Velobici Van-Abel/Van-Dapper Bibshorts review

Cycling Weekly Verdict

These would be ideal for tall, lean riders - shorter, stockier riders may want to go up a size and adjust the strap length.

The 89 per cent Meryl, 11 per cent Lycra mix makes these extremely comfortable.

Despite my longish body, the narrow straps were slightly too long and caused some nipple-rub when worn without a base layer.

The pad gives great coverage, making them supportive and comfortable in the crotch and is plenty thick enough for long-ride comfort.

Everything stays put, with zero chafing on 70-mile plus rides, even without chamois cream.
