Hello. In terms of thickness, the Gel Touring
and All Day pads are very similar though the Gel Touring shorts have a little bit more density because of the gel component. Additionally, our Elite
shorts use a different type of gel padding from the Gel Touring shorts but all 3 of these options are great for multi-hour rides or long days in the saddle. They are all very supportive and feel great. Together all 3styles make up the thicker side of the spectrum, whereas options like our Top Shelf
shorts are more in the middle and our Pro
shorts would be at the other side with less padding.
More information about the Elite Pad
and Gel Touring Pad
can be seen at those links directly.
I hope that this helps, but please let us know if you have any questions at all and we'd be more than happy to help in any way that we can: 1-800-783-8326 or email@example.com.
