Our Chamois Options

What do we love about Nalini cycling pads? Nalini understands that both excessive protection and too little protection can create serious problems for cyclist. Nalini was one of the first to use chamois in cycling clothing, and in the past 50 years, while working directly with athletes to improve on the pads they understand that each riders' requirements are unique.

They pay attention to the details and offer a variety of chamois with various densities, materials and technologies- all of which are OEKO-TEX certified. All chamois options shown below are female specific, bacteriostatic, light, breathable, hydrophilic and soft.
