What we wear on our bottoms is the most important element to cycling clothing. Spending long stints in the saddle can take its toll on us ladies, so ensuring we have the right underwear is key.
We’ve searched far and wide to bring you the best padded cycling underwear to cushion your bottom however bumpy the ride. They’re all perfect for commuting and short distance rides, giving you the chance to comfortably ride in your favourite skirt, trousers or shorts!
Club Ride Apparel: Jewel
The Jewel pedal-proof pantie from Club Ride Apparel is a winner in our eyes. Besides from looking the absolute part, they’ve got some pretty cool features too.
Fitting comfortably around the waist and legs with a soft stretchy waistband, the quick drying and breathable panties have a thin (but very comfortable) 3mm chamois that moves with you on the go.
The slim brief shape of them also means that they fit nicely under ordinary clothes. Being perfect for journeys you will be taking that are no longer than an hour, for anything more you might want to invest in a proper bib short!
If you’re looking for something a little more luxury with some everyday comfort then check out these rather elegant panties from Bike Nicks.
