Pactimo are still a comparatively unknown name on this side of the Atlantic, but it’s time to sit up and take notice of the Colorado-based firm because they’re making kit that stands up against any of the traditional big names out there.
And that’s not just vacuous superlative, the Summit Raptor RFLX bib shorts are genuinely as good as any set of shorts I’ve worn in the last few years.
The chamois is from Cytech, whose list of pad clients includes some of the biggest names in the sport, and this one is their Endurance Anatomic 2 Carbon Flash. On the surface, that means about as much to me as it likely does to you, but in practice it’s wonderfully comfortable. It graduates from 60kg/m3 padding at the front to 120/m3 padding under the sit bones at the back. It’s difficult to describe just how comfortable that 120/m3 padding really is, but it’s absolutely no exaggeration to say that it’s the nearest to genuine all day comfort that I’ve ever used and to a certain extent can help to mask a less than ideal saddle – not a problem that most people have, as you’re better off changing it, but when testing bikes you can occasionally come across something that just doesn’t suit.

I have ridden bikes for over 20 years before I traveled to France, in all disciplines MTB, Road, cyclocross and track, but i have not ever ridden on the ‘french’ cobble stones..."

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.
Pactimo is a Colorado company known for quality, reliability and unsurpassed customer service. Since 2003, we’ve shipped over 1.5 million garments to Olympians, national champions, teams, clubs and individual cyclists around the globe. We hope you feel the inspiration of Colorado and our passion for cycling in everything we do.
