Description

While wool was the original fabric of choice for cycling shorts, Lycra quickly took over. For years bib shorts touted various blends of the fabric with 2-way or 4-way stretch and various panel counts. But Lycra is not a do-all material, and for as many pluses as it has, it also has its drawbacks. But by getting feedback from professional riders, designers have created even more advanced iterations of Lycra that are not only supportive, but that also provide moisture-wicking and breathable qualities. The Capo Ceramica Bib Shorts incorporate the latest fabrics into a supportive design that keeps us more comfortable than ever before.

For the construction of the Ceramica Bib Shorts, Capo used its Ceramica Lycra, HG Lycra, and V-Mesh 360. The Ceramica fabric, as the name implies, is actually made with natural clay-based yarns. Testing showed Capo that by implementing this material into its fabrics, increased circulation and temperature regulation could be achieved over previous Lycra iterations. You'll notice the distinct honeycomb appearance of this fabric, which, in addition to providing exceptional moisture transfer from the skin to the material's outer layer, is also extremely durable. This characteristic comes as a much-welcomed side effect of compressive fabrics. Because the Ceramica is a tight knit, 36-gauge material used to securely hold your muscles in place, the fabric also yields a dense feel with a heightened level of durability. Capo targeted abrasion-prone inner thigh and saddle panels with this material specifically for this reason.

Side leg panels received Capo's high-gauge (HG) Lycra. This is also a highly compressive spandex that is very abrasion-resistant. The HG was treated with Coldblack technology that doesn't wash out and is able to dissipate heat better than other stretch fabrics. It accomplishes this by reflecting the sun's rays off the Lycra rather than absorbing it, which means you'll feel cooler and perform better as your body heats up. The bib shorts' uppers received Capo's super lightweight V-Mesh 360. This open mesh fabric is highly elastic with a supple texture that provides unmatched comfort, support, and freedom of upper body movement. And while the V-mesh 360 keeps your top half secure, the bib shorts' leg panels stay in place using 4cm silicone-backed grippers.

The chamois incorporated into the Ceramica Bib Shorts is Capo's Anatomic-DP Carbon Elastic Interface Technology (EIT) Insert. They use high-density open-cell foam bonded to a microfiber layer that has antimicrobial carbon fiber threads woven through it to aid in moisture evaporation. In addition to the slim, malleable shape, there are 6mm and 8mm-thick pads built into the pre-curved profile to optimize support on longer rides.

Capo's Ceramica Bib Shorts are available in five sizes from Small to XX-Large and in the colors Green and Black/red.
