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.

OK but the straps are to long for me

Size XL I'm 185cm and 90kg but the straps are to long for me, my wife is going to shorten the straps for me hope that fixes them ( I could lose 2kg, but any more than that is going to be muscle) if not then they are an expensive nappy. No problem with the quality but I've only used them once. I'm normally an Assos XL and they fit fine.

Bib shorts

Wow these are gong to be awesome come the warmer days what a pad!!


Loving my new bib shorts super comfy pad and the straps are so comfortable without allowing any movement. Comfiest bib shorts on the market and I’ve tried a lot of brands! PS Nice details on the legs, and like the new packaging.


Tried them up to 200k rides and so far so good

Top quality

I've purchased these bibs and shirts on Le Col's online store. The pack has arrived from the UK within a few days. Size XL fits perfectly and is in line with other brands i already knew (i am 1.83 cm high, 86 kg). I've rode 100 km and the bibs are perfect and super comfortable. The shirt dressed over a long sleeve underwear is perfect for italian late october conditions.
