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

Poor Stitching

The stitching around the straps and navel area came away from the the seams after a few weeks. And, they have gone up a £10 in a year! On the plus side, the pad is excellent for long distance and the material also feels quality.

Comfortable but fragile bibs

Had been using Triban shorts and was quite satisfied but the build quality of those bibs let me down. Seams cracked about 2 months in making the bibs unusable. Wouldn't call it a good value for money. The bibs themselves are quite comfortable but a bit tight for the size

Comfortable, but a tad too small.

I bought the large as advised on the size guide. They are a just a tad too small. However, I need to lose weight, so when I do this, they will fit perfectly. They are very comfortable though.

Great value shorts

A well thought-out pair of shorts with a really good pad - I've had them out on rides of up to four and half hours and they're performing well. They're sized sensibly (not Italian-go-two-sizes-up) so if you're an XL in other Decathlon bits chances are you'll be an XL in these. Plus they're not horribly expensive!


Van Rysel have achieved the holy grail with these shorts - comfortable, stylish, cheap! 1. Pad is exceptional. I've the same pad in shorts that cost double the price, and know from experience, they are good for long rides (4+ hours) 2. Bands are soft and you forget they're on 3. The main material is tight - there isn't a huge amount of flex in them, but there's no danger of the shorts moving and riding up. Grippers are particularly good. 4. Looks - seriously, these are champagne shorts on beer budget.

Material issues

Tried two lots and all had material issues in stitching, excessive wear after one ride each. Fit not to bad though.

Struggling with comfort

These shorts are clearly a quality product, but I'm struggling with the thick padding; It leaves very little room for delicate parts and I find I'm having to constantly try to rearrange to find a comfortable spot - I have found that my delicate parts have completely ascended while wearing these! - it could just be me, but i have 2 other pairs of size medium decathalon shorts / tights and dont suffer the same issues.

Fantastic quality

Fantastic quality bib shorts for the price

I find that the material is rather 'see through so I will not use this outside, which is unfortunate. But is usefull for the indoor training sessions.

Good value for money.

Fantastic bib shorts. As good as some I’ve purchased for double the price. Do be careful on the size though. They are a good fit but a bit more snug than I anticipated.

Good Design Poor Quality Construction

I purchased these shorts in July 2020 and they have a hole in the side seam with under 20 hours of riding. Decathlon customer service has been excellent with a prompt offer of a gift voucher.

very comfortable

Purchased these bib shorts earlier in the year after reading reviews in cycling mags, great product with miles of comfort.

The go-to competition shorts!

With the RACER bib shorts, we wanted to create effective shorts with the perfect compression while still leaving you maximum freedom to move around on your bike. For us, performance isn't about short or long distances; performance encompasses everything. That's why we created a pair of shorts that performs just as well on any ride!

A new performance-oriented version!

We have listened to our users' feedback and used it to make a few improvements to these shorts: - longer for better aerodynamics, - straps with better support, - new mesh on the back for better heat removal, - redesigned elastics to hold the hem in place at all times, - new pad for optimal comfort. Discover this new version now and hit the road!

New endurance 2.5 hd pad

This pad is classed as a Performance Endurance pad. It's the follow-on from the Endurance 2, offering a more anatomic fit and improved protection for your entire undercarriage. We have applied very high-density foam under the top layer for maximum effectiveness on long-distance rides, guaranteeing comfort levels that last for up to 7 hours in the saddle.
