Velusta’s 3D Impact Protection is made up of multiple hi-tech layers. With a friction resistant layer on top and a shock absorbing layer made from 3D-structure, the PROTEC I cushions the initial impact of the fall and reduces burns and recurring abrasions on the body to a minimum. A special smooth layer on the inside provides a
soft and pleasant feeling.
Our research has shown that of all road rash injuries resulting from bike crashes, 7 out of 10 occur around the hip area. This is why Velusta designed the PROTEC I with protection at the hips. The 3D Impact Protection is designed in such a way that it does not affect leg movements due to the division into two separate protection strips on both sides of the hips. It performs like your second skin.
All layers are flexible, lightweight and breathable so that no sweat spots or irritation can occur when pushing the limits on your bike. The entire fabric integrated at the hip area of the bibshorts is less than 4 millimeters thin!
Velusta uses two totally different chamois pads designed for the female
and male anatomy to
provide maximum comfort during bicycle rides of up to six hours (tested for 2 weeks on El Teide by competition riders).
The women’s chamois pad is slightly wider due to women’s wider sit and modulates the thickness according to the weight and pressure of the different points of contact to ensure maximum support on all the contact points between the body and saddle. The men’s chamois pad has an extended front part that provides superior comfort and greater freedom of movement.
The very high-density foam gives pro riders the support they need during long-distance bike rides. The pad is made of an ultrasoft lightweight fabric that is naturally antibacterial and highly breathable. It keeps you cool and dry in the sensitive areas of the body during your most intense efforts.
