Womens Hors Categorie Lightweight Bib Shorts

About the Product

Engineered to keep you cool and focussed on long and hot summer roads. Experience elevated comfort and support as you pedal through the heat.

The all-new Hors Categorie Lightweight Bib Shorts are the result of years of relentless development - an odyssey driven by a passion for design and performance.

We’ve taken everything we love about our Hors Categorie Bib Shorts II and made them lighter, ensuring no compromise on performance or durability. The result is our lightest long-distance performance short, crafted using our most luxurious technical fabrics and designed to meet the demands of long summer rides.

The main body fabric of the shorts has a lighter fabric weight of 135gsm, in contrast to the Hors Categorie Bib Shorts II which feature a fabric weight of 160gsm, ensuring a second-skin feel that moves effortlessly with you while providing the ideal combination of support and breathability in sweltering conditions.

Perforated raw-cut elastic straps redefine lightweight support, seamlessly blending super lightweight design with exceptional retention and recovery.

A minimalist seam construction optimises a streamlined fit, minimising friction and allowing you to concentrate on conquering the road ahead.

Fast-wicking fabric ensures efficient moisture management. Stay cool and dry for longer as the material swiftly wicks away sweat.

At the core of the shorts is a multi-density long distance chamois pad featuring our most premium gel insert. It's tailored to adapt to your body’s contours and ensure maximum comfort and support when riding all day and over varied surfaces.

Honed through testing and refinement, the Hors Categorie Lightweight Bib Shorts stand as a testament to our commitment to crafting apparel that transcends expectations.

Enhanced Breathability

Everything about these shorts is designed to enhance airflow and moisture management in hot and humid conditions.


Comfortable and lightweight

These are my first pair of Le Col bib shorts. They are comfortable and lightweight, perfect for riding in a hot environment. Fit I would said is more aligned with US sizing than the European sizing I am used to (which tends to run a bit smaller than US sizing, IMO). I ordered a S and that will be fine, but I probably should have ordered the XS.
