Stay stealthy, or disrupt the norm: Our SS24 colourway showcases our legendary Convoy Shorts like never before..

Updated for Summer 2024, colours are richer, the fit is better and the versatility beats anything else out there. 

The Spatzwear ‘CONVOY’ Bib Shorts are like nothing else on the market. Designed to let you ride as far as you want; as fast as you want. Developed to work in perfect unison with our Jerseys, Base Layers and Gilets.

The killer features of the ‘CONVOY’ Bib Shorts are the cargo pockets. Not only 2 mesh pockets positioned across the rear section, but also a small additional pocket placed snugly on the inside top of the right thigh: Extra convenience when you want to grab or stow a gel without causing unneccesary faff, bulk or drag.

The cut of the shorts is long (down to the knee). We have added 10cm woven-in silicone grippers for comfort, positioning and to integrate beautifully with leg, knee or thigh warmers.

Logos are subtle, black rubberised print and go unnoticed until a headlight beam hits, when the reflective paint glows up strong. We have added subtle logos under the mesh cargo pockets which only catch the eye in the glare of a headlight.

We have specified a high quality, perforated synthetic chamois that performs well with or without chamois cream. After 2 years of testing and development, we opted for a medium thickness, medium density chamois that will not bunch up as you shift and move on the bike.

These are shorts which you could realistically use for a 200km gravel epic, and then wear to smash up your local evening criterium the next day. They will soon become your go-to shorts for racing, training, gravel or simply riding.

We have designed shorts which are fitted and aerodynamic yet offer features you will come to rely on every day. They have been developed and tested to destruction by the current Olympic Champion.

The ‘CONVOY’ Bib Shorts epitomise our strap-line: “UTILITY WITH SPEED”.

OMG!

Are the Cargo Bib Shorts the Emperors New Clothes??
The padding is super comfortable and supportive. Love the fit and pockets + one on the leg and they look super cool!
Got the free CoolR base layer and it's 'very cool' even on a hot day!
I just need another pair now for Ride Across Britain in September to ease the ride!

Awesome shorts

Had to get a second pair as love these shorts so much. Have 20 plus years worth of shorts and these are simply the best. Chamois is excellent, totally appreciate the pockets back and leg. The material perfect and leg length and grip spot on. I’m 187cm and 72 kg and Medium is great fit.

Premium product. Innovative. Watch the sizing.

I thought about buying these bibs for weeks before taking the plunge. I’ve invested heavily in Spatz upper body kit since December but hung back a bit on the shorts.

I fancied the brown ones and ordered medium based on my being 70kgs and 182cm. Unfortunately when they arrived they were too big. I was a little surprised. The straps were loose on my skinny shoulders and the pad didn’t feel compact. Spatz were good enough to exchange them for small and they are perfect but bear in mind that I’m over 6ft tall you’ve got to wonder if size small would fit someone weighing 60kgs and under 5,6 tall.

I’ve test ridden them twice. The ultimate test in my pain cave and a short road ride. Performance wise they’re spot on. Very comfy with the best leg grippers I’ve ever worn. No slippage there. I think they’d cope very well with long rides indeed.

One of my concerns with any colour other than black is sweat management and by that I mean dark spots in dodgy places. Predictably after an hour on the static bike with just a fan on my upper body there was a visible large dark spot from the crotch up to my waist. This is the same with black but obviously less visible. However after 10 minutes on the road this had disappeared in the cooler air and I don’t expect it to be an issue on long outdoor rides. I love this brown colour. It goes with my dark brown shiftr jersey and almost any other colour. I suppose a couple of sweat marks is the price we pay for being a bit radical in our colour choice 🤣.

They are a great length just a couple of inches above the knee. I had a mole removed a few years ago on my right lower thigh and the test of a good short is when that area is covered in the sun. These shorts even in small cover it completely. 👍.

The convoys are made from a slightly thicker material and they are plush. You can feel the quality as you pull them on. I’d happily wear this in low teens temperatures. The pockets at the rear may well be useful at some point for gels. But whatever you put in them will get wet with sweat eventually. I stuck a mini pump in there and it felt fine against my back.

Pros. Plush and luxurious feeling against the skin. Grippy on your thighs. Comfy premium pad.

Cons. Watch the sizing. I’m medium and large in Spatzs upper body kit and small is as low as these shorts go in size. Premium price but you get what you pay for. These bibs will last for years.

Great feedback, thanks Al!

Great bibs! I carry my tool kit, pump and cleat covers in the rear pockets, which leaves my jersey pockets open for other stuff. Great chamois, and I like the longer leg length.
