Our new Riksettan bib shorts are a great multi-purpose bib for indoor and outdoor cycling. The extra-thin (yet opaque) fabric promotes faster cooling when the ambient temperature is high - for example when indoor training. It’s also just as comfortable to wear when pounding the roads or kicking up gravel.
Our 3-D-tailored Riksettan bibs are designed and constructed using fewer seams and supremely comfortable, soft, thin fabric. Fewer seams mean higher comfort and less possibility of splitting. This bib is made without separate leg cuffs but instead with large silicone grippers. The result is higher comfort on the legs than bibs with cuffs. They also have the bonus side effect of not visibly pinching your legs. So those thighs of steel you’ve worked so hard for will never look better!
Our multi-layer laminated pad comprises sections of varying density that match both the softer and harder parts of the body. Ultra-high density perineal inserts reduce the load on the typical pain points when the body is in the racing position. The ‘super air’ base layer is breathable and quick dry. The upper layer closest to the body is soft and textured to stop slip and maximise comfort where the pad meets the body.
Staying on the theme of comfort, the shoulder straps are wider than usual to spread the load across more fabric and so reduce pressure. The subtle grey Sigr logo on the legs is reflective when illuminated - a little extra safety feature that never hurts!
Riksettan or Turistväg Riksettan is the name of a breath-takingly scenic route from Vaggeryd in the north through Värnamo, Ljungby, and Markaryd, ending up in Örkelljunga in the south. The route is part of the classic national road Riksväg 1 and runs parallel with the E4 and the river Lagan.
