There's no other Bib Shorts Chainsmith would recommend more highly when it comes to gaining a technological advantage an d increasing performance.
Cycling bib shorts are an indispensable garment for any type of bike ride. Q36.5 bibs are an extremely high quality, superbly designed product, essential for those cyclists who appreciate streamlined yet effective Equipment.
The Salopette Dottore Bibshort, offered in mens and womens option, is the definitive all-purpose, all-day, any-day, high performance cycling bib short of the future of competitive cycling.
Be blown away by the technical aspects of their bib construction that required both engineers and scientists ...
"UniqueFabric Ergogenic" is the name of the Italian-made fabric successfully developed by Q36.5. The simultaneous dense and stretchy fabric is woven for a fitted and extremely comfortable feel.
Adding to the smooth feel, the bibs have seam-free hems developed as an entire tube including bib braces. The fit is so seamless you may get the impression of riding naked. However at the same time the fabric is compressive and supportive.
A lumbar support panel provides stability through an extra tight-woven section, and contains silver thread to protect from electrostatic and magnetic interference. Constructed with a minimum of panels to aid aerodynamics, and free from any front-facing seams, the bibs also benefit from a jacquard pattern woven on the surface of the high-density fabric.
The "Y-pattern" found on the legs disrupts the surface of the air, reducing drag, and has been designed and tested specifically for limbs which are in constant movement. Q36.5 have intelligently aligned the panels of the shorts to make the most of the fabric's performance qualities; modulus force, elastic return and stretch, orientated in function of the direction of the pedalling action.
There's a lot of science behind this, but the end result is that the fabric is designed snug to benefit circulation, whilst providing less resistance when pushing down on the pedals.
There's more! The fabric is treated for water repellence before being woven, rather than simply being treated with a surface coating. This aids both water resistance and drying times. As with all Q36.5 bibs they're designed for maximum comfort in a cycling position - when trying them on they may feel constrictive when standing upright, but will feel perfectly fitted when in a riding position.
