Marcel Kittel Rides With The Substance Of Advantage In Pro SL

Since retiring from the cut and thrust of the pro peloton in 2019, Marcel Kittel’s priorities have changed significantly. Although he has his hands full as a new father and university studies to keep him busy, he still has time to enjoy time in the saddle. Freed from the training load required to keep him at the front of bunch sprints in the world’s biggest races, he can now to pick any discipline he fancies, a fact clearly echoed by his diverse bike collection of road, cyclo-cross, gravel and mountain bikes.

When behind curly bars on road and gravel, our new ambassador rides with the substance of advantage in the new Pro SL Bibshorts – the most comfortable bibshorts we’ve ever made. Overhauled for 2020, our game changers us our award-winning multiple pad width technology and now boast a ‘perfect fit’ with lumbar support and power straps.

Our unique, multi fabric construction has been engineered to be supportive and compressive where you need it, whilst allowing for unrestricted movement. An impressive, pre-shaped panel design delivers a true on bike specific fit that’s immediately apparent when you put them on.

One of the keys to comfort is the lumbar support panel. Made from high powered fabric, it wraps around your lower back and sides, holding the bibshort firmly in place and taking some pressure off the straps, giving them a barely there feel for even the longest of rides.

High quality Italian Lycra® has been used throughout, treated with coldblack® technology that dramatically reduces heat build-up and provides UPF50 protection. To accommodate every shape, size and style we offer the Pro SLs in two leg lengths; Standard and Long. The long leg length option is 4cm longer than the standard and caters for those who prefer a little more coverage.

Our much loved 700 series pad was been developed through scientific testing in collaboration with bike fit experts gebioMized® and rider feedback from professional riders. Available in three widths this ground-breaking pad offers a semi-custom fit to match a rider’s pelvic shape, saddle and riding position. Our high tech Continuously Variable Profile technology provides supportive padding only where required, with all superfluous material removed to minimise bunching and friction and maximise moisture transfer and flexibility.

We’re so confident in our Pro SL range that we offer a no quibble, 90-day money back guarantee if you’re not satisfied with the comfort or quality.
