Essential

ABOUT ESSENTIAL
A more recent initiative in the Pas Normal Studios universe. We wanted to specifically develop a range with a more endurance-based fit with some of the key technical features of our other designs. Built with a more relaxed fit for longer and more casual style riding, the Essential collection gives you the option of a less race-style cut, but with a distinct Pas Normal Studios look and feel.
The perfect all-year choice for long rides in good company. Presented through an expanded range of seasonal colour-ways, the Essential collection stands out visually and technically with its new vibrant shades and versatile features. Thoughtfully reworked and upgraded, this year’s released utilises new fabrics and manufacturing techniques for improvements in aesthetics, performance, and comfort.
ESSENTIAL JERSEY
The Essential Jersey has been completely rebuilt from the ground up for this season. With a less tight, but still sufficiently aerodynamic fit, this piece remains as equally adept to racing as it is to exploring. The easy care, wrinkle free, and quick drying properties of the jersey's fabric makes this an ideal addition to your wardrobe for leisure rides, long sportives, and multi-day bikepacking expeditions.
TECHNICAL UPDATES
Constructed form high-wicking and quick-drying Italian fabric, the reworked Essential Jersey brandishes its ability to combine form and function through high quality manufacturing techniques the use of fully dyed textiles. The sophisticated fabric composition facilitates the circulate of air between fibres, providing a natural cooling effect as you ride. Extra comfort is provided through the fabric’s tridimensional elasticity properties, allowing for perfect freedom of movement, impeccable wearability, and maximum retention of shape even after repeated washes.
ESSENTIAL BIBS
Similar to its jersey counterpart, the Essential Bibs have been completely reworked and redesigned this season to give you an unrivalled level of comfort and performance on the bike. Tailored to be our most versatile bibs yet, this piece has been remade to suit hard, fast-paced training efforts one day, and casual, more leisurely explorations the next. With the addition of a new seasonal colour-way, these bibs combine with the expanded Essential Jersey collection to create a completely new take on visual design and technical performance.
This fully dyed fabric, which now extends all the way down to the elastic grippers, has been integrated with a custom Pas Normal Studios gritted structure, providing excellent stretch for optimal comfort on the bike. The bib straps are exceptionally resilient to elastic degradation, allowing the straps to hold their shape after countless usage and washing cycles. The newly designed four-layer ultralight foam chamois pad offers exceptional durability and support for long-lasting comfort.
