Scott's RC Pro Plus Bib Shorts look like no more than road specific Lycra at first glance, but they were actually designed for XC racing, with a little road riding thrown in if you find the time. The bibs employ a close, contoured fit that will move with you as you race without adding unnecessary weight to your setup, but they're comfortable for training rides and spins on a road bike as well. Using stretchy synthetic blends, the shorts hold their shape over hours in the saddle and work to reflect sunlight rather than absorb it, keeping you cooler when you're on an exposed race course, with mesh inserts to further add breathability. Scott's all new Pro chamois makes a grand introduction in the RC Pro as well, and the top of the line insert, designed specifically for long distance riding, blends four types of plush foam cushioning in varying densities to protect you against miles of harsh trail vibrations. It's finished with a soft polyester top layer that enhances breathability and resists bacteria over time.
