"The first thing that springs to mind is just how warm they truly keep you."

Cyclist reviewer Joe Robinson recently tested the Therma Bib Shorts, awarding them 5 stars out of 5. 

"Just a few rides in the Le Col Therma bibshorts was enough to convince me that this is one pair of bibshorts worth investing in.

Water-resistant, of thermal thickness and perfectly comfortable, these bibshorts from former pro Yanto Barker's ever-growing company are amongst the best I have tried.

When you first handle the shorts, it is noticeable that these are much thicker than usual, with the interior having more of a fleece-like feel as opposed to the usual lycra texture.

Put them on and start riding, and Le Col's promise that these will keep 'the chill off the upper leg during colder mornings' is quickly realised."

A versatile bib shorts designed for racing and high-intensity efforts in damp conditions.

  • Garment is water resistant and uses aqua zero fabric throughout
  • Fabric is thicker than standard bibs to keep you warmer

Using an innovative aqua zero fabric, the bibs strike the perfect balance between protection and breathability, resulting in an exceptionally technical race-ready product.

Slightly thicker than standard bibs these work well at keeping the chill off the upper leg during colder mornings.

Combined with our top-end Dolomiti Gel Pad using only selected fabrics and materials, which makes for perfect transpiration and ventilation of the body, even under extreme conditions.

Aqua Zero non wetting fabrics are durable and unique in that that they can stretch but still retain their water repellence over long periods of time. In addition they are fast drying, have improved UV and chlorine resistance, wrinkle resistant and soft to the touch.

Ideal for the transition between seasons.

Best Bibs so far

User of Sportful, etxeondo, specialized, Castelli and now Le Col. Le Col is so far the best by a margin and I’m very impressed by the fit and comfort and since it’s the winter bibs also the protection against rain and cold. Kudos!

Great bibs

Fit is on the spot (170cm, 64kg, small). Nice wide flange on the chamois to keep the seam away. Tailoring is really high quality with luxurious fabrics and materials.

Best Thermal Bibs I've Used

After a few rides, I can say these are perfect for winter. Thermal with the addition of water resistance to the fabric, has you ready for anything winter can throw at you. Like them better than a pair I have from another brand, that are just as warm and comfortable, yet lack the water resistant fabric. Just wish that I had grabbed a second pair, wasn't sure I'd like them this much, and international returns can be bit of a pain. Look forward to trying a pair of summer bibs.
