Silhouette Engineering™ – Finally Bibs for Riding

June 04, 2013

Silhouette Engineering™ – Finally Bibs for Riding

You’ve probably done this a hundred times yourself…you try on a pair of bibs and you stand up to see how they feel.

Sure, you think, they feel great.

But how are they going to feel when you’re bent over your bars and on mile 40?

Will they still be as comfy as they were when you were standing around the coffee shop? Or will all that excess fabric that made the bibs so comfortable while standing turn into a bunched and chaffing nightmare?

That’s exactly what led us to develop Silhouette Engineering™ in our Ascent and Summit custom bibs. We think you should be just as comfortable on mile 100 as you are on the first mile…in bibs that feel comfy on the bike.

Try on one of our bibs with Silhouette™ Engineering and stand up and your first impression might be that they are the wrong size or the straps have been sewn too short. You’ll feel your shoulders being pulled down as if the bibs are trying to fold you over.

But put yourself in your natural riding position and you’ll see…they’re a perfect fit.

Pactimo’s proprietary Silhouette technology ensures your bibs will provide superlative comfort.

Innovative articulation, coupled with a unique strap and front panel design, allows you to enjoy longer rides with less material bunching, chaffing and discomfort.

They’re designed for riding — not standing.

“We are always working with professional athletes and teams in what we call a ’road lab’ setting,” says Karl Heidgen, our VP of Sales and an accomplished racer himself. “We solicit feedback and listen to performance suggestions, not only from champions like Laura Van Gilder and Brad Huff, but from all of our teams. Their input and ongoing wear-testing is what allows us to develop something like Silhouette Engineering. And, there’s no question, Silhouette™ engineered bibs have been designed for riding.”

Silhouette Engineering is available in 2013 custom Ascent and Summit bibs for men and women. These bibs also include the exceptional, Italian-made, CyTech Endurance Anatomic Carbonium Chamois. Designed with a unique curved anatomic shape, this pad offers the all-way stretch of the Elastic Interface® Technology plus special high density foam throughout for maximum comfort and performance.

A Smart Investment In Women and Water
A Smart Investment In Women and Water

March 22, 2017

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.

"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."
