The chamois’ importance
There’s nothing more important than a great chamois for a comfortable ride whether training or competing. Cycling shorts are worn without underwear providing manufacturers with a technical challenge as the chamois is in direct contact with both the saddle and the rider’s undercarriage.
G4’s chamois is best in class – unique, luxurious and upscale. A significant amount of research and development is reflected in this key element of the shorts.
A quality chamois for maximum comfort
A poor quality chamois will make your bike rides painful. Could there be anything more irritating than a chamois that’s too thin or with seams that chafe? G4 has created a feather light reinforced chamois allowing you to ride for hours in comfort and with confidence. The seamless, G4 chamois guarantees optimal well-being.
Men and women are not made the same! This seems obvious and yet many cycling shorts have unisex chamois.
G4 has developed gender-specific chamois, expertly tailored for the two very different morphologies. Foam padding is placed specifically where each needs it the most.
A great chamois enhances your performance
Here’s how a great chamois can significantly improve your cycling performance both in training and competition:
- The G4 chamois allows you sit perfectly aligned to the saddle, thus optimising your pedal stroke.
- The G4 chamois is shock-absorbing, reducing lumbar and cervical impacts and preventing joint pain.
- The G4 chamois is suitable for all types of riding position, whether you sit forward or backwards on the saddle.
Geoffroy Lequatre, former professional cyclist and co-founder of G4, gives us his opinion:
“When I was a professional cyclist, every team change involved a change of equipment. The all-important chamois differed greatly in quality from one team to another and could become a real problem in terms of comfort and efficiency. So when I set up G4, I made the quality and technical features of our chamois a priority for the brand. “
