Men's ELITE Bib Shorts

For RED and BLUE shorts, please allow us 3-5 business days
to make and ship your order.
Designed to provide unparalleled support and comfort for your most demanding rides, and there is no better short for an epic day in the saddle. Our ELITE shorts are often the first choice of our ultra-distance cycling customers, and I'm sure you've noted all the bib shorts worn by riders in the Grand Tours. The Action fabric is of a robust weight for added durability and features higher compression (i.e. higher spandex content) to provide maximum muscle support. And our Sahara bib top eliminates the feel of a waistband to provide a secure, comfortable fit for all-day comfort.
Price: $165
• High-Compression Action fabric provides maximum muscle support and durability.
• Sahara micro-mesh bib top has wide 2-1/2" straps to eliminate pinching. High-stretch fabric is cut high in back to keep them securely in place, and low in front for cooling air flow.

• 1" Gripper Leg Elastic to keep the full-length legs securely in place.

Frequently Asked Questions

Made right here in Durango, Colorado USA

"I love the bibs shorts - outstanding comfort for me- I used them in a 400 km ride last Saturday (6 AM - midnight) - and plan to do the Cascade 1200 km ride in them."

"And I can tell you that, despite the great team gear that I have and use, when I do doubles I use Boure shorts and only Boure shorts. I know that I am faster because of the clothing."

"Love my Boure Elite bib shorts! Never any trouble. Never use chamois "products." Wore two pairs over 4 days of LEL comfortably. Boure has outstanding customer service. Great, small US company. Nice people. Don't think twice, just do it!"

"I rode your Elite and PRO shorts on the PAC Tour Northern Transcontinental this summer and, unlike many fellow riders, never had a saddle sore! "

"Since 2004 I've been riding long distance cycling events known as brevets, and since 2000 I've been riding double centuries on the California Triple Crown circuit. For many years I'd have trouble on the longer rides with saddle sores, chaffing and any of the misery caused by such. On the recommendation of a friend, I decided to spend more money than I thought was appropriate at the time for a pair of your Elite shorts. Improvement was immediate, and I quickly bought another pair, and then shortly after that yet one more pair. All this time I thought I was being cost conscious in getting shorts in the $50-$70 range. Wow, was I wrong. Your Elite shorts are very much worth every penny they cost, even if they only lasted as long as those less costly shorts from other companies. The bonus of course is that the Elites are so well made and designed that they already have outlasted the cheaper shorts."

"Over the past year or so I've ordered several pairs of shorts and a number of jerseys. I rank all of the items at the very top in terms of both comfort and workmanship. Now that I have several pair of your Elite bib shorts I actually threw out a two year old pair of Assos bibs as yours are much more comfortable."

Frequently Asked Questions
1. I saw a review of your products and they talked about your chamois being thinner than others. Can you explain to me the differences in your chamois inserts and how they work?

3. I recently finished a 460 mile bike ride in six days. I developed saddle sores that got infected and the last couple of days were miserable. I'm trying to find a solution and everybody has ideas. I'm currently trying a new saddle and have adjusted the way I sit in the saddle.

4. What if my new shorts don't fit, what is your return policy?

7. My shorts are showing wear and collecting crud in strange places. Can you help me?

8. I'm going to ride the "Ride the Rockies" this year in your shorts. Do I need to add any lubricant? Will that harm the shorts?
