Thermal leg protection.
Hincapie knows that as fall approaches, many of us replace our bib shorts with knickers to keep our lower halves shielded from unpredictable late-season weather conditions. That's exactly why it developed the new Ghisallo Bib Knickers. These bib knickers rely on Hincapie's advanced insulating fabrics to keep us logging those all-important base miles in comfort and style.
Hincapie made the Ghisallo bib knickers from a combination of the plush and stretchy BodE Thermal Loft and BodE Thermal Heat fabrics in order to provide both comfort and warmth. These materials deliver soft inner linings that utilize high-loft, fleece fibers to accelerate moisture evaporation. The linings assist in wicking moisture to the quick-drying surface of the material. And not only do these fabrics work to keep you dry, but their breathable designs also maintain a consistent, insulated temperature for warmth. In fact, Thermal Loft employs one of the heaviest knit structures in the Hincapie lineup in order to ensure heat retention. However, this is complemented by the outer-layer's Lycra and nylon-blended makeup. Accordingly, the bib knickers effectively wick away moisture to keep you riding dry and at a consistent internal temperature.
The Ghisallo bib knickers have a malleable, four-way stretch construction that conforms to the contours of your body. And to minimize any shifting during movement, the Ghisallo has an exclusive Hincapie Gel-Gripper along the hem of the legs. The Gel-Gripper itself is flexible. However, the anti-slip elastic creates a secure attachment for a perfect fit. The knickers also feature reflective accents throughout the legs for a heightened sense of visibility to motorists in low-light conditions.
And while warmth and fit are important, nothing compares to a quality chamois. Luckily, Hincapie understands this logic and incorporated its Power Chamois. This pad uses a four-way stretch, variable thickness construction to compliment Power's most important design feature — the ability to move with your body in motion. By doing this, and by adding an antimicrobial treatment, Hincapie eliminated the chafing, abrasion, and bacteria that help lead to the formidable saddle sore. The design also reduces pressure on the perineum region while minimizing the buildup of moisture from friction.
