Technology

Fabric Details

FlashFlash - Black on the outside, grey on the inside, this hydrophobic “water-fearing” technology pushes water and heat away from the skin

 

 

PowergridEschler PowerGrid is a Swiss-made fabric designed to actively absorb perspiration without drying the skin. Thanks to the hygienic, skin-friendly qualities, and freedom of movement, Eschler fabrics ensure outstanding wearer comfort. While engineered to keep the body warm in cold weather, the fabric also helps to regulate the climate against the skin, and thus ensure optimal thermal balance of the body in warm weather as well. Membrane technology makes the fabric wind and water resistant, making Eschler fabrics good protection against the elements while allowing air circulation and promoting optimal breathability.

 

SilhouetteSilhouette™ Engineering Bibs engineered with Pactimo’s proprietary Silhouette™ technology will provide a superlative fit in your riding position. Innovative articulation, coupled with a unique strap and front panel design means you can enjoy longer rides with less material bunching, chaffing and discomfort.



Chamois Details

Summit ChamoisCyTech's Endurance 2 X-Tract Women is the natural evolution of Elastic Interface® Technology’s popular Endurance Women pad. Endurance 2 X-Tract Women’s pad has a specially shaped central protective insert zone which has been refined in this new model with a smaller and more accurate protective area. This pad has been developed with a new generation of high density foams which not only provide excellent protection for long distance rides, but also a great fit designed just for women cyclists. Besides, E.I.T. X-Tract fabric structure has a double layer which helps collect and expel moisture.

The most comfortable shorts

Go for these shorts. Perfect fit and quality. Have been wearing them weekly for the past three years and still look great and fit nicely. This is a must for your cycling wardrobe. have never been disappointed with Pactimo products. This one is a must have.

comfortable for hours in the saddle

wide leg bands are comfortable and weren't pinching or rubbing after a few hours.

Almost perfect shorts for me

These shorts are really, really good. But not perfect for me.

I am 5'5, 125#, size 4 with more substantial quads. I'm more suited for field work that modeling :-) Also, I recently switched to a 168 saddle, and it's been a struggle to find a pad that is wide enough.
My favorite shorts before were the Capo Cipressa. They were long, really compressive and had a high waistband that never rolled down. I never understood why people needed to wear bibs to prevent that. However, the pad worked on my 143 saddle, and not the new one.
I ordered these shorts in a size small. They have good compression but definitely give me the sausage-y look on my legs (not as bad as the Castelli Body Paint shorts). Perhaps if you have thinner legs, they won't be like that for you.
The leg grippers are good, and I find that they stay in place when I ride. Also, the chamois stays in place and I didn't find it to bunch.
My only complaint is the waistband. It's just not quite tall/long enough, so when I am down in my drops I feel like they are going to roll down. Because of that, I'm going to order the bibs.

I hope that level of detail is helpful for someone buying these shorts. They are an excellent value and we have several Pactimo items - I love the jerseys, well made and super cute, and have been very happy with the quality.
