Details of Q36.5 Long Salopette L1 X – Features
UF-Hybrid Shell PLUS is a super high-density woven proprietary fabric now augmented with an extra warming effect thanks to a smart fiber on the inside face called the Heat Fiber, which is produced from the residue from coffee bean processing. The fiber attracts far-infrared rays from the environment and uses them to heat the body – an increase of 1 degree Celsius in comparison to the previous Long Salopette.
The cut and construction of this new version is more spartan. The cut is the result of the evolution of the ergogenic pattern design, using a minimum of seams that are each strategically placed. A laser cut finish has also enabled us to get rid of many useless seams. The clever alignment of panels is designed to move with the direction of the pedal stroke, exploiting the vectorial elasticity of the fabric. This is a strategic design feature which can be felt by sensitive riders during the pedalling action.
Please note, this is not a pair of cycling shorts for cold temperatures. The material is of medium weight and ideal for temperatures around 5 to 15°C, in spring and fall as well as for particularly intensive tours in early winter.
Chamois Super Moulded
This new pad, the Super Moulded (SM), has the same dimensions as the FUSION and its foam padding has been calibrated according to the same scheme of variable densities and thicknesses in the perineal, ischiatic, genital and gluteal zones for an extremely sophisticated tuning of rider comfort. The chamois, as with rear part of the FUSION, uses a unique moulding technique to present smooth variations in thickness of padding, markedly improving the contact with the rider’s skin.
The SM is, like the FUSION, 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.
