While providing comfort and breathability through the unique netting design, it offers little support.

The shoulder straps were excessively long and just too stretchy.

On first impressions the chamois looks as if it’s stitched on the wrong way round but this in fact is correct.

The chamois is constructed with three different densities to offer protection in all the right places, which we found gave us a comfortable ride.


The fit around the legs was good but above the waist Mavic has got it very wrong.
