OK, some words actually will be needed to explain just how cool these bibs are:
Back in the 1990s, Marco Pantani’s remarkable ride to glory was in part sponsored by Carrera, the popular and fashionable jean maker. Pantani’s Carrera team kit – made by Nalini – featured “denim” bibshorts and jerseys, one of the more memorable pro team kits of the era.
And, now they are back. Nalini is now offering a retro replica Carrera team kit – just like the one Italy’s tragic cycling hero wore during his heyday. The Nalini-Carrera-Pantani replica gear will be imported exclusively by Albabici (www.albabici.com). Both bibshorts and matching jerseys are available.
Update: We have word from Albabici that the pockets are functional.
