While the Gregarius is designed for riders who are more comfortable in a traditional feeling bib short, it is no way ‘normal’, integrating as it does a great deal of the innovations from the L1 and Vented models. The Gregarius inherits the same FUSION chamois as that found on the Vented and Long Salopette, the same proprietary tubular brace construction (here in a combination of mesh and high density polyamide) and lumbar support panel (identical fabric to all other Q36.5 bib shorts and tights). The most significant change regards the return to the use of a knitted fabric (the L1 and Vented are the only bib shorts in the world to exclusively use high-density woven fabrics in their construction), in this case a low volume flat knit fabric with robust surface and extremely fast drying times. The end result is a fusion of the breakthrough details of the L1 and Vented with softer knitted fabrics and silicon leg grippers. It is best suited to riders who prefer a familiar, traditional, bib short model but are uninterested in the decadent extras or ‘fashion- fee’ that other high end brands constrain their customers to pay for together with a comfortable, good quality, no-nonsense bib short (which in reality is all they actually want).
