Le Col By Wiggins Hors Categorie Bib Shorts

$249.00

 

"I wanted to push the boundaries of quality and luxury, to be really indulgent with the best materials, and simple and clear with the HC Collection's design, letting the class speak for itself. The gold accents are a simple nod to my Olympic achievements and found throughout the entire range."

Sir Bradley Wiggins

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

The shorts use top of the range 220 gsm Italian fabric so the shorts feel luxuriously rich whilst technically performing in a wide range of temperatures and conditions. A top of the line luxury Dolomiti Gel Chamois provides extra support to allow you to finish your ride in maximum comfort with minimum irritation. Ergonomic panelling ensures the bibs fit to the shape of the rider while in the riding position and specially designed laser cut bib straps hold the shorts in place without cutting into the shoulders. Additionally an innovative silicon gummy gripper runs along the entire length of the leg ensuring a perfect fit with our trademark Le Col leg gripper at the hem.

    Top quality shorts.

    Have to be the best shorts I've bought to date! Finish is superb, material feels real nice against the skin and the look every bit the price they cost, Strava discount helps (thanks). Paying for returns when your not sure of the sizing is a bit out of date these days but the service received when doing so is top notch. Sizing is a bit of a pain if you don't fit the averages used, bought Large had to return for a Medium, as per an earlier review these felt looser than other makes and I wasn't sure they were right but on the bike they were great. Fit and feel was spot on when pedaling, can't comment on the pad comfort over distance as I haven't ridden far enough to find out. Which brings up an old question for me, how tight is right? Anyway a super quality well made pair of bib shorts.

    Shorts with a difference

    I bought the "Hors Categorie" bib shorts in the January sale and although I have yet to wear them on a long run, I have worn them a significant amount of times on roller sessions. I would say that upon trying them on, I thought that the leg grips were a bit too loose and the shoulder straps too weak. However once starting cycling the shorts settle into the normal position for riding and consequently feel very comfortable. To the point I would say that in contrast to the other shorts I have worn previously, these feel like I am not wearing shorts at all. Clearly I have become accustomed to wearing really tight versions. The pad presents as effective, although perhaps a degree clumsy when walking but I have found that I can do an entire hour session seated without chamois cream, therefore I would happily give a 5 star rating.

    Le Col By Wiggins HC Shorts - AWESOME! Rapha, eat your heart out.....

    OK, inspired by the WIGGINS HC JERSEY (Red), I took the plunge, and ordered the matching shorts. Initially, I ordered a size Large, but needed to exchange for a Medium. If you are in the market for high end bibs, simply look no further. The fir n these shorts is quite simply awesome. The materials, design, fit - timeless classic. Expensive, kinda....but you only ever get what you pay for. TIP: I am a regular size guy, in proportion. If you fall in-between sizes - size down. 100% SATISFIED in the HC Collection, I will be back for more. LECOL managed the return in a timely manner, but Just one minor niggle - LECOL? You need to start providing FREE RETURNS. These shorts (Special Delivery, required to cover for loss, per your recommendation - costs £9.00!). If you wanna play with the big boyz, like RAPHA...you have to provide free returns.
