Review: Pactimo Summit Raptor Bibs

Adele may have found her perfect pair of bib shorts…

by Adele Mitchell / Total Women’s Cycling

Every so often a garment lands on my desk that is quite breath taking in its fabulousness. Pactimo’s bib shorts don’t just fit into this category, they actually own it.

I have rarely worn shorts so comfortable and of such lovely quality: they are designed for hard, long rides and there is a whole list of trademarked technologies (see ‘they say’ below) to make sure they do the job. The size M fitted my size 10, tall (5’ 9”) frame without pulling or rubbing, the leg band is double turned (a proper hem!) with a silicon gripper that doesn’t dig in and the pad is a comfort dream.

The cut of the panels and use of stretch technical fabrics – which I will sum up as shiny for the leg panels, net for the back panel (with ‘well hello there’ keyhole detail), and luxe-feel satin-sheen ‘scales’ for the rest – are clearly employed for their performance benefits. The result, however, is like wearing the best shapewear ever. Step into them with a body like a bag of spuds and seconds later you’ve been re- sculpted into the body of Beyonce (well, almost). They’re so flattering that it’s tempting to wear them for a night out – now would make an interesting review.

"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?
