Salopette Dottore X, cycling bib shorts
Our legendary Salopette Dottore has been lifted to a new dimension. Introducing an extreme vision of our bib short Salopette Dottore, an augmented version of the King of our Collection: lighter, more breathable, more robust. Introducing a total re-design of this bib short offering the latest advancements in both textiles and construction including:
- new, unique fabric
- new, unique pattern
- new straps
Unique fabric: a new, high density proprietary fabric that’s 15% lighter than our classic Dottore bib short yet maintains the following original characteristics:
- raw cut and a surface finish that grips without the use of silicon;
- different level of graduated compression stimulating blood flow;
- real silver thread introduced into the weft of the fabric offering not only antibacterial and conductivity advantages but the thread also protects muscles from electro-magnetic smog;
- extremely effective DWR (Durable Water Resistant) treatment that protects riders in light rain conditions as well as insuring super fast drying time.
New, unique pattern: A new, ergogenic pattern cut based on the principle of using minimal seams and strategically placed panels for added pedal stroke support, reduction of muscular fatigue and an increase in proprioception.
C-Interface: Introducing a new proprietary pattern for the crotch area, aimed to improve the interface between saddle and chamois. Redesigning the construction of the crotch area was made possible by our innovative pattern cut which eliminates the central seams that normally create pressure and discomfort while on the saddle. It’s made with the addition of a Dyneema® panel that improves durability and thermoregulation thanks to the conductive properties of the polyethylene fibers.
The new pattern replicates the contact surface of the saddle and is made with a moulded fabric that adapts naturally to the different typology of saddles.
The chamois: Fusion technology for our chamois padding allows our chamois to be both sewn and thermo-moulded to create a single insert. High density, strategically placed breathable foam has been designed to eliminate friction points that have been pinpointed through ergonomic studies focused on the contact areas on saddles.
Anti-stress cut: A proprietary cut for the genital area allows more freedom of movement as well as increased comfort in the pelvic zone.
The straps: A new, minimal tubular strap construction makes these the most breathable straps with quick drying time and an increased comfort sensation thanks to the sartorial reverse tubular construction that hides the seams on the inside so they are never in contact with your skin.
Listening to our customer’s wishes, we have made some tailoring changes in our pieces including bib shorts with longer legs and a longer cut jersey for tall riders. We have introduced more sizing options including the Salopette Dottore X with a longer leg option (2cm longer) and the Jersey Pinstripe X in black will also be offered in both a regular and a long size (2cm longer).
