Men's Elite Long Distance Padded Cycling Shorts

 Long-Distance Specific Shorts | Durable, Anti-Chafe Fabrics | Thick Gel Pad | Made in the USA

Aero Tech Designs is proud to introduce the epitome of American quality and craftmanship with our Men's Elite Padded Cycling Short. The innovative features and quality components make this product one of the best American-made compression cycling shorts. The foundation of the shorts is dual compression fabrics, an anatomically correct fit for cycling, thick gel crotch padding, and premium cycling features. The Elite Shorts have two different compression fabrics in different areas of the shorts. The crotch fabric is an anti-chafe abrasion-resistant blend, and the outer side panels are a six-way stretch high compression material designed to compress muscles to reduce fatigue. The Elite Air Gel Pad is a thick, long-distance chamois pad with a smooth single-face fabric with anti-bacterial ion woven, high-density perforated foams, gel inserts, and ventilation channels. The shorts stay secure on long rides with a high-rise waist with a soft stretch elastic waistband and leg grippers with a silicone drip-style band. Our Men's Elite Cycling Shorts are available in an extended size range and 3 thread color accents. Find yourself at ease when riding long distances and long hours because The Elite Padding Bike Shorts were developed for long-distance rides and are perfect for century rides.

I want to compliment Aero Tech Designs on their Elite bike shorts. They have the most comfortable fit and best gel pad on the market and, I have found them to be incredibly durable. I bought a pair of the Elite bike shorts when training to ride the Northern Tier (Seattle to Maine) and quickly purchased a second pair. I used the two pairs of Elite shorts to train for the Northern Tier, ride the Northern Tier and I have been using them to train for the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route which I will ride this summer with my brother in Law. The two pairs of shorts have over 9,000 miles split between them- the gel pads still feels great and the spandex is just now getting thin in a couple of places! Thanks again for an American made product of exceptional quality and durability. - Dave Lofquist
