Size Specific Pads

Size Specific Pads

All of our padded shorts feature a chamois pad which is size-specific, meaning their size varies in accordance with the size of the short. And for complete comfort on any surface, we vary the foam thickness and density for just the right amount of sit bone support.

No Underwear

No Underwear

All of our padded shorts are designed to be worn without underwear. All of our size-specific chamois pads are designed to be worn next to the skin with super soft, antibacterial topsheet material to prevent irritation. No underwear needed.

Straps or No Straps?

Straps or No Straps?

Both bib shorts with shoulder straps and regular shorts without straps provide consistent comfort on any ride. Which you opt for comes down to personal preference. To give you the choice, our range includes multiple options with and without straps, so you can choose what works best for you.

Adventure

On off-road adventures and multi-day trips, durability and storage space are paramount. These shorts are made with hard-wearing technical fabrics that are tough enough for the rough stuff, dry quickly overnight and stow away easily in bike packs. Both also feature plenty of pockets so you can carry all the provisions you need.

BREVET CHAMOIS PAD

For comfort on long rides and mixed terrain, our Cargo Bib Shorts feature the Brevet chamois pad with high-density foam for optimal support and perforations for rapid drying overnight.
