The Vermarc bib shorts offer impressive quality for the price
Posted on February 22 2017
If you’re not familiar with the Vermarc names, it’s a Belgian brand that has been making cycling clothing since 1977, supplying clothing to Etixx-Quickstep for the past few years. And it’s clear that all that experience has been brought to the table when designing the Vermarc Veloce bib shorts.
The first thing that struck me about these shorts is the quality of the construction. At £81.99 the Vermarc Veloce bib shorts can reasonably be considered mid-range, and yet have many of the features that you’d usually associate with high-end shorts. That means that the hems of the shorts are lazer cut, flat-lock stitching is used throughout, and they come with a compressive fit that should give some performance gains depending on what science you look at.
They also look great. When it comes to shorts you should be able to buy any colour as long as it’s black, but Vermarc has still be able to add some subtle colouring and thankfully hasn’t gone over the top with its deployment of its own name and logos.
