In creating Moto-Skiveez, I’ve enlisted the design expertise of the TMF research facility in Verona, Italy. TMF is renowned for the quality and innovation they’ve applied to creating bicycling pads. They have a research center inside the company for the purpose of developing original and innovative solutions to improve riding comfort and performance. TMF has been at the forefront of design for more than thirty years. Their proprietary process utilizes thermal imaging camera systems placed between the rider and the saddle to measure body temperature in the prostatic/perineal area. They also use computerized sensors that reveal pressure applied at the points of contact. This helps determine the correct type of material to be incorporated into the pad. Moto-Skiveez has employed this technology to create three unique pads, each targeted to a specific style of motorcycle riding. Each unique pad is sewn into a high quality undergarment designed to be worn next to the skin like regular briefs. This base garment is comprised of two different fabrics. The first is a fabric was chosen to provide moisture wicking. The second is a mesh fabric selected to facilitate breathability. The use of the different combination of fabrics creates a base garment that is optimized for moisture management and breathability. The best product is one that achieves the correct balance between comfort and functionality for your style of riding. Comfort requires protection and resistance against irritation. Functionality requires breathability, moisture management and body temperature management. Achieving balance between comfort and functionality requires developing the optimal form and then using the best materials. Regardless of what or how you ride, I hope you enjoy your Moto-Skiveez.
