Last week we got excited at the news that Aldi’s cycling collection is coming back bigger than ever. Hitting your local supermarket on Sunday Mat 21st, their range is causing quite a stir, and for good reason. We got our hands on some of the items that’ll be in stores and had a closer look and what you can expect.
First up is the new women’s bib-shorts which are constructed from a lightweight polyester and elastane blend. The mesh straps and body keeps airflow circulating, whilst remaining soft to the skin and against the shoulders.
The legs offer a light compression and the material is thinner than what you would expect from regular cycling brand, and yet there are a number of features which really makes these bib-shorts worth a second look.
Reflective detailing on the back of the legs offer improved visibility in low light conditions, and silicone leg cuffs offer soft grip against the skin which keeps them from riding up. The Italian made chamois pad is super soft, anti-bacterial with comfortable gel inserts. Aldi advises these shorts are ideal for up to 4 hours in the saddle.
These bib-shorts will be available from Sunday, May, 21st in sizes small, medium and large for £14.99. These bib-shorts are perfect for more grassroots riders where the cycling addiction hasn’t yet cleared out your bank account. They’re also great as an emergency/backup pair of bib-shorts should your usual ones be dirty, worn or god forbid – lost!
