Pactimo x Major Taylor
The Summit has been designed for those who want the very best in fabrics and design in a jersey with three extra-wide rear pockets with expanding, bottom bellows and a zippered valuables pocket. This jersey is an excellent choice for racing conditions and all-day, endurance adventures alike. We developed it with the discerning rider in mind who wants the ultimate in breathability, performance and comfort.
YOU GET TO CHOOSE — AERO OR TRADITIONAL FIT
This jersey is available in either an aerodynamic (Aero) form fit or a roomier and more Traditional fit. See details below.
FABRICS & CONSTRUCTION
Recycled Fabric: As part of an ongoing effort to reduce our carbon footprint, the development team searched high and low for the finest, high-performance fabric that was manufactured from recycled materials. The Italian-made, Borgini fabric used in Summit jerseys met the needs in every way. It is lightweight, wicking, durable, stretchy and fully recycled polyester with spandex.
Raw Edge: A raw edge cut sleeve is a thing of beauty. It's a seamless marriage between your arm and the sleeve, enhancing both comfort and aerodynamic performance. And, it looks elegant.
Hexagonal Mesh: We used a hexagonal mesh in strategic locations not only because it has a stunning appearance, but because it offers exceptional breathability, facilitates stretch and reduces the weight of the garment.
Semi-Auto Locking Zipper: Rounding out the little details is the use of a YKK semi-auto lock zipper, which features a textured rubber pull for better gripping. The biggest advantage of a locking zipper is the ability for the wearer to singlehandedly unzip and open their jersey for venting. Merely flip the pull up to unlock the zipper. Then, with one hand, the jersey can be pulled open. Flip the pull back down to lock the zipper pull in place.
We partnered with artists Andrew Harris and Seitu Barnes to release limited edition Black History kits, celebrating Past, Present and Future.
Pactimo will donate $25 from the sale of each Summit Jersey to two organizations, Major Taylor Iron Riders Development Team & the Thurgood Marshall College Fund.
Black History Month Kits
"Unification and togetherness was what we hoped to convey and I guess, achieve more of. And
as always, we're interested in making a statement and designing something that people are proud to wear and feel empowered while wearing it - but also something that's just fire. These kits are fire.”
