Bad stitches

Used it for less than a year, all the stitches on one side are coming off. It's comfortable but quality control is bad. There is no wear, the stitches were just badly done.

Thank you for sharing your feedback on our bib shorts RCR.

I am sorry to read this bad experience with the stitches of our product.

Our production quality control is checking several key operations both on the production line and also as a final inspection.

I am very sorry to see that this product was not checked properly, please be insured that your feedback is precious and will be very helpful to help monitoring and improve our quality.

Again I would like to apologize for this unconvenience and I will contact you directly to offer a replacement.

Could be better

I really like Van Rysel line of products. Unfortunately these have lost all the elasticity at the cuff of the thigh so they are loose. I've had for close to a year but they are not my main shorts which are castelli and still hold strong after more than a year.

Best bibs I've had !

Getting right bibs is rather difficult and usually people need to try multiple ones to find just the ones to fit them right. i tried couple from online vendors that were cheap and not as comfortable for long rides, then I tried ones that were up to twice as expensive as these Van Rysel RCR ones, but the fit just wasn't right. These fit just perfect for me. the material used is soft, not thick, probably best for warmer days, they just "disappear" when you ride in them. The inseam length is just right, not too long and not short. The best part is the pad and sizing. Elastic Pad is superb for me, it's not thin but also not super thick, it is fairly dense and works really well for my bottoms. The sizing around the hip is tight as you put them on but once riding it's perfect, don't feel them on ! There is nothing rubbing, no extra material that would bunch up in between belly and the jewels. The cut in front is lower than other options I tried but it works well, an inch or two under the belly button. The suspenders are good, since bibs are tighter in the hip area, the elastic material just keeps everything in place so well that suspenders don't need to do much work to keep things from getting loose. I'm 5'10" at 195lb, pretty athletic build but being a bit older I have a small belly, pants size 34. I suppose the cut being lower, the little extra belly fat does not get in the way at all. Size large L works perfect for me. These are a bit tighter than some American companies size L but this seems to work great for me. I will definitely be buying another pair just in case Decathlon decides to change something with these - I hope they will not.

Very Poor Quality

Shorts wore out after only 2 or 3 months of normal use. Multiple holes appeared on the lower back and sides, and customer service said they couldn't do anything because I already wore them. Don't waste your money, get some higher quality bibs from Assos or Rapha and save money in the long run.

Comfortable and well priced.

They Work

I am worried about the think seems for the shoulder straps. They fit average but at this price you cannot go wrong unless you want to spend a couple hundred on better ones. I am a commuter of 50 KM's average a day.

Hi Andrew,

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts about the bib shorts you recently purchased! Stay safe on the road! :)

Great padding and comfortable fit

First set of full bibs. I usually wear shorts. Took a little getting used to as they ride higher across my stomach than my shorts.

Thank you for your review, we are glad they're working out for you. We hope to see you back on soon!


Can't get anything at this quality at that price. 200%

Great Value Bibshorts

I own the triban 500 bibs and after 3000k decided to get a new pair of bibs and upgrade to this pair. Read some concerning reviews about ripping or tearing but I have had them on for about 600k, 10 rides or so and they feel great and have had no problems. I like that they have longer legs than the triban 500 bibs.

Don't waste the money

I really wanted to like everything from Decathlon. However, it seems like the things that are good are the items that are impossible to screw up - water bottles, base layers, anything that is relatively simple. I have used this bib indoor ONLY. Ride ranging 1-2 hours, longest being a virtual 100km Zwift but the chamois problems already existed. I am not sure how the chamois is sewn in but pieces of mine are coming detached, which then rub against my skin/fold on itself inside the bib. Pretty disappointed, but, thats the risk you get. Seems to be spot on with some of the other reviews.

Excellent padding

They're really comfortable, even for long rides up to 8-10 hours. The padding is just excellent. Can't find anything of this quality at this price

Comfortable shorts, shame about the flashing

Comfortable shorts but about a year into wear they have begun to be see through where the rear panel stretches to the point where I can no longer wear them on rides without flashing my crack to anyone who looks. Spoke to customer service as they were in warranty, who told me that it was considered 'normal wear and tear' so it's pretty likely this will happen to yours.
