Women's Bib Shorts
Women's Soledad 2.0 Bib Shorts
The Soledad bib short was created to elevate your cycling experience using technical fabrics with understated details and hidden performance. Laser cut lay flat straps & new hybrid foam chamois provide superior comfort.
I am 5’7” and about 125 pounds, and the XS is my size for these. While my hip measurement is squarely in the XS range, my waist is on the upper end of the Small size, but the XS fits well! They fit great throughout my thighs and don’t have excess rubbing at my inner thighs, unlike other pairs of shorts where I have to size up to fit my waist. I also tried the Eliel Laguna shorts in both a XS and S, and even the small was too uncomfortable on my waist to keep. This was the first pair of bibs I ever tried and I’m thinking it will be bibs from here on out - I already ordered a second pair of this same style after a month of 1-3 hour daily rides in the first pair! Also note that they did stretch and conform to my body a tiny bit with wear, so I’m glad I started out with them fitting a tiny snug!
I have several of the Leguna Seca shorts and love them so decided to try out the Soldad shorts. The material is a bit lighter/cooler than the Laguna Seca but still feel like they are quite durable and will last many years. The chamois is very comfortable and I have ridden in them for up to 4 hours with no issues. The bib straps are light and you forget they are there. Worth the price!
With the Eliel bibs, and all Eliel products, I find have a great fit, perfect chamois, and quality of construction is top notch. I am among the larger women who ride and all their kits, bibs actually make me feel snug as a bug in a rug and super confident in my cycling gear. I have been using their gear past 4 years and just amazing quality. and we all know we want to look and feel good when we ride. This is it! Don't hesitate!
These bibs are amazing! I am new to cycling and I have one bib each from most brands and these ones are the most comfortable by far. I ride in hot conditions and they were breathable and wicking. I recommend to all new cyclists!! They keep you comfortable while you focus on learning everything important about cycling!
