Not just known for baggies and freeride jerseys, Maloja shows it has just as much expertise in crafting slim-fitting kit for the road and XC set with its SimonM. 1/2 Men's Bib Shorts. Constructed with stretchy, breathable Lycra HC fabric that supports your muscles as you ride, the shorts are stitched with flatlock seaming and Maloja's most tailored fit, adapting them well to the road, singletrack, or anything in-between. They also come complete with a lightweight, breathable bib bearing Maloja's summer 2016 Rock & Roll logo.
Maloja bestows a simple, classic design upon the SimonM., giving the shorts the kind of understated aesthetic that many of us at Competitive have a not-so-secret preference for. Wide, silicone-backed leg cuffs, a supportive waistband, and an understated logo at the back hip are all that adorn the shorts on the outside, while inside, a Legend 2 chamois provides relief during long rides on chip-sealed roads and root-latticed trails. The plush chamois features an odor-resistant Polygiene treatment and was built with Maloja's S.A.T. (Shock Absorption Technology), which—according to Maloja—is able to absorb 90% of impact forces while it minimizes vibrations and stays breathable during long, hot rides.
