Description

Quality is a subjective term. More than just a singular trait, we believe that true quality is measured with a perspective of totality. So, for bib shorts, what sets apart the innovators from the fakers? Well, Babici has a checklist for its bib shorts -- design, style, comfort, function, and price. Not surprisingly, we agree, and even better, all of these characteristics are well represented within the Corsa Bib Shorts.

The style of the Corsa is alarmingly understated. An exercise in subtlety, the Corsa juxtaposes a flowing band of white over your choice in color. Its aesthetics remain fashionable yet ambiguous to definition. For the design, Babici used a seamless construction as to eliminate any possibility of abrasion. The cut is defined as aero-race, yet for the typical cycling build, you'll find it conforming and comfortable. In fact, Corsa's shape follows the contours of the body gracefully and is cut to follow movement. These characteristics are made possible by a combination of craftsmanship and Babici's unwavering devotion to the world's finest fabrics.

Australia is no stranger to the boyhood fanaticism of Italian cycling. And while Italian fabrics and style were in demand at Babici's inception, Babici noticed an undercurrent of desire to retain the Australian identity. So, designs in tow, Babici went to the premiere Italian fabric manufacturer, MITI -- the source of the ever popular and plagiarized SuperRoubaix, ThermoDream, and Ibisco fabrics. As their relationship blossomed, MITI's Aenergia material presented itself as the obvious fabric choice for the Corsa bib shorts. With a warp-knit construction, the material is given a natural stretch. Within the knit, the threads follow a zigzag pattern along the length of the bib shorts. This allows more surface area coverage while using less material, equating directly to an airy, lightweight construction. Aenergia's open weave also accelerates moisture transfer from the skin to the quick-drying surface of the bib shorts. And while this fabric costs Babici an arm and a leg to produce, the comfort is worth it.

Now, you might be wondering about the Corsa bib shorts' functionality. We believe that the true test of a bib short is how it holds up over a century, and your comfort level during that ride is mainly derivative of quality of the chamois. Babici agrees, and accordingly, it spared no expense with a top-shelf CyTech chamois for the Corsa. This chamois uses a variable density throughout the pad to support the regions that need the most support, without impacting the ones that don't. And for CyTech, the support focus is primarily placed at the perineal, ischial, and gluteal areas -- the points most prone to distress from saddle pressure and compression. With its anatomic, Elastic Interface design, the CyTech chamois creates an abrasion-free support that promotes an increased circulation by protecting nerves like the pudendal. Even more impressive, the CyTech chamois is road-specific. CyTech engineers realize that saddles and saddle positions vary throughout different disciplines of cycling, and the Corsa's chamois density patterns are mindful of the specific pressures of road cycling.

The Babici Corsa Bib Shorts are available in five sizes from Small to X-Large and in the colors Black/veloce, Blue/azzuri, and Grey/metallo.

Very good bibshorts - great price

  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I'm thin and tall, 143 and 5'91. This product have a nice construction, great details, nice chamois. The problem is that this have got a litle big in my thin legs and good in the bibs, so, if i had ordered a number smaller it would be short in the bibs. But I'm very happy with this produtct, and feel it very confortable with a good loocking.

Sorry about the bad english, I'm from United States
