The 7Mesh MK2 bibs are fitted snugly around the waist but are relaxed in the thigh, which means you get some forgiveness in the rear if you’re not exactly racer-lean.
The rear end also has higher coverage for a comfortable fit in an aggressive riding position.
We love the minimalist single strap up the back, but it can lead to some slight sagging in the rear end since it only pulls in the center of the shorts.
Still, the high-density chamois feels supportive and comfortable with no seams or friction points to speak of.
