Ever suffered through a bike tour with chafing seams? Ridden 10 km and felt like your chamois had completely disappeared? With the VAUDE LesSeam Shirt and SQlab Innershorts, your next tour is guaranteed to be a pleasure.
Seamless comfort on your bike
The LesSeam Shirt — the name says it all. VAUDE manufactures the shirt using a knit process to eliminate bulky seams and chafing. A sustainable side effect of the knit production: The process eliminates all die-cut remnants which conserves materials. A variety of knit zones ensure that body moisture can evaporate quickly outward, an open, mesh-like knit at the back provides excellent ventilation.
But the LesSeam models aren’t just a classic base layer. Thanks to their attractive design and bold colors (in crimson red and eclipse for the women’s models) they can also be worn as outerwear. Whether worn layered or solo — the LesSeam Shirt offers cyclists a comfortably soft and dry microclimate for all kinds of biking and feels like a second skin.
VAUDE relies on resource-saving production
The primary material of the LesSeam models consists of 80 % recycled polyamide — the production is carried out by European producers and meets the bluesign® criteria, which guarantee exceptional skin-friendliness. The SQLab LesSeam shorts (available for men and women) are also manufactured using the same resource-saving knit process. For the men, there’s also a pair of bib pants for biking. These pants are outfitted with a chamois from the ergonomic specialists at SQlab.
SQlab: A comfortable seat for mountain bikers and trekking tours
The ergonomic SQlab chamois will also be used in other VAUDE bike inner pants starting in summer 2019. SQlab’s Pro Tour chamois is used in the SQlab Bib Innershorts (which are outfitted with comfortable shoulder straps) as well as the SQlab Innershorts, which are also available for women. This chamois was developed especially for mountain bikers who appreciate a comfortable ride and for athletic trekking cyclists with an upright sitting position and adds a decisive plus in comfort even on longer distances.
The chamois also promotes blood circulation and reduces unpleasant chafing. A thin gel layer at the seat bones absorbs vibrations and distributes the pressure of the saddle over a larger area. This ensures much less irritation than with conventional chamois.
