This allows for a good balance of grip and natural feeling. The final result is a beautiful texturizes microfiber, very elegant and yet technical, a perfect match to the unique 4V Design style.
The inner padding material is the secret behind the unparalleled comfort of the 4V Design straps. It is a combination of two high performance foams to create a unique mix of comfort and durability. The yellow foam is a memory foam used on professional running shoes. It offers a great comfort and exceptional adaptability. The anthracite foam guarantees stability and structure for increased durability. It is normally used on motorbike leather suits and outdoor booths.
The padding features a unique thick rounded shape that, guarantees an unsurpassed comfort. Thanks to this exclusive design, it is the padding that comes in contact with the shoulder, while the pressure coming from the leather edges is minimized. This design guarantees a perfect weight distribution and avoids areas of local pressure that may cause redness and irritation.
