The designers at De Marchi know that when cyclists begin searching for their next pair of go to bib shorts, muscle support and comfort are always at the top of the list. The updated Veloce Bib Shorts check these boxes in true Italian fashion, as they rely on a carefully selected blend of compressive fabrics and a redesigned chamois to keep you feeling and looking sharp on the road. The foundation of the Veloce is De Marchi's Contour 2. 0 fit, which is designed to support your muscles and allow you to generate increased pedal force with less fatigue. To achieve this, De Marchi selected fabrics of varying weights and elasticities from 20% to 25% and engineered them to wrap around the legs, which reduces fatigue causing muscle vibration, while encouraging springback, or efficient return to a natural position. The panels are also designed with an ergonomic shape and finished with a microfiber and gel leg gripper, so they won't ride up or bunch uncomfortably, and the bibs are made of semi rigid mesh that's impregnated with active carbon fiber for increased cooling and evaporation. Inside the shorts, Elastic Interface's Endurance 3D chamois provides stretchy, targeted cushioning for your sensitive areas. Its high density foam is laid out in dual half moon patterns, which gives you support where you need it and space where you don't, and the whole package is finished with a soft and quick drying bacteria static lining, with actually prevents the growth of bacteria rather than employing chemicals to kill existing organisms. The Veloce also boasts SPF 50 sun protection and reflective details to help keep you visible in low light conditions.
