The Salopette Wolf 2.0 is an upgraded, augmented version with a completely new proprietary pattern to increase comfort during the ride. We’ve also designed a new construction of the brace straps. We have introduced our anti-stress panel in the front of the crotch area resulting in less pressure and increased mobility.
The Salopette is becoming more and more popular on winter rides and is sending the traditional three-quarter bib tights into retirement.
For highly competitive riders any season except racing season remains the season of anticipation. A constant feed of photos of pros training in the Canary Islands, Mallorca or Qatar promote the false sensation that the racing period is just around the corner. The pros are riding in shorts and knee or leg warmers. At the café you proclaim “io sono corridore, la calzamaglia mica la indosso”. Your winter tights provide you with a tactile sensation light years away from the ‘race feel’ of your favourite bib shorts (for a next-generation leg-weapon pair of winter tights please see our Long Salopette). So you insist on wearing bibs and leg warmers to the very limit of thermal comfort, 7°, 6°, 5°c, just to keep the sense of anticipation high, to maintain that race-ready look…
By exploiting the technological limits of high-density weaving we are to produce a highly compact outer face for the fabric that replicates the windblocking capabilities of a 2-layer shell fabric, without the use of a membrane, thus maintaining the exceptional natural breathability of the weave. This extremely compact surface, beyond producing a startlingly low volume fabric, also greatly increases the effectiveness of the water-repellency treatment rendering it far more windproof than a regular knitted cycling fabric with DWR treatment. The inner face of the fabric is instead fleeced for thermal protection.
This new pad, the Super Moulded (SM), an extremely high-performing chamois designed for a solid and substantial feel and all-round riding support: from more upright ‘amateur rider’ and climbing positions to the ‘road riding’ position which places pressure on the perineal area all the way to the extreme angles of a Time Trial position.
