VeloVixen's own padded cycling knickers bring together the best of everything we've learnt from selling padded cycling pants over the years. That means great fit*, outstandingly comfortable technical material, a high quality Italian chamois pad, and superb finish. They're the ideal piece of kit for wearing under shorts, jeans, leggings or even skirts, and perfect for commuting, leisurely rides, spin classes, touring and holidays.

It took us 6 years to put our own name on a product - so we wanted to ensure we were creating something truly special. Designed initially for rides of up to 10-15 miles, our testing over the months has shown us that for many people they can be worn for much longer distances thanks to the great material, pad and fit.

Add to all that some of the snazziest designs and you may find you'll need a pair for every day of the week.

Technical Features


 

  • Italian chamois – perfect for short or long distance
  • Perineal area designed to support female anatomy
  • Moisture wicking, stretchy, durable and lightweight DRY-CLIM fabric
  • Made in Latvia, North Europe



 

Materials


 

  • 84% Polyester
  • 16% Elastane and Microfiber Chamois



 

Machine washable 40°C


 

Its strongly advised in the cycling world, NOT to wear your everyday knickers underneath cycling shorts. They've been created to replace knickers and provide a comfortable padded alternative.

We are! After 6 years of hand picking and curating the best cycling kit around, VeloVixen range was born in 2018. After that long, a couple of things were especially important: first, we'd learnt a lot about what works and looks great in women's cycling kit - we're not the Home of Women's Cycling Kit for nothing; second, we didn't want to create anything and risk our good name if we weren't 100% convinced about it ourselves - so we are.


We create VeloVixen products by boiling down what we've learnt over the years to the very essence of quality and style. We hope you like it! 

We aim to dispatch all orders within 2-3 working days, often sooner. Within the UK we use Royal Mail's Tracked 48 service - you will receive a tracking code with your order.

Next Day Delivery (guaranteed by 12pm with Royal Mail) is available on some products when ordered before 1pm. This option will be shown next to the specific product when available.
