Yes, that's the pad I have on my Clima bibs. I did not realize that they changed the cover of the pad this year. They could improve their website by providing clear pictures of the pad for every model.

Interesting comment on the Dottore Pro pad. I actually find that pad better higher up in the taint area. I mostly ride in an aggressive position, mostly in the drops, so I prefer a pad with more targeted comfort in gooch. The Dottore Pro works better for me in that regard, for some reason. YMMV
I was suprised too, because I thought the latest version of the Clima had your pad style.

The difference on the Pro pad length in the front is based solely on my visual impression (and comparing it with the Clima side by side in the store). But I couldn't try it on as they smallest size they had was XL :)

I'll try it as soon as I find it on sale for a good price somewhere. In the meantime, I've just ordered a last-in-stock Dottore X (I really like that one) :)

Pad on the pro is smaller and firmer compared with EI pad. The outer fabric is like a "suede" feeling material and not glued so , it works a bit under you.

By "smaller" do you also mean shorter in the front? I mean, not reaching so far forward?

No. At the front has a good reach and very good perineal support. Very good to stay long time on the drops position.
Smaller than EI regarding width and thickness (ischium) but more firmer. Did a 60km ride and I liked it a lot. Tomorrow will test it in a bigger +150km ride. Generally the gregarius is my "workhorse" bibs :)

Does anyone have the info. about bicep size of the XS/S UV arm protector?

I need a pair smaller than castelli UPF50+ in S and without the silcone band.

OK. I got reply from Q36.5. The bicep circumference of XS/S is 23.5 cm. It will definetly move on my arm...

I already love the Gregarious chamois, but your description makes a compelling argument for the pro pad. Even firmer is even better!

It's my pick everytime now (not if they are drying out from the day before). The concistency of the pad, the panels, the quality on the details... everything works so
well!

Is there any difference between gregarius pro vs ultra or did just re-named it ?

From this test, they look identical (i.e. just renamed) https://www.bikeradar.com/reviews/cloth ... rts-review
