The Chamois is a high-end road cycling pad. It is the first ever pad to be based on elastic warp-knit fabric with carbon. It is designed for extra long distance rides with an innovative structure featuring a multidirectional curvature that delivers perfect fit and great stability in the saddle. Further, this chamois offers you a special ultra-high density perineal insert (pelvic track), and unmatched ischiatic support that comes in handy to riders that take on a more upright position in the saddle (shifting the pressure more towards the back of the saddle than the front). A specific study on how genitals move during cycling, inspired the development of a special “encased” shaping in the top part of the chamois which allows for improved fit and greater privacy.
JOIN THE EVOLUTION OF SPORTSWEAR
In sports apparel, our use of a garment stands for the 50-70% of total carbon emission. Using an odour-less product more than once before washing drastically reduces the environmental impact of the garment. Water and energy are saved, CO2 is reduced and the amount of microplastics can also be significantly reduced - and it saves your money, too!
It all starts by washing less. Studies show, that if you use an anti-bacterial sportswear garment for just nine months longer, you will reduce water usage by close to 20%, carbon dioxide emissions by more than 15% and waste by 8% compared to a normal sportswear item.
Instead of washing your garments after each exercise, you can rinse under water and hang it up to dry, thereby reducing washing to every 3-8 times you use it. And with less washing and less bacterial growth, your garments also last longer, so you can buy less. Good for your wallet and good for the environment.
