400-Mile™ Cycling Short - 2017*

  • 17000


 BS3

2017 model now available.

Not a fan of the Ceramico Pad?  We have the short you want with the original 400-Mile™ pad we had in our shorts before we introduced the Ceramico Pad.  

Emilio gave these bicycling shorts and bibs the "400-Mile" name from product testing consisting of 400 miles over 4 days. His logic was that many shorts feel fine for 100+ mile rides. The real question is how does that saddle feel when you get on the bike the next morning for another 100 miles...and the next morning? This was the inspiration for the design, the pad, and the name.

New Features:

  • We sewed the 14mm 400-Mile™ Pad into the short, versus on top of the short. This allows the pad to stretch more, and float; which means it can be used as a race piece in triathlon. On the bike, the pad stretches with the short and follows your skin as it moves with every pedal stroke, eliminating the friction that can cause irritation or rashes.
  • Seamless inner thigh eliminates friction against saddle and thighs
    Carry Over Features and Benefits:
    • 11-panel bike short made of Forza Compressor fabric ensures a perfect fit, and targeted muscle support 
    • 3-inch Mobius™ Comfort Compression leg bands keep shorts in place without excess squeezing (no elastic!)
    • Hi-rise, elastic waist and adjustable drawstring keeps the short up, and protects you from low back sun exposure
    • 3 pockets: one one each outer thigh and one center back pocket that fit cell phones, smart phones, fuel packets, and most sunglasses
    • Curvilinear™ seamlines and contrast flatstitch highlight panel construction, create an attractive appearance and are extremely durable
    • This environmentally-friendly innovation is completely free of solvents
    • Not recommended for repeated use in a chlorinated pool
    • Made in USA

    Inseam lengths:
    Note  - Shorter Leg Length than other brands: Have you seen the length of the shorts that riders have been wearing in Europe lately, especially in the Grand Tours? As opposed to most brands here in the states, which come just above the knees, our 400-Mile Shorts are comfortably shorter. Our inseam is similar to those currently used by the pros in the Grand Tours. They have no gripper elastic, yet stay in place and do not bind the legs.
