Rodeo Explorts 1.0: Details and features.

Main Panels

The main panels of the Explorts bibshort are constructed with durable, dyed, Italian made, recycled Lycra for long term durability. Compared to sublimated fabrics, which fade and become more transparent over time, dyed Lycra retains its color and supportive qualities longer.

Cargo pockets

We considered and tested a wide range of cargo pocket fabrics before choosing the material for our pockets. We wanted the right blend of stretch, structure, and breathability, not fabrics that felt hot or restrictive. When not in use we wanted our pockets to feel like they weren’t there at all and when in use we wanted to pockets to be capable of carrying almost absurd amounts of cargo. Cell phones and energy bars don’t phase our pockets. Fancy stuffing your pockets with a burrito or two for after the ride? Not a problem at all.

"Quick Drawers" bib straps

Bib shorts have always been appreciated for comfort while riding and hated for being so difficult to  take off easily, especially when nature calls. Nobody likes peeling off one to four layers of jerseys and jacket to do what has to be done, but we’ve mostly put up with it for years. Is that really necessary? We decided to try to find a better way, and the Explorts feature a simple and clever quick release strap system that makes it surprisingly easy to take the shorts mostly off without having to peel off your tops. On a single ride this could save a few minutes of inconvenience, and over the course of a weeklong bikepacking race, you may just end up saving a lot more time than that.

In testing we’ve made sure the clips are comfortable and very quickly disappear when riding.

The clips differ slightly than what is shown in these images but the quick release function is identical.


Explorts feature an adventure tested Italian chamois that we’ve found works well for single day rides up to about 100 miles. As with many bib shorts you may want to think about chamois cream on rides longer than that or multi day long distance adventures. This will come down to personal preference and saddle choice as well as how rough your riding terrain is.

Explorts have four reflective accents on the lower back and behind each cargo pocket for added night time visibility.

Our laser-cut, siliconized grippers have a mildly compressive fit without cutting off circulation.

Explorts are made from globally sourced fabrics. The 1.0 Explorts primarily feature Italian materials.

Explorts are sewn and constructed in China. Our patterns and designs are proprietary and are the result of over two years of experimenting and revising.

Fit, sizing, returns, and exchanges.

We’ve designed our sizing to fall as in-line with the sizing of other major brands as possible.

Generally speaking our women’s pattern has a medium inseam, not one extending far down towards the legs. Consult photos for reference.

Fit is also highly personal and there will always be variances in fit from person to person. We advise measuring and checking our sizing chart carefully before ordering. The Adventure Posse will order some extra stock for size exchanges, but please communicate directly with the Posse with questions about this. No shorts can be returned to Rodeo for exchange or refund.
