CX Magazine: Summit Raptor Pro Bibs Review

CX Magazine: Summit Raptor Pro Bibs Review

I am ecstatic that the bibs still look brand new after over two months of heavy-duty testing.

by Andrew Reimann / Cyclocross Magazine

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.

Together with Water.org, we have helped empower smart women like Aisyah through access to safe water. 

Aisyah is a wife, a mother, and a farmer. Most critical to all of her roles is time. Asiyah explained, “Time to work my rice fields means more money I can make for my family; our life is better.” As a smart business woman growing one of Indonesia’s most desired crops, Aisyah recognized lack of access to water at home as the main obstacle keeping her from having the time needed to farm.

Cold Weather Clothing Roundup Pt. 4: Pactimo Warms up Before, During and After the Ride

"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."
