In the wind tunnel testing, the aerodynamics, position of the athlete on the bike and utilisation of proper cycling attire, have all been identified as factors that significantly help in performance. The bib short is designed to follow the contours of the athlete in a riding position, not the athlete in a standing position, like many other bib shorts.
These Bib shorts have an innovative cut 6 panels “MOULDING” structure, highly breathable gripper elastic and two way elastic bib braces with mesh fabric inserts in the front and rear for more comfort during the ride.
Special High Compression fabric with mesh structure is utilised in the core.
Abrasion testing is carried out on test fabrics, which are rubbed against each other using the Martindale Method to test for and ensure durability.
The MALE SPECIFIC pad is made in-house and is not sourced from external manufacturers like most other brands. The pad has two sewn central inserts made with high density foams. The fabric has a double-layer structure that helps to absorb and expel moisture. The perforated base layer provides greater breathability and dries quickly.
Top layer: 82% Polyamide and 18% Elastane
Foam: 10mm +
Bottom layer: 100% Polyester 90 g/m²
PERFECT FIT - Aerodynamically cut, the Bib Shorts have a fast and compressive fit to reduce muscle fatigue and eliminate drag.
Just received my bibs in the US...totally love them! I highly recommend these comfortable high performance bibs. I live in the desert southwest and the Element22 bib shorts are super for the harsh summers in Arizona! Big thanks to Steve for his outstanding customer service. I will be a return customer!
Fantastic bib shorts
Great to find a local supplier with a fantastic product that is not made in China. Very soft material, obvious quality and a chamois to match. Backed up by great service, I cannot recommend Element 22 highly enough. Thank you Steve Ramsay
