Énergie Madison – Non bib shorts.

(8 customer reviews)


  • GBP: £36.33
  • EUR: €42.80

For those who prefer cycling shorts without a bib, we have the Énergie Madison, Super performance with a soft and secure waistband.

 A high waisted version of our best selling Énergie Elite shorts. We use the same Chamois where the supportive, 4mm Poron inserts are at the core of the Endurance insert.

 Énergie shorts use a single Carvico Lycra®. A Hard wearing lycra with anti-abrasive properties is used next to the chamois and on the inside of the leg where wear is most prominent. this lycra will reduce saddle movement and slide thus enhances rider stability.  For the rest of the garment we chose an aero Power Lycra. The textured finish permits the air to flow faster over the body and gives a light compressive support to muscles in motion. The short panels are computer cut to match the rider when in the cycling position. The end profile is clean, with structured panels shaped for optimal muscle support and least pedalling resistance. All are 4-needle-flat stitched for durability and a chafe-free, finish.


The Waist elastic is 30mm and sits over the pelvic bones for support and lower at the front-  to free the diaphram. The Logo-ed, leg grippers, finish the classic looking short with style and comfort. The Italian grippers are wider at 70mm and softer. Theeffective silicone is secure and won’t dig in to the skin.

    Hi, Tgese Energie Madison shorts are a complete revelation. I have never worn a more comfortable pair. I now have no discomfort while riding, or soreness at the end. I have a number of pieces of Galibier clothing but these are outstanding.

    I have been using Énergie Elite bibs for distance riding for the past couple of years and love them. However, they are not always the ideal choice for casual riding. The Énergie Madisons worn beneath a pair of regular shorts work really well. IMO the pad is the best currently available in terms of stability, absorbency and cushioning effect.
    I am 5’10” / 34” waist and L fits perfectly.

    At last a pair of non bib shorts that don’t cut into the waist or shift about. What a great pad done a few 100km rides without any discomfort. So good I’ve just ordered another pair.

    I am not a great fan of the bib shorts, but I am very happy with these. Very comfortable and also much easier to go to the toilet than the bibs! Highly recommend

    Love them! Changed my riding experience completly. Realy comfortable.

    These are great value. They’re cut sensibly so they don’t castrate you like Castelli shorts and are affordable (unlike Assos). My only gripe is that the cut means that the waist band is probably 30mm below the ‘optimal comfort location’for me, sitting more towards the hip than the waist. Just back from a 100Km ride and I can still walk and talk.

    Well made. Great materials. Lovely snug fit. Perfectly placed padding. A very good alternative to my excellent Galibier bib shorts when touring in hot weather. Another great product Galibier.

    I received these on friday and went out on a 40 mile ride on Sunday. Now I must say I have never worn padded shorts before but digging out a old tourer and fitting my old brooks saddle I decided to purchase these. I can only say they kept me warm and they are very comfortable I can’t judge them against anything else but all I can say I had no soreness what so ever. With these riding will again be painless.
