Zoic Women's Impact Liner
The Zoic Women's Impact Liner is padded for crash protection.
The padded Imapct Liner has Zoic's ZO-Tech chamois and padding on the outside of the hip area to help protect you in the event of an unintended spontaneous inverted dismount. They are designed to be worn under your regular baggy shorts or tights.
Fit and features:
I tested the impact protection on my first ride with these shorts. I had a light overshort on over the top of them. I had to tuck and roll off when my bike slid out. I hit my forearm, shoulder, and hip pretty hard going down and slid for a ways. My elbow and shoulder got trashed, but my hip wasn't even bruised where the shorts padding covers. Had a bruise on my thigh and was a little more sore just to the back of where the hip padding ends, closer to the sacrum. I could have used a full-body suit covered with those wonderful padded hexagons.
These Shorts are Awesome - Comfortable and excellent for flying down mountains. Provides the security of a softer landing on either side. Love 'em
