Chpt./// Shorts 1.11 - Climbing Ivy

£190.00

HIGH DENSITY LYCRA. REINFORCED BRACES. TEXTURED GRIPPERS. ONE PIECE ENGINEERING. AN EVERYDAY, ALL-WEATHER BIBSHORT.

"When racing I used the Body Paint short, I still own the first prototypes that I tested because I loved them so much. 
Body Paint because they are one-piece of engineered seamless lycra. These differ from the race version by being more luxurious, no race minimalism has been applied here.  The lycra has increased multi-directional properties and a density that makes it heavier and smoother to touch. We have made the bibs feels more like braces than elastic bands.
 
The chamois is the same tech as I used to race, only with a design in tribute to a good friend, Crispin Latymer, whom I introduced to cycling yet forgot to educate on the finer points of dressing.  On his first ride he wore the shorts inside out, thinking it made total sense for the chamois to be in direct contact with the saddle.  These shorts are designed for every day, all-weather use, just please, keep the chamois on the inside."
The shorts are available in two colourways - Climbing Ivy and Outer Space Blue.
