Steve S Exceptional product. The Lusso kit I have has always been excellent, and it is made with decent, realistic sizing. Merlin service, ordering and delivery all quick and efficient, will shop again.
Mr Yarm Great fit and super comfortable. Just did a 60K weekly ride on them and they really held out! Considering getting another set!
Bnaya L Super comfort!
Ben Feel like good quality shorts. Medium fits me well, ii`m 5`11" and 32" waist 30" inside leg. Padding is nice.
Barry Very good, comfortable to ride in
Neil Wow, I'm impressed. UK made; I'm sold! Fantastic sale price; the quality of the bibs surprised me; really great! Very pleased; and do they ever feel good on. I'm only 5'6" (167cm) and 140 pounds (63.6 kg) and I ordered MEDIUM. Waist is about 30" (76cm). They fit just the way I like; snug but not road bike race tight; that's what I would have got had I ordered size small I presume. I noticed that they are the longest bibshorts I have ever bought. Leg grippers are so comfy, I don't care. I am betting that there are chaps who are ordering size small based on the size guide. I am glad I ordered the next size up. Thanks again Merlin! They arrived in my mailbox in Canada in one week! Time to order more of these. Cheers....put yer feet up!
Ula Ordered this for my husband who is 190cm tall. They run a bit short on him. Otherwise, they look like a good pair of bibs and the material & pad seem to be good quality! Good bargain just beware if you're tall!
Mr Yang 2nd order. Shorts are comfortable for long rides and price is very good.
Mr Clarke I have been a user of Lusso cycle clothing for many years. They are long lasting and a good and comfortable fit and the equal of many higher priced garments.
Mr Apostolou Very well made and really comfortable. Great buy
Michael Three 50 mile rides so far and no issues. Very comfortable.
Mr Fielding Good fit and decent padding where you need it
Mr McHale Had these for three weeks and I think they will work for me. Large pad keeps all the important bits protected and and gel pad seems to do the trick at the rear. They have very good reviews in the press.They look pretty good and fit well, so I've ordered a second pair. My only small issue is that the leg grippers at the bottom feel a little flimsy and slightly too long and mine arrived with a small nick out of the bottom part. ie they don't quite look like the photo. But hey, I'm glad to get a pair of shorts that do the job, so no worries.
Ken Great value, very comfortable chamois, good length leg (ie not too short!)
Mr RODGER I bought an identical pair from Merlin a few months ago and they are the most comfortable cycle shorts I have ever used.
Mr McLennan I was shopping for a pair of Bib shorts that offered some extra padding for Cycle Oregon (a week long cycling event here in the States) and ran across these on the Merlin website. After 400 miles and some 23,000 feet of climbing, I can honestly say that these are some of the most comfortable shorts I have ever owned. They offer just the right amount of padding to keep you comfortable on long rides, and are exceptionally good looking to boot. They are a fantastic value, and I'll be ordering more pairs of these in the future. Bravo to Merlin for offering such an excellent product at an affordable price!
Beaver Guy, Scotland I have chunky thighs, but shorter legs so struggle to get a good fit in bibshorts. I normally end up getting a large, but these were too long in the leg for me, but had to send them back, which was disappointing as the quality and feel looked great
Mr White Comfortable, the gel insert works well on long distance rides. I`ve been using these bib shorts for a couple of years and purchased two pairs as extra for the cycling wardrobe.
Mr McAulay My second pair of Lusso bib shorts. Can't recommend them enough. Just completed the Skye supportive (94 miles) without any aches or pains
Mr Busfield I'm just into cycling and have been using cheep gear but decided to get something 'better'. These weren't expensive but are much more comfortable. Love them!
Brendan I was going to buy castelli in the sale but after reading the reviews bought these instead. By far the comfiest shorts I have and made in Manchester!
Barry Fairbrother Very comfortable shorts. A bit early to assess durability, but no problems so far.
steve A comfortable and well made pair of bib shorts. Got a second pair after realising that as a British sized product they are just the right size for me after ordering some of the more expensive Italian brand that I subsequently had to return at my own expense.
Stephen I have only had them for a few weeks, so far so good, longest ride in them 95 mile, really comfortable pad, I would like to try an x/s but sadly they only come in small, for me the leg grippers could be a little smaller for my skinny legs, there seems to be quite a bit of surplus material at the sides were the bib straps start, but this is hidden by my jersey, luckily the legs ride up as I ride & the grippers tighten up, although 5' 9 1/2" (176cm) I weigh 9 stone (57 kilo) in more expensive shorts I wear an X/S but the bib straps are a little tight on my shoulders, it is always a compromise, its a difficult thing to accommodate all shapes & size's with off the peg garments, so these are a good compromise for me, come on Lusso lets have some X/S to bring you inline with the big boys or rather the small tall guy's.
Mr Hood My 3rd pair of Bib Shorts and the best by a country mile. Very Comfy
Mr mojzisik As good as more expensive brands
mick Awesome bibs, my second pair now, great pad comfy fit, great price & British company.
steve W After disappointment with fit and quality of other bib shorts, I`m entirely happy with these Lussos. Uk sizing thats just right instead of the guesswork with fashionable Italian brands. Just ordered a second pai!r
Mr O Connor Very good .. did 140km no problems
Mr Croft These shorts always seem to fit me the best so I stick with them. They are well made and very good value.
Simon Love these shorts, very happy with them. The pad is so smooth and comfortable, I`ve got some Louis Garneau bibs and the pad was rough which caused some discomfort. I`ve only done one ride in the Lusso shorts but they were a revelation. Sizing wise I went for XL I`m 5`10" 95kg and 38" waist, fit snug but just about right would not want to go a size up.
Miss Shuttleworth brilliant, love 'em, great 100 mile shorts... fit like a dream, comfortable, pad in perfect place. Highly recommended. For reference, great for small women too....
DAZMAC Excellent bibs. Well made and very comfortable for 2 hour rides. Haven't tested them on longer rides as yet but I am very confident that they will perform well.
Colin Another pair of excellent cycle bib shorts, I cannot recommend highly enough. I have had Lusso kit for a few years now, never been let down. And Merlin cycles are an excellent company to deal with, extremely prompt service as usual.
Charliec These shorts are advertised by Lusso as "long distance". Jury is still out as far as I`m concerned. Worn once to date for a 4 hr ride and they were not significantly more comfortable than other similarly priced shorts. Hope they do better on 6hr ride which is what they were purchased for
Will First ride in these shorts was an 80 miler over the South Downs Way. Total comfort from the word go and all ride. No running from the seams unlike my other Funkier shorts. A little long in the leg but I'm a short arse so can't be helped. Very well made comfy shorts, don't delay, buy today!
Red5 Used it for the daily 2hr commute and so far so good. Very comfortable and performs as well as premium brands. Highly recommend for the price (sale).
Mr Putt These are excellent bib shorts. I am 174 and about 68kgs. I ordered SMALL size and they fit well. They are a bit on the tight side, which is what I wanted. They seem to be well made.
Mr Custer I looked over all the reviews of this product to determine the size that would be best for me. I ordered the large. I'm 5'10" - 5'11" and weight 210 lbs, about a 35" waist. The large is a bit small in the crotch. My bits were held very snugly in place by these bib shorts. It was a bit uncomfortable. The size issue I think is in the legs. I've got pretty meaty legs and the bib shorts are really tight in the upper thigh region which seemed to put extra pressure on the crotch. Also, the shoulder straps may be just a hair too short. If they were longer it would be a little less snug. Maybe if I get down to 190 these would be a little more comfortable to wear. I'm hoping they stretch a little over time. I don't know if the XL would be better or too loose. I love the chamois though. It's really comfy and doesn't chafe or anything. The quality of the fabric is about as expected for the price. If tightly stretched, it's see-through.
LLSHLL Comfortable for a long ride.
Mr coveley Arrived within a couple of days. Good fit, nice pad and well made. Will buy more pairs.
Mr Kaye Well priced on Merlin and these bib shorts are one of the best I have tried to date.
Howard 20 miles on a bike was my absolute max; my backside could stand no more! First I discovered the Giant Velo saddle and now these fantastically comfy shorts; now I'm ready for my first century ride.
Mr Long Pretty comfortable so far, leg bands not too tight, small size is right for me (30/32" waist, slim).
Martin Really comfortable well fitting bibs at a great price
Leylandlad63 Forget big branded offerings these UK made, yes UK made, shorts are first class. Very comfortable pad. First outing was an 80 mile effort over some unforgiving roads . Size Medium was true for me at 75kgs and 5'9.5''. If there was one thing I'd improve it would be that the front, it is a bit high and makes for slightly awkward loo stops.
Mr Stretton I bought these for a 5 day riding holiday in Mallorca. Straight out of the packet they felt comfortable and they more than up to the task of 5 days of riding in the mountains. Once again great service from Merlin.
Mr Salter Excellent shorts. Have used on one four hour ride so far and these were very comfortable
Mr Clough Very comfy and well fitted. Another good Lusso product
Mr KNIGHT 2nd pair fab value for the money
Andy Good quality shorts, they size a bit down as do most cycling clothes. I'm 6'0" 13st 34" waist and the XL is fine but it will depend on your torso length as the straps are not loose on me. I bought them for having a good pad, but after 25 mile ride not sure if it's any better than my cheap winter bib tights. So will have to see if they make it to my 140 mile trip later in year.
Jeremy These look and feel really good, but the sizing is not anywhere near the sizing chart. I am 175 cm (5ft 10) with a 32 inch waist. I don't have sprinters legs, but nor are they thin. I bought the Medium (as recommended by the size guide) and they are too big. The leg grippers are loose and there is excess material around the waist. If I was going to buy these again, I'd get the small.
Elizabeth My favourite go to shorts for a summer of Audax and touring. Comfort and durability
Craig H Impressed with quality, fit and finish of the Lusso bib shorts. Size L fits well (5'9, 95kg). As others have noted they are a little long in the leg but this does not effect comfort. Supportive and comfortable on longer rides.
Eric Size up big. Ordered the medium, I am usually a large. Legs are a bit longer than I am used to. Not an issue, just pull the legs up a bit. Seem good quality, pad and materials wise. Can't fault delivery and service from Merlin.
Matthew Medium fits my 79kg, 182cm tall figure better than the large as the 'give' in the material is enough to make them feel comfortable. As you may read elsewhere the pad is excellent 4hrs + easily.
Mr Moss They work ok. The pad is reasonable. They are not the most stylish out there. Overall, functional but not as good as my higher priced Castelli shorts.
Mr buick Lusso always give great value. The short are very low key, what's not a bad thing.. they are high waisted so being an Aussie probably better for the colder winter days! Size wise I'm 84-87cms waist 185cm high & 78kg mediums spot on. I think they are well worth the money
Mr Brand Very comfortable and supportive for long rides.
Richard Good fit and comfy. Large size worked well for me - 5'11'' 15st(+!)
John After all the positive reviews I read about Lusso Bib shorts I decided to try a pair.On opening the packet I found the Bibs to be beautifully made, fantastic light smooth material, flawless stitching and a seat padding that seemed more than adequate, all good at this point. Now for the ride, due to the fact that I am 98kg (on a good day) I found considerable discomfort in the butt area after about 60km, which became much worse at around 100km, disappointing. If you are around 75kg this may not be an issue, but when your in the cycling heavy weight division, it might be a good idea to try another brand. I'm 190cm /98+kg and XL fits like a glove.
Mr Albrecht Comfortable and well fitting. I am 182cm tall with 83kg. Size L fits perfectly
jose I am super impressed. I have some brand name bibs and their quality is nowhere near to this. These bibs are normal person true size. The 10 piece construction, makes them fit perfect. Material is really high end quality. I can go on an on, not enough words to describe this shorts. +++++++AAA
Aussie cyclist Great comfort, perfect sizing, delivered to Australia in good time, packaged well. Will be able to punch out 60km + rides easily. Dare I say the best bib short I have ever worn. Well done
Mr Khairul Very comfortable for long rides, good UK PRODUCT
Mr Tucker Really good product at a reasonable price. I'm 1m70, 63kg, medium fits nicely
Alan Floyd I brought these Lusso bib shorts a couple of years ago and found them to be comfortable and durable, so when it came time to buy some more I brought a second pair. Merlin's delivery is very quick too.
FL Wanker Elastic at the bottom of the legs isn't super snug and the bib straps fit about the same, but all around good and comfortable. Really like the pad! Form fits the curvature of my nether regions. Great deal for the price
Vancouver Dave Very nice for the price. Sizing fits perfectly. The gel pad is also very comfortable. I was worried that it wouldn't be as comfortable as the higher end models...but no problem at all.
Mr Deppen The padding will save my skinny 62 year old rear end ! Very comfortable - so comfortable that it help protect me from a bad bike fit ( saddle too far back )
Mark S As per other reviewers they soften up nicely after a wash. No problems with straps as others mention. Longer in the leg which was a deliberate choice in buying. Comfort very very good. Durability unsure in reality as not owned for more than a month, although quality in that area does look good. Buy again YES.
dooj Although only worn once so far very impressed with fit and comfort. I took advice from reviews and ordered Medium (5'10" 79kg 34-36w (normally large)). Can recommend! Merlin faultless as usual!
Mr Eccles Seem good so far. Very cushioned and good fit.
Mr Jackson These are my second pair of Lusso bib shorts. I bought the first on a recommendation and the second because I was so pleased with the first. They have quite a hard pad that may not suit everybody, but it helps spread the weight. Otherwise, I am 5' 10" with a 30" waist and bought a medium because I did not want them to be too tight. But they fit in all the right places and are definitely not too big
Hegedus Went with these bibs after all the stellar reviews and they did not disappoint; simply fantastic for the price. Knocked out a 2.5hr ride yesterday and these kept me nice and comfy. Measuring in at 184cm, 80kg and an 84cm waist, the large fit me well, though if I had to be picky, the shoulder straps were just a slight bit loose for my liking. All in all, a fantastic bit of kit.
Mr Milnichuk Good, a bit smaller than expected. But still fit. Ordered a small. Could have gone one up but think small should be fine.
coupe Quality fabric but slighty tight on the legs and not overjoyed with the sizing. Not worth the extra money in comparison to the Aero50 cycling bib shorts.
Mr Flynn Great fit, really high quality shorts....and they're made in the U.K. !
Mr Green These bib shorts are quality both in material and manufacture. The fit is good as per the sizing chart. I'm 5'10", 39" chest, 35" waist, (75kg) and the Medium fits a treat. Disappointed that the straps are not all white as per the diagram, mine has black piping at the edges. Otherwise well suited.
Mrs Austin Another great product from Lusso, made in England, good fit & qualify, purchased for husband, I have the equivalent ladies shorts
Lunt My favorite pair of bibs! Sizing chart was spot-on.
Mr Pachela Excellent service and must say, very pleased with my new bibs. The pad fits perfectly and the compressive nature of the fabric keeps the legs going for those longer rides. Spot on Lusso and spot on Merlin for your efficient delivery and service.
Mr Cashion Really pleased with these shorts. Very good quality and considerably comfier than the big-name-more-expensive shorts they replaced. I am 201cm tall and sometimes struggle with bib shorts (either they are long enough but are so baggy that it looks like I am going for the MC Hammer look (google it kids), or the bib straps dig into my shoulders). Great value so far, looking forward to many more miles in them.
Mr Uslu Perftect fit. I am 170 cm and 61 kg and small suited me very well (Maybe bibs could've been a little bit shorter). Pad is extremely good, I spent 4 hours on the saddle without a single irritation.
Mr Walton Great value for money , very comfortable, good pad and quality feel material. Size guide good, I am 80kg 33 waist and 43 chest, medium spot on. Very fast delivery again from Merlin.
Mr C Moorhouse These are great shorts. The fit is great and the sizing accurate. Just finished a 2day 329mile round trip C2C2C, the best shorts for the job. Lusso once again head and shoulders above the rest. Merlin, your legend lives on!!
Mr ingram Very comfortable on an all day ride with chamois cream. Large fitted me fine at 6ft 2ins and 170lbs
Mr Sayı I ordered large and I was very dissoppointed. By sizing I should have ordered large according to height (178 cm) but medium with respect to waist. Be aware of that, you should consider your waist size before your height. (84 cm waist that I have) I did not really like padding; it is too rigid and dont strecth in every direction. Good quality stiches but poor pad quality
Mr lucas Top quality product, perfect fit and super comfatable from a quality English manufactuer, aligned to Merlins great pricing and service what more is there to want. Totally fully recommend this product
Mr Khan I love the pad on these shorts... nice, thick and squishy. Material of the shorts looks and feels quality. I'm 5'11'' and around 88kg and the large is perfect for me. Only down side (and I'm being I'm being picky now) is that the material covering the pad that comes in contact with your skin started pilling after my very first ride. These are the shorts I use the most, I'm washing them everyday to re-use.
Mr sugden These shorts must be ordered at least one size bigger than expected. I am 5ft7ins medium build and ordered XL, which was still too small - I had to return the item, since I anticipated XXL would be too big. Apart from this sizing issue the quality is good, especially the insert.
Mr mckenna Excellent quality. Perfect fit using the size guide. No more pain in the ass on 3 to 4 hour rides
Mr Schaumburg Excellent shorts! They atre more comfortable than shorts I have that cost over twice as much. Merlin's is hard to beat!
Mr Shea Perfect fit, exactly as size chart. Ordering a second one for sure. Used it on few short and indoor training so far a comfortable bib.
Mr mobbs Usual great service from Merlin, delivered next day free of charge. First ever Lusso product and certainly wont be the last. The size guide is spot on 5' 7" , 32" waist and medium fits perfectly, perfect leg length, not too short like some shorts are. The silicon leg grippers work very well, the shorts stay in place and dont ride up at all. The pad is probably the best i have ever encountered, on a par with Assos/Sportful total comfort, if not better.For the price they are unbeatable, you can have two pairs of these and still have some change compared to some other brands. When the time comes to get some new bibshorts I won`t hesitate to buy these again.
Johnnie Good value, good fit - I found the size chart to be a good indicator. Quality seems fine. Just not quite as good as some of the expensive brands but then they are half the price. Overall very happy
Philipson Always buy Lusso shorts, great fit and quality. Made in the UK as well.
Mr Corby Good quality bib shorts with a very large and comfortable pad. I would say the sizing guide is accurate as I have found to be between sizes but that is my own fault for not choosing a larger size. Overall happy though
Mr bowyer Comfy, good fit, thoroughly recommend.
Mr Godsell These are an excellent pair of bib shorts. Very well made with flat seams, silicon leg grippers and using the latest version of Teosport's gel pad for real all day comfort. Sizing is true to the guide and at Merlin's prices they really are a steal. I now own four pairs, need I say more !
Mr Parker First time I have purchased a Lusso product, the Bib shorts were recommended to me by a cycling friend. These are without doubt the best pair of cycling shorts I have had so far.
Mr Baugh Pretty comfy so far - lots of panels so the fit is good around your butt and legs - padding on chamois is decent and no chafing but haven't had a long ride on them yet. Leg grippers are wide so overlap my knee pads when I'm on my MTB but don't get in the way too much - I wear these under my baggies! My pot belly is hidden by the front bib which is a bit high for toilet breaks but otherwise holds everything in. Overall quality looks good so hoping they'll last.
Mr Jones Excellent. Really good fitting shorts. Large comfortable pad, good on long rides. And great value too. Dispatched very promptly. Recommended
Mr Clayson Great fitting shorts straight out of the bag. Good compression in the legs and a good length (not too short like some others I have tried) A good thick pad - that is better after a wash! Overall very impressed
Club des Cingles Super price for the shorts, which were a great fit and comfortable 75mile ride in them on first outing. Delivery was excellent and within the stated time. would definitely buy again
Mr RODGER Bought these to replace the Lusso bib shorts I bought 6 years ago which have been superb. Judging by the two 70 mile rides wearing these so far, they will be just as good on long rides, and made in Britain too!
Dave M I've worn these shorts for a couple of 100km rides and found them really comfy. The sizing is spot on, I'm 5'6" and 10 stone and small fitted a treat. Bargin at this price
Mr Cleghorn Fast delivery, excellent item. Ridden in them twice now, about 60 miles so far. Found them comfortable and the pad does its job and I've suffered no problems with it all. Great service, great pricing, will happily order another another pair.
Mr T Much better than I anticipated having never seen/felt these bib shorts in person. The padding is remarkable. The fit is excellent and exactly as described in the sizing chart. I'm about to order another pair right now!
Mr Willson Prompt delivery from Merlin. I ordered medium , I am 5'10" 12st8 and 32"waist, 42"chest. Fitted perfectly. First ride out 54miles and very comfortable. Easy to slide on some running tights for early warmth.
Mr McElroy Very comfy pad, good fit for me, seem well made and great price
Mr Bell Excellent fit, very comfortable
Mr Mahy Bibs fit was very comfortable. Pad was just the right thickness.
Mr M from Adelaide These bib shorts fit well and Im 6ft 3in tall. I bought the medium as I wanted a tighter fit. I will say though that the legs are a little short. Overall top quality though.
JOT Only used on the rollers so far, but very comfortable
Mr Mathewson Very Comfortable, big gel pad & longer leg to just above the knee. A very good fit & exactly as per sizing guide.
Mr Laramy Good quality and very comfortable. Easily as good if not better than much more expensive Italian branded bibs. Use these regularly on rides of 50-100 miles. Very comfortable and no problems.
Mrs Dakin Excellent quality, good fit, and very comfortable.
Sam 5'-10", 180lbs, 33"~34" waist so I went for a medium since the reviews said its a bit generous on fabric. Fits perfect. Will need to test the pad out on a longer ride but so far I am very happy with the farbic, stitching, fit and price.
Mr Renshaw Great fit and good comfort and support from the chamois.
S Watt Great pair of shorts, comfortable and no chafing. Excellent for the price.
Mr deamon Perfect fit. Excellent value for money. Most comfortable bib shorts I have ever bought.
Mr Wave Very good quality. Pro-gel pad is a thick and comfortable. I am 6 foot @ 82kg. Ordered the size M which fits excellent. Good value for money.
Mr Leonard Excellent all round product and value for money. The padding is thick and took a few miles to get used to but that's the only very minor negative.
Mr Flynn Comfy as can be. Sizing as it should be. Great piece of kit :-)
Mossy Great fitting shorts, generous sizing felt really comfy on 1st ride of 45 miles
Mr McGrogan I have bib shorts from Altura and dhb. These Lusso bib shorts are, in my opinion, far superior in terms of comfort and quality. I have a 34 mile daily commute and now experience no discomfort whatsoever. The service from Merlin was first class. Ordered the shorts one day and received them the next.
Mr H I rode my first 3 centuries in Lusso Pro Gel shorts, comfortable, well-made and long lasting. What's not to like?
Mr Sheppard I looked at a number of mid-price bibshorts and was concerned about sizing and quality. I spotted these on offer and looked up the Lusso website to confirm their UK credentials. I am 6'1" with a 37" waist and 90kg (too big) and considered the xl but bought large. It is tight but actually after a few rides is now settling in well. The leg grippers are just right, the pad works well and overall I am very pleased. I have covered about 150 miles so far but nothing over 35 miles. On the performance so far, quality is very good, fit is excellent and I would have no qualms about trying them on longer rides. Merlin service is, as usual, excellent.
Mr Cooper Was very happy with the product, increase in comfort over my previous bib shorts. However, they lost an argument between a stone wall an HGV and my bike on their third outing and are deceased having been cut off. I could have possibly gone for a medium, 6feet/13.5 stone.
Mr Merriman Took them out on a 60 mile ride today, very hilly ride in the Cotswolds. These shorts are incredibly comfy and performed excellently. Well worth the investment
Chris W Excellent quality for the money. Very comfortable and well made - I was impressed enough to buy a second pair. Highly recommended. (Rapid delivery too - thanks Merlin)
Mr beaudoin Great shorts. Great fit. Fit as sized. Big pad that takes a bit of getting used to. Great price for the quality.
Paul R I am very pleased with the fit and quality of my Lusso Pro Gel 2 Bibshorts. Having looked at the sizing chart I was a bit bigger round the waist than the Large suggested but went with it anyway because al the other sizing info was correct for me. I had no need to worry because there is plenty of room around the waist and they fit very well all over. I am 5'11" tall, 41-42 chest, 13 stone 10 and have a 36" waist. The large was a good fit. I had read some reviews saying the sizing is a bit generous. Nice quality shorts with a good comfortable pad. I would recommend them.
Mr williams 2nd pair i've bought, a really comfortable short that's not too tight. I'm a 32 waist and size medium is spot on.
Mr Witherell Typical Lusso quality. Well made, good fit. Very comfy pad and the bib straps are a nice width.
Pete Hill Other reviews mention needing to go a size up. Followed the advice and the fit was spot on. Extremely comfy shorts ideal for a long ride.
Mr Benfield Very comfortable, pad good size and position .Size accurate to slightly generous I am 6' with 33" waist and large size ever so slightly loose. Look like they should last.
Bowsermtb OK, first things first I'm a mountain biker and I still wear bib shorts, under baggies obviously! Now that's out of the way these Lusso bib shorts are by far the comfiest I have ever owned, firm and compressive where you want and fitted in the other important areas where you don't want to be compressed! I have been out on 5 hour epics and these bib shorts are still comfortable to the point where you don't notice them. Padding is good but not bulky. All in all they're a bit ace, get yourself some now!
Mr mcconnell Bought as a gift for my son. He is delighted with them, good fit, good pad, good quality bib short. Would highly recommend.
Mr stubbs Very comfy bib short, worn them for a couple of 100 plus rides, no problems.
Mr Bremner Second pair. I like these shorts a lot.
Mr Stiles Great looking, great feeling shorts with a comfortable pad. Absolute bargain.
Barry Fairbrother Very comfortable and well-fitting. So impressed, I've bought a second pair.
Mr Naisbitt Have worn a few other brands of bibshorts and all perform pretty well but none are as comfortable as these. The Pro-Gel pad is excellent and they provide a good compressive fit with no chafing. I'm 5'-9'' and 80Kg (ish) and bought size medium. Great quality all round and will be ordering another pair very soon
Mr Evans Real world sizing for people with normal bodies. Returned some well reviewed dhbs which were tiny, flimsy and poor quality compared to these. Good pad, grippers, comfortable and cool without feeling thin. Shoulder straps are more substantial than others. White goes grey in the wash, but that's about the only negative. Great value - recommended.
Si Must be good. I bought another two pairs.
Mr Bremner Keep meaning to test these shorts properly but every time I go out in them I forget I'm wearing them. The fit is good (6'2", not skinny, XL) as is the pad. Best shorts I own.
Mr Sparrey Quite simply a superb pair of bib shorts. The pad is thick, well designed and comfortable. First ride out in them was 80k with no issues whatsoever. Nice fit on the shorts. Good leg grippers. Shoulder straps wide and comfortable. The service from Merlin was also second to none. I placed my order at 9am, by 10am I had a despatch note and the shorts arrive next day.
Mr Mannon Excellent Quality. Padding provides very good support for long rides.
Mr Bowker Super comfy bib short. I am 6 foot @ 90kg. Got the XL which fit well. Quality product at a good price. You get what you pay for and with this product I feel you get a little more quality for the price paid and made in the UK.
Dr bunyan Vey comfortable, so good, in fact, I purchased a second pair.
Wiltshire Druid Well made and comfortable shorts. The gel in the pad gives a high degree of comfort on longer rides. Whilst there may be better shorts, these are excellent value for money at the lower end of the price range.
Mr kirkpatrick Great shorts - just a shame the decal came off after the first ride.
Dan Second pair of these I've bought, my rear seems to get very tender after 50 or so miles and I find these are the best shorts for the money to relieve the pain. The pad lasts well too, my other pair are 2yrs old and still holding up very well.
Mr Cabell Been buying Lusso shorts since 1996, never been let down yet and these are by far the best. So combined with Merlins discount and great service always a winner.
Mr Drake Very impressed with these Bib shorts. My first pair. Comfortable, good padding, grippy legs. Recommended.
Mr Brookman Great comfortable shorts, good quality & made in the UK.
Mr Foulds After wearing normal non bib shorts I thought it time to take the plunge and after reading reviews bought these. Fantastic! I am 6'2" and 86 kg usually wearing an XL so ordered the XL, these are spot on fit, really well made and very comfortable. I recommend these shorts and a great price from Merlin.
Robbobabble Great pair of bib shorts at exceptional price. I have used Lusso shorts for years and these are the most comfortable model that I have had. Pad thickness is spot on for medium to long rides and the short material wicks moisture away perfectly. Would definitely recommend them especially at this price.
Mr Goodland These are my first pair of Lusso shorts and I'm really pleased with them. I've found them very comfortable and the large size fits my 34" waist frame fine. Gel pad is good too!! Recommended.
Mr Cullen 2nd pair of these shorts,They're even better than the first pair which were great until I came off avoiding a dog running across the road. Comfortable pad & quality lycra, nice fit too. I have the Altura progels and these are far superior. Made in the UK - I'm sure there are better shorts to be had but not at this price.
Mr Palmer Great fit and cut. Good use of materials. Mesh lined across the back to wick away mositure. Good length in the leg. Comfortable pad and excellent value for money. I have had the previous version of these shorts and they have lasted very well.
Mr dunster These are very good..why have i not brought them before?
Mr Dawson Very comfy, good value
Mr Weatherington Been happy with the bibs not the greatest looking but good value and comfy which more important
Mr Keyland Great pair of British made shorts pad very good gel does make a difference I highly recommend these shorts as all lusso clothing top marks usual brilliant service from merlin
Mr Trigg Lusso make great stuff. These bib-shorts are no exception.
Mr hatton Good to buy a british garment and be able to say it is the best at that price
Craig Very comfortable and absolutely top quality for the price (which is cheaper at Merlin Cycles than almost anywhere else). Padding is relatively unobtrusive but does the job. Sizing is a little on the generous size - I purchased a medium for a 31-32 inch waist and feel it would comfortably accommodate up to a 34 inch waist. Overall a great product and highly recommended for comfort.
Mr Atkinson Practical and comfortable bib shorts, great fit with realistic price tag, real world sizing unlike some other EU brands who consider 42 in chest to be XXL. Great service from Merlin as always.
Carters Serious padding in these bad boys! Comfy and good value
Mr horton used these shorts last week,first time on my road bike this year,backside fine ,legs need some work.
Mr Ogorzalek Great value for money shorts (it's my second pair of Lusso bib shorts!) and excellent on-line service from Merlin. Can recommend both!
Mr Woodbridge This product is highly recommended. I have only bought shorts from another manufacturer previously but would definitley purchase these again.
