Given the extremely high output of Italian cycling apparel, it's a near miracle to find an Italian-crafted brand that's still lesser known to the cycling community. Take Nalini for instance, whose products like the Men's Mavone 2 Bib Shorts are made in the heart of bicycle haven's Castel d'Ario, and are still not as popular as the logo-riddled jerseys of today. The point is that you could be a bicycle billboard for a well-established cycling community, or you could sport the New Mavone's sleek black colorways with the Italian performance you crave on the asphalt.

I also own a pair of Nalini Integra bibs and I liked those so much that I thought I’d try another model from Nalini. The Mavone 2’s did not disappoint. I’m 5’9” and 155 and the large is great although the fabric in front comes up a little too high making them not a great option for hot weather. Also, the cuffs fall a little higher on my leg than some of my other bibs from American brands and I do prefer a slightly longer inseam..Nalini sizing is similar to Castelli where I also wear a large although I’d say Nalini runs maybe a hair larger than Castelli. In every other brand I’ve worn I’m a medium (Capo, LG, Giordana, PI, Gore, and Hincapie). I’ve worn them on a variety of rides and I haven’t had any problems or discomfort with them although like I said, I don’t like them for really hot weather. Overall, these bibs look sharp and feel great. At $113 they’re a tremendous value.
