Details

Morvélo's Skye Race Bib Shorts combine uniquely stylish graphics with exceptional levels of technical expertise. Their reputation for creating some of the best fitting shorts on the market continues to grow.

They'll keep you comfortable on the longest rides, thanks to their exhaustively tested double-layer chamois padding - in fact, they've been successfully tested on rides up to 24 hours by Morvélo's Test Team, including national champions and international racers. The two layers of memory foam reduce pressure points and maximise shock absorbtion without sacrificing ventilation.

Morvélo's 'Power Lycra' is made by Italian experts MITI to add a snug compression fit that eases muscle fatigue. Meanwhile, the gripper elastic keeps a firm but comfortable grip around the thighs, whilst the high stretch perforated mesh on the bibs provides total flexibility. If anything let's you down on a ride, it's unlikely to be these shorts.

 

Size Guide

Morvélo shorts are designed - along with most cycling shorts - to be a tight fit to enable the compression qualities of the Lycra to work while not being constrictive. 

When trying on the Skye Race bib shorts they will initially feel tighter than other shorts of the same size. They will loosen a little after the first couple of rides as the material relaxes to provide pro-level support and fit.

Who's Behind It?

Oli Pepper and Dave Marcar are bike nuts to the core. They've spent most of their lives riding and racing all kinds of bikes, plus nearly as long in the worlds of graphic design and branding. In 2009, they decided to combine their passions and expertise and created Morvélo - to encompass cycling 'in all its forms'.

Since then, from their Brighton base, the firm has grown through private financing from their friends and customers - often one and the same! Today they are amongst the rising stars of the British cycling sector. They remain independently owned an proudly British, and so able to put their own distinctive mark on their ever expanding range of stunning cycling gear. They explore themes that combine cycling with wider influences from art, fashion, film and music. And they do it with real individuality and class. Their women's range is growing fast, and they have 'real' women as part of their team both to design and test all their products. Just some of the reasons why we like them so much!

On top of their great clothing, they are always looking to expand their influence within the cycling world more broadly - hence their collaborations with brands as iconic as the Tour de France, the Bicycle Academy and Look Mum No Hands, and cycling events. They are going places, and we're going with them...
