Quality raw materials and continuous controls are at the core of our choice when selecting paddings for our chamois. The cutting process starts with a positioning plan, which helps to optimize the consumption of raw materials. We cut our paddings and we don’t shape them starting from big lots, because we want to make as less production waste as possible. Constant monitoring and controls on raw materials allow us to use foams that are regular in specifications and characteristics, leading to less post-production wastage. This cutting process produces around 40% production waste less than other padding-making processes. Elastic Interface® uses highly breathable foams in all top layers of its cycling pads, which is the layer that mostly needs to be breathable. These foams help to reduce heat and they let air pass freely; on the other side, paddings are not made with highly breathable foams, because they need to be protective in the first place.The newest padding at Elastic Interface® is the innovative HYBRID CELL SYSTEM. It features a mixed-cell structure that delivers unprecedented elastic recovery, and the 200kg/m³ density supports cyclists even in extreme situations like ultracycling.
