We took our most popular bibshorts, slimmed them down, and put an Italian Elastic Interface® Paris HP crossover endurance chamois pad to bring you ultimate comfort (and utility of pockets!) on big rides.
Compared to our original Canopic Cargo bibshorts, these have a slightly lighter fabric, extra-slim seamless straps, a silicone gripper with a seamless thigh hem, two large thigh pockets (the original Canopic has four: two leg pockets and two rear pockets). Think of the original Canopic Cargo shorts as the heavy-duty version that can be paired with pocketless or trail-style jerseys, while this (Canopic Race) version is the more minimalistic version with two deep leg pockets and a choice of two great endurance chamois pads.
(Not sure which to choose? Get in touch with us for advice!)

✅ Two large cargo pockets on the thighs.
✅ Choice of either our Endurance Chamois or an Italian Elastic Interface® crossover (road & offroad) endurance chamois pads both rated for 7+ hours in the saddle for superior comfort.
✅ Highly breathable fabrics and premium flat-seam tailoring for ultimate comfort during hard racing efforts.
✅ 50mm super lightweight seamless lay-flat straps.
✅ Seamless thigh hem with silicone gripper.

I bought these to try out during a solo 24-hour mountain bike race and they are the best bibs I have ever owned. the lightweight fabrics helped immensely in keeping me cool on an incredibly hot day. The Chamois was extremely comfortable as well. I do not use chamois cream with my bibs since I dislike the feeling. I wore these for 18 hours of riding with no discomfort and no saddle sores. If it was not for humidity increasing to the point where the bibs could not dry out, I could have comfortably worn them for the full 24 hours. Wearing these bibs feels like I am wearing nothing at all. Ordered a second pair just before writing this.

Love the olive cargo bibs! I bought them late in the 2022 season and have not had a chance to wear them on big rides yet, but on the two short rides I’ve had them on I am loving the fit, comfort and pockets! I have a couple of other cargo pockets from other brands, but I just love the minimal straps and deep mesh pockets on the Montu bibs. Would not hesitate to recommend.

These are some of the most comfortable bibs I own, and I know own the navy pair as well. I started out with the original Canopic cargo bibs in black, and loved the comfort of the chamois so much (after riding in them regularly and doing an 8 hour gravel endurance event) that I had to add these, as well.

Super comfortable. I tried a few but this one fits well and is quite comfortable. I am 5′ 10″, approx. 168 pounds, L is a good fit. I’d recommend this product

Excellent Bibshorts! I’ve had one indoor and outdoor ride with these so far and can’t wait use them on a longer ride. The material is nice, light, and breathable and the integrated cushion is one of the comfiest I’ve ever sat one. Beyond just the shorts, the service from Montu was great. Through their FB messenger they were able to help provide recommendations on size so I got the ones that fit best. As a 6ft, 188 lbs, male with some large thighs, the XL fit me like a glove.

The fit is good the chamois is nice and thick for long rides and the pockets are a bonus for access to food while on the ride.
