      Salopette Elite, Cycling Bib Shorts

      The ultimate cycling short.

      The name Elite refers to the special unit of the Military Corps and, just like this special unit, the bib short is something essential and effective. The Salopette Elite is super light, protects and is also smart as it provides excellent temperature control.

      1. Super light – this is the lighter bib short of our Collection yet it doesn’t sacrifice comfort: 148gr (size M)
      2. Protective – thanks to the special Dyneema® yarn used for the inserts on the side panels and seat area, the short has an extraordinary resistance in case of a crash, does not pill in the seat area and allows for a more stable position on the saddle.
      3. Smart – the bib short provides excellent temperature control, maintaining a consistent body temperature and reacts to different temperatures thanks to the conductive properties of the two combined fabrics that we use. The Dyneema® insert coupled with our other high-density woven fabric are designed to work like a radiator; storing excess heat and releasing it into the environment. The Salopette Elite helps keep the body temperature stable even during more passive stages of training or races in variable weather conditions. A common problem is the crotch area overheating, to combat this we have re-designed the Chamois Fusion and now introduce the Chamois Fusion Vented with light perforated panels at the front part of the insert.

      The Salopette Elite has similar technologies as the Dottore:

      • The traditional elastic band grip at the leg has been eliminated thanks to our development of a high-density proprietary fabric which allows a raw cut and a surface finish that grips without the use of silicon.
      • A new, more minimalistic shoulder strap system with the same tubular construction and strong, super light mesh.
      • The high-density proprietary fabric that we use for the leg to increase proprioception.
      • Exacting lumbar support.

    Ergogenic Pattern

    An Ergogenic Pattern garment has been designed in such a way as that all panels and fabrics are tuned to support specific musculature groups during sporting activity. Garments designed with Ergogenic Patterns will be distinguished by their extremely snug but not constrictive feel and increased stability during the pedalling motion, as the fabric, cut and panel alignment support a balanced position and accordingly reduce muscular fatigue on longer or more intense rides.

    Vectorial Elasticity

    An extension of the Ergogenic pattern concept Vectorial Elasticity particularly refers to the intelligent alignment of panels so that the ergogenic qualities of the fabric (modulus force, elastic return and stretch) are orientated in function of the direction of the pedalling action conferring a: stabilization of fibres which may be disturbed by bumps and other irregularities in the road surface; superior circulation thanks to the pump effect of the pressure applied to musculature; improvement in proprioception thanks to the uniform sensation of ‘second skin’ given by the material.
 The elasticity of the fabric along the warp’s vector is instead orientated to operate with least resistance on the downward motion of the foot and with greatest return during the upward motion of the foot, thus reducing fatigue and guiding an economical pedalling action.

    Pre-Shaped Fit

    A pre-shape fit garment is cut to have the least resistance to the athlete’s body when in the position it assumes while riding. Riders will notice that pre-shaped garments will, when hung unworn from a hanger, naturally fall towards a riding position. This means that while the wearer may feel a minor degree of strain or notice small creases in the garment when standing upright and not on the bike he or she will be most comfortable and aerodynamic and have greatest ease of motion when riding.
