Sportful Fiandre NoRain Pro Bibshort
Pro cyclists, like those of the Sportful-sponsored Bahrain-Merida and BORA-hansgrohe cycling teams, have little choice but to train and race in all weather conditions. When it is cool and wet, such as you find in the Spring Classics season, a lightly thermal bib short with highly effective water resistance can be crucial to keeping comfortable on the road to success. The Fiandre NoRain Pro Bibshort repels water with ease, while also blocking wind. The brushed fleece inner surface of the NoRain nanotechnology water-repellent Thermal fabric is soft on the skin and holds heat close to the body while also releasing excess moisture.
The anatomic bib short moves and flows with the body while pedaling in an aggressive cycling position. The panels of the short bottom align with the large muscle group, and add compression which keeps blood flowing while preventing the muscles from vibrating with road noise. Sportful uses minimal seaming which not only allows the piece to slide smoothly on the skin, but also adds water protection. The bottom is finished with elastic leg bands with raw-cut edges. Silicone dot grippers serve to hold the bands in place. The Total Comfort chamois pad adds superior comfort with very little bulk, a system that has graced the company's best bib shorts.
As for the bib upper, the design adds excellent support for the lower abdominal zone, as well as the external obliques and fine muscles of the lower back, again with mild to moderate compression against annoying vibrations. The bib straps are lie-flat style, with perforations to release heat and moisture. A full rear center panel up the back holds the strap concept in line while also retaining some heat.
You don't need to be a pro cyclist to take full advantage of the Sportful Fiandre NoRain Pro Bibshort in the Spring and Fall seasons, just one who is willing to ride when others might find something else to do. Your commitment is matched by the Fiandre Pro line-up, making Sportful your best choice for all conditions cycling.
