Hincapie knows better than most how important bib shorts are, which is how the Power GT Bib Shorts became so refined. With a host of carefully chosen technical fabrics, they offer the moisture control and compressive fit that long rides demand. Or to put it another way, they blend comfort, support, and safety into one incredibly complete package. Hincapie built the body of the Power GT shorts its AT2 Force Lycra Power fabric. AT2 Force Lycra was chosen for the leg panels, as it's a polyester and Lycra Power yarn blend that provides a supple, yet durable, feel. In addition to effectively wicking moisture away from your skin, this fabric provides compressive support, which that reduces muscle fatigue and helps promote positive blood flow to your muscles. This material also incorporates Coldblack technology. This is a finishing treatment that reduces the absorption of heat rays in darker fabrics, resulting in protection from the sun and improved heat management. Velocitek was chosen for the straps. This is a polyester and spandex stretch mesh that's tightly knitted as to provide excellent structure and moisture management. For the hard wearing inner thigh and saddle areas, ABR Resistor Lycra was used. This material is known for its durability, as its specially knitted nylon, polyester, and Lycra yarns combine in order to provide a durable nylon outer surface that resists abrasion. A polyester liner on the inside of these panels adds further protection from friction, and quickly wicks moisture away from the skin. The bib shorts' cuffs features Hincapie's new HyperOptic Elastane material built directly into the sleek, no elastic comfort leg bands. This multi layered fabric combines stretch elastane with high visibility reflective safety material. In daylight, the dyed elastane colors are visible, while in low light conditions these micro eyelets allow vehicle lights to reflect off of the reflective material, illuminating the fabric.The insert incorporated into bib...
