Bib Shorts - Hors Categorie - Black

£ 180.00 GBP

Our ultimate bib shorts for comfort, luxury and performance

Designed with one purpose in mind, to be the most comfortable performance Bib shorts available. Our Hors Categorie shorts have been designed from thousands of hours in the saddle and incorporate all our road testing and innovation.

Our HC Bibs use the top of the range Italian 220g Lycra so the shorts feel luxuriously rich whilst technically performing in a wide range of temperatures and conditions. The HC range uses our top of the range luxury Dolomiti Gel chamois pad, providing that extra support to get you through the ride in maximum comfort with minimum irritation. A special thread and stitch shape down the outside edges of the pad reduces rubbing to an absolute minimum.

The ergonomic design of the panelling & seam shape ensures the bibs fit to the shape of the rider in the riding position. The specially designed laser cut bib straps hold the shorts in place without cutting into the shoulders, while the shorts themselves feature an innovative silicon gummy gripper design that runs along the entire length of the leg, ensuring a perfect fit with our trademark Le Col leg gripper at the hem.

In addition, the seams have been flat locked to eliminate irritation and the logos are embroidered to last the lifetime of the product. This HC Bib Short is our Ultimate Bib Short for comfort, luxury and performance. Suitable for the widest range of rides.

Good chamois and materials but fit is very disappointing

In 18 years of cycling I have never worn anything but a medium pair of shorts and currently have medium Assos, Giordana, Castelli, Craft, Rivelo and Hommage au Velo shorts, which all fit me perfectly. I have a 30" waist and am 1.76 m tall and fluctuate in weight from 66-72 kg, and although the fit of these shorts around my legs is fine and I don't think I could go much smaller there, around the waist they are very baggy and the fabric bunches up significantly, especially when standing, and the shorts don't stay in place nicely. The chamois, I have to admit, is comfortable when seated. Worth noting that I have a le col jersey in a medium too, which is a very snug racing fit, so I don't feel that your sizes align with each other. In other brands I am either a small or medium jersey so I realise there is potential for some difference there but in shorts this is the first time I have experienced a medium being too big for me and being such a poor fit. For a premium pair of shorts I would expect a better fit, based on an athletic build, and a significantly better all round performance. Maybe this pair is just a dud but to be honest I don't see myself purchasing another pair of these or actually ever using them for anything more than commuting, which is disappointing given the price and the fact that they are designed for long rides and competition.

These shorts are so good it’s genuinely made my others a little invalid which is a nightmare for my bank balance but anyway this are great, good for long and short rides and for like a glove! If you’ve got the cash, spend it on these!

Second order of these.

I've ridden countless brands of Bib's over the years and came across these (Strava) a while back. Riding both mountain and road bikes gives me a good comparison of overall performance in a Bib. I couldn't be more impressed in both disciplines. They are now my go to for mountain biking and if I didn't have so many others to wear out I'd wear them on every road ride. On the mountain bike along with comfort and padding the fabric doesn't stick to the seat or grab and allows you to shift around easily; the relaxed wide shoulder straps are a plus. On a road ride they are perfection. I love the wider and relaxed shoulder straps, they stay in place fine without the digging in around the shoulder. The muscle support is great if you size them right, and by right I mean snug/tight. These are the only Bib's I have ever worn that do not give me any chafing after hours and hours in the saddle; period. Maybe it's my arse but that's a fact.
