With a jaw-dropping price tag, we take to the road with these POC Multi D 3-quarter bibs to test whether the extra money spent is worth it

Wealthy road or mountain bikers not afraid to dig into their wallet for quality
Overall Score
Perfectly fitting, top quality pair of ¾ bib shorts
That price is very hard to justify

As with all items on review we handed these three-quarters over to our test team members with no comment on price. A clean review on performance is always better, with no expectations from a high or low price tag to cloud judgement. But there wasn't one person who didn't have to be picked up from the floor when we revealed the £220 price tag afterwards.

Pulling them on it was clear they are of a high quality however, with the brushed roubaix-type fabric extremely comfortable and form fitting, while delivering enough insulation for the spring and autumn rides these 3/4s are aimed at. Wide mesh straps held it all in place perfectly while a handy reflective panel at the base of the back could help with visibility at a pinch.

Two narrow pockets at the base of the back could be handy for a key or card if no other options were available.

We rode these shorts over pretty much every discipline; gravel, mountain and road, and on each type of riding we were extremely pleased with the performance of the pad. Short and sharp or long and slow-burn it never raised any chafing or comfort problems, and the same could be said of the rest of the body.

There is no doubt they are a terrific, well fitting and handsome pair of three-quarters, but we can't help feeling you could get very similar performance for nigh on a hundred quid cheaper.
