Endura launch new custom bib short PadFit system

We headed down to Cyclefit in London to get a first look at the new Endura PadFit system, which aims to use sophisticated technology and pressure mapping to ensure you have the perfect chamois in your shorts

A comfortable pair of bib shorts is an essential piece of kit. Endura have realised that the current ergonomics applied to bib shorts does not suit everyone. For example, just because you are 6'4 and 100kg, does not nessicarily mean you have really wide sit bones. To put it another way, an XL pair of shorts is likely to have a huge chamois, regardless of weather the wearer needs it. Conversely a small rider can have wide sit bones and require small shorts with a wide chamois.


The size of the pad is easily identified on the box, by way of the colour.
