As the premier piece in its women's bib short collection, De Marchi's Veloce Women's Bib Shorts receive the highest end materials and construction out of the entire line. Though it's been around for a couple of years, the Veloce received a few updates this year, including redesigned areas of compression along its main body and a new Elastic Interface Technology chamois. Whether you're carving out time for daily training rides or you simply appreciate the fit and function of top-end kit, the Veloce won't make you sacrifice on either count. De Marchi starts with Lycra when constructing the Veloce, trusting a version of the fabric with an elastomeric count of 20 for a supportive, contoured fit. We wouldn't go so far as to describe it as heavy, as Lycra is still an incredibly breathable material, but the fabric provides a nearly medical-grade compressive fit around your muscles, aiming to limit the fatiguing effects of road vibrations to help your body feel better, longer. The fabric's material composition also helps it hold its shape, so it springs back to its original form after high-mileage rides or washing. This year, De Marchi felt it had room to make improvements to the back area of the bibs, reshaping the transition area between the waist and the start of the mesh bibs to provide a more stable fit without sacrificing breathability. The result is a high, supportive waist that blends cleanly with the airy, soft mesh bib. For long-ride comfort, De Marchi trusts the chamois experts at Elastic Interface, choosing to grace the Veloce with the brand's N-Dura women's-specific chamois for its plush, multi-density foam specifically designed for longer days in the saddle. A stretchy microfiber liner ensures the chamois will remain breathable in hot weather while resisting odors and chafing. It's a long cry from the original, deer skin chamois gracing De Marchi's first cycling shorts. And that's a good thing. The shorts are finished with details like jacquard leg grip...

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
