Wish i had tried there stuff a long time ago. Their bib shorts are the best i have ever worn, and the fit is great. If you are tall, like me, check them out.
Why tall people?boy nigel

I was looking into Voler's bibs. I'm 5'5", and was hoping for a small, based on the sizing info on their site. Are they designed for long torsoed folks? Not the case here. Input's much appreciated.

Cheers,
Nige
Not just tall folks should check them out.Largo

Hey!
Sorry to be misleading. Their larger sizes work great for taller folks. Most xl size stuff assumes youre short and big around, Voler has it spot on. I am sure their smaller sizes fit just as well for everyone else. The pad they use is A-1.
The reason i mentioned the tall thing is that it is damn hard to find bibs and shorts that are long enough, and Voler works for me.
Try their stuff, its the best i've tried. Better than Assos or Castelli, IMHO. great customer service, too.
Have a good one.
would they fit me??jayz

im 6'2" 180lbs....and i take a size large in thier shorts..fit great!

im scared to go with a large in the bibs for fear of the worlds largest wedgie... but i think the XL might be too big in waist

any input? what are you specs?

Club had their jerseys a year or two back... cut a little longer than most with minimal elastic at bottom (better for taller riders), material was cheaper, just didn't have a good fit. More of a tourist cut. OK if you like that kind of thing...
Are you serious?cm

I've been riding over 16 years and never had saddle sore problems . . . until about 2 years ago when I started riding with a team supplied by Voler. I do like the lycra material and workmanship, but the Voler chamois gives me problems every few months. I use chamois butt'r every ride and never wear shorts more than once before washing. Now that the Castelli Y pad is being copied by most manufacturers, Voler would do well to upgrade the insert.

Anyone else had similar problems with Voler shorts/bibs?
I am serious, have you tried the new pad?LARGO
