Race ready bib shorts made from advanced materials
My first Isadora bib short this summer. I must say it is one of my best ever bib short, good pad, nice cut and it sits spot on. Cools down in the heat, light and soft to wear in the summer heat here in Spain. Size is perfect.
Designed to offer top performance for all types of training and racing, the Echelon Bib Shorts are treated with two technologies: Coldblack® and 3XDRY®, to ensure they are up to the challenge of performance-focused riding. Coldblack® technology protects from UV radiation and disperses heat on hot days. The bibs are also faster in absorbing and transferring sweat than other textiles thanks to 3XDRY® treatment.
The Elastic Interface chamois has had carbon fiber woven into the material to enhance its antibacterial properties and improve moisture transfer.

- Lightweight, breathable, elegant fit

The exterior of the material is water and dirt repellent. At the same time, on the inside of the textile perspiration is quickly absorbed and transported away from the body. Moisture is distributed over the surface and evaporates rapidly. As a result, textiles with 3XDRY® dry much faster in comparison to conventional textiles.
UVA- and UVB-protection textile finish from Schoeller Technologies. coldblack® reduces heat build-up and provides reliable protection from the sun’s rays.
The original Elastic Interface® pad for extra long distance rides, representing the latest in terms of chamois technology. Innovative structure featuring a multidirectional curvature that delivers prefect fit and great stability in the saddle.

Excellent ShortsBrilliant pair of shorts, very comfortable, flattering, great material, a great buy :)Show full review
Nice bibsThe quality of the materials used and the craftmanship in this product is simply superb. While the chamois is very comfortable, however, it feels a bit bulky "at the front" and tends to create some chafing (with my anatomy). The material seems a little bit warmer during summer rides than my other bibs from Gore, but this makes the Echelon a good choice also for slightly cooler days. Legs are running a bit long - an inch less in length would make them fit even better.Show full review
Simply the bestFantastic quality. Superb fit, very durable, comfy. Only on very hot days I switch to the light version.Show full review
Excellent chamoisI’m 181cm x 80 kg, size M is a perfect fit. I really didn’t notice I had this bibshorts on when riding, which is optimal. The Elastic Interface performance chamois is, hands down, the best I tried. The front part, very large and shaped, takes care of a male’s anatomy in a simple and well thought manner. It’s comfier than my assos S9 bibshorts. The materials are a bit warmer than expected, frankly I wouldn’t use this in summer. The front panels are made of sort of woven material which I just don’t like aesthetically, but is a minor issue. I’m happy with my purchase.Show full review
Just Received (even better) Second BibsI have two of these. The first I purchased these about 8 months ago. The second, I just received. The first pair ended up with a minor issue where the sewing that keeps the chamois in place started to unravel. The new pair seems overall the same except that the sewing of the chamois much different/better. There are more loops? in the sewing and the seams just look smaller and tighter like a work of art. I was surprised when I contacted support about my old pair and they sent DHL to pick them up and sent them from US to Slovakia and repair them. So cool . The old pair has no issue with the material having wear or anything, so it's great to not throw away clothes that can be repaired. I have been trying other brands of bibs but I keep going back to these. Something about the schoeller material is more appealing that other high end bibs that I have tried.Show full review
My first Isadore Bib Shorts - Impressed!Bought and tried my first @isadoreapparel bib shorts, the I7A3O7E Echelon Bib shorts yesterday. This Isadore Echelon is constructed with high quality fabric coated with Coldblack and 3XDRY treatment. The outer surface repels moisture, the inner absorbs sweat fast. Its amazing. Feels great just touching the fabric. Overall, it fits very well, with very good built quality and minimalist design for those looking for a high performance endurance bib shorts at a very decent price. The leg grips fit superbly and feel just nice, and it comes with the reflective strip. It is almost as good or better than my current Assos Cento bib shorts, which was more expensive by the way. I am Impressed! My height 180cm and weight 72 kg. Size S fits perfectly for me.Show full review
comfi!Also the front material is surprising (structured feel, not absolutely smooth / air tight); these bibs are actually fitting very comfortably. You don't feel them anywhere; The chamois is also nice and tight; 0 complaints!Show full review
Suoper nice shortsI'm 191cm and bought a L, fits perfectly! Would buy this shorts again. They feal great, actually you don't feel enything and that's the point. Even after riding for 5 and more hours - even climbing the Stelvio - they are comfortable.Show full review
The search is over.I've been cycling since the late 80's and through the years tried countless of different bicycle shorts, in my quest for "the perfect pair" ... But the search is over now. The best BIB shorts I've tried are the Isadore Echelon BIB shorts. They fit so perfect that you feel "naked" while giving you all the support and comfort you need. Cool when it's warm and lovely neutral in colour and design. A true classic is born.Show full review
Great for longer rides!I bought a pair of these in size S and used them on a multi day ride in a Taiwan, one day including 80kms with over 3000m in climbing. These bibs were perfectly comfortable. Loved them so much a bought a second pair but sized down to XS for a tighter fit (the material is not as compressive as say the Climbers shirts). I’m 168cm and 63kgs. Great service from the Isadore team!Show full review
Best Bib I haveIn my cycling wardrobe, you can find: Assos, Rapha, Castelli, Santini. But nothing beats my Isadore Echelon. The best Bib I've ever tried. No problems, even after a 190km ride, i felt really comfortable with them on my saddle. Great product.Show full review
My favorite oneOne of the best bib shorts I own - perfectly cut - wonderful to wear - just love itShow full review
very comfortableI really like my Echelon bibs. The only thing I could complain is that they are a bit too long (2 to 3 cm). I am 5,8 and wear size M.Show full review
DanielDie Hose passt bestens, das Sitzpolster ist hervorragend, die Nähte zwicken nicht, es ist meine Lieblingshose, ideal gerade für längere Ausfahrten. Beim Tragen performt die Hose wie keine andere. Wenn nur die Stoffqualität mithalten würde; über dem Sitzpolster verschleißt der Stoff meist zuerst, so auch hier, nur ist dieser Verschleiß vergleichsweise schnell, nach rd. 24 Monaten der Benutzung aufgetreten, die diese Hose im Wechsel mit 3 anderen mitgemacht hat (ca. 12.000km/Jahr). Andere Exemplare haben länger durchgehalten, deswegen darf ich mich wohl etwas früher wie erwartet von meiner Lieblingshose wieder verabschieden.Show full review
By far most comfortable bib short I've used so far!Chamois is super comfortable even on longer rides (150k), Material is breathable and not heating up like other black bib shorts. Size small fits me very well (174cm, 65kg). I can definitely recommend the echelon bib short and will get another one for myself!Show full review
Markus B.Fantastisches Produkt! Insbesondere für warme Sommertage. Die perfekteste Bip, die ich je hatte. Sie ist jeden Euro wert. Größe L ist für mich perfekt - Ich messe 187cm bei 74-75kg.Show full review
Awesome bibs, very probably one of the best ones on the marketSo far I did only one 105km ride in these bibs and I felt absolutely no pain or uncomfortable pressure. For me this is quite unusual because above 70-80km for some reason the skin under my right sitting bone pretty often gets irritated. The design is extremely minimalistic, absolutely no signs or anything unnecessary. As the quote says on the box from Dieter Rams, "Good design is as little design as possible". On both leg grips there is a reflective line which adds extra visibility -> safety (even if small, it counts). Both the chamois and the fabric are of very high quality. Sizing is an extremely subjective topic so bare this in mind. I personally bought a size S and the fit is perfect for me. I am 185cm tall and around 77kg, leaner build. I personally like wearing my cycling clothes as tight as possible without any uncomfortable pressure though. I wanted to get the tightest fit possible without feeling uncomfortable in the bibs. Same for the Echelon jersey. If you are uncertain about your size, I recommend contacting the Isadore staff, they are very helpful.Show full review
I´m impressedPurchased these bib shorts and I have to say they work really well. Just came back from my third longer ride and I love them. They have a good fit, are comfortable and the chamois works really well. I am 75 kg, 180 cm and ordered the sizing M - perfect! Yes the Echolon Bib shorts have a mininimalist design but thats part of the Echolon philosophy. So I knew what I ordered. Keep it up Isadore!!Show full review
Not as good as the climber bibsThe chamoix pad is simply not good enough - to much structure and why not stick to the climber chamoix? One of my frinds bought a pair and he last only 20 minuttes in these. I can ride with them but they are not my favorits.Show full review
Not ImpressedLet me begin by saying that I love Isadore and everything for which the brand, and its founders, stand. My previous purchases had all been simply outstanding and I wanted to give their top-of-the-line (supposedly) shorts, a try. Unlike their other shorts, these have only straps in the back for a minimalist design and feel. They've allegedly upgraded the chamois and the fabric from both their climber's bibs and their standard shorts. Whilst their standard shorts have a just-not-there sort of feel (or lack thereof) to them because they're so smooth and the fit is nigh unto perfect, and their climber's shorts are so lightweight and thin they are most definitely cooler than other similar shorts, these, well, these are just ugh. Fit is bad as they bunch around the outside of my hips. I'm constantly pulling them up to adjust the chamois, and the chamois is simply not comfortable. It just doesn't fit right and the padding seems like it's less than their other models. In short, I'm extremely disappointed. If I'd known, I'd just have ordered another pair of their standard shorts. Oh, and FYI, I'm 5'7" and 135 pounds.Show full review
