CLASSIQUE bib shorts

(26 customer reviews)


Our best value bib short. Easy fit.  Sublime comfort and maximum protection.

We had a goal to offer a bib short of the highest specification at a fair price. We chose the same shape and variable density chamois we used successfully in our Equipe bib shorts and 3/4s; whose  ergonomic shape tracks the pedalling motion to give superb freedom of movement. This 3D  pad, retains performance and is perforated to maximise breathability. The transparent mesh upper is incredibly light and features high-stretch trims to eliminate chafing, without compromising on fit.  For the Classique shorts we use a single 4-way, soft stretch, lycra which remains 100% opaque at full stretch and is stitched to flush fitting, 45mm, soft leg grippers. They are easy fit and will stretch for all shapes.

The result is even greater comfort over long distances and a fully flat stitched garment that is comparable to ANY premium short on the market.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

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

    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.

    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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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!

  10. 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

  11. 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.

    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!

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

    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!

    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.

    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!

  17. jmccambridge (verified owner)

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

  18. 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.

  19. Gavin (verified owner)

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

  20. 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.

  21. 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.

  22. 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!

    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.

  24. Andy Ryan (verified owner)

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

  25. 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.

  26. 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
