  1. Geoffrey Godsell (verified owner)

    What an excellent pair bibs. Great fit & really well put together with not a loose thread in sight. Extremely comfortable to wear and the pad is superb. I’m really pleased with these. Thank you Galibier.

  2. Adrian Megahey (verified owner)

    Great shorts – I am 170cm and the small are perfect – really great leg length. Super comfy, tight but not too much so just the right amount of compression and I love the slightly different colour on the leg cuffs. As ever, the service from Galibier is the best, on top of what is already a brilliant product and great value.

  3. Scott Taylor (verified owner)

    Quick delivery, wore the Classique shorts for the first time on a 3hr spin today.
    Fit – 94kg, 5.10 with 32 inside leg – Large are perfect.
    Quality – Really well put together with a great pad, quality fabrics and stitching.
    Performance – Didn’t notice anything about them, which is a fantastic compliment – If your kit is good, it just works. right??
    Price – Phenomenal value – I’ve got shorts that cost double this that don’t fit as well, don’t work as well and cost me double!!
    Well done Galibier!!!!

    My favourite pair of shorts having owned them for ~ a year – also own(ed) DHB, Santini, Howies and Morvelo (previous faves). Very comfortable for me, pad really works with my bum/saddle combo.

    I am 6’6″, 34″ waist, 78kg, skinny lanky build with a layer of beer flab around the middle. Usual issue with bibs is getting the length of the bib right so that they don’t give me a wedgie, these are perfect in that respect. Only mild compression in the legs which I like, only gripe is that the black lycra is particularly shiny compared to my other bibs. They have stood up to a year of being chucked in the wash with the rest of my normal clothes.

  5. Ben (verified owner)

    Excellent pair of bibs. Been using these for around 2000 miles now with 90 miles being the longest ride. I had a lot of numbness with my old budget shorts but these have stopped it. They are still in perfect condition and are very comfortable. I’m 6ft 1 and 71kg. The large is a good fit for me.

  6. Hugh Miller

    So much better than my DHB shorts! Arrived within 24 hours and just been on 60 k ride. Excellent padding and comfort. I’m 75 kg and 5 ft 11 and large seems good – I wear 31-32 inch waist jeans but my waist is actually 35 inches when I measure it properly! Bib shorts are a bit wierd but with the comfort I think I’m now sold.

  7. Andy Lane (verified owner)

    What a superb pair shorts. I’ve tried a lot of different brands in my 50yrs riding and these are up with the best at half the price. Good quality with a nice firm pad. I’m 5’11” with 32” waist, medium is an excellent fit.

  8. Neil Goody (verified owner)

    I’ve had a few issues with saddle soreness recently, don’t know why it’s started now but,no matter how much chamois cream I use, I’m still walking like John Wayne after long rides. First ride out (albeit a shorter one) and I’m pleasantly optimistic that these shorts will do the trick. The pad is really comfy and covers more area than the shorts I’ve already got (mid-range, decent brand.) I’m 6’, 33” waist and about 90kgs and the large fits really well. Product is well made and excellent value for money.

  9. Phil Tomlinson (verified owner)

    Only had the one ride in these shorts, but I can already tell they’re going to be great.
    Good quality construction, and although seemed very tight when I tried them on, within a few minutes I’d forgotten all about them. Didn’t notice them again for the duration of my 2.5 hr ride, which has to be a good thing.

  10. EG (verified owner)

    Ok, these are great BB shorts. First time I tried the brand, went out cycling today. Excellent fit, very nice pad, looks good quality, good price. Overall very happy. 5ft 11″, 100 kg, got XXXL, very nice fit.

  11. Henry (verified owner)

    Better than many other shorts and a bargain price. Took a few rides to figure out how I wanted the pad “positioned” but it’s great, fits without being constrictive.

    These are always the shorts I reach for first.

  12. Cormac O’Dwyer (verified owner)

    Great fit and comfort. I’m 5’9, 32″ waist usually, and went with the medium. Would highly recommend.

  13. Colin Roberts (verified owner)

    My third foray into Galibier clothing and I cannot fault the comfort, quality and value of their products. These are the most comfortable bib shorts I have ever worn whether a 1 hr blast or a 6 hr ride. As a brand and a company they are providing high end kit for cycling enthusiasts with an approach that is both refreshing and personal. Hence why look elsewhere?

  14. Giles Byford (verified owner)

    Bought a pair of these because the suppliers I’d otherwise use are now behind the big bad wall of Brexit. Hesitated to commit to a long ride but after a few local spins wore them for a 120k run. What a pleasant surprise to find them more comfortable than bib shorts that were twice the price. Bought quite a few other Galibier bits at the same time and have to say similarly impressed with all of it. A real result and, finally, an upside to Brexit!

  15. Grant (verified owner)

    The most comfortable bib shorts I have ever bought, and at a fraction of the price of others.

  16. Rory Tummon (verified owner)

    Really good quality. Took them on 50km 1st ride and hardly even noticed them. Comfortable and stretchy material with a nice pad. Purchased size XL being 6ft and 110kg, being a larger guy they still were very comfortable and a good fit. Really quick shipping too these guys are great with their orders!

  17. Martin Gemmell (verified owner)

    Bought these after being socially influenced by Bill. Great bibs, good chamois. Bit low at front for me as I have a longer back but this actually helps with the comfort stop,

  18. caldwell.liverpool (verified owner)

    Great pair of bibs! I’ve recommended these to many of my cycling friends!

  19. Michael Morgan (verified owner)

    Great quality shorts at a great price. xxxl fit me perfectly (six three and many kilos) and the pad is the best I’ve used. Great for all day rides. Light, comfortable and stylish. Highly recommended and great service, as ever, from Galibier.

  20. andrew_hutt (verified owner)

    Bought these last summer (2019). The look, feel and quality of the material is excellent. I would love them, except for one thing – despite what others have said, unfortunately for me the chamois pad just does not fit right. I feel tipped up awkwardly in the saddle with these shorts on and despite persevering with them, they are now relegated to be used for only short turbo trainer rides. Not sure what has gone wrong with the chamois pad design? but I have never had a truly bad fitting chamois before I bought these bib-shorts and in many years of riding and racing I have owned lots of cycle shorts.

  21. Stu (verified owner)

    You will not buy a better pair of bib shorts in this price range. The quality far exceeds the seriously competitive price tag. My entire kit is galibier and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend all their products to anyone who will listen. After some expert advice from Myles I ordered the size he recommended and they are perfect. Seriously, what are you waiting for? So good I bought a second pair.

  22. Frans Cornelissen (verified owner)

    After my first ride I’m really impressed by the short and the chamois. It feels even better than my expensive other bib short. I believe there’s no better price/quality product in the market! Also really fast delivery and support of Myles!

  23. craig beale (verified owner)

    Superb shorts, top quality with a super comfortable pad.. probably the best I’ve tried! will definately be buying more galibier products!

  24. johnmcguigan4 (verified owner)

    Sizing: Im 179cm and 90kg and size XL fits.
    Have these for a year now and can say they are a great pair of shorts, The pad is very comfortable and will do for long rides. Generally the shorts just fit and do a super job. I have lots of shorts all costing much more than the Galibier yet these are the pair that I reach for first.

  25. Dermot David O’Connor (verified owner)

    Excellent service and product. Ordered on a Friday and arrived the following day.

    Have had three rides in them so far and very comfy with excellent quality throughout.

  26. Clifford Mason (verified owner)

    Very comfortable shorts the pad is excellent. They did ride up slightly but not enough to complain about really. I’m 5ft 7in and 64kg and small fit perfectly.

  27. grant (verified owner)

    Every bit as good as the Classiques, if not better! Fabric is a bit less compressive and Galibier recommended a medium for a good fit. At 5’9’/155 lb/32 inch waist, the medium is perfect fit. Great set of bibs!

  28. johnston.irj (verified owner)

    Brilliant shorts, completed a century ride in comfort. Easily on par with my Assos shorts which were more than twice the price of these. Just ordered another pair for a week cycling in Girona

  29. Matthew Killops (verified owner)

    These shorts could easily sell for twice the price and you’d still be getting good value. Light, comfortable, and a great pad. I’ve never left a review before, but these shorts (and the Galibier service) deserved a mention. Buy the shorts, enjoy the ride.

  30. Stephen (verified owner)

    Another comfy short win from Galibier. This is my third pair of their shorts, The first classique shorts were super comfy but didn’t like bib on them, I did not put me off as I went on to buy the Pro5 and now these Peloton’s. The Classique had a very compressive lycra but these are much less so, I followed previous sizing and the chart to opt for a medium for my size 30 waist and just under 36 chest (5’10) and while not quite as figure hugging on my climbers legs the fit is good, a few wee wrinkles but super comfy and much easier to get on and off. The leg length is spot on and all black looks pro. First impressions are these are perfect, even when riding a local TT on the rivet! I have ridden previous Galiber shorts on day rides over 150 miles and 11,000ft climbing and expect same comfort here – the pad is easily the measure of the big and more expensive brands. Service fast as usual, don’t see any reason not to buy Galibier shorts now as nothing comes close for this price. I don’t see huge differences with my Pro5 in terms of comfort, just a slightly different fit (bit closer, I think you can size down on the Pro5 to be honest). Great kit!

  31. GregM (verified owner)

    Really good pair of shorts, pad is top quality, unbelievable value for money.

  32. Mark, Dorset (verified owner)

    Unsure about the correct sizing for bib shorts I emailed Miles at Galibier for advice. After a prompt response to my email, I received my new shorts first thing on the Tuesday morning after only ordering mid-afternoon on Saturday – how about that for speedy service? I managed a quick 18 mile spin before work today to try them out and my first impressions are really positive. Whilst these are only my second pair of bib shorts ever, by comparison to the ones I had these are streets ahead in terms of fit, comfort and quality. The seat pad seems really thin on first inspection but don’t let that put you off – normally I feel the saddle during my ride and shift around a lot, but I barely noticed anything today. These Peloton bibs are my second piece of clothing I’ve bought now from Galibier (I also have the Mistral 2 jacket which is great) and I certainly plan on coming back again to extend my cycling wardrobe. Great service and quality product! Thanks Miles – keep up the good work!

  33. martin (verified owner)

    I broke these in on the Sa Calobra last weekend in temps up to 98 degrees they performed absolutly brilliantly. The pad is exceptional and the shorts displaced moisture and was never an issue even though it was like cycling n a hair dryer. The only minor iritation was where the seams cross on the leg did start to rub a bit, but hopefully this will receed with washing and wear. Why pay stupid money for other companies clothing when Galibier price and quality is superb.

  34. Paul Mcgovern (verified owner)

    Fantastic fit lightweight shorts with the right amount of padding in the right places! More comfortable than much more expensive shorts and great customer service! Have recommended galibier to many friends!

  35. jmccambridge (verified owner)

    Really good fit and extremely comfortable. The padding is best I’ve had to date. Absolutely fantastic product and excellent value.

  36. David Baker (verified owner)

    Lightweight, cool and comfortable, I never notice them on rides. Used on Dragon Ride Etape Wales and a week in the Alps including Telegraph/Galibier. Joined my set of core bibs, these for summer. The price is a steal. 169cm/71kg I wear medium.

  37. Gavin (verified owner)

    The padding is like nothing I’ve experienced, sitting on a cushion of air! Very comfortable all around! Top product!!

  38. R Loughran (verified owner)

    Worn in a gruelling 128km stage of a 3day race event in sweltering heat and saddle comfort was never an issue. Chamois is lightweight, cool and unrestrictive. Large at 5″9 and 72kg is ideal for me. My new go to race shorts. Brilliant.

  39. Jamie (verified owner)

    Loving these. I’m 5’11 and 82kg and bought a L. Great fit and performed really well on my first ride out of 49.9 miles (my comp said 50 but strava disagreed!)

    Great pad and agree that I hardly felt like I was wearing them. Grippers are good without being too tight and rubbing. Great under a lightweight jersey for the hot weather we’re currently having.

    Definite value for money and can’t wait to wear them on the London 100 in a few weeks.

  40. Nick (verified owner)

    Ordered a pair of these as I don’t ride well in hot weather. Bought the XXL as I’m 6ft and about 15 1/2 stone /100kg.
    Sizing was perfect.
    The 1st ride? 32 miles and 3000ft of climbing – I didnt even notice them, no adjustments straight from the word go. Another great bit of kit from Galibier!

  41. Hans Beumer (verified owner)

    Just received my Peloton bib-short last week. After advise from Miles(from galibier) I decided to order a size L. (1.80 and 90kg.)
    I took it to the test (without riding it before…quite some risk….) at the “Jean Nelissen Classic”. An organised ride in Luxembourg. I rode 125km with 2500 altitude meters (if that is the right expression). 6 hours+ in the saddle.
    All this at 25+ degrees Celsius, on a very humid day.
    The Peloton bib short worked really fine for me. Good fit, comfy pad. They say there is only one chance for a first impression. Well, this was it, and it was very good.

  42. Andy Ryan (verified owner)

    Wow! Awesome, subtle, cool in hot weather and very comfortable.
    Superb value.
    70kg and 168 cm – medium

  43. Nick (verified owner)

    Super comfortable. These are my 3rd different different bibs from Galibier and they have all been excellent. Well worth the money. I’m 168cm/54kg and the ‘Small’ fits perfectly.

  44. Frank

    Great fit and very comfortable. Whilst only tested on runs of 30-40 miles, the pad is best I’ve had to date. Super product and great value
