I make my own bike shorts and have never been able to make comfortable padding. I tried these and I love them! I've done two 20-mile rides since I put these in a pair of shorts and I have not been this comfortable in a very long time. I've ordered a couple more. Definitely worth the cost. Installation in an existing pair of shorts is a little tricky but if you're careful you'll be fine. I pinned mine with safety pins and then zigzagged from the inside (on the edge of the pad). Done!
I used to pad protective pants for my dog, to enable a pressure wound to heal. Cut it in half and sewed it around opening for tail.
This pad is alot more comfortable than the butt pillow pad . It's wider and I think that really helps
I am returning this item.. the quality is extremely poor!
This chamois is a great replacement for the OEM chamois in my Castelli cold weather long tights. The OEM one didn't cover my "sit" bones when in a relaxed riding position but this one is perfect. My only challenge was I could not find a tailor who had a zig-zag pattern sewing machine. So my tailor used a regular straight line machine and applied 3 parallel lines around the chamois with the 3rd line as close to the edge as possible. This is working out well.
My wife who is an experienced sewer had difficulty understanding the instructions for sewing this pad. She was able to sew another type of pad of aerotech, but not this one. Seems like a nice pad, it will be returned and I will order the elite shorts Its too bad the elite shorts don't come in other colours such as the royal blue in the entry level shorts. The black is too blah and so common
If you attach an elastic loop at the back and a non-elastic loop at the front, you can then sling it from a sanitory-towel belt - after putting a panty liner on it. You can then wear it instead of underwear under any shorts/trousers and it is very easy to wash out and quick to dry. It made 2 weeks of touring (average 50miles/day) with very little 'stuff', possible and hygienic. I have to tug it forwards sometimes - but that's easy enough! It also arrived in the UK really quickly (4 days?). I am very pleased to have discovered these pads.
This was a second pad that I bought from you, this time for my husband. Besides, that I love your product itself,to begin with the, the silly reason that we chose your company over others was, that you sent me that cute key chain bike, and my husband wanted to have it for his keys, too. So, please know that the little bikes are very important to your clients. Now, all my biker friends are asking us where did we got them.
Don't loose this detail. That's how we got hooked on You.
I looked all over for a high qulaity sew-in pad so I could turn what ever I wanted into bike shorts. I'm happy with it and have been meaning to order another one.
Took the pad to a seamstress. Got it back in a few days and they feel like a brand new pair of bib shorts! My favorite pair of very expensive Pearl Izumi bib shorts live again! And you didn't believe in reincarnation")!?
Chamois very comfortable, easy to sew in place. I have not yet rode with it outside, but for spinning class, it is great. Keeps me dry.
I have a pair of wool Protogs from the 70's. I replaced the seat padding and improved my seat time by more than an hour. Great product.
