Shorts, Tights & Suits
Our Équipe 3/4’s are based on our headline bib shorts for comfort and protection during longer, cooler rides.
Construction begins with Carvico’s Aero fabric on the ergonomic side panels designed specifically to reduce drag. This Lycra is also four way stretch to mirror the pedalling motion and eliminate the stress points at the hip and knee. The fabric stretches and retracts without creating any hotpoints or noticeable compression around the knee. Superlight Mesh at the front and centre back of the bib straps increases breathability and the wider and lighter neck panels eliminate pressure spots and create a uniform feel.
Our ProDry SL is a high performance chamois, ideal for long hours in the saddle. When you ride all day the chamois function is to reduce friction, remove moisture and protect from vibration. This pad is constructed via a 6 stage process that focuses on breathability, and a superior fit because it adheres better to the body allowing freedom of movement. The highest density support is located in the ischium (sit bones) area and greatly reduces friction and vibration when the pad is under stress. The entire pad is anti-bacterially treated during final assembly and is super soft.
The 44mm leg grippers are soft and secure silicone, sitting mid calf below the knee. They are 100% flat stitched to avoid irritation.
Your bike time just got better and your knees warmer.

The first item I’ve ordered from Galibier, and it won’t be the last. I am really impressed by the quality of these 3/4 shorts – the pad is excellent for a start and combined with the mix of fabrics I’ve had no issues during a number of 60+ mile rides so far and found them to be extremely comfortable. They are warm so far (down to 6 degrees so far) but don’t let you overheat when the temperature rises either.
So good 2 of my riding buddies have also bought some. Only minor downside is the grip around the calf can be a little tight if you have larger calves.

Ordered on a Tuesday, arrived the next day.
Used on a bright but chilly 6c day with galibier toe covers and was perfectly heated. Great fit, superb Chamois, should be a must for spring autumn kit
These are the 3rd interation of the 3/4 shorts that I’ve had from Galibier. They started off good and have got better each time.
The combination of fabrics, cut and chamois combine to make a very comfortable pair of shorts with the extra bit of length to help keep the chill out on those autumn mornings
