Clasico™ Integrated Pads

 400-Mile™ Clasico™ Pad and Clasico ™ Integrated Pads - The pad is the short. The short is the pad. Instead of just sewing a pad into the short, we create the short by sewing the fabric to the pad all the way around the perimeter.  De Soto pioneered this concept design in 2012. It has proven to be extremely comfortable and preferred by customers. These pads stretch in all directions and completely eliminate all seams between your body and the saddle. All pads offer antibacterial properties that will not wash out. You might notice the pads for triathlon and road bikes are shaped differently. This is to accommodate a forward-rotated pelvic position when on a steeper seat angle bike (triathlon), versus a more conventional road bike position. All our pads are made with a proprietary foam that floats when it gets wet. The fiber absorbs very little moisture, making it a quick-drying pad. We advise hang-drying all of our triathlon and cycling shorts. All foam pads share the same technologies but have a gender specific cut to create the best fit possible.
