Giro Halter Bib

Giro Ride Halter BibLadies of the peloton, let out a collective, “Oh duh!” as Giro releases their new Ride Halter Bib. Designed to keep you comfortable on long rides, the halter top makes nature breaks so much easier than with traditional bibs. Instead of having to remove your jersey, simply pull the strap from around your neck and you’re good to go (Giro’s joke, not mine 😉 ). If you’ve been sticking to shorts because they’re easier to remove, welcome to the fantastic comfort and muffin-top reduction that bib shorts have to offer.

If you’re like me and you have a mediocre relationship with halter tops–they look great, but they dig into the back of your neck–Giro claims that the fit and compression along your hips and torso keeps the halter from pulling and creating pressure spots. The bibs feature a full mesh upper that covers your chest and an 8″ inseam for mid-thigh coverage, unless you’re short like me, in which case they’re full-thigh coverage.

At $150, these bibs are made with Italian fabrics and super cool features like leg bands that don’t dig into your skin. Plus, you can stow a few extras like keys or cash in the “secret” back pocket, which adds to the versatility of the bibs for matching them with different types of tops. A women’s specific CyTechâ„¢ chamois should offer long-distance comfort, but, since we haven’t tested these, we can’t really comment on the fit and feel. Currently only available in black, it would be great to see Giro add a few options to the palette, so here’s hoping this trend catches on and gives us a few more coordination options.

If you’ve been scared to try out bibs, these might be your ticket out of the short club. Plus, a 60-day guarantee lets you give them a try without worrying that you’ll hate them.

  1. I’ve worn my Giro halter bib shorts on a 65 mile and 85 mile ride. Nature breaks were super easy–I can get the strap off over my helmet. I was also concerned about the comfort of the strap when I decided to buy them. I didn’t notice it digging into my neck at all. I think they are a bit easier to deal with wearing a full zip jersey but have worn them with a 3/4 zip one. I will buy them again.
