Cooling even for the hardest climbs.

Santini has a reputation as the brand many of the pros wear. The BCOOL Bib Shorts won’t disappoint, as they keep you cool when you go after that PR on your local climb.

The majority of the paneling on the shorts is sewn from a blend Santini calls Lycra Newport. This fabric is a combination of stretch and compression that reduces fatigue caused by muscle oscillation. The side panels have the added benefit of carbon particles woven into the knit. These particles not only keep UV rays at bay, they also minimize odors. Holding the bibs in place on the top are mesh straps that keep you cool by allowing air between the fabric and your skin. On the bottom are anti-slip Lycra leg bands.

To keep you comfortable as you grind uphill, Santini incorporates the GITevo chamois into the BCOOL bibs. This insert is the lightest in the gel insert line and features ample padding for your sit bones. The microfiber cover is also antimicrobial and wicking to keep you cool and dry.

Great fit, good value

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: XXL

I got these Santini BCOOL bibs for summer use, and it is only February now. I am 6ft 3 and 230, and the size XXL fit is perfect. Since it is February, I wore them as a base layer for some 20 mile rides and the fit is great. The Chamois feels good on these short and cool rides. The real test will be when the weather warms up. I like the lower cut in the front and sides. I expect these bibs will have good coverage, and great cooling once the weather warms up.

Love Em

    After using several Santini bibs last year, it has become my preferred bib choice, prior to Santini, I used Giordana FR, Mavic, Sugoi and Gore bibs.

    I live in SW Colorado, and my riding is is primarily mountain biking and some mixed road riding, typically longer rides that last several hours at least.

    I find these shorts work much better than any others I have used on hot 100deg days in desert riding, like Moab. The cut and fabric is perfect to keep sweat from being an issue down below, where they allow better air circulation at the bottom of my tummy and crotch area = more comfortable ride. The cut gives you less coverage on the front sections, but for me, it is reasonable to keep your privates covered.

    I am a small person, 5-4 with athletic build, the size small fits me perfect. Santini has been consistent in their sizing, small is perfect on the 5 pairs I own. Most other brands, the inseam is too long for my stubby legs. Santini also publishes a very detailed and good size chart on their website.

    The Saniti sizing also follows suit in the padding. I have not had any issues with chafing and the padding tends to be in the right spots to keep me comfortable and just as important, not bulky and in the way.


    Despite other reviews, these bibs are similar in quality, pad and feel to the other Santini bibs I have.

    Not as advertised!

      These bibs are cut and labelled as BCool bibs but are made from Thunderbike lycra and contain the GITevo chamois (not the MIG chamois). They are clearly an inferior product compared to that advertised. This issue raised with Backcountry who knowingly continue to sell them mislabelled and with misleading advertising.

      It has been confirmed from Santini - the delivered product from Backcountry is definitely NOT the genuine classic Santini BCool bibs.

      Good fit

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: xl

      Did a few rides in these and really liked the fit. The only thing I didnt like was the chamois. It is very thin and seemingly hard. It does not fit me and where my sit bones meet the seat. They are great bibs but I get uncomfortable about 1.5 hours into a ride. I am 6'4" 180lbs and ordered the XL. It fit fine for my build. Again I just dont like the chamois

      Meh

      Tried these last fall and again this year. Fit feels good but the straps fold over and become more like cords. Nip chafers. Many jerseys won't cover the low front of these. And if you like giggling tweens whilst stopping for a drink, the small viewing window right at the crotch works wonders!
      I have already moved these to the back of the closet.
