Some more about our shorts and bibshorts

Italian-made fabric and pads are included as standard - we don't charge extra.

Our pads are by Cytech Elastic Interface Technology, and are multi-density 3 dimensional pads designed to provide protection to the pelvic bone and throughout its rotational movement while pedaling.

We put our pads through rigorous testing, including Nick Dunne's epic 10 laps (1,600km) of Lake Taupo, and Ron Skelton's 3000 mile Race Across America.

Our shorts fabric is sourced from Carvico in Italy, and is a soft, ultraflat, multi-directional stretch premium fabric, with muscle control compression, and pilling resistance for durability.

We chose Carvico fabric because it is technically excellent, we've kept it because it is also very environmentally friendly. Not only does is use recycled fibres, it helps clean up our oceans. You can read more here.

Pads are made in accordance with Oeko-Tex® standard 100 certification - which sets a high standard for avoidance of chemicals that could be harmful to users or the environment.

Aero Shorts

If you've heard about the aero effects of dimpled fabrics, you might want to go Aero with your shorts.

Aero shorts will complement your Aero jersey, with Aeromesh detailing providing silicon-free and rubber-free grip with an aero texture.

As part of our commitment to straight-up fair pricing, we don't charge extra for Aero shorts.
