Bibs, without silicone leg grippers...

Any recommendations?

The only shorts I can find without them are from Aerotech Designs (Destination), but can't find any bibs without. The Destination shorts are great. Stay in place, great chamois, and great quality. Need the equivalent in bibs.

The Black Bibs don't have grippers.

Seems good to me. It doesnt rip or anything.
Decently dense- isnt massive and isnt the thinnest.
The regular version is just compression.
The premium doesnt have silicone bands, but tiny dots that dont mark.


Louis Garneau Fit Sensor 2 comes with really good compression and no grippers at all.

Yeah, they are great. Just wished they'd make the Destination shorts in a bib version.

For the moment, Louis Garneau Neo Power Motion are my favorite bibs for long rides. Compression, no leg grippers, and an effective chamois that isn't too thick and breathes well. It's a good time to find them on sale.

Love Castelli with the wide band at the leg opening, typical bibs with grippers are too tight on my tree trunk legs. lol I'll only buy styles that use the wide band at the bottom, much more comfortable.
