Our patent pending halterneck bib shorts are selling like hot cakes! It has taken a while for female cyclists to wake up to the idea of using a halter strap for their bib shorts rather than male style bib shorts with conventional “braces”, but the revolution is now officially underway. In case you have not yet heard, using a halterneck strap allows the shorts to be pulled down at the back without removing the jersey (or removing the strap from round the back of your neck), which means it is a whole lot easier to go to the loo.
We have a series of deals set up or under negotiation with some major brands that are using our invention under license, so don’t be surprised to see more and more halterneck women’s bib shorts on the market. Our most recent client is Gripe from Korea and here are some photos of our halter bib shorts in action:
You can see that we use a thick and very stretchy strap that goes round the back of your neck so that you do not feel the strap pulling down on your neck when you are riding. The strap is so stretchy that when you want to pull the shorts down, you can just crouch over to help release the tension on the straps and then the shorts will just pull down at the back. We also use laser cut silicone coated leg grippers and a foam injected chamois, to make the comfort of the shorts complete!
