It is our goal to offer you the highest quality cycling shorts that can be customized to your own design. Our shorts are made from an soft elastic, and highly functional material. They are constructed to have the fewest possible seams in critical areas. The seat padding is a BiElastic material. Leg hemlines are equipped with a rubber-gripping band, to deter slipping. The straps (bibs) are made from a comfortable mesh material.
We purchase our fabric from only the highest acclaimed European manufacturers and suppliers. Each fabric is individually selected to maximize comfort and durability and is moisture wicking to ensures quick moisture dispersal and optimal temperature regulation.
Our shorts are sewn using a combination of 'Overlock', 'Flatlock', and 'Zig Zag' seams, to prevent these from coming undone. The overall construction of the shorts was also given special attention to limit the number of seams in critical areas such as the inner thighs and seat area.
The thread itself is made from a tear-resistant and elastic fibres which are specially Made in Germany. The thread stretches with the material making the shorts even more durable and robust.
No doubt about it; padding is an important component to cycling shorts. We use only the highest quality pads in owayo shorts. They are made from a multi-density foam, with a 3D-elastisity. The various foam densities create optimal absorbtion and added strength; the light elastisity enables the pad to stretch in any direction, allowing the shorts move easily with the riders movement.
Our printing process is computer-controlled to enable millimeter precision and laser sharpness. We use a 'thermal sublimated process' that binds the colour molecules to the fabric fibres at the molecular level. In this way, the fabric can remain soft and breathable, and the print will not wash-out, fade, or deteriorate.
Natual Wear & Tear (Fabric Pilling)
Fabric pilling is the formation of small fuzzy balls on the surface of the fabric. This is not due to the manufacturing process and is therefore not considered a 'defected product'. The fabric surface in this area has had frictional contact with a harder material.
How to Minimize Wear & Tear
Pay attention as to not ride with a saddle that is rough or ripped in any areas. A well-known cycling short destroyer is velcro (e.g. many saddle bags have velcro fasteners ). Continual contact with velcro on almost any fabric is best avoided as this rough material destroys most all fabrics.
