INSPIRED BY THE MOST INNOVATIVE BIBSHORT EVER In 1998 we rocked the world of cycling shorts with the Progetto Y. It had a new innovative 220-gram Lycra fabric, eight-panel true anatomic construction, innovative silicone gripper elastic, mesh bibs and that spectacular anatomic Progetto Y seat pad. Progetto Y was the inspiration for the Evoluzione short, with each of those components updated to make an extraordinarily comfortable performance short. Of particular note is the new ProDry 2Strati fabric, which uses a polyester inner layer with a nylon outer layer to move moisture away from the skin while gently compressing. The Progetto Y was our top-of-the-line short when it debuted, and this is certainly a worthy successor.
