Whether or not it’s boosted with electric power, getting about on two wheels is popular, with a 2020 Fahrrad-Monitor survey showing that 85% of participants say fitness is their reason for cycling, while more than two-thirds of the participants put the emphasis on environmental protection. At the same time, there is growing demand for high-quality equipment that will have a positive effect on the cycling experience. Top of the list: Cycling shorts. The garment has to be stylish, made of functional material and, above all, it needs to be smartly padded. Whether it’s for extended tours or racing – to prevent bike tours from turning into hell rides, SQlab, a Munich company, has selected Supersoft TPE for its new shorts padding. The result is outstandingly high-quality, ergonomic, and durable trouser pads – so you can concentrate on just enjoying the cycling.
