These luxurious 3/4 length thermoactive cycling bib knickers from Morvelo provide just the right amount of coverage when cycling shorts aren't enough. Not only does the longer leg length give you extra warmth, it also flatters the shape of your legs.
Morvelo's StormShield bib knickers are made from MITI SuperRoubaix fabric, which sounds super exciting and we can asure you it is. The brushed-back fleece inner holds the heat in and the micro-fibre weave lets sweat evaporate. So in effect, the fleece warms your legs and at the same time cools them down, releasing moisture.
Its award winning Italian Dolomiti chamois pad is created from two levels of high density memory foam, which uses the latest aircell technology to reduce pressure points - so your bum gets the best saddle experience! The first level supports the hip and pelvic bones, leaving the perineal area free from pressure and discomfort - absorbing shocks caused by bumpy rides. The second level of perforated foam ventilates and sorts out the moisture. Then its covered with a soft, resiliant outer layer for pure saddle satisfaction.
For additional comforts, theres all the tiny but significant features: StormShield Water Repellent treatment to stop rain seaping through, windblock to prevent a chill, brushed fleece-back straps for insulation, flatlock stitching to stop itchy irritations, printed gripper elastic around the calves and reflective detailing.
It doesn't take much for Morvelo to impress us... They've gone all out and extensively tested these bib knickers in short and harsh Crit and Cyclocross races, as well as 24hr solo MTB races! The results: incredibly adaptable and perform to the highest standard. Raising the stakes high for quality bum comfort.
Morvelo Size Guide
Note: Morvelo's sizing is pretty 'realistic' if you are used to UK sizing. Bear in mind, however, that the cut is deliberately fairly snug and fitted to keep you aerodynamic and unflappy on your ride!

Morvelo's StormShield Bib Knickers have been treated with a Durable Water Repellant finish (DWR), which keeps the outer fabric from becoming saturated so that the breathable barrier can do its job. Morvelo strongly advise that this coating needs to be replenished periodically, using treatments such as: Grangers Spray-On, McNett Revivex, Nikwax TX-Direct or Tectron DWR Treatment.
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 2008, they decided to combine their passions and expertise and created Morvelo - 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! They are proud never to have needed to open things up to big investors, meaning they've been able to grow steadily and to create exactly the designs that they are passionate about.
Today they are amongst the rising stars of the British cycling sector. Morvelo remain independently owned and proudly British, 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!
