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.

Dodgy quality

Be warned! While the pad is ok and does its job, the quality of the lycra is not. After my first ride in them, a short 40 km ride, the material is already wearing away where my thighs touch the seat. These bibs look nice enough, but are obviously not meant to last. My other older bibs still don't show any signs of wear in these areas and they've done at least 10 to 20 times the distance. Also, I wouldn't expect bibs like these to have irregular seams and loose threads dangling between my legs.

Excellent Bib shorts

Bought the HC Bib shorts using £50 Strava discount, sizing was perfect for 6' 2" 90+ Kg rider, done 2x 60 plus mile runs and the padding was excellent. Very pricey but great piece of kit

Awesome Pad

First ride was a hot 120 miles in July.
Panels are super well designed & the pad is truly awesome. Buy cheap buy twice. Alway purchase high end, these are up there with Rapha & Assos tip end kit.

High class bibshorts

Bought these to replace much loved Assos pair using Strava Le Col discount. Used a couple of times and absolutely delighted with them. They look great but understated and classy. Fit is great although Le Col medium in this model is a bit more generous than Assos. For me, at 1.76 m and 68 kg medium is perfect. I’m still waiting to try them on a really long ride but so far they are as comfortable as any bibs that I’ve tried. With the discount code, the price is OK. At full price I think they are expensive but they are a quality product.

Very impressive...

If you're anything like me, you would tend to hesitate just a little before spending this kind of money on bib shorts - but having taken the plunge and bought the HC BIB SHORTS I would definitely recommend them. They are without doubt the most comfortable, well made bib shorts I've ever owned - and I have tried many different makes. Comfortable pad, comfortable over the shoulders and grip well round your legs. They also look pretty smart! The longest ride I've done wearing them so far is 100 miles, which was really comfortable. I'll definitely be buying Le Col again.
