Endura now introduce the FS260-Pro SL Bibshorts which use an innovative fitting system, developed with gebioMized®. 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Steve22 No where near as good as the original shorts
I had a pair of the mk1 shorts and loved them, so when they developed a hole after 5 years thought it'd be a safe bet to get the new version.
Sadly, the mk2 is a mere shadow of the original shorts!
I'm currently on my 2nd pair of these, having returned the 1st pair due to workmanship issues. This 2nd pair is already showing signs of wear (the material is breaking up) after only 4 rides.
The chamios feels flat, the sizing is smaller than the originals with a tighter grip around the legs making it uncomfortable and the material feels very cheap (as such it is prone to thinning)
To summarise, I recommend trying a different bib short!

I was looking to upgrade my dhb's as the padding had become wafer thin and I was starting to feel the effects in my 'sit-bones' which I hadn't experienced before.
I read a lot of reviews about different options and narrowed my search down to the Castelli Due and the FS260pro.
I ordered the Castelli's. According to their size chart I should be a medium but taking the advice of others I ordered a L and an XL just in case. Well, you can guess the rest. The L barely passed my knees and the XL was like squeezing into a medieval torture suit. I sent them back. (I'm 5'9, 13 stone and not built like a pipe cleaner)
I got the Enduras (L) took them out the packet and did a 3 hour ride. The padding is excellent and although some comments say it's too thick I found it to be fine, I didn't find it impeded movement at all. In fact, the only part of the shorts I noticed was the tight grip of the legs but after 10 minutes cycling that feeling was gone. I'm pleased with the quality and price compared to the Castelli's I had ordered.

You can't go wrong by choosing Endura range and these shorts are excellent,comfy.
I don't know is it me or the Pro range is smaller on the size then Endura Xtract Gel Bib Short.I have medium Xtract shorts and they fit perfect,these are a bit tighter in medium.But that's ok,i don't mind.

Did 800 kilometres over 4 days, with liberal scoops of chamois cream these shorts did very well.

I am a fan of Endura clothing because it is great value for money and lasts. These shorts are no exception and true to size. A little tight on the thigh grippers.

I have 2012 and 2013 versions. The new one has better pad, more friendly to your man thing, top seems to have a little different design. Highly recommended. I used the old one a lot, no problems revealed. Dry and comfort. I fell in mud, on asphalt ( gently :), at forest many times. Wash and dry - they are like new.

I own two airs of the 2012 version of these bibs which are great. The 2013 model is even better with the newly designed chamois offering more comfort.
