New Superleggero Bib Short
De Marchi Superleggero Bib Shorts with Powersilk, Black
Our lightest ever, Superleggero fuses the lightness of Silk and Lycra’s performances to create the quintessential Summer cycling bib short.
To celebrate De Marchi’s 75th Anniversary we started a new fabric development that bridges tradition with high performances and created a new paradigm in cycling shorts. For the first time ever, thanks to woven technology De Marchi has blended natural silk with recycled elastic fiber for incredible compression with nearly half the weight compared to regular cycling shorts. Powersilk is not only lighter than regular shorts’ fabrics but also more breathable, wind-resistant and anti-wrinkle. Plus, the mix of recycled nylon and natural silk allows for a sustainable production chain that drastically reduces environmental impact and waste. Newly-conceived integrated leg grippers are laser cut and seamless at the bottom for optimal compression and incredible comfort. Another exclusive innovation is our latest race-ready Elastic Interface HCS chamois pad that provides cushioning never seen before thanks to hybrid cell elastomeric cushioning elements which will make you feel like suspended in air. Possibly, the most comfortable chamois pad ever created. Anatomically shaped for road racing, the HCS chamois is also an average 20% lighter than the one featured in our previous Perfecto Leggero Bib whilst delivering approximately the double in cushioning power! A remarkable result obtained thanks to obsessive in-house research & development. Naturally bacteria-static, the new HCS chamois is also hypoallergenic and anti-odor. The new Superleggero Bib is our lightest-ever short therefore is born to perform in hot and humid weather but it also work great with normal temperatures in transitional seasons. Furtherly improved for 2023, the new Superleggero Bib short now features flat-locked seams in key friction panels.

Tradition serving the future. With Superlight Bib Short, we've combined the best properties of natural silk and recycled nylon fabric. The result is a cycling short designed for the most demanding athletes. The Powersilk fabric allows the cyclist to slip it on like a glove, providing remarkable weight savings and unparalleled durability. It's slightly wind-resistant, and its adaptability makes it perfect for riding in the hottest climates and any weather conditions, thanks to its excellent breathability. Timeless looks blend with outstanding performance in this piece. The flat seams ensure maximum comfort against the skin.
Elastic Interface HCS chamois
Softness, saddle stability, and pure performance: exclusively crafted and designed by De Marchi, the HCS chamois brings a whole new level of comfort. Thanks to special reticular elastomeric foams, it provides nearly double the cushioning compared to standard chamois, all while being up to 20% lighter than traditional ones, without compromising on maximum saddle stability. Naturally resistant to germ and bacteria formation, preventing unpleasant odors, the new HCS chamois is hypoallergenic and also made from recycled cover materials.
