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.

Bib Shorts

Delivered very quickly. Good quality feel and fit. Nice unique colour design.

Support where you need it most

First time slipping the bib shorts on and I noticed right away how well the fabric held together in the thighs providing exceptional compression. The Grippers look like they could be too tight or annoying but they didn't shift the entire 3 hour ride; crisp tan lines proved that! The best is the chamois, it comes up far in the front to cup and protect my bits, add added comfort in the taint area and of course the pad over the saddle was far superior to some other "hi-end" bib shorts. One fuss I have to make is the band that goes around the stomach could be a little tighter. I understand its hard to cater to every single body type but I just found that the waistband wasn't as sung as I would've liked it, Otherwise these are a fantastic pair of new addition to my wardrobe.

Great Quality and comfort

I am really pleased with the quality and comfort of the BIB shorts. The comfort of the pad is excellent. Highly recommend.
