Men's 6 Panel Gel Padded Cycling Shorts


Aero Tech Designs gel padded chamoismade in usaGet the comfort you have been looking for on your bike rides. Nice and Thick gel chamois pad is nearly 15 mm thick. Soft gel iserts embedded into the foam padding. Perforation throughout the pad for breathability. The Fabric is a high quality nylon/lycra that moves in all directions. Soft stretchy seams form to the cycling position giving great freedom of movement and comfort. The chamois pad has a coolmax surface which wicks perspiration and keeps the padding coold and dry. The legs have a silicone gripper elastic to keep legs in place without riding up.

This thick gel chamois pad was engineered for comfort and shock absorbtion. It has a thick pillow like design for cushioning the bones that sit on a hard surface.

There are cutouts and grooves which are a part of the engineering for airflow and comfort. The surface is a highly wicking coolmax polyester fabric that is cottony soft.

Great padding
September 15, 2016
I purchased these because I was getting sore sit bones after a few miles. I spoke with their tech in customer service and he described their different pads. I opted for these because of the pad thickness and it being a gel pad. These are a big difference over my previous aero tech shorts with the non gel pad. Only reason for not giving 5 stars is the shorts don't have flat seams and not quite the cut of their more expensive shorts. He explained that to me so I knew what I was getting. Now I wish I could get this pad in the higher end shorts.
Pros:
Good pad. Light weight material. Low price.
Cons:
No flat seams. Not as many panels as their other shorts
Best Uses:
Road bike

Gel
September 14, 2016
I have always preferred the traditional padded shorts, but decided to tryout the gel, as I'm riding a lot more miles. Way more comfortable on the butt, I was expecting to get more chaffing with the gel, but to my surprise none of that has happened so that's a huge plus. And at the price you can't go wrong.
Pros:
Gel pad is Awesome compared to traditional padding.
Cons:
Not enough frontal cover.

Enough padding for a big guy...
July 23, 2016
I am 6'4 and 240 and I bought both the "Lightweight Pad 8 Panels" shorts and these and ended up returning the lightweight and getting another of the 6 panel gel shorts. I have tried 3 different biking shorts and this one is the best. I now have two pairs so I can ride multiple days without a ton of laundry. Highly recommended for big guys.

Pad is really thick, but doesn't seem to be a problem.
July 20, 2016
I ride a lot, usually wearing shorts with a fairly thin gel or fake chamois pad. I didn't expect these to have such a THICK pad. I thought about returning them for something else, but decided to give them a try. I frequently do 40-60 mile rides, with a few centuries thrown in. I haven't felt a lot of discomfort before but decided some extra padding might help on the long rides. Today I used the shorts on a quick 18 mi lunch ride. The pad feels thick when you put the shorts on. Too thick. Not necessarily uncomfortable, but awkward. Made me self-conscious. Yes, I get the irony there. Anyway, once I got on the bike the padding felt fine. Definitely more than I'm used to, but not at all uncomfortable. After the first mile or so I forgot all about it. Had a great ride and didn't feel any resistance or bunching while pedaling. Overall, I am satisfied with these. Materials and construction are great and they feel like they will last. Fit was right in line with my other shorts. I would probably go with a thinner pad in the future, but maybe that opinion will change after a long ride.
Pros:
Thick padding. Good materials and construction.
Cons:
Thick padding.

Does not feel like gel
June 16, 2016
The shorts are comfortable and they are padded, but the padding does not feel like a true gel, it feels more like open cell foam. If you pinch the material between your fingers, you can feel you fingertips. It takes very little effort to completely compress the material to the point where there is basically no padding at all. A true gel material will not do this. You have to pinch it very hard to displace the gel material and that will usually cause it to tear internally. They are, however, comfortable and functional, just not the type of gel I was expecting.

I like the thick pad , helps not getting sore as much. The fit is okay , i would get a size smaller next time, For the price its a great buy. Easy to wash. I did ask a lot of question before my purchase and got a lot of info regarding all the different kind of shorts. I picked this one for a. the great price and b. the thickness of the pad.

My first pair of bike shorts
November 16, 2015
OK, so I admit I have nothing to compare with, but I really like these shorts. The padding is thick and they are comfortable. I am a big guy 3XL, and since i got them I have been able to increase my riding time without too much discomfort "down there".
Pros:
Good fit. thick padding for "down there" comfort.
Cons:
None really

Padding in front.

The padding in the front needs to cover more.. No need to show off male physiology to the whole world.

Not for motorcycles
September 15, 2015
I bought these to pad my butt bones on long trips on a dual purpose motorcycle, but found that the padding is not wide enough or dense enough to do the trick. For my butt (I am 6'1", 190 pounds) the padding needs to be another 2 inches wider. I'll buy an Air Hawk for the seat instead.
Pros:
Nice fit, look good.
Cons:
the padding is insufficient and when walking feels like I have crapped my pants. But I guess they all do.

Legs are VERY loose
August 3, 2015
I had read the reviews of these shorts and they sounded good. I did see the other customers review regarding the loose legs, but thought perhaps it was his building, but when I received mine, the legs were very loose, almost not touching my legs. The shorts felt comfortable for the price but unless you have huge upper legs, the shorts will ride up. Also, the chamois pad is such that you look like you have a diaper on. I immediately sent them back and ordered the Premier shorts instead, MUCH better but much more money, but worth it.
Cons:
Loose leg bands and chamois pad to stiff.

Shorts vs Mesh Shorts
July 7, 2015
Hey all, I purchased these cycling shorts to supplement the mesh pair I purchased a year ago. The mesh are great, but I was looking for something with a little more padding, which these shorts provide. Much warmer than the mesh but that's to be expected. The silicone on the bottom seems to keep the shorts where they should be, these shorts help on longer rides. I have worn them under normal gym shorts to hide the "spandex look". For the price I would recommend these, much more padding than the mesh. Would appreciate if a mesh pair with more padding was available.
Pros:
Much more padding than the mesh shorts they offer. Short stays where it should.
Cons:
Tad warmer than mesh, hot in warmer weather but too be expected.
