Classique Premium Bib shorts

Rated 5.00 out of 5 based on 8 customer ratings
(8 customer reviews)


Our Classique shorts are over a year in development and they stand and perform beside any premium short at ANY price.

They are constructed from durable, fine stitched Carvico Lycra with a compressive feel for excellent muscle support.

The bibs have 3 different mesh fabrics supporting a single stretch brace, to hold the shorts firmly and the pad locked in place. For total, all day comfort in the saddle, our Classique bibs have flatlock stitching throughout to prevent chafing, and a new,  leg gripper that provides fast grip which you can stretch to suit your own leg width without it becoming baggy.

The shorts also have a race radio/card pocket.  A complete package at half the retail of shorts using the same components. The endurance chamois pad, stretches bi elastically, with the body as it moves during the pedal revolution. It will last for seasons without compressing, supporting the pressure points of the pelvis. A central penile tract groove promotes smooth blood flow. Construction is just under 3 hours per pair and they are hand finished and quality checked.







In a factory on a winters morning we purchased their best (+ most expensive) silicone edge gripper. We also purchased the single stretch bib brace to build the upper short around. 300kms later we were in a nice, white studio buying our main material; a soft, matt-finish Lycra with a high Elastane content. The third most expensive, but most durable, out of 12 offerings. One month later,  a visit to the pad manufacturer, was an education in science and sweating. Mapping the padding to the rider’s bones (not flesh) and removal of moisture were proven keys to endurance comfort.

    The shorts arrived yesterday and as always, would like to review. They felt very tight when first put on but, stretched the leg gripper astray advised and felt OK. Im 13 stone and the XL are a good solid fit. Got my first ride today and the seat pad is just invisible, like it should be. If I was in my ‘winter weight’ I would go for the XXL as the are a tight feel but can’t fault the materials or quality.

    Just back from First training ride in the Classiques and I’m am super impressed. Love the style and materials. These are a large and I’m usually between a M/L in brands and glad I went up. Found Galibier from a pal (thanks Kev) and I will be back.

    Received today and very impressed with the quality definitely no exaggeration from Galibier on this, the seat pad and quality of construction is excellent. I am no lightweight however the sizing is on the modest side and my XL seemed very short in the body so will be returning and ordering XXL.

    Wore today on a 2 hour ride. Fit and pad very comfortable. I take a medium which is a tight compression fit as described. One problem could be if you need a comfort stop as you will have to strip off to cope as the bib is high and tight!
    Excellent value and highly recommended.

    Did my first 3.5 hour spin today. Size up from normal Galibier sizing and get the best shorts available!

    Worn twice, great bib shorts. Comfortable, functional and stylish all for a competitive price. I even had a bad crash on second spin, ripped skin off my thigh / hip and the shorts haven’t a mark on them somehow? Tough as well.
    Full marks all round.

    These are very well made bib-short and fantastic value for money. I rode the Mistral tights all winter and these have the same or similar chamois so I knew they’d be comfortable. As other reviewers have said, they have a high front and back. My experience is that they fit fairly tight based on the size chart – I am 5’10” and Large fits neat around the shoulders but is comfortable when riding. These are now my go-to day-to-day bib-shorts and pair nicely with my Pave jersey with matching grippers.
