Bike Rumor: Pactimo Nails the Apex with their First Full Mountain Bike Kit

Offering a full mountain bike clothing system for the first time, Pactimo has come out swinging…

by Zach Overholt / Bike Rumor

“In spite of their success as a custom and off the rack clothing manufacturer for road cycling, Pactimo is still relatively unknown. Especially when it comes to mountain bike clothing. That will probably change once their latest project hits the shelves. Offering a full mountain bike clothing system for the first time, Pactimo has come out swinging with what looks like a great blend of fabrics, fit, and features for your next mountain bike session….

These days, it seems no mountain bike kit is complete without a bib liner that includes a few pockets. For shorter rides, the addition of pockets means you can leave the hydration pack at home, and having the pockets on the liner instead of the short or the jersey means the contents won’t bounce around as much as you’re blazing trail. Pactimo decided on two rear pockets since they felt that three pockets always resulted in whatever was in the middle pocket resting uncomfortably against your spine. Sized to fit a full water bottle, the left pocket also includes a pump strap to keep it from migrating towards your ribs.”

"Along with their custom and off the rack clothing for the warmer months, Pactimo has been helping cyclists warm as well. Pactimo’s Alpine Thermal RT jersey remains one of my favorite cold weather pieces, but this time Pactimo sent along a couple jackets that sit on either side of the Alpine in terms of warmth and weather protection."

As a rider, I’m picky [my friends say tweaky] about my kit. If we dress sharp, we feel good…If we feel good, we go well. The proper cycling shoe color is white, because it’s Euro, and because the European continent is the Mothership of all cycling. Life is way too short to bother with bargain kit. Did that sound tweaky?
