"Very comfortable"

Comfort, that was my first initial though on the new Podium bib. The Compression fit around the legs with the help of a large gripper band was exactly what I was looking for. The shoulder bands is very stretchy although they also sit very tight to make sure the chamois sits firmly. The soft fabric on the Chamois also helps a lot to avoid chaffing. Overall First Ascent was able to set a new standard in there bib range, I would definitely recommend this bib to anyone from newbie to experience rider.

"A complete next level."

The Podium bib has a snug fitted feel with the stretch of the lycra and wide leg gripper. This bib offers more than enough comfort for longer days in the saddle with the 3D chamois. The combination of moisture wicking lycra and UPF50+ sun protection makes it the ideal option for summer rides in South Africa. The comfort of the seamless shoulder straps are amazing. This is a complete next level of bib short all over.

"Good job!"

Been riding in the First Ascent Podium bib for the past 6 months. Fairly tight fit but once i'm in the bib it sits flush against my body which is great for avoiding chafe. The chamois is what impresses me most and the bib really delivers on the longer rides. Nice job guys!
