Descente Aero-X Bib Shorts
Descente has kitted champion cyclists for decades and their quality and craftsmanship is off-the-charts awesome. Their Aero-X bib shorts unsurprisingly have been meticulously thought out to provide you with the ultimate riding experience. Push/pull moisture management in the fabric, cross grain cutting, plus an exquisite Stealth chamois equates to on-the-bike satisfaction like no other.
  • Aero-X fabric keeps you dry with a hydrophilic nylon on the outer layer that pulls moisture to the surface plus a hydrophobic polyester on the inside that pushes moisture outward
  • Monocoque molded Stealth chamois is pre-shaped for a perfect fit and uses variable thickness, a perforated finish and an antimicrobial application to eliminate pressure points, absorb odors and enhance breathability
  • 8-panel design provides the right amount of compression for hardworking muscles
  • Cross grain fabric cutting ensures shorts don't ride up
  • Flatlock seams with contrasting side seams eliminate chafing
  • Silicone leg grippers feel smooth against your skin and keep shorts comfortably in place
  • 64% Nylon/17% Polyester/19% Lycra Spandex construction

Weird pad placement. Not usable

      Comments about Descente Aero-X Bib Shorts:

      The fit is good, but the pad is unacceptable. It was sewn in a good 3 inches back from proper placement, leaving my goodies up against lycra in the front and my ischial tuberosities (sit bones) in front of the main padding. The main padding sits high up the butt and never makes contact with the saddle. Not sure what they were thinking - everything else was anatomically correct. I'm returning them.

        Adequate for daily training

        By Okla Cyclist

        from Oklahoma City, OK

        About Me Avid Cyclist

        Verified Buyer

        Pros

        • Comfortable While Riding
        • Good For 30-40 Mile Rides
        • Good Padding
        • Lightweight

        Cons

        • Durability Tbd
        • Front Pad Is Too Low

        Best Uses

        • Road Biking

        Comments about Descente Aero-X Bib Shorts:

        The front pad of the chamois is a bit low and only a thin layer of fabric covers your privates. Ok if riding solo. In the saddle, the protection is fine and comfortable with good padding. I've done 45 mile rides but not tested the bibs beyond that distance. No chaffing or irritation and rear padding is good. These are fine for training rides for now....we'll see how they perform in a distance ride. For the price, pretty good bibs.

        Nice but run small/short

              Comments about Descente Aero-X Bib Shorts:

              Nice shorts, but decidedly smaller than my other Descente ("classic") bib shorts and other brands. I am 5'9", 160 lbs, very much a "medium' in most clothes including shorts. These are little snug, but the problem is the bib is not long enough, to the point that the tension makes my shoulders sore. So I am returning them. I would recommend the medium if you are under 5'8" only. That said, these are a good deal if they fit you, and properly-fitting bib shorts are much more comfortable than standard shorts.

              Comments about Descente Aero-X Bib Shorts:

              OK shorts for club rides. Pad becomes uncomfortable on 30 plus mile rides. Bib is tight and constrictive, not enough give.

                  Always wore Descente because of fit & padding. Short material was good but the padding just seemed wrong. Didn't cover any frontal area. Imitation Descente ot the padding was sewn into shorts wrong.

                    switched to bib shorts, these fit as well as the descents aero shorts, and I dont have to worry about my jersey riding up my back! very comfortable, as expected from descente aero, the padding is perfect. true to size, not super tight, good value.

                            I don't review products often but the Decente bib is a nice product at a good price - a very good everyday bib. The material is quality, the sizing is accurate and the fit is comfy. These bibs have traditional style grippers that may not be quite as comfortable as the new style elastic-less grippers but they do keep leg warmers up much better. The chamois is good - not as good as the two piece chamois of an Assos or some other premium quality/priced bib - but good for everyday riding up to 3hrs. Chamois placement is good and stiching and edges are well finished and don't irritate. I plan to buy another pair.
