The first three-dimensional SEAMLESS bib shorts
With the Bib Shorts UNIQUE, we’re redefining performance cycling wear by introducing the first three-dimensional SEAMLESS bib shorts. The integrated structures are woven without seams in a one-piece garment.
We have been experimenting with this idea for the past few years and have finally developed the next level of comfort, a new, true ‘second skin’ sensation, that we called “Peau d’Ange” feeling.
The bib short Salopette UNIQUE is our technological leader made with a three-dimensional construction and without the use of traditional seams. The integrated parts of the short are seamless and no bonding is used. Rather, our innovation has been achieved by employing a jacquard double machine that creates a one-piece garment.
We are proud to announce that the UNIQUE bib shorts won the Red Dot Design Award for high design quality. The international jury only awards this sought-after seal of quality to products that feature an outstanding design.
The jury evaluated the design quality and degree of innovation. The fact that the product claimed its place in a strong field of participants speaks for its excellent quality.
Minimal tubular strap construction! Most breathable straps which dry quickly and offer amazing comfort thanks to the sartorial reverse tubular construction. The seams are hidden inside and thus have no contact with the skin.
Ribbed construction with different densities, conceived to improve ventilation of the abdominal area and reduce heat generation. The result is augmented breathability.
PRE SHAPED STRUCTURE
The UNIQUE’S structure is skillfully engineered with various densities of construction and pre-formed for the riding position, creating a “Peau d’Ange” (second skin) Salopette that heightens the Q36.5 ergogenic concept to the ultimate level. Every single area is tuned to support specific muscle groups during physical activity.
The Pattern on the quadriceps has been designed in shifting levels of density, which correspond to different levels of graduated compression, from the greatest at the bottom of the shorts to the least at the top, thus stimulating and enhancing the venous return during pedal action.
The bottom of the Salopette UNIQUE has been cut using laser technology and taped to enhance maximum comfort and aerodynamics.
This area has the greatest woven density and it creates a zone of support for the lumbar and the gluteus musculature. This provides the rider with improved stability, orientation, balance and proprioceptivity in this critical zone in which all the principal muscles used in the pedalling action are connected. Pure silver thread has been introduced in this area, not only for its antibacterial and conductive properties, but also for its electromagnetic field blocking properties, allowing the muscles to work without impediments.
The area in direct contact with the saddle has been reinforced with the introduction of the Cordura® Polyamide that provides more stability on the saddle, prevents loss of power and guarantees durability.
An innovative 3-dimensional chamois with a proprietary design, the FUSION VENTED offers the ideal protection between the bib short and the saddle. The high density, strategically placed breathable foam was designed using an ergonomic study investigating the contact areas on the saddle in order to find the best way to protect against all friction points on the saddle. The front of the chamois on the genital area present a softer and lighter construction in order to reduce the pressure and increase the ventilation as well.
