Velobici Van-Abel/Van-Dapper Bibshorts


Price as reviewed:

This product is featured in: Bibshort Test: £71 – £130.

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.


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