Whether you’re racing in The Giro or training in your hometown, the Capo Women’s Cipressa Bib Short brings pro-worthy features to the saddle. Carbon Lycra, HG Lycra, and Coldblack regulate your temperature so you stay comfortable hour after hour.
I have always been a huge Capo fan but wore their men's bibs. I was excited to try their women's bib even though the chamois seemed a lot thinner. I actually love the chamois and think it stays in place a lot better. These bibs are VERY short! It may be less of an issue for someone with short legs. The only thing I don't like about the bibs is the mesh upper as I prefer to wear a base layer and this creates an added layer. Plus, I usually tuck one of my headphone ear pieces into by bibs and I can't do so given the entry point is now up on my chest vs. down at my waist. I would highly recommend these bibs for the fit and comfort. I also have fund that you can get many years of wear out of the Capo brand. It's very durable.
It's the most comfortable chamois I've had out of all the top brands. Love the mesh upper, keeps you cool. The only thing I'm not a fan of is the wide band of lycra at the bottom of the leg - personal preference is no bands as when you're short, it makes you look shorter! Overall great bib.
I love these shorts, nice thick spandex, great size and placement of the chamois. I wasn't sure about the full coverage on the upper body section but it turn out to be great. Finding a good placement for the straps on traditional bibs for women can be awkward, no need here.
Was initially skeptical but went for them anyway. First time I wore a bib and now I know why all the men love them! They fit like nothing else and are always in perfect position. I will never go back to wearing 'shorts' after wearing these.
In most respects, I love these bibs. I'm not super wild about the "tank top" style upper design, since it's harder to wriggle out of as needed on the road, but I knew it would be going in. However, the chamois is great, and the fabric is really nice. They're comfortable and not overly bulky in the chamois. They look pretty pro as well, except...
They are way too short and ride up like crazy. I am 5'6 and very slight, so I picked up the xs model, which fit perfectly except that they're short. This wouldn't be too bad if they stayed put, but they don't. It's too bad, because I like them, but I don't know that I'll be able to ride with them, since it's embarassing!
I don't like the full mesh top. I can't get to my HR monitor to adjust it if necessary. There is a seam on the inside of the legs that start to rub my thigh after a few miles in the saddle. The banding on the leg is great - doesn't cut off circulation and stays in place without the annoying grippers. The chamois is good. All in all, I prefer the Louis Garneau Mondo Bib Short. Fits true to size
