Pactimo is quickly becoming a well known name for custom cycling apparel – but what to wear before or after your ride? Whether you want to remain sponsor correct, or just want some super warm, comfy clothing, the new Pactimo Lifestyle collection is coming soon to fall weather near you. When Pactimo set out to create the collection, they wanted to keep the pieces simple, and keep branding to a minimum. Perfect for lounging around the house after your ride, or warming up in the CX pit, the collection starts with their Sport Hoody which blends thermal fabric for warmth with a full zipper to help you regulate the heat…
While it is a fairly simple design, the Sport hoody still has unique Pactimo touches like a zipper garage at the top of the collar which sits right at your chin, a zippered Napoleon pocket, and a real YKK 5mm zipper. Priced at $95, it’s available in S-2XL. A perfect pair with the Hoody or their Sport Pullover ($65), is their new Sport warm up pant ($70). Designed for use on or off the bike with a tapered leg and YKK zipper openings at the ankle, the pants include two front pockets and a zippered rear with a drawstring waist.
If you want to be a little more classic, Pactimo will be offering their High Country wool jersey as well which combines three rear pockets with classic button enclosures and a fully printable chest panel which should provide for some interesting retro inspired jerseys.
Switching from retro to incredibly modern, the new Stratos bib brings ceramic printed fabric to the table. Pactimo says that while companies have been touting the benefits of ceramic printing for abrasion resistance, it’s actually better at dissipating heat as well. In addition to the ceramic printing, the bibs have new super soft, supportive straps, and a perforated chamois and will be available as standard or as part of their custom program.
Cross is here and so are skinsuits. Pactimo has two new Ascent 3.0 long sleeve skinsuits available in distinct patterns, though both here are the Triangulate. Available in S-2XL, the skinsuits will retail for $160. Like many of Pactimo’s products, the skinsuit will also be available in a women’s cut for the same price.
Pactimo continues to develop their looks for improved visibility which includes new options like the Citrus Graphite and Midnight Blue Orange. All of their sleeves are now reflective as well as reflective panels on the rear hems.
The new color story continues through the line with matching pieces that are all meant to keep the visibility story intact. Pactimo feels that both high viz colors and reflective are important for complete visibility, so they wanted to ensure that more of the line incorporates both in an aesthetically pleasing way.
