First impressions: SCOTT women’s cycle clothing range

Straight out of the post bag, it’s clear to see that the Shadow EVO bib shorts vary from the norm. In terms of design, the bibs resemble more of a tri-suit, with its integrated sports bra built complete with elasticated band round the torso, attached to the bibs top, and racer back mesh strap.

To combat overheating, SCOTT have included mesh paneling around the torso section to connect the bra to the waist of the shorts, although we guess the top section could act as a base layer in cooler months.

Moving inside, the chamois incorporates what SCOTT describe as their newest technologies. Essentially, what we can gather is that the pad varies in thickness, with a ‘Y-shape’ section down the centre being the densest. To be honest, there’s not a great deal of padding, especially at the front – possibly to prevent bunching – so we’re interested to see how these do in test.

Down to the legs; the lycra used doesn’t feel all that thick, so they may end up riding up the thighs and not offering enough compression, but we’ll give them the benefit of the doubt in testing. There’s also an elastic gripper band used at the hem, with integrated silicon strip around the inside to help keep them in place.
