Designed In Oregon, Paying Homage To The State's Most Epic Climb
The ProCorsa Men's McKenzie Summit Bibshort pays homage to McKenzie Pass in Central Oregon, a ribbon of tarmac that passes through two old-growth forests and a vast field of volcanic rock that can only be described as lunar-like.
Designed in Portland, Oregon, and crafted with top-tier materials, the McKenzie Summit Bibshort provides all-day cycling comfort when conquering climb after climb.
The anatomically designed construction allows for the perfect fit and follows the body in motion. High-quality lycra and flat-lock stitching allow these bibs to lay smoothly against your skin, preventing bunching or irritation.
New precision laser-cut bib straps complement the updated highly breathable mesh back panel for a performance-driven approach to temperature regulation and comfort while you ride. Smooth cuffs at the legs provide a seamless fit and even pressure distribution throughout.
Featuring the exclusive high-density foam chamois by Elastic Interface, the Road Performance Force Chamois, is anatomically shaped with minimum bulk, offering ideal saddle stability and fit for long-distance road cycling. Perforations on the surface of the chamois allow for lower skin temperature and reduced moisture.
To suit the sleek and understated look of these bibs, the short only features one small ProCorsa logo on the left thigh that lets the quality and craftsmanship of this garment speak for itself.
- Upgraded laser cut bib straps offer a seamless fit and luxurious feel
- Upgraded highly-breathable mesh back panel to keep you cool
- 10-panel construction moves with you as you ride
- Elastic Interface® Road Performance Force Chamois improves blood flow and pressure relief

I liked my first pair so much I bought a second pair! I have and have used most type shorts out there and these are the best for me. I donï¿½t race anymore and just want to enjoy my time on my road bike. And we all know a short that is uncomfortable can ruin a nice ride. These donï¿½t disappoint!
I am shorter stature, 5ï¿½7ï¿½ 165 lbs. but I do have a long torso. If I was taller or had a longer torso the bib tops ï¿½mightï¿½ be a little tight, but as much as they stretch itï¿½s really hard to say.
Picked these up on the Daily Special a few months ago and have liked them. Wouldn't want them at full price, but definitely competitive with other bibs I've bought for a similar amount. Chamois is good, nice and flat, doesn't have all the weird contours that can cause irritation if things aren't in the exact right place. Good amount of padding without feeling too thick. I have had this pad shift on me enough to get a little uncomfortable, but that seems to be only if I've gotten off the bike and moved around a bit. On the bike it's never been an issue. So as long as you make sure everything is good after a coffee stop or fixing a puncture it should be fine.
I'm around 6'2, 205 lbs, got an XL. The fit is pretty good, I actually like bibs to be quite snug so feel like I could have gotten away with a L, but the XL isn't bad and I still get good compression in the legs. I would prefer the legs be another inch or so longer but they're not the shortest I've tried. I really like the bands at the base of the leg. The silicone grippers that many brands use can irritate my skin after a couple hours so I like that there's none of that on these. I also have XL bibs from Sportful and DeMarchi. The ProCorsa's seem similar to the DeMarchi in fit, with the Sportful being noticeably more snug. When I've had Pearl Izumi in the past I could easily get away with a L, I felt between L and XL with Gore, so I'd say these fit smaller than PI and Gore while being looser than Sportful or especially Castelli. Of course, this depends on the style of bib you're getting, more race-style or "aero" cuts will likely be tighter for each brand.
I have both the McKenzie summit pro bibs and for the money these might be a nicer bib. I have done centuries in both and I like the slightly shorter legs of the lower priced one. They do however share one common trait with the pros and that is the shoulder straps are too short. I am 5'9" and 200lbs and fit and the XL are still tight at the shoulder straps but if I go any bigger the legs would be like knickers and the bottoms would be baggy. If the straps were a couple inches longer it would rate 4 maybe 5 stars.
5ï¿½10ï¿½ 150 pounds and size medium fits just right
-The chamois in this bibs is amazing, very comfortable and smooth (no weird bumped up areas to create hot spots like is common on other brands these days)
-the big straps are extremely comfortable and just the right amount of tension
-overall the materials seem really nice with good stitching
-the leg length is quite short, about 1.5ï¿½
Shorter than my next shortest bibs
The reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is the leg gripper, they use a tight band rather than gripper material. The legs stay in place fine but the tight band isnï¿½t that comfortable and I can feel where the clamped on my legs even after removing the bibs, I would much prefer silicone or rubber grips over the current design
I generally go through a lot of bibs. For 2020, 2021, and 2022, my annual mileage has been 9,000, 9,400, and 7,000 miles respectively. I was on a Race Across America team in 2021 and a Race Across the West team in 2022 so I understand a lot about the necessity to have good bibs on whether I'm riding outdoors or on my trainer. These bibs are a great value and offer a great fit. Check my team out at www.teamsuicideprevention.com. We ride our bikes to help save lives.
I just received them and did a 100 mile ride today and the liner is more comfortable than the liner in the pro version. They do run small. I am 5'9" and 200lbs and athletic build and the shoulder straps on the XL are way too tight. fits like a large or even smaller. The inseam is also an inch or so shorter than the pro version in the same size. It was a good deal on the deal of the day, but not at full price.
As others have said, these definitely run on the small size. I'm 6'0 and 170lbs and usually wear a medium in other bibs. I ordered a medium and it's wearable, but definitely on the snug side, and the legs are also pretty short. Having said that, I really like the chamois. It's not hugely padded but seems to have enough in all the right places and less padding where you don't needed, so these are really comfortable. Quality seems good too, so I bought another pair in large. Overall, if you size up at least one size and get them when they are on sale, these are really good and comfortable bibs for the money.
First ever bib purchase, a tad hesitant to make the leap from basic shorts. Following advice from other reviewers, purchased up one size versus my normal M size. Size purchased: L, RN# 161186 tag (run number?). Reviewer: 6'1" 175 lbs, 31" waist, 32" inseam, 39" hips (long torso/short legs). Size/fit: L seems like a perfect, and that includes leg length, which fully covers to top of knee on this reviewer. Wear/ride feel: can't comment - warm weather has proven elusive in the Upper Midwest in 2022:)
These bib shorts are comfortable and fit me well. (I have 3 for a first bib shortprs.!) They are an excellent value if you can get them when they're on sale, sometimes for as much as ~50% off. Some may find the legs a mite short, but I don't and would recommend them for a great quality bib short. Btw, the size chart and fit are quite accurate in my experience.
I've been riding with this bib for 3 rides now (20-32 miles/ride) and experiencing no pain. The straps are soft enough not to cause any chaffing. Thinking of getting 2 more to have enough bibs for rotation.
For reference, I'm 5'7. around 185lbs with a 34" waist and I ordered a Large.
My first pair of ProCorsa. They fit and perform well. I'm used to more compression, and these are in the mid-range for compression IMHO. And I also love how they look! Very generous straps, which is great for me @ 6'2'. The legs are long enough for me. They are in my favorite bit of kit - top 3 for my 25+ rides. And they move well with your body too.
These are really well made. The are really comfortable. But most important is the padding. It really creates a comfortable ride. This padding blows away all the other shorts I have. Thirty to fifty mile rides are more comfortable then ever.
I like these bib shorts because they are short. I really don't understand why cyclists want their bib shorts to fall just above the knees. The quality of these bib shorts is good, well worth the sale price. The chamois is firm and flat, which I like. I'm 6' tall and 175 pounds and the size large fit great. They stay put, so there's no mid-ride adjustments.
I bought the previous version with the shorter legs and these are certainly better. The legs are still shorter than other brands but they are long enough for me, there are no silicone grippers which seems odd but they haven't crept up during rides so not a big deal. The material is quite thick with good compression and the shoulder straps are comfortable, the chamois is more dense and possibly a bit thinner than before so no complaints there.
These are actually pretty close to the lower-end PI bibs in material quality and performance, if I had paid full price I might have been slightly disappointed but thankfully BTD has them on sale quite often.
The ProCorsa Men's McKenzie Summit Bibshort has become my favorite. I average about a hundred and fifty miles a week. The four-way stretch material hugs the contours of my body. The fit is snug without feeling tight. They keep my private parts securely in place. Never have I felt any discomfort down there. The chamois is firm, not squishy providing better support. The shoulder straps are wide so as not to dig into your shoulders. The workmanship and material appear to be of the highest quality.
Was interested to find out if the quality, value and suitability coincided with the hype and sales blurb. This pair (?) of bib shorts is up to the task so far. As a new brand to me the attire sizing was all ether, as seems the case with any manufacturer kit, and had to return the first delivery - size medium - which I selected after considering the sizing chart. Once that was sorted am quite happy with the fit and apparent quality. The suspenders strap material and width is equal to more expensive bibs. Comfortable chamois though haven't put a big ride on yet. Decent thigh compression. Hope they continue to perform as well into the future. 6'-1" and 170 lb.
