Pactimo makes less-expensive bib options that are plenty supportive, but we like the Summit Raptors because they have a lighter, more race-oriented feel. If you want to save money and are gearing up for a gran fondo, check out the Ascent Vectors.
Racers and hard riders, check out the Raptor 2.0 bibs for its material that reflects UV rays and wicks moisture away from your skin for all-day comfort in the heat.
The Cytech chamois is fairly thick and feels like a diaper off the bike, but by hour four of your ride you’ll appreciate that extra bit of high-density foam. While the bib straps are light and generally comfortable, they can bunch up; we’d prefer lay-flat.
