They’re among our most beloved cycling offering for good reason.

Form fit.
Ibex's Bike Ponte Heavy fills a tall order: a fabric that provides warmth for active wear in colder temps, but remains breathable when the rider heats up. Made of 21 Micron New Zealand Wool, this heavyweight fabric performs well in a wide range of temperatures. Durable, soft, and also machine washable, use this fabric with confidence for all your high output activities.
Benefits of Wool
Wool garments offer substantially more protection from UV exposure than traditional summer fabrics, like cotton.
Wool draws moisture away from the skin and evaporates moisture, regulating body temperature in all conditions.
Ibex wool products naturally include antimicrobial properties, keeping your garment odor-free.
Wool fights off weather and dirt and prevents stains, making Ibex easy to wash and easy to keep clean.
Because Ibex is made from very small micron diameter fibers, our garments are extremely soft and comfortable.
The craftspeople who are involved in every step of the process–from the sheep, to the spinners, to the sewers–are carefully hand-selected.
Because we use wool–a natural and renewable fiber– Ibex is good for you and good for the Earth.
Ibex wool garments resist heat. They don’t hold a flame and won’t melt like synthetic fabrics and fibers.
We recommend a general body measurement guide to determine your size in Ibex clothing. This sizing chart is not garment specific, but in fact a body measurement chart. Here are some helpful hints when measuring:
Bust/Chest: relax arms at sides, keeping the tape parallel to the floor, measure the fullest part of your bust/chest
Waist: keeping the measuring tape comfortably loose, measure around your natural waistline
Hips: standing with heels together, keep the tape straight and parallel to the floor, measure around the fullest part of hips
Sleeve Length: a 3-point measurement, standing with arms relaxed and slightly bent at sides, measure from the base of the neck to the shoulder and then from the shoulder to the wrist bone, add together measurements
Form-fit: garment designed to fit snug to the body throughout
Semi-fit: garment will be contoured to the body
Regular-fit: garment will not be slim, but also not oversized
Relaxed-fit: garment drapes loosely on body

This product was an addition to my growing array of cycling apparel. I own the Ibex shorts and Ibex leg warmers. I spend a lot of time in the saddle and value quality gear (you get what you pay for is my motto). These filled a niche in my arsenal for temps ranging from low-40 to mid-50's. I am 6'0" 145 lbs, and purchased the small. It's my thought that the grippers are supposed to hit mid calf and
I just got in to cycling around the rainy PNW so I don't know a ton about cycling gear. That being said, I know Ibex quality and when I decided to get into the sport I knew I couldn't go wrong with their gear. Since these were my first cycling clothing purchase, I decided to go with something that could be a great 3-season piece and I'm glad I did. These breath amazingly and I have yet to over-hea
I hadn't expected to get to use these until later in the year but it was pretty cool here Saturday morning so I decided to wear these for a 70k trail ride...
Outstanding - they kept me nice and warm at the start of my ride. And even though the day had warmed up quite a bit by the time I finished these shorts didn't make me feel too hot. Chamois seems to perform well too!
I have wanted a pair of these 3/4's for a couple of years, and finally splurged. I'm glad that I did too, because these El Fito's help bridge the gap between the really cold weather and the warmer stuff.
They have a lot of give in the fabric, so range of motion is great, and they don't move around. The grippy bottom cuffs stay put.
I'm 5'10", 165 lbs, with a 33" waist. The Medium is a perfect
Road with my new knickers today for the first time. The comfort of these is amazing. Never gave them a thought except thinking how warm and cosy they were. Who would have thought that a wool covered pad would be such a sweet ride. The high waist is a joy with no roll up bunching at all . Without a doubt best best designed and manufactured piece of bike clothing I have ever owned. I'm 74 so Ive ow
I've ridden 100+ miles in these since Christmas - thanks mom!- on a solo half century, commuting, and on a good twenty five mile ride today. Conditions have all been generally above freezing and below 40 F except for one bone chilling commute, light drizzle for half of them. Hey it's in Portland in the winter what can you do;) First let me start with the great. These things feel amazing. I'm a "bi
Bought this for my husband. He cycles in all kinds of weather and wore them while mountain bike riding in 30 degree, dry weather. He came back saying the pants were great! The "capri" length was good because his knees were protected but it was not confining. The only complaint was that the waist is too big and sags. He rolled it over to avoid having them feel like they were falling down. He
Much better temperature range than expected. I purchased these last fall and road them all winter with some windstopper knickers over top. Very cozy. I kept riding them all spring and now thru the summer. Been using them on 80deg days without overheating. They are too warm when I first put them on, but as soon as you start to sweat, they regulate down. The chamois is the best part. Who would
Good - slight redesign of the seat and chamois would be good
These wear nice but I find that the seat and chamois slip down a bit and the chamois still rub a bit around the unmentionables. I like wearing them but after about an hour I find them less comfortable than lycra. A good addition though
