The Como Chamois Short from Kaden Apparel is designed from the ground up by our team of women designers to be the most comfortable padded cycling short you’ve ever experienced. While many other companies just white-label other brand’s chamois shorts, ours is designed from scratch with all the best features combined into one short. The non-see-through Italian fabric and Italian dual-density foam pad is exactly what your butt needs. They can be worn for gravel biking, road riding, indoor cycling, or under your mountain bike shorts/pants for MTB or enduro riding.
Fit: The shorts fit snuggly yet comfortably.
Waist and leg band / label hook: The upper waistband is a higher waisted yoga-style waistband that sits right around the belly button. It’s designed to be smooth, wide, and is elastic-free so it doesn’t dig into your belly. The leg bands are also designed to be smooth and wide for the same reason and are also elastic-free. Your legs and belly don’t want uncomfortable elastic digging into them! The upper waistband can be rolled down if desired too. Plus, the label on the inside of the waistband is designed to double as a hook to hang your sweaty chamois shorts out to dry!
Inseam length: The inseam length is 8”. The length of the shorts come down to mid-thigh for most riders.
Chamois pad: The Italian chamois pad is designed with two-densities of foam and is perfect for all your cycling adventures. This pad is of medium thickness so if you’re used to a really thick road cycling chamois pad, this is a little thinner than that so it’s more nimble and less diaper feeling.
Pockets: There is one pocket on the left side thigh that is designed to fit a smartphone, small wallet, or a snack. The pocket was intentionally placed on the left side so if you’re wearing them with the Pinner Shorts, you won’t have pockets overlapping on the same side.
Tested thoroughly: We tested dozens of chamois pads and fabric to find the very best. These shorts were tested during many hot summer days, chilly fall rides, and indoor training sessions and are great for whatever type of riding you’re doing.
Uses: Wear them on their own or under your mountain bike shorts or pants. Perfect for:
- Mountain biking/cross-country riding
- Gravel riding
- Road biking
- Indoor spinning/training/Peloton riding
- Spontaneous swimming holes (don’t worry, the fabric isn’t see-through!)
- Shorts body and waistband: 78% Nylon, 22% Spandex
Fit notes: These shorts run pretty true to size so if you typically wear a medium, choose a medium. If you prefer a tighter compression-like fit, consider sizing down.
Where did the name come from? The Como Chamois Short was named after one of our favorite regions in Italy. Lake Como! Not only does this area boast gorgeous scenery, the cycling is great too!
