Aero Tech Design

Hey All,

I would like to order a few things from Aero Tech Design. I have heard good things about them and I would like to give them a try. However, I hate to pay the full price for anything, so does anyone know a discount code or where I can get one?

Thanks
Blake

Gee, I buy from them (full price) but would love to get a discount on their already great prices - dunno how much shopping you have done, but once you get past 3XL, I do not think you can find cheaper (of the same Quality) - but again - would love a discount!

I have found some sales at Bike Events like Hilly Hundred, but not on line.
I find their quality is good, and is well priced for the value. In fact I like their product much better than some much higher priced name brand bibs.

I ordered a pair of their mens pro bike shorts, and they are well worth the $40 I paid. Very well made, comfortable, and arrived just fine. They are a good company to do business with, and offer a quality product at an awesome price.

Discounts? Really? They are one company that not only makes clothing for us here in the USA, but they try to make them affordable and with USA goods as much as possible. Obviously some of the materials they need are not available USA made, but they try their best. I personally think their shorts are the absolute best bang for the buck out there, you will need to spend almost 2x the price to find that quality, from what I have seen at bike shops.

I say just order a pair, pay the full price, and see if you like them. I almost guarantee that you will I think the only way to find lower price on their shorts would be to find them with a tent set up at an event (Sea Otter most recently) and they will likely have a few bucks shaved off their prices.

They are also on facebook for anyone that cares

Their sublimated jerseys weren't great, but maybe that's why they don't sell them anymore. I have 4 sets of bibs and a pair of tights from them and 3 bibs are great but one has a mis-placed pad (it's too far forward), i wore it too many times to feel good about sending it back so it's relegated to short rides, it's off but still wearable. all their gear holds up well and is worth the price.

I bought a pair cycling gloves from these folks. I like the gloves but they were made in Pakistan. Not everything there is made in the USA.

Right, but when it's made in the USA, it's usually noted in the description. If not, and you aren't sure, just email them and ask. I got a response within a day when I asked the same question.

I have five pair of their shorts. Very good value and accurate sizing. The last time I bought shorts they were having a sale: 10 or 20% off if you bought three. I believe I bought 3 of their pro shorts for $120 out the door.

I called and ordered some shorts, they were out of stock but they sewed some up that night and sent them the next day, great bibs, and a super value at the regular price. The pad isn't my favorite but its more then adequate.

I'm glad I ran across this thread earlier today. I just ordered some shorts for my wife and I tonight, and took advantage of the 10% off code.

I bought a jersey from them and it fits great! In fact it's a little too big on me but I like the extra room. Shipping was fast. I'll be buying more products from them again. Thanks for the promo code. I need a new pair of mountain bike shorts.

I bought a pair of "Aero Tech Designs Outlaw Bullet Mountain Bike Shorts" for $60 from them after a long search through many other companies, and I must say that they are fantastic. Great quality for the price, huge range of sizes (which most companies charge extra for larger sizes, when aero tech designs does not, S-4XL), and great comfort, could not ask for more. Also, a great bonus is that they are three hours from my home, so shipping is next day with UPS ground.
