SELECT Levitate Chamois

SELECT Levitate Chamois

SELECT Levitate Chamois

Based on the same design philosophy as the more premium PRO and ELITE, this chamois pad delivers incredible performance at a more accessible price point. The key difference is that it’s cut from a single layer of medium-density material, with a thicker cross-section providing comfortable support to the most high-pressure areas. An integrated boundary layer keeps soft, fast-drying fabric next to the skin to minimize friction. This chamois punches above its weight, delivering a ride on par with most mid-range offerings.


The Levitate family represents our latest innovation in chamois technology. By combining a multi-density Suspension Core™, super-soft 1:1® Boundary Layer top sheet, and seamless Infinite Edge™ transition, the Levitate lets you float through road and trail chatter so you’ll never bottom out.


Cycling is repetitive, so we use high stretch materials, soft face fabrics, and an innovative floating top layer to smooth the movement between your body and the saddle.


While riding, a considerable amount of weight is concentrated on the sit bones, which are about the size of a quarter. Our suspension core design distributes this pressure evenly across a wider area to prevent hot spots and improve long-distance comfort.


We choose specialized, highly breathable layers to allow moisture to move freely away from your body, maintaining skin health and a chafe-free riding experience.
