Great look and the chamois is great the only problem is the size ran a little smaller than the pro summit bibs I own not sure why. The raptors are a little bit tighter but not unbearable I rode them about twenty miles and they felt just fine love the smaller width leg bands.

Recently I purchased a Summit Raptor Bib from the online store and have worn it twice. I am very impressed and extremely pleased with my purchase. The best feature is the chamois, easily the most comfortable one I have worn (I usually ride in moderate to high-end Giordana bibs or shorts). The construction of the bib along the mid-section provides firm mid-section support, added wind protection and some warmth given the falling temperatures here in the East. My only criticism is the sizing of the large. I consulted the sizing charts and determined I needed a large.The legs are slightly short, very snug around my thighs and barely tight in the crotch. Although I considered exchanging it for an XL, I decided to keep it since it seemed to fit well from the crotch up to my shoulders. During a 45 mile and a 53 mile ride, I never thought about the fit, just the fabulous comfort of the material and the chamois. Overall, I believe I will be very happy with my purchase and look forward to buying more products from Pactimo.

I have owned pearl, gore, mavic, Castelli and these are the best fitting most comfortable bibs I have. Most of my others started to become uncomfortable around 70 miles but these have remained comfortable and have the best chamois of any I have tried. More are on order.

I was referred to Pactimo by a friend who loves your clothing. So I thought I'd give it a try. Needed a pair of bibs so I looked at this brand/style. Wow!! Am I amazed at the comfort, the fit, and the design. These really impressed me. I will probably never go anywhere else. I truly like the ribbed style which makes the fit so much better. And with that, extremely comfortable. Yes, I like them that much. Thanks.

Our club has been using Pactimo for years. I thought the Summit series was the best shorts I have ever used. The Rapters are my new favorite.

I wasn't so sure about these bibs when they arrived. The material seems sort of thick and heavy and I was afraid they would be too hot on a hot day. But I was wrong. They completely disappear on your ride (wore them for 60 miles and never once thought about the straps, fit or chamois). I've never worn bibs that didn't have some sort of bunching in the front, and these have none of that. Very, very comfortable. My only issue is the material seems a little slippery on my saddle. Not sure why that is the case. Might be my saddle. But my other bibs don't feel like that. I'll still give them 5 stars even though the slippery factor may prevent me from wearing them on rides over 30 - 40 miles.

I love these bibs. From the moment I tried them on, they fit perfectly. They have more compression than the Summit Pro bibs and are a bit shorter in length, all pluses for me.
It got even better when I rode in them. These literally disappear on a ride, meaning, there has been on chaffing, binding or discomfort of any kind on any ride I've worn these. The rides range from short 1-hour intervals to longer 2-hour plus endurance rides.
I especially appreciate the way these are shaped for your riding position, which I think helps immensely! The chamois is the best I've ever tried and I've been riding for 25 years and have tried just about every brand except the really high-end Castellis and can't imagine those being better than this.
These have become my absolute favorites and will be getting more soon!
Great work Pactimo!

My club uses Pactimo for the team kit which I have in both Ascent and Summit models.
The Raptor bibs are an Evolution in design compared to the other Pactimo products and also other bibs I own.
The material feels thicker and I don’t think stretches as much as other bibs creating a good supportive feel but not like a compression product. I’m 5’9” 150 lbs and bought a medium.
To test the Raptor bibs I wore them on day 2 of the Colorado MS150 ride - 75 miles after having done 100 miles on day 1.
I wanted to write a comprehensive review but the best I can say is the bibs were so comfortable I never thought about them the entire ride. The straps and leg grippers are excellent. The material breaths very well and kept me cool. And the chamois was so good I never felt any discomfort. They are well worth the money and much better and cheeper than other manufactures premium bibs.

I have been riding with the Summit Bibs for a few weeks and really like them. The chamais is great and very comfortable on long rides. I ordered the Raptor as soon as it was available and have done a 40 mile ride and another 20 mile ride. It is definitely a step up from the Summit. The leg grippers are as good but i like that the legs are not as long as the Summit. The chamais is absolutely great. But a warning!!! I am 5 10 1/2 and weight 150 pounds. I wear a small in the Summit but the small in the Raptor is really tight and i measure below all the stats on the sizing chart. If i had not ridden them i would have returned them for a medium. Nevertheless they fit like a skin suit and once on the ride they are amazingly comfortable. So don't be afraid to purchase a size up as i will on my next order. Pactimo real knows how to make fabulous clothing at a great price.

I had high expectations, but believe the Raptor sunk it's talons into me and gave me a better ride than I imagined. The new materials are fantastic. The 'chamois' is a 'best ever' experience, and have gotten thums up on the styling. There's more pluses, but I have to get back out there and ride!

I have lost 60 lbs in the last year and a half. I have had a hard time with Bib Shorts and a good Chamois. I have tried many of the most popular brands out there. I have been very pleased with your Designer Chamois. This one is the greatest yet. Please include this Chamois in your Designer Collection. So as to have all the great art work on them.
