Worth every penny
Admittedly, I got these on sale. Bought two pair. I‚€™m a long distance cycler, most days at least 4 hours. Being retired from the army, I don‚€™t have a lot to spare on products that don‚€™t work.
I‚€™ve used each 3 times already. No ride less than 60 miles, two were centuries. As I rotate old worn out gear, they‚€™re going to be replaced by these.
Absolutely comforfortable after even 8 hours in the saddle. You can spend more, but I don‚€™t know if you can buy better

I don't often do reviews, but . . .
I might have just found chamois nirvana! These are the first shorts I've had (and there have been many, of different makes and models) that let me ride more than an hour or so without needing a butt break. For me, the shape and placement of the chamois is ideal, and I naturally settle into a comfortable, efficient position on the saddle as I change positions on the handlebars. The addition of the mesh pocket in the small of the back is a welcome feature as well, giving a bit of storage space for those times I elect to ride without a standard cycling jersey.
Cold water machine wash, hangs dry in reasonable time (comparable to others, despite the thicker chamois).
For fitment comparisons, I'm 5'10", 175 lbs., 33 waist, 32 inseam, and size medium is ideal.
Other reviewers have mentioned that the cut in front is a bit high for "natural breaks," and I agree, but have not found it unreasonable.
The 1st day I wore them I wrote 60 miles with no problem. The fit and comfort is very similar to my Aero tech men's riding endurance bike shorts. The straps on the bibs are comfortable and a good fit for me as I am 5'9" tall and weigh hundred and 79 pounds. I ordered the large size and I am happy with the bibs.
ProsComfort, compression along with the proper chamois padding.
ConsNone at this time
Best UsesCycling 40 miles-75 miles.

Best bibs I have ever work
Great chamois, holds up well to washing. I own 3 pairs, and do laundry to make sure I do not get stuck wearing other shorts. A little pricey, but worth it.

Very good product
I bought these on some recommendations from our cycle club members when I asked on face book about what the best bib shorts for an upcoming century ride that we were doing. Well I ordered and received them in no time. I wore them for the century and really glad that I had bought these. They are well worth the extra $$ and so much better than I have ever had in the past. They really are designed for the long haul and I am very pleased with my purchase.
Stay cool during the ride

Was glad to see shorts offered in larger sizes for clydes! The sizing chart, however, is off. I measured my waist at 43" and the 2XL was too large offering no compression and excess fabric. The XL fit better, but was sad to see the inseam shrink as I'm 6'1". However, even though the compression was better, the 6-panel fabric design pattern didn't offer compression where I would have wanted. Also, after my first ride there was some fabric wear already starting where it must have rubbed. Overall, I like that there is a size that can fit my body and pad was nice, but I didn't feel that it was worth the price.

Chamois doesn't seem right
The Chamois seems to be in the same location as my other Aerotech bib's but by the end of a 20-mile ride, it's way too far forward. Unfortunately, this was not something I could tell by trying them on, so after 2 rides with the same issue, they are unreturnable. Been riding a long time and have had many pairs of bibs and shorts even other Aerotech ones, never had this issue with any others, I would not recommend these.

Fit is accurate and comfortable.
I've worn the bib so far on a 20 mile ride and a 42 mile ride. I have no problems so far.

Size was correct - Not as much compression as I had hoped for, but a really great bib
I have ridden with these a few times and completed a few spin classes with them. They are very comfortable and wash well.

Need a lower cut in front!
Excellent pair of Bibs! One recommendation, please fix the high cut in front and lower it a tad.
Difficult restroom stops because of the high cut in front.

Returned for different size
I love ATD products. I returned these and bought the tall size because these were pulling up a bit in the crotch. But, the quality seemed very good like always.

Best of the besr
I ride a average of 5000 to 6000 miles per year. I've been doing it for years and have used all different brands of shorts and by far and away these are the best, most comfortable shorts I have ever owned. I will not use anything else. If you ride century rides or just 30 or 40 miles you'll want to buy these

My Saddle Never Felt So Good!!
I'm Crazy Stoked Up about my new Elite Endurance Bibs! I ordered two pairs and I am glad that I did. I've logged 100 miles on these bibs in 3 rides. ( 50, 25, 25 miles) Currently training for the tour divide and plan on using these bibs. They are very lightweight- the material feels like it is not even there. The mesh in the back panel is key, and the extra pocket is big enough to hold a liter bottle of water- yet is unnoticeable when not in use. My order took three days to deliver. I talked with Jordan before purchasing and he absolutely steered in the right direction with this product. The bibs fit true to size. Fantastic Product! Glad to Support a product made in the USA!

Very good purchase
Developed ischial bursitis after years of riding. After buying the ATD Elite Endurance bibs riding was a lot more comfortable. I like a compression fit so I exchanged for a size smaller than what I measured for. Bib material is a lighter weight than some endurance bibs but very comfortable for all around feel. They are cut high in the front so taking a nature break is a little time consuming, but again I bought a size smaller than the size chart suggested. Very pleased with AeroTech quality and comfort.
ProsExtra comfort on rides no matter the distance or the time.
ConsCut high in the front. Would like brighter colors for more visibility.
Best UsesLong time in the saddle rides

Very Good Value and Confortable but Warm
The chamois is very comfortable on these, you can tell it is high end. I am new to bibs, these are my first pair so I'm not the best to judge but overall the quality seems good and glad I tried them. My only complaint after not looking at other brands is that they don't have much mesh ventilation. The lower back in particular gets hot.this may be the norm but overal. Very well built, I can tell the difference in the quality of this chamois on 2-3 hour rides vs my shorts from a. High end manufacturer, these just disappear for the most part, a great value and love to be able to support a USA company in the cycling space. Bought some of their socks as well, very good quality and bright!

Aero Cycling Bibs
I have totally enjoyed my new bibs and would recommend them to others. They fit great, are comfortable and really help a non-biker with their entry into biking.
September 16, 2015
I have been riding for nearly 20 years and have owned a lot of bibs and shorts. Unfortunately, these shorts always let you know they are there. The chamois feels like it is either pinching, rubbing, or compressing my sits bones. I waste a lot of energy shifting on the saddle looking for relief which never comes.
I bought one of the name brands and I feel OK in the saddle.
ConsLack of comfort.

The best bibs for long rides
I'm what they call a Clydesdale in the cycling community - which is really just a nice way of saying that I'm a big guy. I just finished my first double century on the Ride from Seattle to Vancouver and Party (RSVP). I don't think I could have finished the ride without these bibs from ATD. When I get out on a long ride they just disappear. I don't have to think about saddle pain. Isn't' that really what we want?
