Which Cycling Chamois Pad is Right for Me?
Choosing a chamois is a personal choice and we want to emphasize that neither the Veloce/DonnaForte or Granfondo pad is “better” than the other. We offer only the finest Italian pads so both models are of the highest quality. If you prefer a closer feel to the saddle then perhaps the Veloce pad will be more to your liking. If you prefer a chamois with enhanced denser padding then the Granfondo pad might be your choice. If you are still not sure please speak to one of our Custom Apparel Specialists who will be more than happy to explain the features of each pad.
Pista Cycling Pad (for Track/TimeTrial)
Our PISTA chamois was developed specifically for Track/TT in mind. With a gel insert on either side of the chamois nearer to the front, so as to disperse the load, normally associated with riders who race in these disciplines who sit slightly more forward than road specific riders. Made in Italy. Available for men and women. (click image - colour may vary)
CS Performance & Apex Triathlon Pads
The pad that has been worn to victories in races around the world, the CS Performance SCT Pad is a revolutionary, 100%-seamless, multi-density, Italian 4-Way Pad. What truly sets our new pad apart is that it's a stretch pad. That's right — an elastic chamois. Why is this important? As you ride and your legs go round and round, you need a pad that moves and conforms. Traditional pads stay in one place. Ours doesn't. The first time you ride in our stretch 4-Way Pad — you will immediately feel the difference! Our 4-Way Pad is BIOAKTIV. Unlike other pads that are labeled as "antibacterial," our pad uses no chemical substance on the fabric, and no chemical substance is near your skin. BIOAKTIV prevents the formation of bacteria, thanks to silver ions in the yarn. Unlike a chemical substance on the fabric, this is permanent; it does not disappear after washing! Made in Italy. Available for men and women.
The CS Apex Pad is specifically designed for triathlon and features increased padding in the most critical areas to provide hours of comfort. Our exclusive Seamless Comfort Technology (SCT) ensures the pad will conform to your body by eliminating all seams while still offering maximum breathability. Available for men and women. Made in Italy.
