Craft's Elite Body Control Bibs Shorts are loaded with the latest technology and are the choice of the Nissan-Radio Shack-Trek pro cycling team. Craft uses a 3D design process to create a very comfortable bib that moves with the body. Body control refers to the compression of the Elite Body Control Bibs. This compression reduces muscle vibration and post-ride soreness while increasing bloodflow and performance.
For the upper straps, craft uses laser cut Stay Cool Hexachannel fabric with welded seams that virtually disappears next to the skin while aggressively moving moisture. Dimpled fabric panels enhance airflow for performance-boosting aerodynamics required at the Pro Tour level. Silicone tape on the gripper is less restrictive while still effectively holding the legs in place. Best of all, Coldblack Lycra panels reflect the Sun's rays reducing surface temperature to keep the muscles from overheating and will visibly reduce the amount of perspiration generated on a hot day.
To lay down the miles in comfort, craft employs an Elite pad made of Oeko-Tex ® certified fabric with carbon thread for moisture control and heat dissipation. Craft injects the pad with gel in three areas - under the sit bones and perineum for an Anti-Shock System that reduces vibration. Another detail is the pad and gel are sized specifically for each bib size for the absolute maximum in both fit and comfort.
