Hammer nutrition bib shorts/jersey

How are hammer nutrition bib shorts and jersey? Very cheap, and I am a very poor student, but id prefer if my behind did not get destroyed.

I love my Hammer/Voler bibs...have worn them for over a year and still like new. Received a pair yesterday and still very nice especially for the price.

They are great bibs, have 3 pairs, but not so great last year as they only offered them in red/black.

Just emailed them to find out if there will be other colours this year or if they are going back to the black only.

And older colors on sale as well - picked up yet another pair. Love them - am comfy after 4+ hours on the saddle, so dont really feel the need to spend more.

I love mine. I don't like last season's Voler version. They dumbed down the chamois. I believe they re-upped it this year. The Bergamo bibs are/were nicer. Still prefer the old Volers though.

Can anyone comment on the 2010 jersey? As in, does it fit well? I am looking at the short sleeve jersey... anyone got a pic of the back?

I have a pair of Tri Shorts that are great. They are a few years old and have been used for a few Tris.
I also ordered a pair of the Bergamo bibs last year. I have only used them a few times, however they are comfy so far.
Hope this at least helped a bit.

I have both the 2009 Voler and the Bergamo versions. I can say that they are both good but I much prefer the Bergamo ones. The chamois is a lot better in them and it has a better inseam for me.

I do have a question for anyone out there that owns the 2010 versions. I am willing to try the Voler version again but I was wondering if anyone could tell me how they compare to the 2009 versions. At this moment I think I would never go back to the Voler version but maybe someone can redeem them.

Another couple of shill shots:

2009 design jersey:



2008 design jersey + bibs:




The voler jerseys are among my favorites - they're snug, durable and have very useful pockets but don't sag. Good stuff, even better if you pick them up at the end of year sale.

I got a free jersey from someone locally. I really like it. Mine is mostly white. I guess the only beef I might have is that it says "Supplements" on the back. Of course, I know what it means, but other people might get the wrong impression.

Has anyone seen the back of the 2010 Bergamo bibs? From the pics on their website, it looks like the white on the side of the legs extends across the butt

The Voler Elite's went from being my favorite short to unrideable for me after the chamois fabric switch. Be great if they switched back as I still can't find a pair I like as much.

Sorry to revive the old thread, but I'm looking to pick up a couple sets of hammer kits. Does anyone have an active referral discount?
