When it came time to develop our ultralight road shoe, we weren’t willing to sacrifice stiffness or comfort in the pursuit of weight savings. Weighing in at a feathery 150-grams for a size 42, the Pro Air is the lightest shoe we’ve ever produced and we did it without cutting corners. We joined forces with the carbon experts at Ruckus Composites to develop a revolutionary new carbon sole design that is 20-percent lighter than the impressively light Pro Road V5 sole without sacrificing stiffness. We weren’t willing to compromise durability or comfort either, so the Pro Air uses a mesh laminate upper with zonal construction to reinforce critical areas while shedding weight from regions where it isn’t needed. Despite the paltry gram count, the Pro Air is still fully-featured with a replaceable insole and lace keeper to keep the laces securely in place.
Most of us have a special bib, the one we save for the long day; this one is sure to take that honor. The PRO Air Bib Short employs a stretch weave for superior compression, support and moisture transportation. Welded and taped construction eliminates irritation-causing seams, and laser-cut fabric offers a clean finish, reducing bulk and resulting in the lightest bib short in our line. Our top-rated PRO Escape 1:1® Chamois rounds out this high-performance package.
July days just got a little cooler with our PRO Air jersey. This is the lightest, coolest jersey we’ve ever produced. Using bonded seams, we’ve eliminated the bulk from stitched seams that can chafe and hold moisture. In fact, the only sewing in the entire jersey is to separate and reinforce the three pockets. The front of this jersey is cut from a stretch weave while the back uses a sublimated knit mesh to provide ultimate breathability. We’ve slimmed the collar down for a modern profile and improved ventilation.
Developed in our athlete centric Speed Shop program, the Mach 5 reduces aero drag by approximately 8% compared to a fitting jersey. Our patented Speed Sleeve construction creates an optimal close to body fit through the shoulders and chest when in the cycling position. The smoothed transition from upper arm to torso eliminates wrinkles and dramatically reduces drag. PRO Aero fabric wraps the shoulders and arms to further smooth air flow over the rider's leading edges. Our PRO Escape 1:1 Chamois with its floating top sheet design moves with you to maintain comfortable support so you can lay down the watts in relative comfort.
By the time it’s cool enough to think about wearing a long-sleeve jersey, most riders want a bit of insulation to keep the cold air at bay. Cut from a thermal fleece, we combine indispensable features like a full zip, three pockets, reflective hits and a hem gripper to deliver a jersey of exceptional value.
This versatile take on the classic snap front shirt is insulated for cold weather riding and made from a thermal rayon and recycled polyester blend. We add 60g Polartec Alpha Direct (an incredibly soft, 100% recycled polyester insulation) against the chest because it does an excellent job of trapping warm air against the body while also offering superior moisture transfer. Cordura stretch fabric elbow patches and front pockets add style as well as durability.
There are days when you need to brave cold and the elements, and our AmFIB jacket provides the necessary wind-proof, water-resistant protection to do it comfortably. This re-engineered jacket is now 50% more breathable than a traditional softshell jacket to keep you drier than ever before. Two chest vents allow you to dial ventilation on the move and a draft flap keeps the wind from penetrating the full two-way Vision zipper. Internal wrist gaskets prevent cold air from running up the sleeves to cause a chill while the drop-tail rear hem protects against road spray on wet days.
