Luckily we didn’t test this feature.
But the 4-way stretch fabric provides a snug, comfortable fit we enjoyed. The lay-flat straps complement the comfortable fit. Poc’s chamois features VPDS material that the company says dampens vibration.
While we couldn’t tell if this was the case on test rides, we did find the chamois comfortable, though quite thin. This is clearly designed with racers in mind.
