The Troy Lee Designs LPS 5605 Shorts protect you from crashes, and from more ordinary things, like your saddle. The LPS 5605 shorts combine a regular chamois short with a foam padded crash short to simplify your setup and make you more comfortable. You'll find impact pads on the outside of the hips and thighs, as well as on the inside of the thigh think top tube impact. Inside the short, you'll find a chamois that reduces friction and abrasion during pedaling. It's all sewn to a four way stretch fabric that moves with you, not matter what kind of body English you're throwing down.
