Description

Master your own riding destiny.

When we think of winter riding, naturally, nothing but the worst case scenarios fill our heads. However, if you're prepared, you can be the master of the freeze from atop your Fi'zi:k throne. Not coincidentally, the 'padrone' in the Capo Padrone Roubaix Bib Knickers literally translates to 'master.' So, pull on these bib knickers, grab Old Man Winter by the ear, and get out riding.

To place the Padrone Roubaix bib knickers near the top of its warming bottoms, Capo had to use two specific fabrics, Thermo Roubaix and WindTex Dream. In the design, WindTex Dream acts as a membrane to the body construction of Thermo Roubaix, and the reason is obvious. With a warp-knit construction, the material has a natural stretch. Within the knit, the threads follow a zig-zag pattern along the length of the knickers. This allows more surface area coverage while using less material, equating directly to an airy, lightweight construction. Thermo Roubaix's open weave also accelerates moisture transfer from the skin to the quick-drying surface of the knickers, however, the precise brushing process is what contributes most to its warmth. After the dying process, dedicated machines perform a brush to the inner-lining that provides a high, fleecy, and warming loft.

WindTex Dream also contributes to the warming sensation of the Padrone bib knickers, but its main task is to block the wind and rain. Featuring a triple-layer composition, the membrane is both wind- and water-resistant. Additionally, the membrane is extremely breathable, so you can check off all of the boxes on your wish list -- breathability, warmth, and dryness.

And while top-end fabrics are terrific, their use is null if the fit is out of order. That's why the Padrone bib knickers' fit is nothing short of impeccable. Using a multi-panel, contoured design, the knickers follow the shape of your body, while following its movements in and out of the saddle. The uppers have been cut purposefully wide for ample surface coverage, and the cut of the stomach has been heightened for the same reasoning. And knowing that this design could make entry and exit a tad problematic, Capo installed a zipper over the stomach.

For the chamois, Capo went with the illustrious Elastic Interface Technology (EIT) Anatomic-4G Carbon insert. This chamois uses a variable density throughout to support the regions that need the most support, without impacting the ones that don't. 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 design, the 4G creates an abrasion-free support that promotes an increased circulation by protecting nerves like the pudendal. Further along these lines, the chamois works to dissipate any heat. Even more impressive, the insert is road-specific. EIT engineers realize that saddles and saddle positions vary throughout different disciplines of cycling, and the insert's chamois density patterns are mindful of the specific pressures of road cycling.

The Capo Padrone Roubaix Bib Knickers are available in the color Black and in five sizes from Small to XX-Large. For maximum usage, Capo suggests wearing the Padrone knickers between the temperatures of 35 and 45 degrees Fahrenheit.

5 5

versatile

5/5 based on a better insert than mine, which are probably 2010 (The EIT insert seems to be deforming or separating. Its inconsistently comfy.) Assuming the insert was improved (and it looks that way), these are superb knickers. Windtex and fleece fabrics, and the overall cut & construction are all first-rate. What I like best is that there is just enough strategically placed Windtex to allow me to wear these down to 45, yet there is little enough so I can wear these in 60+ and not get hot or damp under the Windtex panels.

Hi DanL, if you don't mind can you tell me what size you bought based on your height, waist and weight?

I purchased these knickers from another website where I found a great price on them and they fit perfect. For reference, I am 5'8'' about 160lbs and the mediums fit like a glove. I think sizing up would be a mistake because the bibs would be too long and leg grippers would probably be too loose. Hope that helps anyone considering these bibs.

Hey SA_2823425

Didnt see yr question until cc.com put up their new site. I'm about yr build, but fatter. Am 6'3" but 40 years ago 175, now porky 210ish. I have had good luck just following sizing charts. 2xl for capo, castellli & xl for PI (exception being the defunct PI pro thermal tights, where I took a lrg). So far this applies to jerseys as well as tights, but I try and go for club-fit SS jerseys (e.g. giordana silverline SS is perfect) & most jackets are cut for bases underneath. FWIW all my 70's and 80's jerseys are all lrg--they tended to be tight in the shoulders & sometimes a bit short, but at least they didnt flap-in-the-wind around the waist--i.e. I can still get those jerseys on, but I look like a sausage!!. Note, also FWIW, that some e-vendors w/ narrower inventories can give better fit info e.g bicyclinghub.com (pick your poison). Dan
