Premium padding and support for endurance riders.
Pushing yourself to the brink of exhaustion not only puts a strain on tender sit bones, but it also leads to quickly deteriorating strength across over-worked muscle groups. Keeping you riding strong past the century mark, the Mavic Men's Ksyrium Pro Bib Shorts offer high levels of muscle support and dual-density cushioning for grueling endurance efforts. A testament to their truly comfortable nature, these bibs graced endurance rider Mike Cotty as he rode from Venice, Italy to Chamonix, France without stopping, some 1000 kilometers and 21,250 vertical meters later. He expected to change bib shorts two or three times, instead riding a single pair throughout the entire affair.
Ergonomically shaped, these contoured bib shorts drastically reduce chafing as you crank out mile after mile. Going one step further for long-distance comfort, smooth flatlock seams won't scratch or irritate sensitive areas. Throughout the body of these bib shorts, Skin Matrix ST fabric combines exceptional moisture management with solid muscle support. Ultimately, this fabric prevents you from soaking in perspiration and subsequently overheating through daunting uphill climbs and oppressively warm weather. Open mesh bibs promote even better ventilation while providing ample support during rapid pedaling. Additionally, lightweight Skin Power fabric enhances muscle support and recovery when you're on the brink of exhaustion.
Perhaps the most impressive feature, the Ergo 3D Pro Endurance chamois features dual-density Ortholite memory foam for cloud-nine cushioning on distance rides. This foam strategically supports the perineum and ischal areas, increasing shock absorption by 20% compared to standard inserts. The Ortholite foam returns to its original shape as soon as pressure is relieved, meaning it's able to adjust to different riding positions as you climb, descend and sprint out of the saddle. Finishing off these bib shorts, Ergo Grip Race leg openings remain firmly in place with their highly elastic fabric and internal silicone print.
