US Brand, Pixi, has made an innovative attempt to solve the uncomfortable issue of padded gym pants for spin, and commuting.

Many of us decide to forgo the comfort of chamois shorts at spin class because we want the versatility to hit the gym after, and not have the bulgy bum chamois to hinder our training. Pixi has developed an active legging with a detachable chamois liner to help women to seamlessly transition from outdoor and indoor cycling to all other activities.

The removable liner is discreet, not as padded and heavy as a regular cycling chamois, but provides enough comfort to see you through spin class and a cycle commute. This additional protection for short rides and training sessions aim to solve chafing, pelvic bruising and genital discomfort.

The Go Anywhere bottoms are constructed with a breathable, silky soft fabric that wicks away sweat making them perfect for steamy indoor cycling workouts, hot yoga, and high humidity running. The sheer-proof bottoms can be worn with the pad for cycle and spin, or without the pad for yoga, run, leisure, brunch or whatever comes next. With the racer and commuter in mind, each pant includes reflective elements to keep riders visible in low light and a front pocket to hold essentials.

The TushCush features gentle, subtle fasteners and a soft, contoured pad to provide a flexible fit that hugs the body, moving as the body moves, and never falling out of place when the wearer pops from standing to sitting in the saddle. The soft, smooth pad offers pelvic protection without causing chafing or irritating delicate skin. The TushCush folds neatly inside a small mesh bag that can be discreetly carried in a pocket or purse when on foot.

"I designed our Go Anywhere pant with a removable TushCush that gives you the protection and comfort you need, all in a flattering shape that disappears under the pant." - Emily Welsch, founder and CEO of Pixi

The first line of Go-Anywhere bottoms will include a short, crop, capri and full-length leggings to suit all active styles. The TushCush pads will be sold individually and in packs of three, interchangeable in every pair of the Go Anywhere bottoms.

Pixi's Kickstarter campaign launched today with a pledge target of $20,000 to get the first line of production under way. For more information and updates on Pixi, head over to their website here.
