXXL. Like all Road Holland products Bolsward bib shorts are made in the good old US of A.
