COLOUR FASTNESS

We never underestimate the importance how the fabrics are dyed: it is crucial that the colour on the pads is never transferred to the skin, especially in such delicate areas like the ones in contact with the pad.

That is why we use fabrics that have only been piece dyed and can guarantee colour fastness in high-moisture situations as well as when subjected to constant localised friction.

BACTERIOSTASIS

Bacteriostasis has always been one of the holy grails when developing Elastic Interface® fabrics.

Bacteriostasis is the result of any process that inhibits the growth of bacteria while simultaneously maintaining the skin’s normal bacterial balance.

Using a bacteriostatic fabric is one of the secrets to preventing the skin irritations and rashes caused by sweat.

SKIN FEELING

Feeling great against the skin is an absolute must for any pad. But a fabric also has to be breathable and quick drying.

This is achieved with a technique known as brushing, and if the fabrics are made with carbon filaments they undergo one more step called emerising, which ensures an even softer feel.

The Elastic Interface® research and development lab (EIT LAB) successfully creates fabrics that feel soft and comfortable yet also deliver top-flight performance.

STRETCH

Since the concept of stretch has been introduced to the textile industry, fabrics are much better at adapting to and moving with the body.

Being able to work with a cyclist’s body and follow every pedal stroke without any stiffness or unwanted chafing or friction is the key feature of any Elastic Interface® cycling pad.

All our fabrics are designed to enhance your performance at any level.

Day in day out we do our best to deliver on two goals: your health and your comfort. To succeed in our mission we have developed eight exclusive fabrics in conjunction with MITI Spa that meet exacting requirements when manufacturing our exclusive cycling pads.

EIT ECO PERFORMANCE FABRIC

Eco Performance fabric is what happens when we apply an ecosustainable philosophy to the performance of Elastic Interface® products. The result is a 100% recycled warp-knit stretch fabric in which even the elastomer is recycled and certified to the Global Recycled Standard (GRS).
Producing Elastic Interface® Eco Performance fabric enables us to reduce CO2 emissions by about 53% as well as cutting waste from raw material, which helps to protect the environment. This process is certified to the SCS Recycled Content Standard.

Composition: Polyamide 80% – Elastane 20%

EIT X-FIFTY

EIT X-Fifty is unique in structure and in the use of threads, offering excellent temperature control and breathability properties.
The particular knit structure offers ‘reduced points of contact’ with the skin (REPOC), promoting micro air circulation which helps keep the skin from overheating, favoring comfort.
X-Fifty is inspired by the combination of technologies present in our X-Tract and Coolcube fabrics.
The darker, brushed, polyamide cube comes in direct contact with the skin preventing chafing and irritations, the lighter colored polyester cube works at a lower level providing for perfect moisture management as the special channel structure canalizes and expels moisture, reducing the sticky sensation typical of humid environments and allowing the athlete to wear the garment feeling cool and dry.
Special REPOC construction (reduced points of contact) / Soft polyamide and polyester construction for quick-dry and cooling functions / Bacteriostatic

Composition: Polyamide 64% – Polyester 23% – Elastane 13%

EIT CARBONIUM FLASH

EIT adds a new high performance fabric that combines the already successful benefits of top of the line X-Tract and the Carbonium fabric. EIT CARBONIUM FLASH has the X-Tract’s special channel structure that helps collect, canalize and expel moisture allowing for rapid drying on the skin surface and the natural antistatic and bacteriostatic properties of the Carbonium fabric. The special polyamide- carbon threading makes for an extremely soft and breathable fabric for maximum well-being.
Excellent moisture management / Ultra fast drying / Maximum softness / Bacteriostatic / Antistatic

Composition: Polyamide 76% – Elastane 21% – Carbon 3%

EIT CARBONIUM

EIT Carbonium is a very special three threaded textile, with highly enhanced all-way stretch, great breathablity and moisture transport characteristics, plus EIT Carbonium aids heat dispersion, reduces friction and has natural bacteriostatic and antistatic properties.
Bacteriostatic / Antistatic / Great breathability / Excellent sweat Absorption

Composition: Polyamide 76% – Elastane 20% – Carbon 4%

EIT COOLCUBE

Coolcube has a three-dimensional construction concealing two different properties. The brushed polyamide cube comes in direct contact with the skin to help prevent chafing and irritations. The polyester cube works at a lower level improving moisture management and promoting quick-dry functions. This special combination of fibers gives a lower temperature feeling at touch and provides the wearer a cooling effect.
Three dimensional construction / Soft polyester and polyamide construction for quick-dry and cooling functions / Bacteriostatic

Composition: Polyamide 50% – Polyester 37% – Elastane 13%

EIT X-TRACT

EIT X-TRACT is a highly evolved fabric with a revolutionary two layer channel structure. The channels in the top layer help collect and canalize moisture, forcing it down to the second layer which expels it.
Maximum sweat absorption / Ultra fast drying / Fresh & dry effect / Great breathability / Bacteriostatic

Composition: Polyamide 80% – Elastane 20%

EIT CUBE

EIT CUBE is the next generation of our EIT MAX, a soft microfibre fabric with its distinctive “cube” pattern and improved sweat absorption other than a higher level of elasticity and exceptional color fastness and durability.
Improved sweat absorption / Higher elasticity / Improved color fastness / Bacteriostatic

Composition: Polyamide 87% – Elastane 13%

EIT MAX

EIT MAX is the evolution of the first original fabric used in our fabric platform. EIT MAX is a soft microfibre fabric with an excellent level of elasticity and sweat absorption.
Soft microfibre / Good elasticity / Good sweat absorption / Bacteriostatic

Composition: Polyamide 84% – Elastane 16%

EIT TEAM

EIT TEAM fabric is now a soft runproof microfibre that offers good elasticity and a smooth peach finish, perfect for any entry level chamois.
Soft microfibre / Good elasticity / Fair breathability / Bacteriostatic

Composition: Polyamide 80% – Elastane 20%
