With a Long Distance Chamois Pad

Aero Tech Designs presents this Top Shelf Pro Bike Short with a thicker denser pad for long distance cycling. This padded cycling short is an eight-panel, anatomically designed bicycle short that hugs the muscles for support and reduction of muscle fatigue. Bike Shorts prevent chafing by eliminating seams between the legs.

The smooth inner leg reduces opportunity for abrasion and saddle sores. These shorts keep you comfortable and dry with high quality fabric that absorbs perspiration. Gripper leg elastic is soft, an keeps the shorts in place during long rides. Smooth, seamless inner leg reduces opportunity for abrasion and sores

Fabric is very durable at 8 ounce, with nylon and spandex. The tricot knit fabric has four way stretch and is cut cross grain for maximum stretch and support. The waist is a soft, 3/4 inch non-roll elastic. The leg grippers prevent bunching up at the crotch area and are very smooth, comfortable.

Why Compression?Made in the USA

  • Compression creates surface pressure which accelerates blood flow
  • Reduces lactic acid build up
  • Increases oxygen delivery to working muscles enhancing circulation
  • Easier recovery from exercise (reduces delayed onset soreness)
  • Prevents chafing and rub areas

Legs stay in place during exercise with gentle silicone gripper.  There will be no tugging at your shorts to keep them down.

Aero Tech Designs makes this top shelf shorts in the United States, using American Fabric and Labor. It has a M.L.P. Multi-Level Pad with 3D molded construction to eliminate friction and add extra padding to the pressure areas in the seat. The crotch pad has smooth edges and wraps the body curves between the legs. It is hygienic antibacterial Coolmax that stays dry and inhibits the growth of bacteria.

Pad Thickness: 10MM in saddle area, 5mm on sides with an Anatomical design for riding position: ergonomic concepts were employed for the design of this chamois pad that surrounds the crotch area to eliminate chafe and absorb shock. The compression fabric hugs the muscles for support and reduction of muscle fatigue. The Multi Level Pad M.L.P. is a new generation of cycling seat pad made of polyester microfibers. The M.L.P. uses multi level production technology to improve comfort by relieving the pressure points between the body and the bicycle saddle.

    Cycling Bike Short

    Posted by Not Available on Mar 9th 2018

    This is my second purchase from Aero Tech. Superior quality, last long, very satisfied. I am a big/tall guy (6.7, 290 lbs) and it is not always easy to find big enough clothes.

    One Happy Clydesdale

    I am very happy to have found a quality pair of bike shorts in a 3XL. They fit nicely, do not chaff, and allow me to ride for over an hour without discomfort. Their customer service is spot on as well.

    They are what they are?

    Posted by Christopher M on May 17th 2017

    Are they quality? Yes... We're they what I was looking for, well no. I admit that cycling is a thin mans game. So to have a company make oversized biker shorts with issuing was awesome. But argh they ironically don't fit right, the waist keeps slowly dropping and the legs keep riding into the crotch. It wants to become a man kinni.

    I received these shorts on Thursday. Sunday was my first ride with them. Not to tight anywhere. The padding was a heck of a lot better than the first pair of shorts I got somewhere else. So comfortable, Sunday was my first ride over 20 miles! I am 5'8 at 355 lbs

    Low front rise, but otherwise great product

    Posted by Robert Den on Aug 29th 2016

    Front rise is very low but very good shorts. I'm only 6' tall but will have to try tall size next time.

    Nice shorts but don't let them near velcro

    Posted by Eric on Jul 27th 2016

    It took several tries to find the pair that fit me. These did, despite my waist being several inches larger than the size chart said for a 3XLT.

    For the typical saddle found on road bikes, these are probably the best padded cycling shorts I’ve seen to date. A long ride for me is 30 to 40 miles. (OK…so I’m OLD. I don’t do century rides) My rear end feels in the same good shape after the ride as it did before the ride.

    great shorts for bigger guy

    Posted by John C on May 3rd 2016

    I have just recently purchased a larger size in the Big Mans padded cycling bike shorts from Aerotech. The product I received was a perfect fit to the sizing and an absolutely brilliant cycle short for quality and comfort. I have never bothered to write a review before, but I am honestly so impressed and happy with my experience, I had to pass on an acknowledgment. In fact I just ordered a second pair. I wish I'd found this site ten years ago when I started to put on a bit of weight.

    Live in Australia and big bike pants are hard to get. These fit perfectly and ride great. The sizing chart is spot on too. Very happy Aussie.
