There are a few things in life you should never skimp on. Toilet paper. Tattoos. Kitchen knives. And a cycling chamois. We’re raising the bar when it comes to your most important ass-et. Not being able to ride because of the pain in your butt is not tolerated at Black Sheep. No ifs, ands or butts about it.
High Density Chamois
High Density Chamois
Soft as a baby’s butt.
One glorious little package wrapped up in our 3D Elastic fabric. With it’s microfibre cells it’s not only highly breathable, it’s as soft as a baby’s, well, butt. And to top all that, it’ll last much longer too. The single piece construction means no pieces moving around over time. Less rubbage for your luggage. No sliding, chafing or aching. No bummers.
It's all in the thickness.
Not too thin. Not too thick. Just right. Bigger isn’t always better. Our OG Essential Chamois was loved for it's thickness and geometry. We've kept the best bits, combined with Foam Carving Technology. All adds to a more comfortable ride.
All in the right places.
The women's pelvis is shorter and narrower. Nope, we aren't trying to give you an anatomy lesson. But you need a chamois specific to your body. Foam in the right places, and not in the wrong places. Pretty simple. But so are a lot of other things men in high places overlook. Ooops. Did we say that out loud?
Happy Butt. Happy Rider.
There’s more you can do than choose a good chamois to keep your rump happy. Here’s our top tips to help you keep pedaling on long rides without any pains in the arse.
Having a bike fit will not only keep you safe from injury, but you will be able to sort any discrepancies and imbalances that can lead to chafing that causes saddle sores. Getting a professional bike fit will make riding your bike infinitely more enjoyable and pain-free.
Saddle selection is a fickle beast. Although brands are getting closer to identifying pressure mapping in conjunction with saddle pain, it does tend to be a trial and error journey. A good saddle will feel like it fits you like a glove, without feeling like you have to slide around to be comfortable.
Chamois After Care.
Caring for your chamois is caring for your undercarriage. Make sure to wash your bibs in cold water without harmful and abrasive detergent. Store them flat or hanging. And thank them for their services.
