Aero Tech Designs Bike Clothing Men's Summer Shadow Cycle Shorts

Ride Longer.  Feel Stronger.

3M Scotchlite Reflective Material

Highly Reflective Retro-Reflection from 3M Scotchlite

Enhance your summer shadow with 3M Reflectivity. This high end reflective material uses scientifically engineered and coated glass beads that take light from the source and reflect it back at the same level and direction that it came from. This is important for motorists who are driving because the light will be reflected back to them at the same level rather than be scattered when it bounces back. In other words, 3M reflective material does not create light but rather borrows the light waves and reflects it back. The luminosity, or power, of the bounce back is brighter with the 3M material because its glass beads are all lined up precisely in a grid to catch all angles of light and reflect them back at the same angle. There is very little dispersion or "scattering" of the reflective light waves.

 

 

 

Feel more joy and comfort when you ride with a pair of padded bicycle shorts.  Long periods on the saddle are relieved with this Summer Shadow cycle short.  It has the most updated chamois pad technology to provide breathability and coolness combined with a dense supportive ischial bone pad. The leg bands are lightweight and feel invisible yet function as needed to keep the shorts in place without movement during cycling action, primarily your pedal stroke. The waistline features a wider one inch non roll band. The chamois pad is our Top Shelf chamois that is sewn precisely where needed for shock absorption and prevention of chafing. Like all of our apparel, these bike shorts are unconditionally guaranteed.

The fabric's 23% Spandex gives up unlimited compressive support which holds the stomach and legs to reduce vibration and movement while riding.  The compression in these bike shorts work to reduce lactic acid buildup by helping to increase the oxygen going to the muscles. The principle goal behind good compression is muscle support.  During exercise, small micro tears occur in your muscle tissue and the repair process is what makes us stronger with exertion.  With good compression, the blood that flows to the muscles is increased.  Fresh blood circulation helps to reduce the buildup of lactic acid, while keeping muscles fueled with oxygen to produce energy for your workouts. 

The fabric was developed specially for the rigors of the cycling motion to offer up compressive support during exercise and to reduce vibration and enhance blood flow.  It is 77% Nylon/23% Spandex which provides different levels of compression to wrap and support active muscles.  The compression helps to increase blood flow to your muscles to supply fresh oxygen and nutrients. 

men's top shelf chamois padchamois is 10MM thickThe chamois pad is engineered across the ischial bones so that you can ride a long distance.  The Top Shelf long distance chamois pad is 10 MM thick in saddle sit bones area. The best fitting chamois on earth - there is no other pad that will fit into your crotch curves better than this highly designed and engineered chamois pad. 

The bike short has a MLP (multi-level-pad) that is 3D engineered for effective support of the key sit bones.  The keenly designed shape eliminates chafing and smooths out the crotch area for maximum comfort on long bicycle rides.  We recommend you grease up the pad with an anti-chafe cream when riding more than 25 miles. 

See our anti-chafe cream selection for lots of choices.

chamois pad thickness and density

Schoeller fabrics create a durable yet soft fabric face for this high end chamois pad.   It has a durability that enhances the garment for high usage.  The chamois provides excellent comfort to eliminate chafe areas because of the thin, sewn arms that wrap around the inner thighs to snug up next to the skin.  The foams are multiple types laminated for shock absorbing properties that enhance the padding under the ischial bones on the but.  This pad is perforated for excellent vapor transportation that wicks away sweat and moisture from the skin.

Great visibility and padding
October 10, 2016
I had to return the first pair because my usual size, which is large for shorts, was way too tight. The XL fits much better and the padding seems great for longer rides. The yellow/green is good for being seen.
Pros:
Bright color and reflective elements
Cons:
Not fit to true size. You might want to order the next larger size than your normal shorts fit.

First pair in 30 years
March 19, 2016
Finally got back into riding after 30 years and Shorts definitely have changed since then. Put in nearly 400 miles in past few weeks of varying ride lengths, most being 68 miles, and overall pretty comfortable.
Pros:
The fact that they do not ride up because of the band at bottom.
Cons:
None at this point.

Not made to last.
December 15, 2015
Have had several pairs of these shorts and found they do not withstand frequent and distance use. Living in Mexico and riding all year round, they do not seem to hold up well in the heat - wearing out in the rear above the pad and the pad flattens quickly. No longer will purchase these which I wish I didn't have to stop as they are perfect color match with my bike. Also the matching tri-top also wears out quickly.
Cons:
Wear out too quickly for serious riders.

Have bought cheaper shorts from Aerotech. They where okay. These are so much better, and much more comfortable. Can't go wrong with this style short. Price is good too.

Though these use the same chamois as the Top Shelf I find that I prefer the fit and comfort of the Summer Shadow. Really nice for the majority of my rides and the price can't be beat.

These are great for long distance riding
April 7, 2015
I bought these shorts specifically because they were advertised as long distance shorts. My rides are usually between 50 and 100 miles and my other shorts caused chafing and simply didn't allow for a comfortable long distance ride. I've now used these shorts for distances of 72 40 and 15 miles and they are very comfortable throughout the ride.|I plan to order more pairs very soon.

Summer Shadow Shorts
April 7, 2015
I've been wearing Aero Tech's Black Pearls for a few years and though I really like them I wanted to try the SS shorts since they have a higher lycra content although I doubt there are any cool-riding shorts when the weather turns tropical.||After about 8-9 rides with the Summer Shadows I've found a new favorite. I like them for the shorter inseam length and the way the panels are cut. The refl

Nice pair of shorts
February 24, 2015
Nice fitting shorts that seem to be very comfortable. Seems well made but I can not comment on it's durability as I have only worn them once so far but it was a 216 mile ride and I suffered no rubbing or chafing. And was able to ride the next day without any discomfort. The only thing I would change is more reflective accents. While it already has more reflective trim than any of my other shorts I

pants are light weight for summer riding very vivid colors which I had desired, but most importantly does not slide on or bind to saddle.
