OVERVIEW:The Summit Strike is the perfect option for those who want a supportive and dense pad but prefer a smaller chamois footprint and a less compressive fit in an extremely lightweight, medium to long distance bib. While the material looks a great deal like the fabric used in our Summit Raptor Bib, it has a much finer yarn construction, making the hand-feel of the material exceptionally soft and silky.Similarly, since it is not knit as tightly as the Raptor fabric, it is much less compressive. The Elastic Interface® chamois in this bib has a smaller footprint with reduced density at the front and sides, all of which contributes to the bib's light weight and minimal feel when worn. Flash coldblack® technology ensures a regulated body temperature by pushing perspiration away from the skin while also reflecting UV rays. Breathable stretch uppers with a laser-cut bridge and single layer, stretch leg bands round out the meticulous comfort features. Reflective stitching in rear and side seams ensure added visibility in low-light conditions.
YOU GET TO CHOOSE! 4 CM OR 7 CM COMPRESSION LEG BANDS These bibs are available with Italian 4 cm "STANDARD" or 7 cm "LONG" MARC compression leg bands with ultra-soft Silicone grippers.
FABRICS & CONSTRUCTION: To ensure superior comfort and a refined stabilizing fit, we've utilized lower stretch mesh support panels and a super-flexible, laser-cut bridge across the upper back. The unique application of the soft, micro-thin bridge eliminates the need for edge-binding of any kind from the middle of the back all the way to the front seam of the knit straps. This allows the both the straps and stretch points to lay flat, reducing chafe points and accommodating a broad range of torso lengths. Flash coldblack® technology throughout the body fabric 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 Elastic Interface® chamois is engineered with a varying density perforated pad with ultra-dense foam located in the sit-bone area that tapers down at the front and sides.

The following OFF BODY inseam lengths were measured on a garment at rest. 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.

Pair these bibs with the Summit Aero jersey for a sleek, second-skin fit. The Summit Aero jersey also incorporates the same whisper-light, MARC Ether bands used for the Summit Raptor's leg bands as arm grippers. Add an easily packable Torrent Stretch Waterproof Vest for protection against wind or the unpredictable rain storm.
