Ale women’s bib shorts: our review - Epic Road Rides Back to top

​Alé women’s bib shorts

I bought a pair of Alé women’s bib shorts in November 2016. I absolutely love them.

The best thing is the high cut across the stomach that is really comfortable. The long lines are flattering, and I’ve found the shammy excellent, even on three hour plus rides.

  • Alé bib shorts have a wonderful cut that comes up nice and high across the stomach and means everything stays in place without feeling restricted.
  • ​Excellent chamois - I've done four hour rides in these without any discomfort...
  • ​Good, wide leg grippers that stay in place without causing any discomfort.
  • ​The material feels like it provides light compression and support, without being too tight.
  • ​A personal thing, but I like the length of the shorts as they're not too short.


  • The colours are bold - not a good choice if you prefer to keep a lower profile.
