Whether you’re pedalling over the Alpine passes, across the Basque country, or somewhere closer to home; you might as well do it with some comfortable underwear on.
There’s no point in donning all your high-tech cycling gear if you’re wearing a pair of cotton undies underneath it all, especially for a long day in the saddle.
Kepler padded boxers feature the natural technical properties of merino, with the added comfort of an Italian-made chamois to keep you pedaling in comfort all day long.
Made of PU HLC, the foam padding is designed to go the distance, retaining its elasticity, strength, and breathability. Stitch-free padding removes abrasion points, and the hot rolling attachment technique ensures that the padding stays breathable.
The Kepler range uses beautiful, ultrafine merino for a luxuriously comfortable next-to-skin feel.
With thermoregulatory and anti-microbial properties, merino wool is more than a match for day-in, day-out use across the temperatures in changeable mountain conditions, help you to stay fresh, comfortable, and protected no matter what the weather decides.

Good for bike touring
I used these for multi-day bike tours. The merino wool helps them from getting smelly and the padding is substantial. For a minimal weight and price, this product is a good for value for bike trips.
Great quality and price
I originally purchased these for commuting but found that there was too much padding for when off the bike, however they are proving to be a superb undershort for when mountain biking or wearing baggy shorts for a longer ride. The quality of the pad and stitching is very high and I would definitely recommend them to anyone who is looking for a pair of merino cycling boxers
Keep away from moths
I've used two pairs of these over the last year and have been generally happy with them save for the slight problem that moths have munched their way through one pair leaving them like a string vest. On long bike packing trips you can wash and rotate them daily as they dry pretty quickly on the tri bars, even the pad only really needs a few hours of sunshine and wind. On one of the pairs the wool has started to pull away from the pad a little so some running repairs will be necessary. Comfort is good though under MTB shorts
Not so good
I bought them to have a padded underwear with my mtb shorts for travels. You know, when you need something good to ride AND to walk with around, feeling decently dressed, and lycra is not the right option.
This boxer is ok for riding, but the pad is too thick, or I could argue that merino fabric just can't stretch the pad in a way that it's well positioned. So when you walk with them you get an embarassing sensation, like you have an uncomfortable diaper. Would not buy again.
