Top Shelf Chamois Pad

Top Shelf pad is an anatomically designed pad for the bike riding position. The Multi-Level Pad M.L.P uses multi-level production technology and Multiple Layered Foams to improve comfort by relieving the pressure points between the body and the bicycle saddle.

What makes this pad special? It is the fantastic fit that comes from a highly engineered design that fits all the curves that we have between the legs and around the body's pelvic area. The side wings on this pad offer up excellent fit around your legs and torso. This excellent fit is not available with one piece pads.

The M.L.P (Multi-Level Pad) uses multi-level production technology to improve comfort by relieving the pressure points between the body and the bicycle saddle. The new pad system incorporates the long established Hygienic fabric.

Chamois has a Layered, Puzzle Construction

The new pad system incorporates the log established Hygienic fabric. The a new generation of cycling seat pads made of polyester microfibers.The 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 long distances.

    good fit, edges of chamois noticeable

    Published by Alyson Budd on Aug 3rd 2017

    the edges of the cham are noticeable as you ride, maybe they could be sewed down better. When I compare to other chamois it has a thinner zigzag stitch holding it on. A denser stitch would make it more comfortable.

    I got this to match the jersey and the colour of the shorts is less saturated (more pastel).

    Good overall bike shorts

    Published by Cynthia on Feb 7th 2017

    Love the fit, the color the fabric. The bike pad thickness. The only thing I don't like is on the corners of the seat of the butt pad it's pointed. And where it's sewed down for whatever reason, that section reaches down to my thigh (I believe it's supposed to, to prevent chafe from seat rubbing). However, it kind of does just the opposite. Because it's a point and not rounded it just rubs me the wrong way when I'm out for many miles. (20+). I've taken to wearing a neoprene pair of shorts underneath, solves the problem, but you know, I shouldn't have to do that. And this isn't the only pair of shorts with this type of pad that I've owned from ATD that has done this. So it's definitely something in the design and how it fits me. Others may not have a problem at all. Overall, good shorts! Breathable, comfortable, lovely to wear. I do like them very much. Love the print!

    Beautiful Knicks - design and fit!

    Published by Mary on Aug 6th 2016

    Very well made with good attention to detail! These Knicks are a lovely fabric and feel great to wear. I'm a bit uncertain about the pad... Wore on a 20km ride and noticed it wasn't as thick/protective as those I usually sit on. Still, I love the look and will train myself to get used to a thinner pad!! - vanity... !!

    Love it!

    Published by Sandy on Jul 4th 2016

    Love everything about these shorts. Most of my tops match all the vibrant colors. The shorts look better on. They launder well and do not slide up. Thank you.

    Love Them

    Published by Vickie on Jun 8th 2016

    Very comfortable and fit perfectly. I took advice and ordered a size smaller than I normally would. Love the flat waistband in the front!

    Great Fit & Comfortable!

    Published by Brenda on Jun 8th 2016

    I love these bike shorts! They fit perfectly and are incredibly comfortable. I wear a size 20-24 Jean depending where I buy them, and ordered the 2X shorts. They are a perfect fit with just the right amount of compression. The padding is amazing! Not bulky, and no pinch points. I have no issues with either the waist or the bands on the legs rolling up as I ride. These are honestly THE most comfortable bike shorts I've ever owned. Years ago, before I put on so much weight, I used to buy Perfomance gel shorts. These shorts out perform them in every way. I don't feel like, or look like I'm carrying a load in my pants because of the padding. I highly recommend these shorts!

    Prettier than the picture.

    Published by Barb on Jun 3rd 2016

    Very thin leg fabric for good air. A gripping band at the bottom of each leg to prevent ride up. Good bum padding. Comes up to the navel for secure coverage. Small fits true but has lots of stretch.

    Bright and tight

    Published by Tegan on Apr 9th 2016

    Love the pattern (no one can possibly claim "didn't see you")
    Because of the leg bands in particular, if you're on a border between sizes, I'd suggest the larger! Great shorts!

    Great bike shorts

    Published by Jan on Apr 1st 2016

    I am loving these shorts. As a large rider it is hard for me to find bike shorts. There was only one other place I have gotten them before that I liked, but these were a hit right off the bat! Thank you!
