HC BIB SHORTS NERO/NERO

£180.00

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.

Top marks for top of the range kit!

I was dubious about how much better a top end pair of shorts could be. The fit is great and they are supremely comfortable, better than I expected. They look good too which is half the battle!

HC Bib shorts

Usually wear Assos, bought these with the Strava code, one word, Exellent, the fit was spot on no need to up a size, you can feel the quality straight from opening the box. Wore these 1st time on a 100 mile ride and can honestly say no problems. Feel 100% Comfort 100%. Definately recommended.

Really comfortable bib shorts. The pad is just the right size as are the shoulder straps. Good price too with the strata challenge discount.

In at the deep end

Bought the bib shorts for London 2 Paris and wore them for the third and fourth days. They were extremely comfy in very extreme windy and rainy conditions. I will buy another pair of these and generally they will have a lot less to contend with than they have already proved themselves more than capable of handling.

Supremely comfortable, excellent Customer Service too.

I've had chance to wear these a few times now and have no complaints at all. They have a supremely comfortable fit and pad, soft fabric with some lovely details (the embroidery in particular) and seem really well made too, with no poorly-sited seams.

To quote Ned Flanders, "It feels like I'm wearing nothing at all".

As an (extremely lucky for me) aside, Yanto Barker himself is a true gent, very helpful with fit and sizing queries - and the Exchange department are efficient and prompt also.
