Product description

Season : SS17
Code : Q365003
Weight : 0KG

Unlike most manufacturers, Q36.5 prefers to recommend different bib short models according to a rider’s preferred ‘feeling’ and riding style rather than for specific types of rides. We recommend the Vented bib shorts to riders who prefer an explosive style of riding, with regular changes in rhythm - compared to efficient, metronomic style which the L1 privileges. The fabrics used in the Vented (particularly the dimpled panel material), in addition to the absence of a foam cover in the chamois area, mean that the Vented can also be considered particularly suitable when the temperature rises above 30°C.

Sharing its DNA with the L1 Essential Bib Shorts the Vented is designed for the days on which you want to unleash your carefully trained explosiveness. The Vented is the result of Q36.5 experiments to produce the lightest, most unrestrained, ‘barely-there’ and free-feeling bib short possible without making concessions to comfort, safety (UV) and support. It is an exercise in maximising performance in a minimalist package.

The main difference between the L1 Essential and the Vented bib shorts lies in the pad and the sides of the shorts. Most immediately noticeable when riding is the strategically minimized chamois which employs the SUPER MOULDED chamois (identical dimensions and calibration of densities as that found on the L1) stripped of its additional padded covering and replaced by a thin anti-friction interface, producing a less substantial, more essentialist pad which nevertheless supports you in all the vital places.

The new side panels of the Vented are constructed not from mesh, which is often recklessly employed by others in an effort to save weight at the significant expense of UV-protection, but a proprietary ultralight vented ‘post-mesh’ mesh. Instead of alternating between open and closed surfaces, as mesh does, the fabric used in the Vented short is once again a high density material woven into a 3D dimpled pattern with variable thicknesses. Not only does this guarantee 50+SBF UF protection but the micro-turbulence created by the dimpled surface has a ‘radiator’ effect allowing for the most effective dispersal of heat from your legs helping to optimise muscle temperature and which is proportional to effort and speed.

The tubular braces on other hand do employ a fine mesh fabric, while the Lumbar support panel and silicone-free leg closure remain identical to those of the L1. The fabric used for the remaining panels is a marginally less dense version of the L1’s proprietary 6.6 polyamide fabric. The result is another extreme vision of the future of cycling clothing.

The proprietary fabrics used in Q36.5 clothing function optimally when the fit is snug against the body and it is an inherent design element of the brand. This closeness and pre-shape cut lends the ergogenic qualities that enable the fabrics to better support and stabilise the body, but this closeness is never at the expense of comfort and there is a notable freedom of movement when adopting the riding position.

All in all the Q36.5 Essential L1 Bib shorts offer the versatility of use for 3 seasons and a guarantee of body temperature stability above 18oC. Combined with unmatched comfort and muscular support the durability belies their low weight and ensures that your shorts will continue to perform for years

Size Guide

We recommend purchasing and wearing your Q36.5 garment ‘true to size’ - if you are usually a Medium, purchase a Medium!

When trying on a Q36.5 garment for the first time please keep in mind that cut and fit is designed for on the bike comfort and performance and the user may feel a very minor degree of strain (eg. in the shoulder and chest area of the jersey or the bib short braces) when standing upright. When on the bicycle in a riding position this feeling will literally disappear and be replaced by excellent ease of movement, comfort and stability.

Technical Information

Please note: The choice of extremely dense lightweight materials means that the Salopette L1 Essential improves with use and will reach, and subsequently maintain, its optimum comfort condition after approximately 10 washes.

We recommend washing the bib shorts before their first use.
