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.

Like a second skin

Have been using these on my turbo trainer rides for the last few weeks and they are absolutely fantastic. The pad is amazing and they fit perfectly. 5ft 10, 63kg and the small are right on for me. Can't wait to get out in the new year with these on.

First ride impressions are very good!

Pleased with these. Good cut and fit. Comfortable pad and good leg grippers. Straps are different to what I'm used to, but no issue. These were immediately comfortable and never a point where they grabbed my attention (for the wrong reasons) during the ride. Purchased with the Strava Le Col 5hr challenge discount, so great value!

Best bibshorts I've ever had

After completing the Le Col 5 hours challenge I received a £50 off voucher to be used on purchases over £100, still thinking it was still a bit steep I held off. During Black Friday the bib shorts were reduced from £180 to £100 which would allow me to use my £50 off voucher as well. This brought the price down to £55 delivered. This is ASTONISHING value for the quality of the product you receive. I would GLADLY pay the full price knowing how good these shorts are now; the pad is perfect, the straps are supple, the weight is weenie and the looks are to kill. Honestly better than any other bibshort I've tried on or owned since I started cycling.



Best I’ve ever owned

Better quality and fit than Rapha pro kit!
