Mermaid Parade: Summit Raptor Review

Mermaid Parade: Summit Raptor Review

The Raptor fabric has a wonderful compressive but not restricting feel. 

by Laura Callahan & Tyler Rae Dube / Pretty Damned Fast Magazine

When Pactimo first sent me the Summit RT Raptor bibs, I was immediately drawn to the scale like pattern of the fabric. I kept referring to them as my “Game of Thrones bibs” until Anna Maria brilliantly suggested that maybe they were less dragon and more mermaid. Paired with the Summit RT Jersey in “Ocean” and Tenspeed Hero’s Resort Striped socks, we decided to shoot the Summit Collection at Coney Island’s annual Mermaid Parade.

Mermaid Parade is the story of two mermaids who get legs for the day and explore the wonders of Coney Island by bike before returning to the sea.

One of the main themes of the Summit Collection is visibility. The rider who picks up the Summit Collection specifically rides and rides often. This means they have early low-light departures and late dusk returns. Both the Summit RT Speed jersey and Summit Raptor RT bibs feature silicone-impregnated, wide reflective arm band and rear waist gripper. Consisting of Pixel® fabric membrane, the reflective fabrics have refractive elements added directly into the cloth. In daylight the fabric appears like any other on the garment—but when illuminated by exposure from direct light, such as a car’s headlights, RT “explodes” with brightness.

"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?
