By now, you've probably come to expect cycling apparel from Attaquer to jump off the screen and shout. It's true, that many of the Australian manufacturer's designs are quite flashy. What you may not know, however, is that Attaquer has a more subdued line of clothing its CORE collection of which the CORE bib shorts are a part. These are a bit less flashy, but still incorporate the spectacular design and technology that have made Attaquer's other offerings famous. CORE bib shorts, like all of Attaquer's clothing, are made in Italy with Italian sourced fabrics. As you would expect, the fit is exceptional. The design, which mimics the shape of the body in the seated, pedal position, is form fitting and eliminates pulling, chafing, and bunching. As a reflection of its sunny Australian heritage, the bib short provides UPF 50 sun protection. If it can fight off sunburn in Australia, it's qualified to fight off the sun just about anywhere. The multi density chamois is also made in Italy. It's designed to draw pressure away from the perineal area, which means that the lion's share of support and substance is focused at the sit bone region. Perforations in the insert allow hot air and moisture to escape to keep you cool and dry, and the smooth Italian microfiber cover nearly eliminates friction.
