Bib-free shorts engineered for utility and all-day comfort. Built for base miles and endurance epics, whether they’re on the road or the indoor trainer.
The absence of bib straps compounds the difficulty of dialing the perfect ride-tuned fit. To address that, we reimagined the waistband with a stabilizing elastic layer that anchors the fit and an additional top band of mesh that extends coverage, independent of the elastic band, for comfort, moisture management, and to eliminate gaps between shorts and jersey while in the saddle. The updated insert features increased ventilation, a reduced footprint, and a new Odor Control Top Sheet Tex in Sugar Blue.
Type.429 is flexible enough for a streamlined fit, breathable enough for the heights of Summer, compressive enough to respond to and support your body, and substantial enough to resist the abuse of countless kilometers. A true daily workhorse.
C2 AEPD regularFit is based on our performance race models but tuned for comfort with a more accomodating waist.
Ultralight Leg Grippers: 4.5 cm elastane band naturally grips the thigh without silicone treatment to deliver a smooth, ultra-light hold.
Shock-Absorb Damping Mono: Compressive foam layers in a 9 mm endurance platform. Thermoformed shaping reduces ridges and irritation.
goldenGate: The stitching pattern anchors the front and back but lets the insert's body float, allowing the chamois to move with your body rather than against it.
3D Waffle: A patented, three-layer perforated foam that increases breathability and eliminates excess weight.
