If offline is the new luxury, it follows that the "no-internet" T-Rex is the icon of luxury for the 2020s. Move over, Polo horse guy.
And for good measure, we put the dino T-Rex runner game on the straps.
We spent our summer vacation in Tuscany (I know, rough) with sportswear engineers and ex-pro racers to re-engineer the straps and fit of our bibs. Rendered in a luxurious MitiSpa Italian fabric, the new performance fit contours the body to optimize pad placement for all-day comfort at the contact points while reducing creases in the hips and crotch and improving compression in the cuffs.
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.
