From the compressive, all-day comfort of the fit to the high-wear fabrics and additional cargo space, these bib shorts check all the boxes for gravel and touring support. Gravel, touring, and bikepacking require more robust equipment: these bib shorts provides the requisite durability for the inevitable abuse of cycling beyond the tarmac. The bib shorts also equipped with storage solutions for day-trip supplies or to supplement pack space and keep ride essentials readily accessible in pockets of high-stretch, extremely breathable 3-Mesh panels. Reflective stripes help ensure visibility on early departures, late returns, or those long dusks while pushing through the final miles to the next hotel or campsite.
Type.429 wraps with a lightly compressive hold for a streamlined, breathable fit. When the gravel “road” becomes little more than a path and trail-side brush closes in, side panels of Bunny Hop add a barrier against abrasion that still stretches and compresses like a road-specific textile courtesy of our woven, 50/50 polyamide and elastane blend.
C2 AEPD regularFit is based on our performance race models with a less aggressive, streamlined design and our standard leg length. Tuned for comfort in the saddle and mobility off the bike.
X-frame: A-shaped structure inherited from the braces of the MILLE GTS model, which prevents the shorts from drooping in the lower back area and guarantees a secure fit that stabilises the pad and main panel.
Silicone Leg Grippers: a stronger, gravel-friendly version of elastic that adheres to the thighs thanks to light silicone applications.
Four Pocket System: two compartmentalised thigh pockets for storing essential accessories and two discreet and secure rear pockets for small items. The pull-outs, developed to meet the demands of our cyclists, make access to the pockets easier.
Mille GTC C2
Shock-Absorb Damping Twin: two layers of microShock and filterFoam for 19 mm of gravel comfort. The thermoformed structure that reduces chafing and the Odor Control Top Sheet Tex are indispensable for cycling and bikepacking.
GoldenGate: seams that secure the pad at the front and back, but allow the pad to gently follow the movements of your body.
KraterCooler: holes on the surface of the pad that allow air to circulate inside the pad and ensure the flow of cool air on hot summer days.
3D Waffle: a patented three-layer perforated foam that increases breathability and eliminates excess weight.
