Strengths:    Great fabric
KISS pad is the best
Comfy straps

Weaknesses:    Euros are tiny people

Bottom Line:   
I love the feel of these bib shorts, but damn, those Euros measure small. I'm 6'3" and lean 215#, so I consider myself to be an XL. The leg grippers were so tight, along with the leg cut, that my skin began to redden and blanch 10 miles into the first ride.

The fabric has a very cool feel and that KISS pad is simply the best I've ridden with. I had it on another set of bib knickers, which were also on the small side. The straps were also very comfy and wide.

Strengths:    They look great and make heads turn!! The lycra fits really well and is not loose in the wrong places. The pad is also comfortable

Weaknesses:    The silver version can become a see through if wet - so not good in the rain.

Bottom Line:   
These shorts are Hot.

Strengths:    Comfy lycra

Weaknesses:    At this price, none really

Bottom Line:   
The Dome is a fine bibshort, with extremely comfortable lycra and a surprisingly comfortable pad. It fits as well as my PY2 VT bibshort, and although the pad is thicker and wider, it works very well for any day-to-day riding. Not the most stylish bib out there, but good enough.
