The Altura Progel Waist shorts are a great entry level short for commuters, road cyclists and leisure cyclists. They come with a built in Progel pad which is fantastic at relieving saddle pressure to give you hours of comfort in the saddle.
The Progel shorts will also help you stay fresh without feeling sweaty thanks to the material that wicks moisture away from your body. Other benefits include added visibility from the reflective hem gripper, and a secure fit thanks to the silicon print inside. These shorts are a step up from the Alutra Airstream with a better quality pad and better fit making them suitable for longer rides of 4+ hours.
- Recommended for rides of 4+ hours
- Highly breathable
- Altura Progel chamois pad

Why buy Altura?
Altura clothing and equipment is all designed in the UK specifically for the UK cycling market. They make some of the best value, and bestselling, performance cycle clothing on the market.
Altura has been one of our favourite clothing brands for years. Their gear isn't always the flashiest but it works well and it's great value for money. Altura's commuting jackets and jerseys are especially popular and are really well thought out for UK cyclists.
Unlike a lot of the Italian clothing brands the Altura stuff is sized for UK riders, so you don’t have to buy 3 sizes up to get a jersey you can fit in.
In the last couple of years Altura have started to add some more premium jerseys, shorts and jackets to their line-up and have become a little more daring with colours. At the core though the Altura range is where we look for great value, long lasting cycling gear.
