Century Fabric was developed for cycling!

The Men's 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.

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 slick 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.

gripper elastic on apparel

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. 

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

Excellent padding
September 22, 2016
These shorts are confotable and provide proper padding. I did a short 23 miles trip on my road bike and did not feel any major discomfort. I should mention that sizes run on the large side. I am 5'-9", 160 lbs and 32" waist. I typically order a size medium. These were too large. Ordered a small and it fit perfectly. I am returning the medium and ordering a second pair in small.

ideal short for long rides
August 23, 2016
Bought these shorts just prior to my first century ride after spending lots of time in the saddle getting into shape. As I did longer and long rides I found none of my cycling shorts were comfortable on long rides. The century shorts with the butt pillow were amazing and I not only survived my 109 mile ride in comfort but I rode 86 the next day without any soreness. Highly recommend anyone doing longer rides to give them a try you won't be disappointed.

Worry-free shorts
August 11, 2016
I have now done a few rides wearing the men's Century cycling shorts. The shorts fit me very well (my waist measurement is at the upper end of the range for the size I bought), and I like the materials. The first pair I received was missing some stitches; though it was not a serious problem, Aero Tech practically insisted on replacing them, which they now have done. The padding is thicker than I consider ideal, noticeable when walking, plus the padding extends a couple of inches farther up in front than any part of me which could press against the saddle. However soon after I start riding, I no longer notice the shorts at all, which I think is about the most one can ask. There are other models with different padding that I will want to investigate, but I feel I can be confident in ordering from Aero Tech again.
Best Uses:
Road cycling of any distance

Exceptional quality, fit, and padding
July 12, 2016
After years of weight lifting, then age and sedentary lifestyle, I needed larger, padded bicycle shorts to compliment my return to a healthier lifestyle. I tried several kinds until I came upon aero tech. There is no comparison, all others have fallen short! (Nip unintended)
Best Uses:
Four to five says per week cycling, buy multiple pairs!

Century Cycling shorts
June 21, 2016
They are the most comfortable shorts I've worn so far. I'm 6'3" 210 lbs and size large is about right for me. The padding is a bit wider than most. and keeps the soft body parts from getting a beating on the nose of the saddle.
Pros:
priced right and fit is good
Cons:
none
Best Uses:
Any long ride

Repeat Purchase
January 14, 2016
Tall, avid, cyclist - commuting, recreational rides, and touring. These shorts work very well for me. I am glad I found them after a prior manufacturer discontinued consistent sizing. They have good length and good snug fit to me. They wear well and so I purchased two more shorts to get me ready for late Winter - early Spring riding. They preform well and comfortably when I do long rides on summer weekends. I am a satisfied customer and recommend them because I will buy them again, too.
Pros:
Fit and durability (and therefore good value)
Best Uses:
commuting, recreational rides, and touring.

3 hour tour
August 25, 2015
I don't ride more than once or twice a week, I bought these at the same time as buying a new bike. With the stock seat I was comfortable for the first 3 hours of the ride was comfortable. I since replaced the seat and found I was comfortable for 3.5 hours. Therefore these are my 3 hour tour shorts for now, I'm a big guy weighing in at around 290 and I ride in the seat all of the time. The compression by the fabric was very comfortable and did not stop me from running errands after riding.

Bulky padding but effective, I guess
July 10, 2015
I bought these to wear on RAGBRAI. My previous cycling shorts have had dense felt padding and I thought that a gell padding might be better on the 50-75 mile days. These are comfortable but I notice my nether parts going to sleep within the first 10 miles. I've tried sliding the padding around to improve its cushioning and that seems to work most of the time. I think these would be better as bib shorts because there's no way to keep the advertised "butt pillow" under your butt if you're moving around on the saddle. The padding bulges up in front of my groin and I have to keep pushing it back or standing and then scooting my butt from front to back on the seat to improve positioning. I am 245 pounds, 6'4" 60+ years old male and ride a Selle Anatomica saddle. Perhaps if I lose another 10 pounds these shorts will work better but that's not really the point, is it?

Butt savers...
April 7, 2015
I got two pairs of the Century bike shorts in the 3X. I wear a 42" waist. I just completed the BP MS150 in them (82 miles the first day 68 miles the second day) and they were great. No butt pain after I finished my thighs were pretty sore for 3 days though... If you like a tight fit you may want to get one size smaller. The shorts themselves are pretty stretchy and a little thinner than the shor

Great for centuries
April 7, 2015
I developed a rash however I rode 304 miles|in four days. Not too sure if it was the pants or the lengthy hot and sweaty ride. The first two days I experienced no problems. Rash began on the third day. They wash well and hang dry fairly quickly. Pants felt comfortable when I rode 82 miles and a century the next day. I used Chamois Butt and Boudreaux Butt Paste as lubricants.
