The Leg Band is a highly technical combination of two high spandex fabrics laminated to a soft silicone gel lightly spaced for a gentle grip.
Bike Shorts - Won't ride up!
Legs have a soft elastic-free band with a light silicone gel that is incredibly soft and easy to wear. No binding elastic or rubber - yet the short stays in place during long, hard rides. The cuff is gentle on the skin and works perfectly to keep the shorts from riding up with the muscle flex during cycling.
Leg sizes are generous to prevent any type of muffin top appearance. The fabric is very stretchy and feels like a second skin.
How 3M Reflective Material works:
Scotch-lite reflective material products use a technology known as retro-reflection. It helps the eye perceive light in low-light conditions. In more scientific terms, retro reflection occurs when light rays are returned in the direction from which they came. A large amount of reflected light is returned directly to the original light source, such as a car's headlights. Since very little light is scattered when the light is returned, retro reflective materials appear brightest to an observer located near the original light source.
Chamois Pad Information:
Italian Chamois: Elite 4D chamois pad is recommended for endurance. It is engineered and pre-shaped using four levels and densities of pad. The Air Mesh chamois is an ergonomic pad that is a state of art design. Imported from CyTech, an Italian expert. The shape is seamless and highly engineered. Air Gel Mesh inside the pad optimizes the shock impact and absorption, stays dry, does not compress and stays cool. The surface has a Resistex branded carbon fiber that is a knitted, brushed surface that feels soft next the skin.
Two Fabric zones: One, the internal crotch area is a rugged 77% Nylon 23% Spandex for stretch and abrasion resistance between the legs. Two, the outer side panels are constructed with our century fabric that is 83% polyester 17% Lycra.
The Air Gel Chamois:
An ergonomic pad that is a state-of-the-art, highly engineered design!
This chamois pad has a fabric surface from Eschler Bioactive. Eschler is the best of class for high certification standards that guarantee their ability to wick perspiration. Natural antibacterial properties from silver ions in yarn.
The Italian made chamois pad is excellent for long distance road or mountain bike rides. It has a seamless surface design with a three dimensional combination of foams fitted together like a puzzle engineered to absorb road shock and act like a pillow on the saddle. The fit is anatomically designed with a combination of elasticity and density. This pad tested in the excellent category by our product development team. Color: Charcoal
The pad's face has a thin microfiber yarn knitted in three dimensions to cushion. It does not retain moisture and stays dry next to your skin. The Memory Foam is perforated for stretch and breath-ability.
The elite chamois pad can be used with anti-chafe cream if needed, but the way this pad is designed, it is so great at absorbing shock, you won't need much chamois cream except for the longest, hottest days. Gender specific pads optimize the performance for a bicycle rider. This pad is for men.

I want to compliment Aero Tech Designs on their Elite bike shorts. They have the most comfortable fit and best gel pad on the market and, I have found them to be incredibly durable. I bought a pair of the Elite bike shorts when training to ride the Northern Tier (Seattle to Maine) and quickly purchased a second pair. I used the two pairs of Elite shorts to train for the Northern Tier, ride the Northern Tier and I have been using them to train for the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route which I will ride this summer with my brother in Law. The two pairs of shorts have over 9,000 miles split between them- the gel pads still feels great and the spandex is just now getting thin in a couple of places! Thanks again for an American made product of exceptional quality and durability- Dave Lofquist
