This lightweight, traditionally Lycra-feeling bib short will perform well over medium distances in a variety of conditions. Flash Technology, a fabric characteristic that helps regulate body temperature, pushes perspiration away from the skin so you stay cool even when riding on 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. 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, featuring Elastic Interface® Technology, offers larger coverage with added padding in the front for added comfort. Breathable, mesh straps include stretch binding for improved comfort while a knit-bridge keeps straps in place over shoulders.
Meet THE DESIGNER
I visited Marble and the Crystal Mill last summer while on a mountain bike trip to Carbondale and Aspen. I rode out to the Crystal Mill and walked around the old processing site in the middle of the town where huge Marble blocks still sit as an homage to the history of the town. Marble is known for the “Yule” Marble as it’s known due to the quarry’s proximity to Yule Creek. The marble was discovered in the 1870’s and the town incorporated in 1899 when the quarry began exporting large amounts of marble.
