Question Skeletools impact shorts - weird chemical smell?

Hey all

Just got a pair of new Skeletools impact shorts in the mail. There's a noxious chemical odor from the foam that actually makes my eyes burn too. My instinct is that it's not healthy, but the company says it's like a new car smell that will go away with time.

Anybody else have this issue and how long did it take to go away? Any clue as to what chemical could be causing that odor? The label on the item only lists materials used to make the spandex short, but not the foam.

That said, the Skeletools look like they can take a serious beating. I haven't had the chance to actually test them riding though.

Thanks!
