Review: Pactimo Summit Raptor Bibs

Adele may have found her perfect pair of bib shorts…

by Adele Mitchell / Total Women’s Cycling

Every so often a garment lands on my desk that is quite breath taking in its fabulousness. Pactimo’s bib shorts don’t just fit into this category, they actually own it.

I have rarely worn shorts so comfortable and of such lovely quality: they are designed for hard, long rides and there is a whole list of trademarked technologies (see ‘they say’ below) to make sure they do the job. The size M fitted my size 10, tall (5’ 9”) frame without pulling or rubbing, the leg band is double turned (a proper hem!) with a silicon gripper that doesn’t dig in and the pad is a comfort dream.

The cut of the panels and use of stretch technical fabrics – which I will sum up as shiny for the leg panels, net for the back panel (with ‘well hello there’ keyhole detail), and luxe-feel satin-sheen ‘scales’ for the rest – are clearly employed for their performance benefits. The result, however, is like wearing the best shapewear ever. Step into them with a body like a bag of spuds and seconds later you’ve been re- sculpted into the body of Beyonce (well, almost). They’re so flattering that it’s tempting to wear them for a night out – now would make an interesting review.

"We got up early in the morning for our Journey to Goodland Kansas where I was about to embark on a 9-day bike ride; I had never done anything like this before and was excited for this new challenge. Despite having started packing the week before, I was up till midnight checking on gear and feeling like I was forgetting something. We left Missouri at 7am and seemed to travel forever. About 8 hours later, we rolled into Goodland and got ourselves checked in and a camping spot secured for the night."
