The biker's most sensitive point of contact with his bike is on the saddle. This is where it is decided whether a ride becomes a pleasure or an torture. That's why you should pay particular attention to high quality when buying cycling shorts.
Cycling shorts require only a relatively small piece of fabric, but they are among the most technically demanding and sophisticated garments. The demands on fit and wearing comfort are enormous, and the finishing must be of high quality to ensure functionality and durability.
Different models of course have to meet different requirements. Cyclists are tall or short, lightweight or heavy. There are cycling shorts for women and cycling shorts for men. They sit on different saddles, the road bike saddle, the MTB saddle or the touring bike saddle. And of course the trousers should also look good. For those who prefer a look that is suitable for everyday cycling, we recommend cycling underpants. These are undershorts with a sewn-in seat pad worn under everyday clothing.
“The perfect pair of cycling shorts is a great challenge, but it can be achieved. If the seams are as flat as possible and do not irritate the skin. Ideally, there are no seams at all in the sensitive areas.”
That’s right! We manage to produce cycling clothing without seams. Highly elastic materials are welded ultra-flat with the unique hotBOND® ultrasonic technology. Special machines melt the layers of fabric on the surface and weld them into ultra-flat bonds. These bonds are not only comfortable to wear, but also more tear resistant and durable than conventional seams.
In addition to bike shorts in various lengths and both waistband and bib shorts, hotBOND® technology is also used in tight-fitting cycling jerseys. The hotBOND® collection is exclusively manufactured in Austria.
The advantages of hotBOND® can be felt much better than put into words – so it’s best to just try it out for yourself!
Special attention should also be paid to the correct seat padding. The seat padding is primarily geared towards the rider and his or her subjective well-being. But the type of cycling also plays an important role. It influences the seating position and the time spent on the bike. We have been optimising our “leathers” for many years and bring suitable seat pad concepts to the market for the different areas of use.
