The core of a good pair of cycling shorts and bib shorts is the padding, or chamois as it is sometimes called.

Chamois used to be real leather chamois but times have changed and with developments in fabric technology, the new range of microfibre materials are more comfortable, harder wearing and require less care than traditional chamois.

SLICK has a special padding insert, specially made for the company in Italy, which has a layer of perforated closed-cell foam. You may ask why closed cell?  Closed cell foams do not absorb water (sweat) so they do not saturate like normal open-cell foams do - think of a sponge - that is open cell. Another key advantage of closed-cell is they offer better cushioning from a thinner layer. Open cell foams rely on their cellular structure of the plastic material they are made from - so to offer any relevant cushioning they have to be thick.  Thick pads chafe in areas where you are not sitting on them, so open cell is not good.

My shorts have gel in them we hear you saying.  Well yes closed-cell foams feel like gels BUT you cannot perforate a gel otherwise it will all leak out. By perforating the foam, it breathes, whatever the conditions...so, closed cell foams are the best material to use as the core cushioning medium.

Then there is the fabric covering, the stuff that's in contact with your sensitive parts - SLICK utilises an Eschler (a Swiss company) fabric that has silver ion treatment and is called Hygienic. The fabric has a plush soft feeling, draws away mositure and keeps the possibility of chafing and saddle sores to an absolute minimum.

Still not convinced? Well from our $50 entry level shorts right up to the $300 top of the range, 'seam welded' bibs, we use THE SAME chamois pad....Yep!....What do you have to lose, try them out.
