Ekoi offers shorts with weight-specific seatpads

French brand thinks different riders need different densities of gel in their seatpads

Ekoi has introduced Pro Gel Memory bib shorts with seatpads of different densities for different rider weights. 

If you’ve not heard of Ekoi, it’s a French internet retailer with a massive European presence. www.ekoi.com It offers fully customisable clothing, helmets, goggles and shoes through its online configurators.

The idea is that you can customise the Pro Gel Memory bib shorts with the pad that’s suitable for your weight. One pad is designed for riders who weigh less than 70kg, the next is for riders weighing 71-77kg, and the third is for those who are heavier than that. Heavier riders get a higher density of gel.

The Italian pads feature micro-perforations to improve breathability and ventilation channels. The memory gel that’s inserted in the pads is designed to adapt to your anatomy and ensure a comfortable ride.

The shorts look high quality, made from various different types of Lycra with a mesh upper and 6cm elasticated leg cuffs.
