really wanted to love this

(Casual/ Recreational) August 27, 2014

I bought a cargo bike to lug my son around on and then started using the same bike to commute to work. I had never bought specialized bike pants before because I am not a super sporty person and don't care for the look. But all that biking was being hard on tender bits and I decided to try out some padding. I bought these because I love my wool base layers and prefer it as a performance fiber, and they seemed like they'd be a great liner. I generally wear a size 16 and have a high waist hip differential and big thighs. I bought an XL. The fit on these after washing is too tight in the thigh area and much too loose on the waist (plus the rise is pretty low, and I say that as someone with a short torso). It could be that I am just too big for their intended user but I thought I'd give them a try anyway. Sadly, I had the same problem other reviewers have had, where the legs ride up like crazy as they get stretched out and end up chafing like crazy. They need to be a little longer maybe, or have some sort of gripper on them to work on my body. The padding is thinner than the Craft shorts I bought, so it is better for shorter rides (I think it's fine for my 6 mile commute). The fabric itself is awesome and breathable and I wish they performed better.

Pros
  • Breathable
  • Comfortable
  • Dries Quickly
  • Good Padding
  • Warm
Cons
  • Chafes
  • Poor Fit
Uses
  • Commuting
  • Waist: Feels too big
  • Length: Feels true to length

So close to greatness

(Avid Cyclist) July 9, 2014

Slipping these on is delightful - the fit and fabrics feel fantastic! Then you pedal to work, noticing that the legs ride up and things start to stretch and sag. The pad is sufficient to cushion a bit of road noise, but you're happy it's only a few miles in the saddle. You're quite pleased with the quick-drying comfort while you're at work all day (and your colleagues appreciate that you don't smell from your exertions), but come the ride home, the pad is shifting around a bit, the legs have become almost non-existent due to riding up, and chafing happens. You diligently hang them up to dry, but the next day they're even worse. A run through the washer (cold water, delicate cycle) later it's like they're brand new again, but as soon as you begin to sweat they're sagging once again.
Giro, if you'd add just 3% lycra to these, they would be the most amazing things that ever happened to commuting. As it stands, they're a tolerable option for short rides, but don't live up to expectations.

For reference: 5'8" / 150lbs, muscular/athletic build - 29" waist & 39" hips, purchased size medium.

Pros
  • Breathable
  • Comfortable
  • Dries Quickly
Cons
  • Chafes
  • Not Enough Padding
  • Sags
  • Stretches Out Quickly
Uses
  • Commuting

Excellent undershort

(Avid Cyclist) May 17, 2014

I wore these on a 40 mile bike ride in 80° F weather in North Texas and I was pleasantly surprised. They were very comfortable and breathable and while they don't offer a lot of padding and have a thin chamois, I found that I didn't have any chaffing or seat sores after 40 miles. I was only sore from the ride itself but I would definitely wear these again in all temperature. They have a low profile and the waist band is nice and snug. I was looking for something to wear under street clothes on a long international bike tour and I think these will work. I'm 5'2", 110 lbs and an XS works for me.

Pros
  • Breathable
  • Comfortable
  • Dries Quickly
  • Durable
  • Good Fit
  • Good Padding
Cons
Uses
  • Cold Weather
  • Commuting
  • Long Rides
  • Road Biking
  • Warm Weather

Ideal liner short

(Avid Cyclist) May 14, 2014

I have been searching for merino liner shorts to use in fall, winter and spring, for commuting and (especially) for long, cold-weather bicycle tours. I prefer merino in cool weather because it does not leave my skin clammy when I sweat. I prefer merino in general because it is soft and does not stink. I have used these several times on my commute this spring, and they deliver. I can't wait to use them for fall touring!

Be aware that the chamois is on the thin side. While it works well with chamois cream to reduce the likelihood of chafing, it provides little cushioning for muscles and bones.

Pros
  • Breathable
  • Comfortable
  • Dries Quickly
  • Good Fit
  • Warm
Cons
Uses
  • Cold Weather
  • Commuting
  • Long Rides
  • Road Biking
  • Wet Weather
  • Waist: Feels true to size
