New for 2013 with Pactimo's Silhouette™ Engineering. This articulated bib is made for comfort in the riding position and feels slightly different when standing. Using all the same technical performance materials and superb design as our Ascent Pro Bibs, these bib shorts incorporate the Ultra-soft Silicone Gripper at the leg openings as opposed to Compression Band. That means these bibs will fit a little shorter and may be a better choice for larger thighed or shorter cyclists.
Zaffiro Shield XC is a classical double opposite interlace warp knitted fabric from the Italian company Miti®, composed of multi-filament polyamide yarns and Lycra power® using looms of the latest SUPER 40 generation. The super dull polyester yarn used results in outstanding covering features, giving Shield great performance and comfort along with brilliant colors. The fabric's compactness, density and balanced multidirectional elasticity make it an ideal fabric for use in bib shorts and speedsuits.
The Italian made Cytech chamois is the ultimate top-end cycling short insert, developed after thousands of hours of wear testing to curve perfectly with human anatomy where it meets the saddle. Covered with a specifically constructed breathable microfibre, this chamois is naturally bacteriostatic and incorporates the all-way stretch of the unique Elastic Interface® Technology, designed to relieve pressure and provide maximum comfort and performance.

Really like the bib shorts!!! Just wish I could have worn them more then once before they were cut off me!!!
I had a great first ride but took a corner to hot, crashed and broke 8 ribs, a collar bone and bruised a lung. Hit the pavement and next thing I know they are cutting the shorts off of me!!!
Really bummed I could not wear them more then once!!

GREAT product as advertised...high quality fabric, bibs reach higher on chest for a more comfotable midsection fit.....chamois looks super soft and cushiony, though haven't tried them yet...day after tomorrow!

These are very comfortable and fit me well. They appear to be good quality and well-made too.

These bibs are as good and in some cases better than the name brands you'd pay $50 or more for.
The material is the right thickness with for me, the perfect amount of compression, The chammy is dense without being thick and all the seams are perfect. Top to bottom I love them.
Im just under 6'2" - 200 lbs big thighs and a 36" waist, the XL fits me really well.
Catch them on sale and get a couple.

This is my first bib and I was very happy with the quality and the price. The chamois is WAY BETTER than my Pearl Izumis. I highly recommend this bib!

I purchased the Ascent Cycling Bibs, and the quality of material, fit, and performance insure that I will be buying more items from this line. The bib shorts are equal or better than anything I currently own. Great shorts at a great price.

i've got a lot of bib shorts to compare these to including Assos, De Marchi, and Castelli. these shorts are cery comfortable and are true to size. they are solid with a nice chamois and will keep you comfortable on multi hour rides.

For the money, these bibs can't be beat! They easily compare with all the other bibs I have from other companies. they are comfy, have a great pad and fit really nice...but they aren't quite like the Pactimo Summit bibs. the Summit bib is the best on the market imho! But if price is a concern (since these are like $40 cheaper than the summit, get these. you won't be sorry.

I have only used these bibs a couple of times, but so far, they work great. Comfortable chamois, good materials and construction. They run small. I'm 5'9", 150 lbs. and needed a large. I got these during the Spring sale for about $65. They're a bargain at that price and would be a good value at full price. I'd like to have a choice of colors other than black.
