Colorado-based Pactimo’s already established a pedigree over the years, supporting big names in the sport like Katie Compton and more recently, Danny Summerhill.
Pactimo sent a pair of Pactimo Summit Raptor Pro RFLX bib shorts for us to try. While the company has an extended line of skinsuit models for cyclocross, including a customizable program for local teams and clubs, some riders prefer the benefits offered by a multi-piece kit to skinsuits. After all, bibs are usually not as expensive to replace if they are too worn, and longer rides such as road or gravel races make pocket-less skinsuits a prohibitive piece of attire.
After wearing the bibs in all different kinds of conditions, I sat down with Josh Cook, Pactimo’s Retail Brand Manager, and got into some of the finer details of the Summit Raptor Pro bibs.
Even looking at the pictures, the reader might notice that there is a lot of material present in the Pactimo Summit Raptor Pro RFLX bib shorts compared to the traditional mesh-straps and low-cut bibs. Even upon closer examination of the bibs, nothing about the material looks traditional, with scales lining the entire external fabric instead of a uniform cloth.

I tested out the new Women’s Apex kit recently, and was pretty impressed. The Apex Jersey is super lightweight and breathable. The back and sleeves are made of a mesh-like fabric that offers great air flow on hot days and wicks moisture really well, even while wearing a hydration pack.
