Champion System Chamois Guide
Worn in the World Tour by UAE Team Emirates our bespoke Chamois technology delivers a level of comfort that will perform in the most extreme conditions. Pro cyclists can spend 6 hours at a time in high intensity conditions and will only wear a short with a pad that can offer the comfort and support that means the don't even have to worry about their chamois. The Champion System chamois is 100% breathable, will not deteriorate like traditional glued chamois, and is backed by a Lifetime Quality Commitment.
The Champion System chamois are some of the first to use a new technology founded and patented by Italian company Dr Pad. Referred to as CUTTING Technology, the basic process starts with a single rectangular shaped high quality cycling specific foam from which a special mould is made for each chamois style - this mould is what determines the shape and contour of the chamois.
Dr Pad have commissioned specifically shaped moulds for Champion System use - no other manufacturer has these moulds so it is not an ‘off the shelf’ chamois anyone can buy.Furthermore to the integrity of the company Dr Pad believes in making everything in Italy. From the metal moulds used in production, through to the actual foams used, are all sourced in the local region and produced in house one hundred percent, which allows for excellent quality control and flexibility. We firmly believe Dr Pad chamois are the best on the market.

CS Performance & Apex Triathlon Pads
The pad that has been worn to victories in races around the world, the CS Performance SCT Pad is a revolutionary, 100%-seamless, multi-density, Italian 4-Way Pad. What truly sets our new pad apart is that it's a stretch pad. That's right — an elastic chamois. Why is this important? As you ride and your legs go round and round, you need a pad that moves and conforms. Traditional pads stay in one place. Ours doesn't. The first time you ride in our stretch 4-Way Pad — you will immediately feel the difference! Our 4-Way Pad is BIOAKTIV. Unlike other pads that are labeled as "antibacterial," our pad uses no chemical substance on the fabric, and no chemical substance is near your skin. BIOAKTIV prevents the formation of bacteria, thanks to silver ions in the yarn. Unlike a chemical substance on the fabric, this is permanent; it does not disappear after washing! Made in Italy. Available for men and women.
The CS Apex Pad is specifically designed for triathlon and features increased padding in the most critical areas to provide hours of comfort. Our exclusive Seamless Comfort Technology (SCT) ensures the pad will conform to your body by eliminating all seams while still offering maximum breathability. Available for men and women. Made in Italy.
