Product News – Endura FS260-Pro SL Bibshorts


When you work with a professional cycling team like the Movistar Team or Team NetApp-Endura, you learn quickly that the fit of cycling shorts is highly individual and varies with different body types. And just like a custom fitted bike and saddle can make all the difference, so can perfectly fitting bike shorts.

That’s why Endura now introduce the FS260-Pro SL Bibshorts which uses an innovative fitting system, developed with gebioMized®. By offering three pad width options and two leg lengths, the FS260-Pro SL provides an unbeatable body match and the removal of any excess padding that does not serve a purpose optimises breathability, flexibility and ultimately, comfort. The Italian Power Lycra® combines lightweight and fast drying performance with muscle support and employs coldblack® technology to reduce build-up of heat as well as providing an SPF of 50+, making these the perfect warm weather performance bibshorts.

The 3D mesh upper of the bibs guarantees optimal breathability. The FS260-Pro SL Bibshorts come in a pre-curved race fit and are equipped with the 700 series pad, a computer cut “continuously variable profile” (CVP) stretch pad with antibacterial finish. To allow for a perfect body match, the innovative fitting system has been developed with gebioMized® (, the experts for customized cycling products.

Global leaders in bike fit, gebioMized® have a long history of working with best WorldTour teams, Pro riders and triathletes to perfect their manmachine interface and positioning. Using a special software in combination with a measuring mat, the gebioMized®-Endura Pad Fit™ System quickly matches the correct seat pad according to a rider’s physiology as well as riding style.

Endura has provided an approximate guide of pad matching using sit bone widths and/or saddle widths in order to find the best matched pad. However it must be emphasised that this is a very rough guide only and the Endura-gebioMized® Pad Fit™ system is a far more accurate method of selecting the pad that will provide the greatest level of comfort to the rider.

The FS260-Pro SL Bibshorts’ 700 Series Pad in Detail:
The new 700 series pad may look unassuming and downright simple at first sight, but those gentle contours hide a wealth of development and intensive research using the world’s most sophisticated dynamic saddle pressure measurement system (from gebioMized®) and backed up by testing and feedback from, amongst others, Movistar Team’s professional riders.

The aesthetic result of this rigorous scientific analysis is a gently contoured pad with a smooth, unbroken profile. Endura’s high tech Continuously Variable Profile (CVP) technology provides supportive padding only where required, with all superfluous material removed to minimise bunching and friction and maximise moisture transfer and flexibility.

The pad’s shaping was not preconceived by a designer attempting to create a technical appearance but instead is the natural outcome of systematic testing and development using the latest dynamic pressure mapping and construction technologies. Its elegant curves provide the optimal shape to minimise peak pressure points generated on the pad whilst cycling and this is the key to its comfort.

As the 700 series pad has been born through a scientific approach to optimising function and performance it has been left as the unadulterated genuine article without indulging in pointless gimmicks designed to create a technical façade for those influenced by appearance. The 700 series pad features:

• 3 width options to better match pelvic geometry and saddle pressure profiles of individual
riders. Supported by the Endura-gebioMized® Pad Fit™ system (patent pending)

• Length scaled to complement bib short size

• Multi-density Italian open-cell foam sandwich with flame lamination bonding to maximise stretch and moisture transfer

• Continuously Variable Profile (CVP) contour cutting technology that minimises bunching and friction

• Italian high stretch, antibacterial, fast wicking, low friction polyamide/Lycra® face fabric

• Patented 3D mesh shaped front zone for improved fit and air circulation

• Sealed edge perimeter cutting for clean and smooth edge stitch

• Developed exclusively by Endura in collaboration with gebioMized®
