I bought these a few years ago, and they are probably my best fitting pair of bib shorts.
when I first bought them I didn't find them the most comfortable, but not as a more regular rider I see their benefits.
These are probably my second best pair now, but the others are three times the price Assos!
Great value, I am becoming a convert to bTwin as a whole
Right level of padding, firm, great fit
Bought two pairs of these to replace some older Decathlon compression bibshorts that i'd worn to death.
For me the padding us some of best I've used and really comfy. The new legs hems are good and fit well.
However the shoulder straps are pretty awful. I can see that Decathlon have tried to make them more comfortable but unfortunately they tend to slip off the shoulders especially when wearing a base layer leaving you feeling like you need to constantly adjust them.
Shame really as like the're great from the waist down.
Have been using the 700 series shorts for over a year now and these ones are as good as my previous ones. Have used them for long rides without issue.
good fit, good pad, nice design
I bought two pairs of these (inc matching tops). Good looking and good construction and use of materials, however I've found them to not be as comfortable as either my Lusso Progel bibs or a pair of Adidas supernova proficio bib shorts I own. So a bit disappointed. Pad seems very large in terms of its width (not thickness)and this became irritating after over 2hr in saddle. Never had this issue with the Lusso or adidas (or my cheapies). I read somewhere that the straps are quite wide fitting and I would agree with this. Decathlon need to make a few tweaks to make them perfect.
Thank you for your valuable feedback. I will forward your comments on to the product designer at b'Twin.

This was my first purchase of Bib Shorts. The fit was great with no issues about slipping off my shoulders. I am 5ft9, 33/34 waist. So far my longest ride in them is about 64 miles. They are incomparably better than of my other 3 pairs of regular shorts. I used chamois cream but am inclined to believe they would have been just as comfortable without it.
I may buy another pair in the alternate colour strip.
Price. Fit. Performance. Appearance
I am 6ft and 100kg, XL was a perfect snug fit. These are on a par if not more comfortable than my other premium branded bib shorts that cost £120 more.. Only minor point was some shoulder strap slippage when off the bike at the cafe stop but not a problem when on the bike.
Really like them and so long as they last ( No issues at moment but only used a few times ) will be great value for money.
The gel pad is really good and i have been on 2 hour rides without any issues not sure this would be the case with non gel padding but not willing to try.
Gel padded seat
Very impressed with the Btwin stuff, i have bought the winter 700 kit before and as i was very pleased with that so decided to get some summer gear too and i'm very happy with it too!
the fit is nice and snug and the chamoise sits in the right place and is super comfy even on 100mile rides.
if i was being very critical i do find the tops of the shoulders (above collar bone area) slightly flappy in the wind, but as i say being critical!
premium quality at a very competitive price
After reading a review regarding size being on the small side.
I'm 5.7 with a 32 waist. When using the large size, although the fit seemed fine the straps kept falling off my shoulders.
I got myself a medium size & it fits nice & snug. Also the straps stay on my shoulders.
I wouid say, the sizing is correct. If you're usual size is a medium, sticky to a medium. Of course everybody's body shape will differ slightly. In my case, I found the item to be of good quality & the staff at the Croydon, Purley way branch very helpful.
I will gladly recommend this product to my friends.
This is a great bib short, I now have 2 of these in different colours. I had to go for the XL as I have quite large legs so it's worth while trying these on in store before you purchase.
I have this design and the grey green. You can tell they have been designed aboard though as I would have preferred the coloured stipe to be one n my right leg (off side) for a bit more visability on the UK roads.
The right amount of padding in all the right place
Having to wear an XL :(
