Description

Ride with power.

With a multitude of bib shorts options available, choosing the right pair is a time-consuming process. We all need a pair of bib shorts that're comfortable and fit just right, but we also need durable and supportive fabrics that'll carry us through more than a single riding season. Hincapie knows how important the bib shorts equation is for cyclists, which is why its 2013 lineup takes the bulk of the guesswork out of it. Hincapie provides several lines of apparel that're designed with your type of riding in mind, whatever that happens to be. With that being said, riders looking for highly technical and durable fabrics, combined with a fit that's just right, need to take a hard look at the new Power GT Bib Shorts. They blend comfort, support, and safety into one complete package.

Starting with the bib shorts' lower construction, Hincapie used its AT2 Force Lycra Power fabric. AT2 Force Lycra was chosen for the leg panels, as it's a polyester and Lycra Power yarn blend that provides a supple, yet durable, feel. At a lightweight 200g (a measurement of fiber weight), and with a 40-gauge loom construction, the AT2 Force blend ensures that you benefit from the smooth feel and wicking properties of polyester, while maintaining the supportive fit and aerodynamic advantages of Lycra Power. Additionally, this fabric is extremely compact with a multi-directional stretch, giving it firm and compressive support that reduces muscle fatigue and helps promote positive blood flow to your muscles. This material also incorporates what's known as Coldblack technology. This is a finishing treatment that reduces the absorption of heat rays in darker fabrics, resulting in protection from the sun and improved heat management.

For the hard-wearing inner-thigh and saddle areas, ABR Resistor Lycra was used. This material is known for its durability, as its specially knitted nylon, polyester, and Lycra yarns combine in order to provide a durable nylon outer surface that resists abrasion. A polyester liner on the inside of these panels adds further protection from friction, and quickly wicks moisture away from the skin.

The bib shorts' cuffs features Hincapie's new HyperOptic Elastane material built directly into the sleek, no-elastic comfort leg bands. HyperOptic Elastane is a multi-layered fabric that combines stretch elastane with high visibility reflective safety material. The top elastane layer is constructed with a micro eyelet pattern, with the reflective material bonded underneath. In daylight, the dyed elastane colors are visible, while in low-light conditions these micro eyelets allow vehicle lights to reflect off of the reflective material, illuminating the fabric.

Finishing off the bib shorts, up top, Velocitek was chosen for the straps. This is a polyester and spandex stretch mesh that's tightly knitted as to provide excellent structure and moisture management. The mesh draws moisture away from the skin by using the body's expanding movements, which allows air to flow over the fabric's stretched surface where it rapidly dries.

The insert incorporated into bib shorts is the Power GT Chamois. This utilizes a combination of variable density foam padding with perforated, high-density foam inserts to provide comfort, freedom of movement, and breathability. Hincapie's soft, Elastic Interface Technology (E.I.T.) cube microfiber cover provides high elasticity and furthers moisture transport.

The Hincapie Power GT Bib Shorts are available in five sizes from Small to XX-Large and in the colors Black and Cold Black.
