From your first ride/run training block in this short you’ll recognize that we have a lot of experience with shorts. We engineered a new seat pad for this short, and we’ve actually machined away the padding from the places where you don’t need it, leaving just the right amount of padding in the perineum and ischial bone areas.
Nothing extra to bother you during the run or swim. By eliminating all the foam from the non-essential areas of the pad, we were able to make a slightly larger pad and move the stitching farther away from the crotch so you have less chafing during the ride and the run. For the run, we’ve placed a liner on the front that helps hold the package in place, something you’ll appreciate if you’ve ever run with an unsupportive Lycra® short. Body Paint technology lets us knit the gripper elastic directly into the fabric around the leg so everything lies flat and gently grips without binding.
