Why hasn’t anyone thought of this before? The new SQ-Pad 12, has a maximum thickness of 4 mm and initially feels both exceptionally firm and of high quality. Everyone that rides regularly knows that for rides of over 30 min duration, a saddle with thin firm padding is considerably more comfortable than a saddle with thick soft padding. The same is true for a chamois. Most chamois are about 12 mm thick and soft – until now. The initial impression of the SQ-Pad 12 is very similar to that of a SQ Lab saddle, initially somewhat unfamiliar, but the more you ride the more comfortable it becomes, and adapts to the body perfectly without slipping.
Well if you ask me and the clients of mine that have been using them for the
last year, the answer would be a resounding YES.
We at Fitt 1st are committed to enhancing the the cycling experience in any way we can so when we find a product like this we have no problem spreading the word
I've never used a bibshort that was so comfortable in the 25 years I've been riding.
They conform to your body like they were custom made.
They never catch the front of the saddle when you stand and resit.
They don't pull on my shoulders.
They provide just the right amount of compression to keep the legs fresh.
They are nice and long in the thigh so that they don't catch your hamstring.
They provide a solid supportive feel on the saddle, you don't get that diaper sqishy feel.
They are reasonably priced at $289.00 ( available at Fitt 1st )

WHAT IS UNIQUE ABOUT THE CHAMOIS , THE HEART OF THE BIBSHORT
Breathable comfort foam
A patented manufacturing technique achieves high breathability and excellent damping properties despite the foam being high density. In the process, 98% of the foam’s surface cells are broken up so that only the connection between the foam cells remains and make up the framework of the foam. This allows uncomfortable sweat around the perineum area which often leads to chafing to penetrate to the outside away from the body.
More advantages of the SQ-Pad 12:
- No pressure zones: Compared to many other softer chamois on the market, the firm construction and low profile SQ-Pad holds its shape extremely well and is not pushed inwards by pedaling.
- Optimal adaption: Over time the chamois will become more elastic and will perfectly adapt to the individual body shape without slipping.
