CyTech (pad designers) states that a great pad will have these features: WELL-BALANCED ELASTICITY -
It should have elasticity that adapts to the shorts fabric and to the movement of the cyclist. VARIED DENSITY -
It should have different densities to provide different levels of protection and support for different areas of the body. CORRECT POSITIONING -
The different densities and thicknesses need to be correctly positioned according to precise anthropometric parameters. VARIED STRUCTURES -
Different shapes for men and women cyclists because of the different conformation of their perineal and genital-urinary areas. ANATOMIC DESIGN -
The design should allow the bikepad to adapt to the cyclist's anatomy and guarantee maximum protection during movement.
