Aero Tech Designs CyclewearBlack Pearl Premium Chamois Pad

black pearl chamois padThe 4-piece unisex Black Pearl replacement pad

The Black Pearl Crotch pad is made of a dense, long lasting foam for anti-shock and comfort. This shock absorbing cellular urethane is designed to absorb shock for the life of the short. It is breathable in that it lets water vapor and perspiration move away from the body. This pad resists abrasion, is smooth and wrinkle free. The black pearl will not change its properties with usage and will not harden or soften with use. The pad's cells are "open cell structure" which allow water transportation while maintaining its ability to absorb shock without bottoming out. Color: Black

Just not the same
I'm a larger size mountain biker and Aerotech Designs is one of the few places I can buy shorts.Untill recently there was a much better selection of styles and choices and sizes.The shorts I just purchased seem cheaply made.Real thin material and liners with less padding.The pockets are now pretty useless and I find myself not using them anymore.The fit is still pretty good but I'm now searching for another source to get my shorts.I hope they can offer up a few more options like there used to be.

Great Fit
Very pleased with the shorts I purchased, great fit when on or off the bike. A few more colours in the " Big Arse" range would be nice but I'm happy that someone caters for the bigger blokes of this world.

Details matter
Drawstring was not tied off or secured, I was unaware of this and when I pulled open the shorts one side of the drawstring was caught inside the shorts. I spent 39 minutes trying to fish the drawstring out

Ride Well

Great shorts for mountain biking and the larger body
Really good shorts - great balance between material toughness and lightness for longevity and comfort when it's hot out. Good secure pockets for a lift pass or similar and the chamois is comfortable and supportive without feeling like you are wearing a diaper. Got the black and grey and might yet get the blue colourway. All good with a range of clothing options. Also must mention excellent service from Aerotech and relatively quick delivery to Scotland. The only addition I have made is a set of oxford motorcycling braces to hold them up and in place which works like a treat - might be a modification that aerotech could make some time in the future! Just to note my size for reference - 48" waist, 5'7", 29" inseam. The length of the shorts is likely to fit someone from my size to a longer legged individual (33" inseam at a guess).

too long for an aggressive ride
I am a fairly large guy. I ride mtn bikes. I bought these and liked the quality and fit. But on an aggressive where you are out of the saddle a lot they are two long they can get under you knee and when you sit back on the saddle they have shifted and thus are no longer where you and your body parts need them to be. It takes time to reset them happens every time your out of the saddle. They need to be shorted.
Prosgood pad when it is in place
Constoo long interferes with pedaling
Best Usesslow easy rides to dinner.

Aero Tech Big Men's Aero Tech Cargo Short Padded for Bicycling
I'm short, 5' - 8*, and built like a barrel so the size of the shorts and their roominess works for me. Two things though...I wish ALL clothing manufacturers realized that not only are there Big and Tall people but Big and Short people. Wish they offered a variety of inseam lengths. The shorts come mid calf on me so I've had to have the lengths altered to knee level at additional expense. Also, it would be nice if the rear waist was cut higher so when bending over the handlebars the shorts weren't always sliding down. I'm constantly pulling them up. But I do like them. Had two pairs before and purchased two more.

Great short
Glad to find shorts like this with padding in size 50. Fit is good but wish the inseam was a little shorter to bring pad up a little higher. But otherwise a great short for the riding I do!

Great biking shorts!
This was my second time buying the same shorts, and they are of the same, great quality as my first purchase! Please note that in my case, they run a full size smaller. So, you 1X folks should go; 2X!

Great shorts and super fast shipping
After reading reviews about the shorts running small to size, I ordered one size up and perfect fit. Aero tech was super fast to ship these out and they are perfect. Let's just say I don't look good in Spandex so this is a nice casual option while still protecting my bum.
ProsPadding, casual style
ConsSize runs small but OK if you adjust upward (considering big and tall options are scarce in athletic wear).
Best UsesBicycling, casual wear.

Padding on the inside and casual on the outside
These are great to wear if you are headed somewhere after bike riding. The spandex and padding insert is connected so you still have the athletic part of the shorts. The casual shorts are in a dry fit material. Perfect for meeting friends for lunch or running errands after riding.

Padded Cargo Shorts
Shorts seem to run small in size, so I bought one size larger and not only do they fit fine. They work well and are very comfortable. I will be buying more.
ProsFit well and are very comfortable
ConsAreo Tech Size chart is off by one size. Bought a 4X and found them to be tight, bought the 5X and found they fit.

Good quality ... off sizing
Shorts are great ... padding is great. Comfortable and functional. Cargo (side of leg) pockets are the ONLY pockets so be sure you are ok with that, and ATD's sizing on these is way off. I'm 6', 340 lbs ... admittedly way overweight but I have a lot of muscle in the legs, chest and shoulders so I'm proportioned differently than the numbers would indicate. I comfortably wear a 3x in underwear and basketball shorts (actually "normal" 3x is a touch big on me), but the 5x size in these shorts fit me perfectly. All that weight on a bicycle seat? These shorts make it comfortable. The padding is more than adequate to keep you from feeling like the seat is cutting you in half.

Excellent cargo short, just buy larger than you normally wear...
I am a 3XL shorts in the non-bike world at a 48" waist, but the 5XL of these shorts fits me PERFECT! They were instantly the most comfy cargo bike short I have had, no lie... They are quality made, feel very sturdy, the materials are durable-feeling, and the padding is just right, not looking like a diaper underneath when walking around off the bike. I am going to buy more of these every time they go on sale. These are seriously my candidate for best ATB bike short for BIG MEN who don't wear tights. Very pleased!
ProsComfy from the first use! Just the right amount of padding for ATB & city/urban use. Very durable-feeling materials.
ConsWould still like a traditional front pocket for wallet when off the bike...
Best UsesATB, city/urban, and when you need to walk around without looking like you have a diaper under your shorts...
