Second time around for this short

Love the fit, comfort and support. Padding is perfect for my riding style of 100 - 150 miles per week on roads and gravel.

Go To bib shorts

While I don't have the budget to have tried lots of different brands, these are the bib shorts I go to first for long rides. They are as comfortable as anything I have tried so far for long days in the saddle, and it looks like they are going to stay in better repair after several trips through the washing machine as well. I like that the shoulder straps are a little wider than a couple other brands I have tried. They don't dig in like some. The gripper surface at the bottom of the leg holds them in place on my thigh without irritating my skin. They seem to be a good value for the money, especially if you can catch them on sale.

excellent bibs and customer service

I’m very happy with these bibs. The chamois is firm enough to give good support for many hours without being excessively plush. For context, I’m 6’1”, 170 lbs, with a 35” waist, 21” thighs, and 4” sit bone width. I initially ordered a Large based on the fit chart, but then exchanged for a Medium because the leg band of the L pair didn’t touch all the way around and the bibs just felt too loose in general. The exchange process was quick and trouble-free. Based on a closer reading of the fit chart I probably should have ordered an M in the first place but, well, online shopping. The fit of the M pair is just a little tight, which is what I prefer. The fit does feel more natural in riding position than standing up, which they note in the fit guide. The only flaw in the fit for me is that the chamois is just a touch wider than ideal for my narrow sit bones, but it’s not objectionably so and getting that perfect for everyone would probably require that Primal manufacture multiple chamois widths, driving up prices. At most I would have taken a half-star off for that but I can’t so I’m leaving it at 5: totally happy. I can’t review longevity yet because I haven’t ridden in these long enough, but I’ll try to remember to come back and do that in the future.

Dope, Dope bibs, prohibitively expensive

I love these bibs, undoubtedly the best I've owned. Used them on a 500 mile race and my bum felt fantastic. That said, I probably won't but another pair for like 4 years because they are really expensive.

These bib shorts are comfortable, fit well and stay put. The chamois provides excellent cushioning without too much bulk. Overall, just what you want in every day bibs!

Years of shorts have led me to the Obsidian 2.0. Best shorts of them all. Fit is very snug. The materials seem to help flush your legs. I actually look forward to putting these shorts on. Buy them!

High quality and great fit

I have three pairs of these shorts and like them very much. They priced at a similar level to high quality alternatives (I own those, too), and have a similar quality level. So, you getting what you pay for. The big difference that I see is that the Helix bibs are cut for a taller rider, vs say, Rapha or Cafe du Cycliste. I am six feet tall and can barely get the competition's bibs stretched over my shoulders; they are made for someone who is maybe five foot five. The Helixes fit really well, the bib straps are long enough that someone who is a bit taller/longer torso can wear them comfortably. Great bibs!

Seems pretty good to me

I've only tried a couple other brands of bibs, but this one seems to compare favorably with all that I have tried. I will be interested to see how these hold up over time. I have used them on a couple long rides and they are as comfortable as any I have worn. The shoulder straps are comfortable and don't chafe me. The chamois has been very comfortable on longer rides. Nothing to complain about. I would recommend to a friend.

Awesome bib short with amazing chamois

These shorts fit as advertised by Primal Wear. The chamois is thicker than most but not uncomfortably so. These are definitely my go-to shorts for rides longer than three hours.

How to Measure

1. Measure your waist– this measurement should be taken above the hip bones, should run pretty close to the top of your belly button.

2. From this measurement, you should be able to find your correct size.

If you are in-between sizes, weight and height can factor in, but should not be necessary.
