The Isadore Bib Short collection Road Map

At Isadore, we firmly believe that the most important decision you can make for the comfort of your ride is which bib shorts you will wear. You can debate all day about tire width and tire pressure, but if you get the bibs wrong, then there’s just no way you are going to be comfortable enough to do the full ride you intended.

That’s why we made a big effort to create a collection of bib shorts for women and men to help everyone feel happy in the saddle.

And since there is a bit of choice in our lineup, here is our guide to help you decide on the right pair of Isadore bibs for you, with pro tips from Martin and Peter Velits.

Martin Velits

''I'm pretty conservative when it comes to bib shorts color. I made my decision a long time ago, that every bib shorts we ever do, they have to be black since I believe this is something that will never go out of style and you just can't go wrong there.''

''I always had a special relationship with climbing. That's why I wanted a product to be dedicated to my favorite part of riding a bike. Climbing is about finding your balance between the ambitions to get up the climb as fast as possible, but at the same time to dose your strength without flaming out.''

Peter Velits

“Chamois cream or no chamois cream? Always a yes for me. I have been known to turn around on a ride and go back home to apply some chamois cream if I have forgotten to do it beforehand. I have learned the hard way that you might be able to get away without cream for a day or two, but if you are going to ride your bike day after day and at a high intensity, then you will definitely pay for your mistake of not protecting yourself with some chamois cream.”

Martin Velits

“We were inspired by our longest ever ride on a bike (in terms of hours spend in a saddle) in South Korea last year in November. I wanted to pay a tribute to every rider whose passion is crossing hundreds of miles on bike in one go, and design a product that all of us “mere mortals”' could also use and enjoy.”
