Racing is never comfortable, being the protagonist of a doomed breakaway less so. The Defiant shorts have been given their name in respect to the racers who must sit at their limit for hours on end, success as distant a thought in their mind as the finish line. With the Defiant bib shorts, comfort is the priority - constructed with materials and details that ensure you can go the distance on your next ride without having to endure discomfort - leave that the racers.

Building on the success of the original Defiant bib shorts, the Mk2 version is finished with luxurious touches everywhere you look, but most importantly where you don't. The star of the show is hidden to the outside eye: a Progetto X2 Air chamois pad sits at the heart of the Defiant shorts and cushions you from any discomfort with its firm, contoured fit and seamless finish.

The recycled polyamide yarn we've selected is not only a sustainable choice but designed to be easy on the eye, too. So rich is the Italian Forza fabric, it almost sucks in any light, resulting in a deep, matte finish. Wrapping up a confident, understated look, the CHPT3 logo is printed onto the ultra-light mesh bib straps, whilst red embellishments nod to the flair of bespoke Savile Row tailors.

  • Multi-panel bib short with printed bib

  • 190g/m2 fabric weight with 35% Lycra Xtra Life content
  • Progetto X2 Seat Pad

The Defiant bib shorts fit true to size and, though not designed for racing, are still a close-fitting item. The multi-panel construction makes for a supportive fit which may feel closer than you're used to - if in doubt select a size up.

Leave discomfort to the racers
