bacteriostatic Elastic Interface® chamois

 

 

why bacteriostatic chamois are superior to antibacterial chamois

a bacteriostatic treatment acts by inhibiting the growth or reproduction of bacteria while preserving the normal bacterial flora of the skin. using a bacteriostatic fabric is one of the secrets to preventing the skin irritations and rashes caused by sweat. In contrast, an antibacterial treatment tends to eliminate all bacteria, including the kind that normally lives on the skin.

bacteriostatic GYM Elastic Interface® chamois

how do I choose a cycling pad?

when choosing a cycling pad, it is essential that you are not swayed by your first impression after putting the shorts on and standing up. you need to sit on a saddle in a cycling or spin position and check that the points subjected to the greatest pressure (the perineal area and sit bones) are properly protected. when deciding which shorts and pad to buy, the different saddle positions and length of ride will influence your requirements. the cycling pads are designed with a variety of densities to ensure the best response to your needs for comfort and protection.

men and women have different anthropometric parameters so our chamois are specially designed and crafted to reflect these differences: this ensures that they have the right density and specific design to protect the areas most at risk of suffering from pressure and chafing. a bacteriostatic chamois will stop the growth or reproduction of pathogenic bacteria without altering the probiotic flora on your skin.

we currently offer two types of chamois - Adriatico Elastic Interface® chamois in our performance shorts and GYM Elastic Interface® chamois in our freedom tights.
