Alé Speedfondo Bib ShortsThe Speedfondo Bib Shorts from Ale may look clean and simple but they hide their technical features well. A DWR finish ensures water-repellency while a hydrophilic inner offers incredible wicking, breathability and quick drying times.For dedicated cyclists who ride, race and train year-round the Speedfondo Bib Shorts are a brilliant option to choose. The main fabric is Series S 41 WR Active Comfort, a material that lightly compresses the muscles and thanks to a high elastomer content is both lightweight and flexible for smooth and fluid pedalling. During the course of a ride, you may encounter a rain shower but that’s not a problem either, as the shorts also feature a DWR finish, keeping comfort levels up while the showers pass through. Comfort-focused details such as the raw cut ’Zero Friction’ bib straps, with elastic bonded seams, and the Evo Stability System, highly elastic second skin leg hems which hold firm without excess pressure, create a short that will soon disappear from your mind as you enjoy the ride. The ’Open Bib’ sees the upper benefit from an increase in breathability and ventilation, leaving you fresh even during the toughest of training sessions or longest and hottest of climbs. Ale’s top of the line “8HF” pad can be found inside the shorts – this utilises an elastic microfibre with memory padding, strategically positioned at the saddle contact points for maximum comfort. In the perineal and ischiatic area, the higher density padding ensures the utmost support against bumps and vibrations. The central relief channel was developed to protect the nerve endings while the lateral shaped wings are flexible to follow the body for complete support and comfort when pedalling, even over the roughest of roads.FeaturesMaterials: 59% Polyamide, 41% ElastaneBibs: 54% Polyester, 46% ElastaneDWR finishOpen BibZero FrictionEvo Stability SystemMinimal seams8HF seat insertSuggested temperature range: 18 to 30 degreesBuy Alé Clothing from Chain Reaction Cycles, the World’s Largest Online Bike Store.
