Century Fabric was developed for cycling!

The Century Padded Bike Short is designed for peak performance when cycling. To achieve that goal, we use our century fabric with an excellent chamois pad.  CAUTION:  This fabric is not a yarn dyed knit like all of our other fabrics, so it may leach color if worn without first washing. Machine wash before using.  Note to White Saddle users:  This item may discolor your white saddle if you wear it before washing.  We recommend a machine wash or two before wearing on a white saddle. 

FABRIC:  Our century fabric is a warp knit with a highly technical blend of spun microfibers that are rugged and durable.  The fabric is knit with all way stretch ability. It has a high Sun Protection Factor and is very cool in the heat.  The fibers are a blend of 83% polyester and 17% Lycra Spandex.  The Lycra helps support your leg and hip muscles during the cycling activity.  To describe the touch or feel of the fabric would be to relate it to a soft, knitted cottony material with a matt black finish.  It is a lux rich feel that is not shiny or textured.  The fabric has a cool and dry feel to it.



aero tech gripper leg elastic

LEG ELASTICS:  The leg elastics are soft, non binding and feel like a second skin.  They are silicone so they are soft  next to your skin, they do not pick at your body hair and feel invisible once you start riding on your bike.  The elastic on the legs are luxury Italian knitted materials that function to keep the shorts in place when your ride.  The legs stay in place and do not move while actively riding on long rides.   The top stitching of the leg elastics are with a 3-step zig sag stitch that is stretchable yet perfectly smooth next to the moving skin.  This means they leg elastics are highly functional yet very comfortable. 

To enhance the key performance indicators, we  use all the softest stitching techniques.  The waist elastic on this padded short is one inch wide non-roll.  The waist is coverstitched with a flat, stretchable seam that hold the short at the waist.  The shorts are fairly high in the waist so the back is fully covered in the bent over cycling position.  All of the seams are as soft a they can be so that longer rides can be comfortable. Primary seams are flatlocked with a four needle flatlock stitch that is soft next to your skin.  All of the sewn seams are flat as can be, plus the chamois pad is seamless. 

 

Women's Century Bike Shorts are designed for your comfort on long bicycle rides.

Love these shorts!
December 5, 2016
These shorts fit me perfectly and the pad is the perfect thickness, not so thick it looks ridiculous when walking. Similar to the Pearl Izumi Quest pad, but the waist on those shorts rolls down. This longer waist is perfect, does not roll down, the legs have ample room, the rubber grips are not uncomfortable. They also run true to American sizes. I returned the Xl for a large which fits perfectly (Amazon also has these on Prime, same price with free returns, wish I'd seen that earlier). I am 5'4", 166 lbs with a slightly thicker waist than fanny. I've tried Pearl Izumi, Belroy, Sheebeast and another, these are the best!

So very comfy
October 17, 2016
Not only is the pad great for long rides, but material is different from any other short I've owned; it's delightfully soft. They are my favorites by far.
Pros:
comfort
Best Uses:
All-day rides

Good fit
October 3, 2016
The fit/design is good. The chamois does the job. The only negative for me is the length. I prefer a shorter leg length.
Pros:
Adequate chamois
Cons:
Leg length is too long for me.
Best Uses:
Road cycling

good value shorts
September 20, 2016
Normally, I buy higher priced shorts with thicker padding, but having outgrown my existing supply (oops!), I tried this short. So far, so good. They are comfortable, not "see-through" but perhaps the pad does not fit perfectly. Pad fit is highly personal as everyone knows.
Best Uses:
club rides

Help for fatigued sits bones
July 26, 2016
I bought these shorts because I needed to find a way to be able to ride more than 60 miles without my sits bones screaming at me. I know others ride 100-200 miles at a time, so what made a difference? I read than chamois can make a big difference. I looked for high density foam shorts for more comfort. I found these. I have not tried them yet on a ride longer than 52 miles, but I had no fatigue at 52 miles! That has never happened before. So I am hopeful.
Pros:
Chamois padding is a higher density foam that really helps relieve fatigue on long rides. Fabric is thin and moisture wicking.
Cons:
The stitching was a little stratchy and the leg band was a little stratchy too.
Best Uses:
Long road bike rides.

dont bother
July 7, 2016
I wear XL in all other riding shorts I own so ordered XL in these. Legs are too long and loose. I have to pull them up to keep them from rubbing on my calves.But if I had ordered lg the waist would have been too tight. Padding isnt bad tho.

Quality compressive fabric. Chamios pad placement is anatomically correct.
June 23, 2016
The fabric (XXL) seems to be of good, compressive quality. The chamois is properly placed for cushioned comfort on the saddle. Just short rides so far with okay, not over-the-top, comfort. For longer rides, I still find a second chamois cushion provides relief from "saddle-pressure-injury/soreness" to the female parts. Otherwise, well-made, true-to-size cycling shorts.
Pros:
Compression Pad placement/shape Quality fabric Excellent, supportive fit
Best Uses:
Medium-length rides. Fitness cycling/Spinning

Comfy shorts
April 11, 2016
I've only had a chance to wear them on a 50km cold weather ride. They seem comfortable enough. I was expecting the pad to have been sized up more. Comparing it to an old pair of Pearl Izumis, the pad size seemed quite similar. Great price and quick shipping to Canada.

Wonderful product.
April 6, 2016
This is the second pair of this item my wife has ordered. She finds them very comfortable, they wash well, and they wear well. Notwithstanding frequent washings, her first pair has held up very well including the padding. She hangs them on a special hanger to air dry rather than machine drying. With warmer weather on the way, she wanted this second pair so she would always have a back-up pair to wear.

These shorts worked well on a five day bike ride that I did where we were traveling from hotel to hotel. I washed them out each evening and found that they were dry in the morning. I am 5'10" and 200lbs and bought the 2X. They fitted well.

Not so great for my body shape
March 15, 2016
My first pair of bike shorts, I bought because of the great reviews. While they cushion my bottom, it does nothing for my crotch and in fact make my lady parts more numb. Not sure if it is because they are too big and the padding rides back, but I'd rather ride non-bike shorts.
Pros:
Leg band keeps shorts from riding up, padding is good for the tush.
Cons:
Padding isn't positioned well for my lady parts.
Best Uses:
short rides

My wife is new to cycling and these shorts have made it possible to ride together. Before we got these she could only sit on the seat for 15 minuets before complaining about her seat, now we can have long family rides.
Pros:
great all around shorts thick pad and great fit.
Best Uses:

Great shorts!
December 21, 2015
I have used these numerous times. They are very comfortable and stay put. The pad is great for long rides. My only complaint is the waist is so long I have to roll it down. Wish they came in some cuter colors though.
Pros:
Great design, good pad that isn't too thick. Comfortable even off the bike.
Cons:
Long in the waist, have to roll them down. And kind of expensive for shorts. No other colors!!! Black is boring!!
Best Uses:
Long rides 50+ or short rides, whatever your preference.

Long wearing and equally wonderful
October 11, 2015
I have reviewed products from Aerotech in the past, including these shorts or similar ones. I thought reader might like to know how they stand up with wear. In 2013, I crossed the US by bicycle. As a woman of size (5'7" and 200 pounds") I had a difficult time finding bike shorts that fit well all over. Then I discover Aerotech. On the trip I took two pair of Aerotech shorts and a men's XXL black and yellow jacket -- waterproof with removable sleeves and a hood. All have withstood the test of time. I wore the shorts three days ago on a difficult ride in Acadia National Park. I wear the biking jacket, which easily covers my butt, as a regular jacket. About the only problem I have had with either is a couple of grease spots on the jacket that I have worked hard to remove. I hardly consider this Aerotech's fault. I highly recommend this product. And as advertised their clothing is made in the USA. Or to be more specific just outside Pittsburgh, PA. I have recommend Aerotech to several other distance bikers and will continue to do so in the future.

August 27, 2015
This is my first pair of bike shorts. I looked at so many pairs before deciding on this one. I was worried about finding a pair that would fit comfortably since I'm a plus sized lady. Just followed the sizing chart and they fit great! All without breaking the bank. The fit is great, the legs don't ride up, and the padding is nice and comfy. Pair with some chamois cream and you're good to go for long rides. I wore mine for a 50 mile ride the first week and they were exactly what I needed.
Pros:
Comfy Reasonable Price Range of Sizes
Cons:
None
Best Uses:
Long distance riding

Runs too large
August 17, 2015
These are OK biking pants. They are lower price and so expect an average quality pant. The problem is they were way too big. After reading other reviews I thought I needed to order an extra big size but I think my usual size might have fit. I had to send them back.
