All size guides on the Prendas website have been specifically prepared to help you get the right size garment. We do not use generic charts from manufacturers, we measure every garment that we sell. It is worth noting that our sizing recommendations are based on a close fit, so if you want a bit of room, it is sometimes advisable to go up one size.
Nalini garments with a ‘Race’ fit are designed to be tight fitting. The sizes given in the guide are matched to the cut and you will not have to adjust your selection accordingly. However, if you'd prefer the garment to be of a slightly looser fit, or you are at the higher end of the measurement range, then you should consider going up to the next size.
Nalini has exclusively taken World Tour race proven crash protection technology developed in conjunction with Team DSM Firmenich and created a pair of high-performance bib-shorts that will protect you in the event of the unexpected. With a new level of softness, lightness, comfort and strength, these bib-shorts utilise the brand new Kinetech PROTEKT® fabric which contains a weave of DYNEEMA® fibres in a strategic placement on the hips.
Kinetech describe DYNEEMA® as a “Polyethylene fibre with an ultra-high molecular orientation, bringing unique properties. With an ultra-high tensile strength 15 times stronger than steel it combines strength with exception lightness” For a fabric so light and soft, it seems counter-intuitive that it is virtually impossible to cut or tear. The Kinetech PROTEKT® fabric also has superior aerodynamic qualities due to its weave, and by being placed on the hips combines high abrasion, cut and tear resistance with very low drag.
Other benefits to Dyneema PROTEKT® are that it has high UV resistance, high chemical resistance and it is hydrophobic. Another Kinetech fabric with a smooth and silky touch is utilised in the rest of the bib and legs with hem special silicone-free thin band which grips like rubber and is again from the Kinetech stable of materials. Why not invest in a bib short that is fast and will protect you in the event of the unexpected.
