In the saddle, nothing is more important than fit and comfort. After all, a century ride is hard enough without irritation and discomfort. That's why you need to pick your apparel wisely, and where better to turn to other than the master Italian craftsmanship of Santini' With its Tempo Bib Shorts, Santini has raised the bar of comfort with compressive qualities, integrated carbon fibers, and an exclusive, proprietary chamois. For the construction of the Tempo bib shorts, Santini used a blend of materials to ensure a precise and comfortable fit. Starting with the base of the composition, Santini's Lycra Newport fabric supports the legs' muscle groups through a slightly compressive weave. While it's not compressive enough to reduce lactic acid buildup via increased circulation, the fabric does offer enough support to minimize the detriment of fatigue from road vibration and general strain. Additionally, Newport is extremely breathable, and it has a heightened level moisture management. Both of these characteristics are further exemplified through Santini's placement of Carbon fabric inserts. These hypoallergenic fibers are strategically placed along the skin in order to exploit their ability to block the UV rays and static electrical charges that aid in the buildup of lactic acids. Ultimately, the carbon fibers assist blood flow on an incremental scale, while providing a consistent thermo regulation. And while high end fabrics are fantastic, Santini's renown emanates from its characteristically Italian design and fit.
