Q36.5 Men's Long Salopette L1 Bib TIghts
Black Friday Sale Q36.5 Long Salopette L1 Bib TIghts
The king of the collection. Nothing extra. Nothing standard.
Based on the fit and construction of the Salopette L1 Essential, these tights are built with the same proprietary Tubular Brace System, multi-technology chamois and ergogenic support panels as the Black Friday Sale Q36.5 flagship bib shorts. The leg panels are constructed from the lightweight insulating mid-season UFHybrid Shell fabric also used on the long sleeve Hybrid Que and are cut with a ‘pre-shape design’ (note the way the tights ‘fall’ into a riding position even when unworn, on a hanger) and no frontal facing seams for greater comfort, support and aerodynamics. The threads used for both fabrics have also undergone a water-repellency treatment prior to being woven (so as to maintain their ‘natural’ structure), improving drying time as well as resistance to water making the tights an excellent choice for wet-weather riding.
Users of the Long Salopette will note that they offer the same unique feeling of muscular support and guided movement (vectorial elasticity) as the flagship Salopette L1 Essential during the pedaling action. Cut and fabric have been astutely calibrated to drive high performance rides.
Weight 225g, only 60g more than summer bib shorts.
the Salopette L1 Essential is inspired by neither the 2-panel (Descente) or 8-panel (Assos) concepts which have dominated since the mid-80s, but is cut according to an entirely new Ergogenic Pattern for the astute calibration of support for different muscular groups during exercise, all with minimal use of seams (and none frontal facing, for increased aerodynamics).
the Salopette L1 Essential is built entirely from one Italian 6.6 polyamide woven in 4 different densities used at different points of the design for maximum athletic efficiency. The greatest density (Modulus Force warp 510, weft 620) is used in the lumbar panel of the shorts where it works actively to improve stability and body alignment during the pedal stroke as well as reducing muscle fatigue. All other panels are similarly calibrated, in co-ordination with the unique minimally paneled pattern of the shorts, to actively support the rider during activity: sensitive riders will notice the sensation of ease of movement, as the motion of the legs are guided by the particular Vectorial Elasticity of the garment.
The threads used for the fabric undergo a water-repellence treatment before being woven (so as to maintain their ‘natural’ structure), improving drying time as well as resistance to water making the bib shorts a particularly good riding choice in wet weather.
Differently to the traditional knitted fabric used for most top-end bib shorts, the extraordinarily high-density nylon 6.6 structure used in the Salopette L1 Essential allows for maximum robustness at a lower weight, as well as a significantly longer product life.
the Salopette L1 Essential is constructed with an entirely new proprietary Tubular Brace System which provides a softer and more anatomic fitting and removes all seams from contact with the body for greater comfort.
the Salopette L1 Essential is the first bib short in the world to use both sewn and thermo-moulded padding technologies in a single chamois, fusing the best of both into a single design: 120kg highest density open cell foam is cut and sewn for the perineal (front) area, where the most flexibility and breathability is required while ‘smooth’ multidensity thermo-moulded pads are used for the ischial (rear) area, where flexibility is at less of a premium, compared to support and padding.
UNIQUE LEG GRIP SYSTEM
the use of the traditional elasticated leg opening (which can bother riders in moments of maximum exertion) is eliminated entirely in favour of a softer treated polyamide-elastane gripper sewn into the inner side of the opening.
Please note that the choice of extremely dense lightweight materials means that the Salopette L1 Essential improves with use and will reach, and subsequently maintain, its optimum comfort condition after approximately 10 washes. We recommend washing the bib shorts before their first use.
Please note that these are not full winter tights. They are a mid-weight fabric and offer the best riding solution for whenever the weather threatens to drop below 18°c during Spring and Fall, as well as early winters for cyclists who ride and train at particularly high intensities.
