Pactimo Summit Aero Jersey & Mesh Bib Shorts Review
The SoCalCycling.com Team had the opportunity to race in Pactimo’s custom Summit Aero Jersey and Summit Mesh Bib Shorts. The SoCalCycling.com Team put the kit to the test in some of the toughest stage races including the Redlands Bicycle Classic and Tour of the Gila where they experienced long, fast days in the saddle and a variety of extreme weather conditions including rain, cold and heat.
Pactimo Summit Aero Jersey
The Pactimo Summit Aero Jersey is a great jersey and has become one of my favorite jerseys. It features a slim aerodynamic fit while offering exceptional breathability. In addition to the three back pockets, there are two zippered side pockets for valuables as well as two inner pockets. My favorite part of this jersey is the semi-auto locking zipper. By flipping the zipper up, I can unzip the jersey by pulling it open with one hand while keeping the other on the bars. Overall it is a very comfortable and well fitting jersey. I am 5’10 140 pounds and a XS fits like a second skin.
Pactimo Summit Mesh Bib Shorts
The Pactimo Summit Mesh Bib Shorts are one of the best types of bib I have worn up to this point. It features Flash coldblack technology throughout the rise fabric that pushes heat and perspiration away from the skin while also providing UV protection. The mesh-like leg bands provide a firm compression fit that holds above the knee while allowing maximal breathability. The Elastic Interface chamois (purple pad) is designed with a varying density perforated pad that provides exceptional comfort to the sit bones as well as the front and sides. It keeps me comfortable in the saddle for very long rides and is my go to bib shorts for 5 hour+ endurance rides. The sizing is very on point with other brands such as Rapha and Velocio. I am 5’10 and 140 pounds wear size Small bib short.
