2Go is an Indian brand that specializes in what they call “Activewear”, a line of functional sports performance apparel and footwear designed not just for Athletes but for women and men across the country with specific hobbies and movement interests. We got a chance to review the Men’s Cycling Bib-Shorts from 2Go’s Cycling Apparel collection, and here is what we think.
The Men’s Cycling Bib Shorts from 2Go is a part of their “VeloLove” cycling apparel collection, and is the second generation of cycling shorts that they have released. These shorts come in 2 color variants, a full Black with a Black and White stripe pattern at the base, and a Black with Grey side panel pattern. The one that we reviewed was the full Black with the stripes pattern we loved it immediately, as the pattern was very subtle, yet gave a good highlight to the Black. 2Go has been very smart in their choice of colors for their bib shorts, and not made the mistake of using any other bright and flashy colors, which would make the shorts tough to match with other coloured jerseys.
The shorts feature a 6-D Gel padding layer that provides good comfort and vibration ab-sorption, making it ideal for long hours on the saddle on our Indian roads. Being an Indian company, 2Go has clearly understood the needs and requirements of the cyclists here and has designed their apparel suitable for our conditions, which surely deserves a Kudos from our side. The quality of the padding is certainly a good improvement from their first generation shorts, which had very minimal padding.
2Go as a brand has always concentrated on bringing good quality, and well-fitting apparel to the Indian market and it is evident in their Men’s Bib Shorts. Being a race fit type apparel, the bib shorts has a body hugging fit, that can also sometimes prove to be a bit of a tight fit for overweight or taller riders. The shoulder straps were soft and comfortable around the shoul-ders, but aren’t very stretchable for taller, thinner riders, who would require a bigger size. Hence, we would advise the riders to go for one size bigger than their usual size for a more comfortable fit. We hope that 2Go will soon fix this sizing issue in their future bib-shorts.
The dense-knit fabric of the 2Go Men’s Bib Shorts offers good comfort and compressive support. The moisture wicking material ensures that sweat dries away quickly, avoiding saddle sores. The soft silicone gel leg grippers keep the shorts from sliding upwards when riding, and a flat lock stitching all along the seams of the shorts makes sure that there are no stitches that stand out and rub against the rider’s skin. The seamless gel padding is one of the most effi-cient and comfortable that we have ever seen in any bib shorts from Indian brands.
The branding on the shorts is also subtle and underplayed, with 2Go using the side panels to print their “2Go Cycling” logo in stylish bold letters, and their signature Ram logo on the front leg, in a small size about the size of a coin. This is a refreshing difference from other heavily branded apparel.
2Go has been a brand that has always been well known for combining comfort, styling, functionality, and value for money, and they do not disappoint in their latest collection of apparel. The Men’s Bib Shorts priced at an unbelievably cost effective price of Rs.1,999 (as on April 27th 2019), this is one pair of bib-shorts that any cyclist would im-mediately fall in love with.
