The Padrone bib short is a fashion forward garment that is just chock full of high tech goodness. In short, it proves that bibs can be both stylish and functional at the same time. Truth be told, style and materials that optimize performance would not amount to much without proper fit. Capo spent a lot of time figuring out the proper panel curves and dimensions to get the exacting tailor-like fit of the Padrone. From the first time you slip them on you, will feel the quality of the materials and the bespoke-like fit work together in perfect harmony.
The core of the bibs are HG Carbon Lycra. This fabric is basically 40 gauge Power Lycra with visible Resistex carbon yarn for increased moisture transfer and anti-bacterial protection and UV protection. This fabric is treated with Coldblack finishing technology to reduce heat build-up and provide effective protection from UV rays. HG Lycra is doubled up and used for the leg grippers. This offers a much smoother and more comfortable transition than a standard silicone leg gripper.
While not necessarily an inexpensive bib, it does offer a lot of bang for the buck. With proper care the Padrone should last for many seasons
