How cool would it be to be a professional cyclist; traveling the world, getting the best gear for free, riding your bike for a job?! But then again you'd have March training camps with mind-numbing eight-hour training rides, giving up dessert, beer, and all the other good food groups. And we imagine living out of the back of your car must get old after a few years.
Pretend Pro's give you the best of both worlds; you look ProAF swaddled in fancy textured compression fabric and you can still down a sixer after sleeping through your training ride with zero guilt.
Honeycomb texture adds compression, aids durability and looks bad as hell. Reflective heat-transfer decals for even more style. Soft lay-flat bib straps. Long-distance comfort pad to stay fresh until the finish.
Made in Tuscany, Italy.
Textured "Honeycomb" Italian fabric with a Dolomiti long distance pad.
Reflective Lion of Flanders on each leg.
Reflective "Pretend Pro" on back.
10.5 inch (27cm) inseam.
The problem with chamois pads is that they're either so thick you feel like you're sitting on a diaper, or they're sleek and lightweight but with no real cushioning.
For the new generation of our bib shorts, we wanted to do something special. We found one of the heritage Italian pad manufacturers, with over 50 years of experience working with pro teams, and with their guidance we chose what we think is the perfect pad for these bibs.
This is our workhorse pad: comfortable and durable for long rides and trainer sessions (which we all know are the ultimate test). Our riders have put thousands of miles on it and they tell us it "just disappears" beneath them.
