Keep your cool this summer when the mercury tries to climb out of the thermometer. The Descente Men's Avanti Pro Bib Short tries really hard to keep you from burning up with its Schoeller ColdBlack fabric, which reflects 80% of the sun's nastiness and cools you up to 10 degrees Fahrenheit. The Infinity Chamois is 3D molded to fit your crotchial region while you take care of propulsion, and the welded thigh grippers take care of any riding-up that you may expect to experience.

Excellent Bibs 2000 Miles & Counting

These have been my go to bibs for months and are working great. I'm 5'9" 155lbs and got the mediums. Descente doesn't seem to run as small as a lot of the other brands on here.

odd sizing

I am actually returning my second pair. I usually wear a med. in Pear Izumi bibs. The med in these was way too short in the suspenders, but the legs were good. The large was too lose in the legs, but good in the suspender length. The suspenders are also made of an odd fabric that is rather uncomfortable and cuts into my skin. The chamois is very nice though.

Ahhh glorious!

These are absolutely amazing! Most of the time I couldn't even tell that my saddle is there. They say in place, not too tight, look good and feel good. I'm 5' 2" and weigh 138, thick thighs, more of a wrestler build and the smalls are perfect. These are my first bibs so I when tried them on, they felt a little funny on the shoulders, but as soon as I got on the bike, pure comfort.

first bib

This is my first bib and I was pretty stoked. Comfortable--pulls everything up and just feel less compressed. good price, good bib

What an upgrade!

Prior to buying this pair of bibs, I only had a pair of low-end Pearl Izumi and Sugoi cycling shorts that I wore. Wow. What a difference. The chamois is very comfortable and I feel like I've been missing out on something for some time. The fit is a bit snug. I am 5'10" and 168# so I ordered the medium. If you have the financial means and have a similar build to me, I'd order both the medium and large and see which you like better. That's not to say that I'm displeased or uncomfortable. Far from it. I'm very happy with the fit and finish of this product. I'm not sure how useful the reflective parts on the back are since I wear a jersey over the top (as I am sure many do), but it's still a nice touch. The product seems well put together and will, hopefully, last for a long time. It was a very hot summer here in Austin so I had ample opportunity to test the effectiveness of the Cold Black technology. Honestly, I couldn't tell that much of a difference. Yes, my legs and lower body were slightly cooler, but I was hotter above my waist where the bibs provided support (by covering up flesh) that is lacking in a plain cycling short. A trade-off, perhaps, but I was still pretty hot when I'd get home from work and it was 100+ outside. All in all, this was a STEAL at $99 and I'm happy that I spent the money.

Nice Bib/ Not for tall Riders

Great bib, Coldblack fabric seems to work.
Must watch sizing, runs small, you definitely need to size up. I'm 6ft tall and straps are a bit binding, I couldn't imagine these bibs fitting anyone any taller. Tried both large and XL sizes hoping to maybe gain some length with the XL; there seemed to be no apparent difference in any aspect of the fit between the two sizes.

Great for century rides

Most comfortable worn ever of all century rides I have ridden. Only one consideration keeps it from being a 5-star. I am 6'3". The suspenders do not stretch. The constant pressure on my shoulders caused extreme pain by the metric century point. It needs to either have some give or, they need to offer a Tall version. I love the rest so much I am considering talking to a seamstress to add 1-1.5 inches to the shoulders so I can continue to wear them on my century rides.

What size did you get? I'm 6'4" and am thinking an XL.

Excellent bib shorts. I rode about 35 miles yesterday got no soreness.

Is the Descente bib size similar to...

Is the Descente bib size similar to Castelli?

Responded on

Although this piece fits more true to size, it is still a very race (snug) fit performance piece. I would probably order this in a size smaller than I would Castelli.

Responded on

I bought it, size down from castelli and they fit great, so I got a L in these to my XL in castelli Bibs

Nice Shorts

I've only had one pair of cheap Primal Wear shorts so these were a huge upgrade for me. I read a ton of reviews and figured I would have to size up so they would fit me but not so. I'm 5'8" 155lbs with a 32 inch waist and the medium was perfect. A bit snug but after about 10 miles I barely noticed they were there. I couldn't believe how much of a difference the chamois made. It may be that it is just because I've never worn a really nice pair of bibs but it was a huge difference. I actually bought the med and large and the large felt way to loose in the rear. I felt like I had a diaper on so i'm going to return that pair. Good luck

Descente Bib Short for Women

F.Y.I. - Ladies Bib Short available as well:

Responded on

I'm 6`0 ft tall and I wear a small. Would the length be too short for me in a small?

Do you plan to stock size Small? I currently...

Do you plan to stock size Small? I currently own the C6 bib short, and I comfortably wear Descente's size Small.

Responded on

It does not appear that we will be getting anymore size smalls in stock in the near future.

Responded on

For a while there I thought that I wrote that question. The Descente C6 is a brilliant bib shorts and Descente small tend to fit me just about right. It would be great to get these in small but check out the Gore Xenon Sonics. You may never want to wear anything else.

Responded on

I have an update! Size small will be available very soon in all three colors!

smalls are live! enjoy
