Don't miss a moment from Paris-Roubaix and Unbound Gravel, to the Giro d’Italia, Tour de France, Vuelta a España, and everything in between when you join Outside+.

A ceramic coating on the sides helps reduce friction in crashes on the POC Avip VPDS Ceramic bibs.

Luckily we didn’t test this feature.

But the 4-way stretch fabric provides a snug, comfortable fit we enjoyed. The lay-flat straps complement the comfortable fit. Poc’s chamois features VPDS material that the company says dampens vibration.

While we couldn’t tell if this was the case on test rides, we did find the chamois comfortable, though quite thin. This is clearly designed with racers in mind.

We hope you enjoyed this online gear selection. For the complete VeloNews Buyer’s Guide, which is only available in the magazine, subscribe to VeloNews, visit your local newsstand, or buy the single issue.
