Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Question regd pads

New to cycling and just got a shorts from aerotech and Bibs from Scott.

The pad of the Aerotech is black and brown and appears to be two materials, center and sides separate and stitched together, while the pad on the Scott is a kind of preformed red single piece pad.

Whats the difference/ I actually find the aerotech pads more comfortable.

Would love some help here as I am going to the US and am looking at buying stuff there and would like to know what the differences in these types of pads are? and which are supposedly better? [though I suspect that would vary from manufacturer to manufacturer?]

1) the better is whichever one you like best.
2) if you find a model that you really like, buy more, immediately, because they'll change soon.
