OVERVIEW: This short-to-medium distance bib is the ideal choice for those who prefer a bib short but want easier access when nature calls. With the halter strap you no longer need to remove your jersey (and possibly jacket too) for those necessary, private moments. Just slip the halter over your head and you're all set. Constructed with MITI® Vector fabric in the legs and rise, these bibs will perform well in a variety of conditions, including hot, sunny days. The Italian-made, Elastic Interface® chamois in the Ascent Vector offers a larger footprint with more coverage to fit a wider range of riders, and includes added front coverage for increased comfort and reduced chaffing. Wide, single layer leg bands with soft Silicone printed grippers give a muscle soothing compression fit while also ensuring the legs won't ride up.
FABRIC & CONSTRUCTION: The combination of Pactimo’s proprietary Silhouette™ articulation and contoured seaming have been developed to guarantee a superlative fit in your riding position. The Italian Elastic Interface® chamois, offers larger coverage with added padding in the front for added comfort. Breathable, stretch uppers and halter has been designed to not only keep the bib up, but provide lasting comfort around the neck.

They may not exactly reflect the ACTIVE inseam length when the garment is being worn due to the combined effects of the 1) the riders's torso and femur length, 2) stretchiness of the material, and 3) the rider's leg musculature.
