    Shebeest is back

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    I just clicked on Team Estrogen's "New" tab to see what new products had come in, and there was a bunch of Shebeest stuff. It actually took me a second to realize...I guess this means they've solved their North American distribution problems.

    Lot of familiar items -- the patterns and colors are different for the jerseys but the styles look the same (Easy V, Strada, etc.) The old favorite shorts are back too.

    - Two awesome worn out Juliana saddles

    Yay, I'm glad they're back, although I wish they'd gotten away from the animal print. It's just not my thing.

    I guess they stuck with the animal print because of the "beest" in their name. I had one of their fuschia jerseys with the animal print and liked it a lot -- it matched my Aegis Swift (bike) that I no longer have. It was a really, really good quality jersey and still looked brand new after many wearings. Not many jerseys I can say that about.

    Yeah, I have several Shebeest jerseys that have held up very well. I love my pedal pusher knickers, too.

    I've had success with their shorts (although I rarely wear my S Pros since I got the Sugoi RS shorts), but their jerseys are just huge on me, even in the extra smalls. I've never had that happen with any other brand; I actually have broad shoulders for a petite person, so I am not sure what is going on.

    Shebeest XS jerseys fit me fine, at least the last time I bought a new one, which was a long time ago. Perhaps size inflation has hit them. I also have relatively broad shoulders. I think they are cut a little bustier than some jerseys.

    I do like their shorts too. Have some in an electric blue color that I really enjoy since I get tired of black all the time.

    I tried their plus size mountain bike Breezer model shorts and had to send them back. They were HUGE around the waist - even worse than most unisex shorts.

    Shebeest shorts and capris fit me well. For tops I was all over the place with sizing -- small Easy V's fit fine, while a couple of different short sleeved jerseys fit okay but are loose in the bust or torso in order to get them large enough to be comfortable across the shoulders. But I have the same problem with jerseys from most manufacturers.

    Shebeest is back under new ownership. TeamEstrogen.com has worked VERY extensively with the new owners (who also own another one of the apparel brands we sell) to ensure that there is consistency between the old product and new. They are using the SAME fabrics, the SAME chamois, the SAME factories. The fits are excellent and we are super pleased with how the line has turned out. So, if you've been nursing along that favorite pair of SSS shorts or pedal pushers holding out for new production, wait no longer. :-)

    Same.

    I want to try out a pair of their shorts since I've read good things. Can someone help me out with explaining the difference(s) between the S-Pro and the SSS? I'm loving the S-cut jersey with the simple stripe in the middle. Now to decide which color....
