Best Bibs for $200 or Less
Not unanimous pick, but the GS Panache 13 Women’s Bib Short eked out victory by receiving the nod from two of four testers.
Kate: GS Panache 13 Women’s Bib Short — Want a bib short where dependable performance trumps advanced female-specific design and flashy packaging? Panache offers a high-quality short without the super-premium price.
Lisa: Primal Elita Women’s Helix Bib Shorts — Even though these bibs were under $200 the material still felt and rode as if it could have been the most expensive. If Primal makes a few design tweaks to this bib, shorter, narrower straps and a slightly wider chamois, they would fit me perfectly and I think they could pose a real threat to win this test in future years.
Elizabeth: Capo Cipressa Bibshort 2.0 — I love that my favorites are less than $200! These are a great bib at a great price.
Liz: GS Panache 13 Women’s Bib Short — With nice fabrics, a flattering design, a great fit, and a more affordable price, these shorts have become a staple of my cycling wardrobe.
