PRO BLACKOUT BIB SHORTS

£165.00

Le Col's fastest pro shorts now with extra long leg gripper. Developed and proven in the pro peloton this is a race ready garment focused on performance without foregoing comfort. Featuring a subtle black printed Le Col logo on the leg gripper and black stitched Le Col on the rear, the Pro Blackout Bibshorts are our newest addition to the range.

The Pro Bibs use a lycra sport fibre, engineered to provide exceptional fit and recovery power to deliver dependable form season after season. The updated fabric on the upper section of the bibs ensure that the shorts stay in place while keeping fabric to a minimum. The trademark oversized Le Col gripper with intermittent silicone tabs ensure the shorts hold firmly in place with less pull.

A Pro Dolomiti Chamois has been chosen specifically for cyclists focused on performance and looking for dependable comfort and quality on long rides or competitive races. The thinner pad has a highly effective silicone treatment and provides comfort without sacrificing performance by removing the excess bulk of larger chamois. A special thread and stitch shape down the outside edges of the pad reduces rubbing to an absolute minimum.

In addition, the seams have been flat locked to eliminate irritation and the logos are embroidered to last the lifetime of the product.

This Pro Bib Short is Pro Racewear available to all. Most suitable for races or competitive club rides.

Comfortable, well fitting.

I usually wear Altura pro gel but thought I'd try something different. I'm 6 foot 3 and at 14 and a half stone / 92 kg I'm not your lightest of riders so I need something comfy around the seat area.

I'm long bodied and at first found the shoulder straps felt quite tight but I didn't notice them once I started riding. Also, as the chamois pad is memory foam it's quite thick but once again, once riding I only noticed the comfort.

I test rode them on the Cat & Fiddle (which is fairly local to me) and a few other climbs in the Peak District on a 50 mile ride.

I found them to be by far the most comfortable bib shorts I've worn to date.

Some people comment on the elastic on the bottom of the legs (it's more like a thick lycra rather than the traditional elastic). I can see where they're coming from as the cut isn't quite right but on my fairly well built thighs, they fitted great once I pulled the shorts up into my groin properly. It may be a problem for riders with twiglets for legs, though.

Great shorts!

The PRO BLACKOUT BIB SHORTS are my first item from Le Col and the quality of the item is really good. Very comfy for longer rides.

all round good

Had these for a couple of rides, up to 50 miles, they are comfy, soft and stretchy in the right places. Would buy again.

These bib shorts are so comfortable! The chamois is probably the best I’ve ever used. They’re comfortable in all the ways you want them to be comfortable. Plus they give me a really handsome mangina! How great is that?

Great pair of bib shorts

I only have a pair of entry level level bib shorts from Performance Bike to compare it to so it's not an apples to apples comparison but I really can tell the difference in quality between the two pairs. Both are size medium shorts. I'm 5'8" with 32" waist and 30" inseam. Size wise they both fit great around the torso. However, the padding on the Le Col is definitely thinner but no less comfortable. I like that because it doeant feel like I'm wearing a diaper like the thicker padding on the Performance bike shorts. Also, the shoulder straps on the Le Col definitely have more compression which I like. The Performance ones just sort of feel like they sit there as if made for someone with a longer torso. Been riding these shorts on a few 20-30 mile rides and one 60 mile ride without any complaints or discomfort. Would definitely buy again and look into some thermal tights for the upcoming fall/winter season.
