You demand the best – of yourself, your bike and your apparel. The Summit Pro Bib short has been described by many experienced riders as simply the best bib short they have ever worn. Swiss engineered Eschler Powergrid fabric provides compression to your muscles, moves perspiration away from your skin, and protects you with SPF 50+ UV protection. The Summit chamois features best-in-class Italian Elastic Interface™ technology specially designed for long, demanding rides. Eschler compression leg bands and ultra soft mesh uppers complete this garment – a favorite of competitive cyclists around the world.
These bibs were designed and developed for serious riders and include the Self-Fabric Leg Compression Band that racers all over the world prefer. The Compression Band makes for a longer, more comfortable short, that will never ride up or bind. (Riders wanting a shorter inseam may prefer the Ascent Bibs with Silicone Grippers.)
Eschler PowerGrid is a Swiss-made fabric designed to actively absorb perspiration without drying the skin. Thanks to the hygienic, skin-friendly qualities, and freedom of movement, Eschler fabrics ensure outstanding wearer comfort. While engineered to keep the body warm in cold weather, the fabric also helps to regulate the climate against the skin, and thus ensure optimal thermal balance of the body in warm weather as well. Membrane technology makes the fabric wind and water resistant, making Eschler fabrics good protection against the elements while allowing air circulation and promoting optimal breathability.
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.

Been using the Summit Pro bib for about 4 months and was very pleasantly surprised at how comfortable the chamois is for long rides. I have 2 Assos bibs and I think that the Summit Pro (at less than half the price of the Assos bibs) is more comfortable. I will say that it is almost too long as it nearly goes to crease behind my knee (I am 5'-10.5" tall at 180 lbs). The description mentions that it is longer than their other bibs. The fit is otherwise very good. The quality is excellent and looks like it will hold up for a long time. I plan to order another one soon. In my opinion, the best bib for the $.

I've worn my new Summit Pro bibs a few times now and I'm very impressed with the comfort of the chamois and the quality of the fabric. The only negative for me is I need a size Large to accommodate my thighs and hips (ok...and my waist), but at 5'9" the shorts are a touch too long. But that's me being uber sensitive; they still feel great and for the price, these bibs are hard to beat.

I'm 6'5" 190 lbs. The XXL fits great. Chamois is great, put 100 miles on them this weekend with no discomfort. Being tall, I was always disappointed with fit of regular shorts, tried these bibs and love them.

Love the leg band with it's nice rubber grips. Really good quality materials you know they paid attention to this. The padding is nice and thick but a bit wide. I'm 5'8" and the medium bibs fit perfectly. Great value.

Summit Pro Bib short is the best bib short I have ever worn. I am replacing my Assos with Pactimo bib shorts. I can comfortable ride 6 hours in this short. However, the shorts are to be washed in a bag but Pactimo did not include a bag with the bib short. I would recommend these bib shorts to anyone wanting a quality bib short.

These are hands down the best bibs I've owned. The chamois is what separates this bib from everything else on the market. In addition, the leg grippers stay put, even after multiple washings. I couldn't be more satisfied. If you're on the fence about purchasing these, just pull the trigger. You won't be disappointed.

The fit and feel of these bibs is wonderful, they are probably the best I have ever purchased. I liked them so much it was almost physically painful to watch them being cut to get them off of me after a crash a few weeks back. I went down hard on a wet rode and while the bibs survived with barely a scratch unfortunately my femur wasn't as lucky. I tried, but I couldn't convince the hospital staff to find a way to remove them without scissors. When I'm able to be back on the bike I'll definitely be purchasing more of the Summit Pro Bibs!

The bibs fit great and the chamois is very comfortable. First time I used them was on a 50 mile group ride and I didn't have any discomfort. I like my bibs and shorts to fit snug. I got a Medium size Bib. I'm 5'9" and 170lbs. love the fit.

BUT, man they are comfortable. I wore them around my house for about 30-minutes and didn't want to take them off. And I can only assume based on the other reviews that they will be better on the bike (and at that point I would give 5-stars). I bought the Ascent Bib last Spring and loved them but I really like the longer cut on the Summit. Can't wait to try them out.

THE BEST I'VE WORN.
after 6 months they still look new, and are the only bibs i want to use.

I own bibs from Louis Garneau, Pearl, Forte, Performance, Cannondale, Descente, you name it, I've got 'em (I've been a serious rider for 20+ years). This is the MOST COMFORTABLE bib shorts I've ever worn. And I don't give compliments easily. The small fits perfectly (I'm 5'10", 139 lbs), are anatomically correct with the forward bend, the chamois is amazing (!!), the material transfers sweat away from my body, the legs don't ride up due to the awesome grippers, they fit snugly and don't chafe at all (even on my century Sunday rides), and are my definition of the perfect cycling bibs. I am disappointed when they're in the wash and I have to ride with another bib. Thanks for making top notch cycling apparel. Spandex geeks everywhere have a true reason to rejoice and ride that extra mile in the saddle.

I haven't had time to do a long ride with the bibs, but from the short rides I have done so far, I really like these shorts. The length takes some getting used to, as they sit just above the knee for me. I'm 6'1" and 185 so I was on the border between L and M. I ended up getting the large, and they feel great. No pulling on the straps, no super tight feel, but no real slop either.
Bottom line: I'm impressed and want to try some of their other products now.

As expected, this bib had a great fit. Really like the leg spandex and grips. Nice wide over the shoulder straps. Chamois was not overly large and didn't even notice it was there after a few miles. 5"10/150 - large (slightly larger than I expected but think a medium will be too small). Recommended.

My Summit Pro bibs arrived on the Friday before labor day. Over the next three days I put in 250 miles of hard riding, all with the Summit Pro's (yes, I washed them after each day.) NOT ONCE did I feel the least bit of discomfort. If I had the legs to do another 250 miles, I'm guessing I still would have been comfortable in these bibs. I'm still getting used to the longer leg. That's not a criticism, I just will get a new tan line.

Great fit and comfort right out of the package.
They match up to all my castellis and pearl izumis.

These were my first PACTIMO product. The material is different, almosta weave. The size was right I am 6 ft 1 in 165 lbs and the large fit and the straps were the right length. The chamois is great and in the right place. Nice long leg length. I told my friend about them.

I hate bibs that ride up your thigh . . . these are longer, stay put and are super comfy. About a dozen rides so far and they are holding up to washing/drying well. I'll be ordering more.

Comfortable on long rides, fits me well. I recommend it.
I am wearing small and I am 5'8'' and the fit is fine.
One of the best bib shorts I ever owned.

I bought these with a 50% off deal, so $60 for a really nice bib. I don't have any other bibs to compare it, but I like the longer legs and the fell of the fabric. It as a more textured fabric as compared to regular pearl izumi shorts for example. I am 6'2, 185, 33.5 inch waist, thin build with long legs. I bought a size XL, as I don't normally prefer a super tight, race type fit. These seem to be a good fit, not loose on the legs, shoulder straps aren't too tight. I think a size L would've been a bit too tight for my liking. The "Pactimo" logo peeled off the right thigh on the very first ride, but no a big deal.

I have LG and Descente and these are much more comfortable and at a much better price. I'll be buying more when needed.
