The Tiger Bibs Shorts, Top of the range, is now made with all new fabric: GRANFONDO LIGHT. The fabric features two plies of materials: polyester on the inside and polyamide on the outer side; this sophisticated construction system allows for quicker respiration and heat release with maximum comfort guaranteed. The fabric- GF LIGHT maintains, as on all our TIGER range, Muscular Curb, resistance and elasticity, reducing the compression.
The Bibs anatomy changed from the waistline to the shoulders. Effectivelythe garment has been completely re designed. The new design features ananatomical shape that follows the muscular fasciae of the chest and of the abdomen.
The border/tape of the bibs is now applied with a thermal taping system/bonding, no longer with a traditional sewing method. The thermal bonding/taping system, thanks to the glue that melts at a high temperature, allowsthe fabric to maintain its full elasticity; While as the traditional sewing is incontrast creates resistance. The thickness of the border/tape is considerablyreduced; it is softer, reducing the friction with the skin to almost nil. As oneof our Pro riders said, “These Bib Shorts fit perfectly. They don’t move aroundand you don’t feel its on your body”.
The elastic band/anti ride-up remains the same type of band used to date,very elasticated – what has changed is the application to the shorts andis now applied with the same thermal bonding system to give to the legsmore freedom of movement. The thickness of the thermal bonding is reduced,compared to the traditional sewing and offers more flexibility. This new systemalso reduces the friction with the body near to zero.
