Benefits & Features
SKINS C400 men's compression bib shorts are more than a cushion for your bum.
SKINS C400 is the only high performance range to use in-motion measurement to define the correct level of compression needed during activity. This improves circulation, getting more oxygen-rich blood to your muscles and reducing lactic acid build-up.
Based on 400 key fitting points, items in the SKINS C400 range are cut for on-bike comfort and improved core body control and power, as well as less post-exercise muscle soreness.
C400 bib shorts feature the Elastic Interface® Technology Multi-D Anatomic Carbonium chamois. This expands and contracts with every pedal stroke, following your motion and eliminating friction. High-density foam helps relieve pressure in the perineal area for maximum comfort, without compromising on breathability.
So you'll have more power and comfort as you take your legs to their limits.
Sizing - This is different in the 400 series to the Cycle Pro, I needed to go up a size.
Leg grippers, I maybe out of the loop here, as I commute, but there are none on the C400s. I find that this means the legs ride up and cause the shorts to bunch up around my groin. This means more bare leg is exposed, which is generally OK, but with temperatures falling, is less comfortable! I find that I am constantly pulling the legs back down, but they just ride up again. This is a slight issue when getting off the bike at the end of the ride, as one needs to adjust things to get comfortable!
They are a more snug fit than the Cycle Pro bibs, the back panel in particular has no real stretch.
However, the quality of manufacture seems good, the chamois is comfortable (larger than the Cycle Pro) and the wicking works well.
Your C-400 bibs are the gold standard in my book. Absolute comfort matched with outstanding performance. Knowing that I have a number of cycling road races this season, I'm very happy to have those bibs.
