The Importance of cycling padding to maximise performance and comfort
Good quality cycling padding plays a crucial role in any successful riding experience. From ensuring safety and protection, to avoiding common discomforts, to enhancing a cyclist’s overall performance, cycling padding is the unsung hero on those long and rewarding outings.
Our Italian padding, or [ chamois ] designed and manufactured in Europe can be found in our current PATIENTA range and significantly reduces friction between you and your saddle. Over the years, this vital garment has evolved from being made from a piece of chamois or sheepskin to synthetic, anti-bacterial, and high-performance materials that offer better absorption and comfort. Here at redbros we brought on the help of leading European manufactures that boast a strong historic presence in major world brands and teams, and whom have developed the latest market leading chamois to protect your undercarriage when out of the bike.
Quality Comfort Matters
Quality effectively translates to comfort in cycling. You don’t need a data analyst to tell you that. A good quality chamois is going to help you go further for longer with less discomfort. Unlike regular shorts, our Italian padding offers riders essential cushioning between their bodies and the saddle. The padding evenly distributes the pressure exerted on the perineal region throughout the ride, reducing nerve compression and preventing the risk of incurring saddle sores or more severe conditions like perineal nodular induration or ‘cyclist’s nodule.’
Different densities and thicknesses cater to varied cycling practices; mountain bikers often prefer thicker padding to absorb rougher terrain impacts, while road cyclists lean towards thinner, dense padding for longer, smoother rides. Our Italian padding has been cross-designed to offer an all-round performing padding for all distances and terrain.
Even More: Body Conforming and Moisture-Wicking
Top-notch cycling padding isn’t merely about relieving pressure; it’s also about conforming to your unique anatomical shape. Our Italian pad adapts and moves as you ride, ensuring a snug fit without unnecessary bunching or shifting that could lead to chafing.
Plus, their moisture-wicking feature is a gamechanger. Modern materials draw sweat away from your skin, helping maintain optimum body temperature and keeping you fresher for longer. #youarebike
