Product Description

Salopette Dottore L1 Black

There have been certain performance innovations in the recent history of professional cycling (for example the mania for replacing steel ball bearings for those made of ceramic in hubs, or the “unusually long” bib shorts of a certain Yankee rider in the early 2000s) which, when first spotted by hawk-eyed journalists chatting with mechanics outside team hotels the Friday before a Classic, appear to be the exclusive domain of maniacs, obsessives and garage dreamers, but which within a few years have spread like a virus through the peloton and down across the amateur ranks. Q36.5 works at this particular leading edge of innovation: pedaling, watching others pedal, and at the same time dreaming of how the experience of high performance cycling will, in the future, “feel different”. And it is to this dream that Q36.5’s new salopette, IL DOTTORE, a fine-tuned and augmented version of the Salopette L1 (Q36.5’s original product and genesis of the brand’s raison d’etre) belongs. Il Dottore – the name is a reference to both the Salopette L1’s nickname of “the teacher” and to the almost mythological, sometimes notorious, figure of the professional cyclist’s personal doctor – fine-tunes and augments the Salopette L1’s ergogenic philosophy in the following ways to become the definitive all-purpose, all-day, any-day, high performance cycling bib short of the future of competitive cycling.

    My previous all favourite bib shorts used to by the Essential L!, but now they have been dethroned by the Dottore. They have the same fit as the Essential, a densely woven fabric, the lumbar support system, tubular braces and the same chamois. What is new is the incredible new fabric with gradual compression that gives your legs a very unique feeling.like I have never experienced before. These bibs fit like a 2nd skin and support you without constricting in the slightest. They are incredibly light and yet offer such support and comfort. Bravo to Q36.5 for such a marvel of a bib short. 5 stars!!

    Indeed, Il Dottore’s ergogenic gradual compression really is adequate and appreciated when putting in the effort whilst at the same time is comfortable. The only reason for 4/5 stars is due to the issue of the gripper, which apparently is laser cut at the ends, beginning to unravel after about 30-40 washes (all product care instruction is strictly adhered to). The other parts of the bib remain in pristine condition.

    Great bibshorts. Specific due to compression, dense fabric and the feel, but a pure cyclist’s icon.

    (verified owner):

    I always trusted my shorts to another very well-known brand, and always top end items , meaning that my view of comfort, elasticity, and design is up there.
    So my expectations were high , these bib shorts have brought me on board to your brand and I think I will stick around I will rate it 4 (not 5)stars only because I know you can do better (already did that with the ELITE) on the shoulder straps, the rest of the shorts are top notch ! really happy with them.
    great job guys

    These shorts are by far my favorites. They fit better, especially the chamois, after some use and washing. I really like the materials, especially light, breathable and compressive. The customer service at Q36.5 is fantastic. I will definitely be adding to my Q36.5 collection. Well done Q36.5.

    You actually get what you pay for in this case. I reluctantly bought these bibs because of the price, now I enthusiastically buy them !

    Have ridden in these for a full season indoor and out, machine washing (in mesh garment bag) after EVERY use. They still show virtually no signs of wear….
    EXCEPT…..from my crash at 31 km/h (19+mph)…..on VERY rough pavement – a “highside” crash that shredded the shoulder of my jersey and actually tore thru some of the mesh shoulder strap……My hip skidded briefly as well and there was NO damage AT ALL to the fabric other than a mild faded look to that area now…..(I wish my flesh had fared as well !)
    after numerous subsequent washings, none of the “damage” has gotten worse.
    If I would make a suggestion for improvement it would be to upgrade the pad to a fimer material like the 200gm EI Hybrid pad offers….
