Made from a lightweight Lycra, the Xtract Lite Bib Shorts have a barely-there feel and yet they provide superb support for your muscles when cycling. The Lycra is quick to deal with sweat too, wicking it away for extra comfort while also providing a UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) of 50+. To the upper body, the mesh bib section is also quick-wicking and allows copious amounts of airflow, speeding up cooling via sweat evaporation. To keep the shorts in place when pedalling, the leg grippers feature a silicone print on the inside, preventing them from riding up. And selected seams are flat locked to prevent chafing and boost durability. MEN’S 500 SERIES Pad If you are riding in hot climate zones, temperature regulation is the most critical challenge. The pad is one of the key areas where heat build-up can cause core body temperatures to rise adversely. The new Endura 500 series pad used in the Xtract Lite collection tackles the problem head-on, incorporating a new generation of water expelling foams. DisperseFoam™, a global exclusive for Endura, features a disruptive foam cell construction which provides superior drying and dramatically improved air permeability compared to conventional PU foams. The smooth, Continuously Variable Profile and high stretch properties reduce the risk of chafing, ensuring comfort in the saddle. It also features a silver yarn fabric with cool touch, rapid drying and permanent antibacterial properties.
