Armaurto's pro-peloton designed Protective Waist Shorts are great padded shorts in themselves.
But their real advantage is a truly unique and innovative feature: ARMA impact protection pads for the hips woven into specially created abrasion-reduction fabric - all of which significantly reduces the effects of an accident or fall. We'd rather you didn't test them out, in truth, but if you do then we're confident that bruising, road rash and other surface injuries will be substantially less of a problem!
Armaurto's VIPAR Waist Shorts are lightweight, flexible, breathable. They feature and high quality pad, and a wide leg gripper that goes effortlessly and stylishly with almost any jersey design.

Armaurto was born - like so many good ideas - out of adversity. Some years ago Chris, the Founder and chief product innovator, was involved in a serious accident, leaving him with numerous breaks and grazes.
As he recovered, he started to hunt for cycling gear that would reduce the risk (and seriousness) of injury if the same thing happened again. He drew a blank.
To this day, Armaurto's innovative products remain unique. Designed entirely in the UK, they work with some of the finest Italian factories and fabrics to create garments that work brilliantly and comfortably in themselves, but add a crucial yet unobtrusive extra element: the ability to protect you if you fall off.
Ideal for road riding, mountain biking, commuting or even non-cycling activities like skiing, the protection itself is lightweight, flexible and incredibly thin - as thin as 4mm, you barely know you're wearing it!
We love cycling innovation, and Chris and his Armaurto team have come up with one of the most original and most relevant that we've yet encountered.
