Salopette Miles Gregarius Green

Salopette Miles Gregarius Green

Miles Gregarius was the name given to basic foot soldiers in the Roman Legion. To be accepted into a Legion this so-called ‘basic’ foot soldier had to be to able cover 24 Roman miles (36 km) in under five hours carrying at least 30 kg of weight.
The Salopette Miles Gregarius represents Q36.5’s re-construction of the ‘traditional’ modern bib short feeling – after several years of research into the extreme feelings of the future, with the L1 and Vented models - to produce a best-quality and high value essential for riders who like their equipment simple and effective.

While the Gregarius is designed for riders who are more comfortable in a traditional feeling bib short, it is no way ‘normal’, integrating as it does a great deal of the innovations from the L1 and Vented models. The Gregarius inherits the same FUSION chamois as that found on the Vented and Long Salopette, the same proprietary tubular brace construction (here in a combination of mesh and high density polyamide) and lumbar support panel (identical fabric to all other Q36.5 bib shorts and tights).

The most significant change regards the return to the use of a knitted fabric (the L1 and Vented are the only bib shorts in the world to exclusively use high-density woven fabrics in their construction), in this case a low volume flat knit fabric with robust surface and extremely fast drying times. The end result is a fusion of the breakthrough details of the L1 and Vented with softer knitted fabrics and silicon leg grippers. It is best suited to riders who prefer a familiar, traditional, bib short model but are uninterested in the decadent extras or ‘fashion- fee’ that other high end brands constrain their customers to pay for together with a comfortable, good quality, no-nonsense bib short (which in reality is all they actually want).

Please note that we do not believe that the Gregarius is more suitable to certain riding conditions or distances than the L1 or Vented. All three are constructed as bib-shorts to be used in the full range of ride distances and types. Their difference lies in their different feeling and we recommend that the rider choose between the two according to this criteria.
