If you’re predominately riding indoors at the moment, how do we put this… you’ve probably noticed that it’s a little hard going in the saddle! Less standing, weight shifting and increased heat and sweating all can mean more pressure, friction and soreness.
Many riders make the mistake when riding inside of reaching for old kit but, especially regarding your bib-shorts, do yourself a favour a treat yourself to some new ones!
Chamois or pads in cycling shorts have fortunately evolved from the days of strips of Chamois Goat leather or even raw steaks shoved down the shorts but quality and performance varies significantly from one manufacturer to the next.
When developing their revolutionary Endurance 3D pad, Kalas not only worked with the world’s leading manufacturer of cycling pads but also, for real world feedback, riders from the Great Britain Cycling Team. The Great Britain Cycling Team have been at the forefront at raising awareness of and actioning on saddle health issues, especially regarding female riders. Also, because the majority of cyclists aren’t gold medal contenders, Kalas sought the feedback of experienced amateur riders too.
To keep you comfortable on your bike, the Endurance 3D pad has a 3D anatomic shape and, because men and women are shaped very differently, so are the pads.
In areas of high pressure, higher density foam is used to give you the support and cushioning where you need it most. Overheating is taken care of by perforations and channels to maximise airflow and sweat is wicked away from the skin.
Based on feedback from the HotChillee Ride Captains, who’ve been kitted out with Endurance 3D pad equipped bib shorts for several years now, they’ll take your riding comfort to the next level.
The HotChillee Essentials and Classic ranges both include the Endurance 3D pad so you can check it out for yourselves!
