Compressive fit with all-day comfort and support
The Summit Raptor is the ideal choice for those who want a bib with a muscle soothing compressive fit and a 7+ hour race chamois. Raptor fabric is noted for it's comfortable, compressive feel, and features Flash coldblack® technology which pushes moisture away from the skin stay so you get all the performance-enhancing benefits of body temperature regulation. We've also designed the uppers so they will completely disappear during your ride by using a combination of breathable/lightweight mesh around the waist and raw-edge cut, double-knit straps. You'll get all-day comfort and support without excessive bulk.
Another feature to note in the Raptor is the Road Performance Force chamois from Elastic Interface®. It has a smaller footprint and significantly less heft than previous generation Raptor pads, while still offering long distance comfort over varied terrain.
The tightly-woven Raptor fabric provides a performance enhancing, compression fit that increases oxygen delivery to active muscles in motion. Flash coldblack® technology throughout pushes heat and perspiration away from your skin while also reflecting UV rays so you stay dry and cool, even on the hottest days.
The redesigned uppers are not only extremely supportive, but incredibly comfortable as well, so much so, that we say they will disappear during your ride. To accomplish this, we've used a combination of breathable/lightweight mesh around the waist and raw-edge cut, double-knit fabric for the shoulders and front straps.
With our easy Clip&Pit™ design you can answer the call of nature without having to remove your jersey to pull off bibs straps, which is typically a deterrent to wearing bibs. Just unclip the chest strap and the stretchy construction of the uppers and waist girdle allow you to easily pull the bib down as you bend into the natural position for relieving yourself.
The Road Performance Force Hybrid is Elastic Interface Technology's new long distance stitched chamois and it differs from the previous pad in two ways. Firstly the new “combination foam insert” provides differentiated density in key pressure zones (ischial and pelvic track) making this pad even better on long distance rides and at the same time it adheres softly to the athlete’s body.
