OVERVIEW: This ultra-endurance bib has been designed with 4 stretch-mesh pockets; two on the lower back, two on the legs, for hauling additional cargo and necessities over extreme distances. They are the ideal choice for those who want guaranteed comfort on extreme adventures, all-day rides and self-supported road/gravel races. The 2nd Generation Elastic Interface® Endurance Anatomic Super Air chamois was uniquely designed to Pactimo's strict comfort specifications for a long distance pad. The extremely durable Cerami–K fabric, noted by its unique dotted pattern, provides uninhibited movement, long distance comfort and heat dissipation during maximum exertion. Lightweight mesh and raw-edge uppers provide excellent support while also ensuring lasting comfort and an accommodating fit for a variety of torso lengths. Single layer, mesh knit leg bands guarantee a slip-free fit while also allowing for moisture movement away from the skin.
"Pactimo says the Summit Stratos Range Bibs are designed for 'guaranteed comfort on extreme adventures, all-day rides and self-supported road/gravel races'. That is a bold statement, but these shorts have really impressed me by actually delivering on that promise. They are hands down the most comfortable bib shorts I've tried." Read the review »
Pockets: We developed this bib for extreme gravel racing in Colorado where rider support is not available and the time in the saddle may easily surpass 12 hours. With that in mind, we've included 4 stretch mesh pockets; two on the lower back, two on the thighs. They can be packed for easy access to food or necessities during your extreme adventure, when not in use they lay completely flat and are hardly noticeable. We've also included a loop on the back to hold a mini pump in place when carried in one of the lower back pockets.
Cerami–K Fabric: Constructed with Swiss-milled, ceramic-print fabric that is super lightweight and extremely durable while also offering and even-compression fit for all-day support and heat dissipation.
Ultra-Endurance Chamois: Guaranteed to provide unparalleled comfort for 12+ hour activities, this Stratos Bib includes the 2nd generation Endurance Anatomic Super Air chamois. Our development team worked specifically with the experts at Elastic Interface® to custom-design this updated version of our award-winning 12-hour chamois to make it even better. The new skin-contact fabric is Recycled Eco X-Fifty, which has a textured design to aid in moisture transfer and unparalleled all-day comfort over any terrain.
