SPITFIRE BIBTIGHT TEMPEST PROTECT (VAPOR MEN PAD)
Being both wind- and waterproof, the Spitfire Bibtight Tempest Protect pad is the ultimate bibtight for really cold days on the bike. The bibtight is breathable which means it can maintain a constant body temperature.
The newly designed bibs provide additional support in a riding position.
Freedom of movement is often an issue. So instead of straight legs we’ve inserted knee inserts made out of a less rigid type of fabric.
The Vapor pad is part of our newest generation of pads, and it’s a big step forward in terms of breathability and damping. Main research question during development was: how can we improve the damping needed to cope with the stiffness of carbon bikes without adding more material to the pad? The result: Vapor Technology.
The pad materials consist of a friction reducing, breathable top layer. 2 middle layers provide breathability and moisture transport. The main layer is where the magic happens. We use Evapore, which is a 3D webbing with better damping qualities. When put under stress, Evapore changes into a rubberized state, so even when it’s compressed to the maximum, it still provides damping. Moreover, this material is hydrophobic, meaning it transports perspiration. The pad remains dry at all times.
The benefits are obvious.
The pad remains compact.
Lower center of gravity on the saddle, more control of your bike.
Stability on the saddle is improved.
Better power transfer, less bulk.
More support with only 30% of the material.
