They claim a better pad. I usually wear medium and bought medium from them. They were a tad short, and the traps were tight. I lengthened teh straps and they were OK. I also have a pair of large from them that fit me better. They are my only large bibs.
That said, Taxi777 did the davis double in his, and I've seen other forum members do long rides in them.
I'll phone and ask if they've changed anything in the last year.
The jerseys however seem to run to size, and are comfortable. I am very pleased with my summer weight magic fiber jersey.
Their web site has this info on pads. I'll add a note to make a choice in listing.
CS Performance Pad
The pad that has been worn to victories in races around the world, the CS Performance SCT (Seamless Comfort Technology) Pad is a revolutionary, 100%-seamless, multi-density, Italian 4-Way Pad. What truly sets our new pad apart is that it's a stretch pad. That's right an elastic chamois. Why is this important? As you ride and your legs go round and round, you need a pad that moves and conforms. Traditional pads stay in one place. Ours doesn't. The first time you ride in our stretch 4-Way Pad you will immediately feel the difference!
Our 4-Way Pad is BIOAKTIV. Unlike other pads that are labeled as "antibacterial," our pad uses no chemical substance on the fabric, and no chemical substance is near your skin. BIOAKTIV prevents the formation of bacteria, thanks to silver ions in the yarn. Unlike a chemical substance on the fabric, this is permanent; it does not disappear after washing!
CS Endurance Pad - NEW!
New for 2010! Designed for long-distance racing and training, the CS Endurance Pad features increased padding in the most critical areas to provide hours of comfort. Our exclusive Seamless Comfort Technology (SCT) ensures the pad will conform to your body by eliminating all seams while still offering maximum breathability. Available for men and women. Made in Italy.
Which Pad is Right for Me?
Choosing a chamois is a personal choice and we want to emphasize that neither the CS Performance or CS Endurance pad is better than the other. We offer only the finest Italian pads so both models are of the highest quality. If you prefer a closer feel to the saddle then perhaps the CS Performance pad will be more to your liking. If you prefer a chamois with enhanced padding then the CS Endurance pad might be your choice. If you are still not sure please speak to one of our Customer Service Representatives who will be more than happy to explain the features of each pad.
