Bib shorts can be tricky to get right. Misplaced seams and an uncomfortable chamois can make the best looking bibs a chore to wear. ProCorsa apparel is designed by living, breathing, riding cyclists. They know the annoyance of a short that just doesn't fit quite right. They also know the beauty in finding a new favorite pair of shorts. And that's what they've got for you here.

ProCorsa leaves little to be desired with their bib short. 10-panel design ensures muscular support as well as comfort. Narrow straps and back provide uninhibited mobility. Multi-layer chamois often found in more expensive bibshorts. Silicon grip at thigh cuffs.

As with most European made apparel, ProCorsa garments can be tricky to size. We advise you to buy a size larger than what you would normally wear.

Buy a size larger than usual. Buy it!

These are a great value. These bibs truly deliver on their promise of long-haul comfort. Every bit as nice as my favorite shorts, these did far less damage to my finances. I did have to exchange my usual L's for an XL, but now that I'm in the right size, I'm pumped! I save these for my long weekend rides!

Fantastic, that's why I bought two more pairs

The regular price was way too spendy for me, but on sale these were great at I think $85 each. I've had one pair that I put about 4000 miles on before I bought the other two. I've tried a lot of different bibs. I do endurance events, so I find out with some pretty serious stress tests what works and what doesn't. The main great things about this bib is the nice and soft chamois that doesn't chafe even after 125 miles in the saddle. Part of this is because it's a little bit thinner chamois than others I've tried. A thinner chamois isn't always a bad thing they stay drier because they don't accumulate sweat like a big, bulky chamois would.

Great pair of shorts!

I really like these shorts, they cost less than some other brands and are really well made, I have found that they also last, I have no reservation in giving them five stars. I have several pairs of these and the oldest pair's stitching has started to unravel in places, I still wear it and it works great.

These bib's offer great muscle control, like the sense of compression, pad just right for long rides!

ProCorsa bibs for me at 59 kilo(142lbs) are snug but I like the sense of compression for the long rides I enjoy over 100km on weekends. Pad is very comfortable, not like a diaper at all, when down on drops everyone is good. Washes nice with sports specific laundry products. Does not retain any odors from hot rides with heavy perspiration. Have washed 7X. Leg grippers stay put - that I appreciate. For a guy who has surpassed 62 years I can still enjoy my sport in high quality Bibs and my wife says my legs still look great, toned! As recommended sizing when you are in the upper range of small, medium or so -take next size up you will not have to return then. High quality like Castelli, Pearl Izumi.

Excellent pair of bibs!

If you are looking for a great pair of bibs at a great price, consider these. I am a high-end bib user, Assos, Castelli, and De Marchi and wanted a mid-level pair for riding on bad weather days. After my first ride with these I almost hesitate to use them on those days. For the price, I got them on sale, they will perform right up there with the best. Do your self a favor and order a size larger. They do run really small and if you are tall, over 5'10 the straps might come up alittle short.

Good

I have used these bibs on trails and roads. The chamois is comfortable but a little narrow in the front.

They run small so I would suggest getting one size larger than normal. Overall a good deal for the price.

Ride on...

High quality for the price.

Well made out of high quality materials. I have ridden hard with this pair for up to 2-12 hrs and felt great. A bit snug but I don't like extra fabric moving around. The Chamois is well placed, dense enough for good support and comfortable. The leg grippers work well and stay put. Designed for the no nonsense price conscience rider.

Good But Tight on Legs

I'm a 6'1 240lb daily race commuter doing about 20 miles a day. I ordered 3 of the XXL bib shorts 'cause I don't weigh 150lbs and eat carrots all day. I wanted more comfort then having regular bike shorts that dig into my gut and my legs. They fit OK but not great. The torso length is a little short so the top straps are sort of popping as I pull them on. The leg openings are a little small for what I think XXL should be but are serviceable. The one awkward thing is the way they fit before getting onto the bike, they ride up in the back and make me waddle. It's a little uncomfortable but once riding it's fine.

Not for taller riders

Comfortable but I'm 6'2 and the shoulder straps are a bit too tight and creates soreness on rides over a couple of hours

Very nice shorts but run a little small

These are very nice shorts for the money. They run a little small so order the next size up. I'm 5'9 at about 150lbs and wear a large for this brand....

Great Shorts!

The shorts were purchased because I have one of their thermal tights that were outstanding. These are the same quality and fit perfectly. The fabric is great quality and I really like the padding. I wore these first on a 55 mile ride and I was not disappointed.

They run very small.

Club riding and touring. I knew they ran small from other reviews so I ordered a size up. Probably could have gone one more size. I wish they were cut a little lower in front. Other than that they are very comfortable and seem well made.

Good value, very small

Great value. A very good quality & comfortable. However, they run VERY small. I'm 5'10 175 lbs. I usually wear large in Castelli but I bought these in X-Large and they fit snugly.

Great Bib Shorts!

A great pair of bike shorts can make all the difference when you spend long hours in the saddle. These ProCorsa PRJ Evolution bib shorts are some of the nicest shorts you can own. They are very well made, yet light weight and extremely sexy for sure. For the money, you can't go wrong... just make sure to go at least one size larger than you normally wear.

Not the best, but on sale they're a great deal

I've got 3 pairs of these, bought all of them on sale.

Pros:

  • They hold up relatively well, considering I wash all of my cycling gear together, on the delicate cycle, in a washing machine, & then put them in the dryer on low. The chamois & stitching on my oldest pair remains intact after 12 months.
  • I also like that the pad is not super thick. It's thin enough that I don't feel like there's inches between me and my saddle, but comfortable enough for very long (100 mile) rides. No chafing, no rubbing, they grip well on the thighs.

Cons:

  • At 6'5, a tall size would be nice as they tend to dig a little bit into my shoulders. However, this is a very minor issue.

Comparison:

  • They compare well to the Castelli Endurance Bib Short
  • and are better than some old Descente, Campagnolo and Louis Garneau bibs that I have.

Great Value for the product

Very well put together pair of shorts. Did remind me of a much more expensive Bib Short...... Try them you'll like them if you're used to spending more for a pair of bib shorts.

Great fitting bib's for the long ride.

I am a fairly big guy at 210 lbs and 5'9 and I usually order an XL. These short run small and I had to return them for a XXL which fit great. Overall, I would recommend these shorts for a longer ride over 50 miles. They have nice compression and the chamois makes the ride enjoyable with no issues. I prefer these over my PI shorts.

Snug fit plus great chamois in a compression bib - built for speed.

I have used this bib for 10 rides: two 50 mile rides and a few quick 25 mile morning workouts and so far very satisfied. The chamois is very comfortable, providing ample padding while being thin, not bulky or thick. I had no discomfort or chafing from any of these rides and I use a Specialized Romin Expert saddle. It fits snug and stays tight and fitted to your body, making moving up and down the seat a seamless glide. The leg is a nice tight compression fit. With the snug fit it is built for speed. The one drawback is sizing - I am 140 pounds, 5', 7 and brought a medium and could have followed the advice and brought a size larger (although I have never worn a large size bib). The shoulder bands are a tad tight and the chamois is a little narrow, necessitating some adjustments while riding. I don't know if the chamois is narrow on the large size, and this is why I only gave it 4 stars. However, all in all, I brought the bib on sale and it was well worth it.
