CAPO MEN'S SHORTS/BIBS - ROAD
Since the Padrone Short Sleeve Jersey represents Capo's best efforts at fit and comfort to date, the only way to have matching bib shorts was to push their design to new levels to match it. The Padrone Bib Shorts are that next level.
The fit has been refined from their super corsa paneling design. There are ten panels in the shorts rather than eight, with flat lock seams holding them all together. The seams running down the front of the legs have an even greater curve than you're used to seeing. The reason for this is that the curved panels here are designed to reduce the potential for gapping and bunching of fabric to nearly zero. They've also split the side panels in two to create a better fit than ever before.
As Capo found success in using several kinds of stretch fabric in their Padrone Jersey, they've continued this trend with the shorts. The center and inside panels are made of HG Lycra. This is a highly compressive spandex that is very abrasion resistant. The HG has also been treated with Coldblack as part of the dyeing process. This is a treatment that won't wash out. The magic of Coldblack is that it is able to dissipate heat better than other stretch fabrics 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 side panels are Carbon Lycra, a high-compression Power Lycra featuring carbon threads for anti-bacterial properties. The leg bands, which replace grippers, are made of Capo's Dual-Ply Power V material, with Power Lycra on the outside and V-Mesh on the inside. The Power part adds compression and the mesh gives you wicking potential.
The bibs have also gone for some improvements. They've bonded their traditional V-Mesh bib fabric with 190g Lycra for better-controlled vertical stretch. While it might be hard to see in the images, there are actually cutouts on the inside to minimize the feeling that you're wearing bibs.
The Capo Padrone Bib Shorts come in Black and are available in sizes running from Small to XX-Large.
