Early-fall special. Bridge the gap
Every year, we hit that odd fork in the road between full bib tights and bib shorts. And while knee warmers are great, they only cover our knees. Typically, the only other solution is to wear tights over our bib shorts, but that just brings us right back to square one. Thankfully, Capo figured out the missing link with its Pursuit Roubaix Bib Shorts. By combining Capo's renowned fit with a warming, comfortable fabric, the Pursuit Roubaix bib shorts effectively bridge the gap between seasons.
For the construction of the Pursuit Roubaix bib shorts, Capo used Thermo Roubaix Tech fabric. This material features a high interior loft that assists in the moisture management duties of the shorts, while its hollow-core microfiber composition breathes heavily to maintain a consistent level of thermo-regulation. Additionally, Capo incorporated what it calls a top knit construction to reduce fabric and seam abrasion.
And while materials are important, Capo knows that fit is paramount to the quality of bib shorts. So, it used a multi-panel approach for the design of the Pursuit. The panels are shaped on a curve in order to follow the natural contours of your body. However, the stitching and seams remain minimal throughout the bib shorts. This creates a heightened level flexibility and adaptability to your movements in the saddle. Ultimately, the fit follows you, not the other way around.
For the chamois, Capo went with the illustrious Elastic Interface Technology (EIT) Anatomic-L HD Carbon insert. This chamois uses a variable density throughout to support the regions that need the most support, without impacting the ones that don't. The support focus is primarily placed at the perineal, ischial, and gluteal areas -- the points most prone to distress from saddle pressure and compression. With its anatomic design, the L HD creates an abrasion-free support that promotes an increased circulation by protecting nerves like the pudendal. Further along these lines, the chamois works to dissipate any heat. Even more impressive, the insert is road-specific. EIT engineers realize that saddles and saddle positions vary throughout different disciplines of cycling, and the insert's chamois density patterns are mindful of the specific pressures of road cycling.
The Capo Pursuit Roubaix Bib Shorts are available in the color Black and in five sizes from Small to XX-Large. Please note that Capo suggests that the bib shorts perform best at temperatures between 45 and 55 degrees Fahrenheit. Every pair of bib shorts are made in Italy.

free shipping 2 day delivery was awesome. Wore these the 1st time today. fit great right from the start. felt snug at 1st but once on the bike it was business as usual. Did some climbing in the saddle, hammered some and these bibs were perfect. And this was a hot day (85 and humid) and these shorts were designed for the 40 degree range and I had no problem staying cool..
