7MESH

CHAMOIS GUIDE


NO ZIGS, NO ZAGS

When Ian, our VP of Product started designing the very first pair of 7mesh bib shorts, he’d never even set eyes on a raw chamois. Luckily, he’d spent the past decade making hyper complex climbing kit, so he quickly got up to speed. And with the benefit of fresh thinking, he saw that where other bibs were poorly stitched and badly finished, he could create something that looked beautiful inside and out, one that placed seams away from sensitive areas, and integrated the chamois on a separate layer for unmatched comfort. He called this concept Clean Finish tailoring, and it soon spread to every single piece of 7mesh apparel.


TAKE A SEAT

How did choosing a chamois get so complicated? We got tired of specs that said little, and went with our butts, testing every chamois under the sun until we settled on two stand out pads from Italian brand Elastic Interface, before re-engineering them to meet the needs of each padded short.

Look inside a 7mesh Lycra short, and you’ll see either the Force or Space chamois — strange names, great pads. They both do the same job, but excel in slightly different areas.


FORCE

Force is a supple, slim profile chamois that excels on fast, hot rides where maximum breathability matters more than outright endurance. But don’t let its focus on speed over distance fool you — Force can do the big days. But if you’re riding back to-backs and value support over anything else, take a look at Space.

  • Air mapping system: cut out wings in sensitive areas for maximum breathability.
  • Ultra dense top foam gives a supportive, yet flexible form fitting performance chamois.
  • Men's - Central channel specific for male anatomy to relieve pressure and improved blood flow.
  • Women's - Dual-density Central insert: 70kg/m3 relieves pressure.
  • ECO X-fifty top fabric.
