With the Sportful Ltd Shield Bib Shorts, you have the highest level of performance cycling shorts but with the added advantage of road-rash protection built-in. When you're going all out, they've got you covered.
When you’re riding hard, pushing the envelope of tyre grip and speed, you may find yourself hitting the ground. And as you slide along the tarmac you’ll be glad of the HardCord protection across the side of the Ltd Shield Bib Shorts. This tough CORDURA® fabric works to prevent the sting of road rash when you’re involved in a crash. Get up. Dust yourself down. Check your bike is good. And keep riding.
But they’re not just protective. The Ltd Shield Bib Shorts are also highly refined road race shorts too. Compressive and highly flexible fabrics ensure just the right amount of muscle support and ease of movement. They’re breathable too, with microperforated bib straps to ensure sweat has an easy escape route. Smooth raw-cut leg endings provide a streamlined fit and secure grip to prevent them from riding up. Reflective logos add a touch of extra visibility for your early morning or late evening training sessions.
Crashing is no fun. And to add to the pain you’ll see your best shorts ripped to shreds too. Hardcord aims to lessen the pain of crashing. Using CORDURA® fabric, this technology has been tried and tested to resist abrasions and tearing during a crash. Based on certified tests, Sportful shorts are the only ones to resist a 45 km/h crash. Faster just got safer too.
Total Comfort Pro Seat Pad
Inside the Shield Shorts is the TC Pro seat pad, Sportful’s ‘racing pad’. Sportful uses 15mm Urethane foam, making the pad suited to riders who want support but prefer a thinner feel. You get incredible comfort on the saddle but with a touch less bulk and added freedom for smooth and powerful pedalling. Perforations guarantee better ventilation and quick-drying performance. From intense interval session to all-day racing epics you'll enjoy support in all the right places.
The Sportful story began in 1946, when the Cremonese family opened a knitwear factory named Manifattura Valcismon. Over the years, production evolved toward the manufacture of high-quality underwear. The real turning point came in 1972, when Dr. Giordano Cremonese, who had taken over the management of the business from his parents, wanted to participate in the newly established Marcialonga cross-country ski race but did not have appropriate clothing. He decided to use the family business to produce the necessary apparel and what had begun as a personal need grew into an unprecedented success. This was the beginning of the Sportful brand. In 1985, seeing the great demand for technical cycling apparel and encouraged by the company's remarkable success in cross-country skiing, Sportful embarked on a new adventure - Cycling. It wasn’t long before they were involved at the highest level, equipping teams such as Alfa Lum, Ariostea and Mapei, the latter dominating the classics throughout the 90s. Some of their greatest achievements came when the Italian national team used Sportful apparel, with World Championship victories for Bettini, Cipollini and Ballan. The success continued with their Saxo Bank partnership, victories in all three grand tours, and multiple classics wins from the likes of Cancellara ,Contador and Sagan. Working with pro team athletes Sportful strives to make the best possible performance apparel for all conditions. Sportful is currently the official technical clothing partner Trek Segafredo and Drops Women's cycling team.
