Pursue your winter rides.
While not as heavy-duty as the company's premium Padrone bib tights, the Capo Pursuit Roubaix Bib Tights are still an excellent pair of cold-weather tights that use similar fabrics in a slightly lighter package.
To place the Pursuit Roubaix bib tights near the top of its warming bottoms, Capo had to use the top-tier Thermo Roubaix Tech fabric. With a warp-knit construction, the material has a natural stretch. Within the knit, the threads follow a zig-zag pattern along the length of the tights. This allows more surface area coverage while using less material, equating directly to an airy, lightweight construction. Thermo Roubaix Tech's open, hollow core weave also accelerates moisture transfer from the skin to the quick-drying surface of the tights. However, the precise brushing process is what contributes most to its warmth. After the dying process, dedicated machines perform a brush to the inner-lining that provides a high, fleecy, and warming loft.
And while a top-end fabric is terrific, its benefits are null if the fit is out of order. That's why the Pursuit bib tights' fit is nothing short of impeccable. Using a multi-panel, contoured design, the tights follow the shape of your body, while following its movements in and out of the saddle. The uppers have been cut wide for ample surface coverage, and the cut of the stomach has been heightened for the same reasoning. And knowing that this design could make entry and exit a tad problematic, Capo installed a zipper over the stomach and at the ankles.
For the chamois, Capo went with the illustrious Elastic Interface Technology (EIT) Anatomic-L High Density Carbon insert. This chamois uses a relatively thick, variable density throughout to support the regions that need the most support, without impacting the ones that don't. The support focus is primarily placed at the perineal, ischial, and gluteal areas — the points most prone to distress from saddle pressure and compression. With its anatomic design, the Anatomic creates an abrasion-free support that promotes an increased circulation by protecting nerves like the pudendal. Further along these lines, the chamois works to dissipate any heat. Even more impressive, the insert is road-specific. EIT engineers realize that saddles and saddle positions vary throughout different disciplines of cycling, and the insert's chamois density patterns are mindful of the specific pressures of road cycling.
The Capo Pursuit Roubaix Bib Tights are available in the color Black and in five sizes from Small to XX-Large. For maximum usage, Capo suggests wearing the Pursuit bib tights between the temperatures of 40 and 50 degrees Fahrenheit.
