Being cyclists like you, we know what the critical part of cycling clothing is and what are the fundamental characteristics for cycling shorts: comfort, fit and performance. For the jersey Navier Jersey we have therefore designed and developed a bib equally performing and we gave life to the Stokes Bibshort that, thanks to the aerodynamic fabric, wrinkled and Elastic Gradual Compression (EGC), models on the shapes of your body and offers you maximum muscle support during rides. The elastic bands inserted directly into it support you during the ride creating a compression effect, supporting the lower abdomen. If the pelvis is helped to stay in a position then it will swing less during the pedal stroke and you will be able to better impress the power on the pedals. The elastic bands then also produce a wrinkled surface to improve the aerodynamics of the lower body.
In a market where bike frames, wheels, shoes and components are increasingly rigid, it is essential to have a bib that allows you to pedal and perform at best in comfort and safely. There are three points of contact where the cyclist connects with the bike: the handlebars, the pedals and the saddle. And it is the contact with the saddle the most critical points for the cyclist. If you want a bib with second skin effect, thin, to improve the transfer of power and the potion on the bike, you must also have a thick material, spongy and damping that softens the vibrations coming from the tarmac. If you want a minimal pad, on the other a thick pad. Where is the compromise? Which one is the correct road to take?
STOKES Bibshort upsets the rules. This represents the top-of-the-range technology in the cycling clothing industry in terms of breathability and vibration damping. With new materials and thanks to its reduced thickness, it guarantees a lower centre of gravity on the saddle, which allows greater control of the bike more freedom in pedalling and power transfer. The pad is composed of a breathable and anti-friction upper layer and two intermediate layers that offer breathability and moisture transport. The damping characteristics are instead found in the main layer whose elastic characteristics of the material, when placed under stress, provide proper isolation from vibrations, as well as having good characteristics of water repellence that carry sweat away.
With Stokes you can pedal for as many hours as you want. With less dispersion of energy and force, the ride will be more effective, but also more economical and more incisive and with superior comfort. Combine it with the jersey Navier Jersey to have your Aero Kit complete: Navier - Stokes with the sock Froude aero Socks combined for free. Performance is first and foremost.
VP: Vapor Pad VP is the technology that allows us to have shorts so highly performing.
We have chosen to differentiate ourselves and to subvert every rule, researching, studying, testing and giving life to a unique technology in the field. We specialize in performance study, millimeter fit, perfect adjustments and marginal gain. Vapor Pad VP technology is the result of this research method that has allowed us a product as light as steam, but with a unique damping effect in the industry.
Characteristics of Vapor Pad:
SMOOTH CONCEPT: cut that eliminates different thicknesses between parts, edges, folds or seams reducing friction and friction, thanks to the gradual transition between different thicknesses and type of material with uniform density distribution
AIR FLOW: better air flow that guarantees a dry feeling. Light both in wet and wet conditions.
3D CUTTING: a single piece is cut in 3D in an anatomical shape without the use of glue or thermoforming and without any hard edge. No better multilayer construction for a best breathability and moisture absorption. Breathable, elastic, durable pad with excellent shock and vibration absorption.
LIGHTWEIGHT: 30 % less material is used to achieve the same effect
damping. This guarantees a lower centre of gravity in the saddle to have greater control of the
bike, more stability in the saddle, better power transfer and less space. All
also reducing the overall weight of the garment.
SIZE OPTIMIZATION: All sizes of shorts are linked to a different height of the athlete and therefore to a different way of riding. There is therefore no optimal position of the pad, but each size requires a different positioning of it. This is why we have designed a positioning optimized for each of our sizes, from XS to XL.
