Edna says: “I have both the shorts and the knickers, and I wear them more than any other shorts or knickers that I own. I love the soft fabric, but I especially love the v-shape to the front waist. There's no feeling of being squeezed around the middle. They fit just snugly enough that they don't shift around while I'm riding - but the fabric isn't too compressive. I can wear them all day long and never feel like I "just have to get these things off".”

Love these!

(Casual/ Recreational) July 11, 2013

I am a recreational rider..meaning weekends...did 30+ miles my first day wearing these shorts. I was skeptical that they would creep up without the leg grippers. They did not. They were so comfortable. The waistband was great..high in the back and the material was perfect riding in high 80s with humidity. Worth the price. I usually price shop but would think about buying another pair of these for sure!

Very soft and comfortable

(Casual/ Recreational) April 24, 2013

I took my measurements and ordered a large according to the size chart, but they were much too big - actually a litle baggy. A medium was much better (and the exchange was very easy, as always!).
These shorts are very soft and comfortable. Compared to other shorts/capris I own, these feel a good deal less compressive.

Pros
  • Comfortable
  • Breathable
Cons
Uses
  • Road Biking
  • Long Rides
  • Waist: Feels too big
  • Length: Feels true to length

LOVE These Shorts

(Avid Cyclist) August 11, 2012

These shorts are really nice! The waistband is so comfortable due to lack of elastic. The length is good for me as a 5'3" person. I'm not into short shorts. I would definitely recommend these and would like to get another pair.

Pros
  • Good Fit
  • Good Padding
  • Comfortable
Cons
Uses
  • Road Biking
  • Long Rides
  • Waist: Feels true to size
  • Length: Feels true to length

Too stretchy, weird chamois

(Casual/ Recreational) August 10, 2012

Weird fit for me; waist too stretchy and chamois too much like a diaper. Going back.

Pros
Cons
  • Poor Fit
  • Too Much Padding
Uses
  • Waist: Feels too big
  • Length: Feels true to length

In over a decade of cycling, the BEST!

(Avid Cyclist) June 25, 2012

I fell in love with the Venus knickers, also by Sheila Moon, so you can imagine how thrilled I was to find the Athena shorts. Both Athena and Venus are BY FAR the most comfortable cycling bottoms that I have EVER owned.

Pros
  • Good Fit
  • No pinchy leg elastic
  • Great waistband design
  • Good Padding
  • Breathable
  • Comfortable
  • Durable
Cons
Uses
  • Road Biking
  • Long Rides

WHAT A FIND!

(Casual/ Recreational) May 17, 2012

I was on the hunt for the perfect cycling shorts. After trying 8 different brands I found these to be the BEST SHORTS! Ultra comfortable, and they move with you not against you. The chamois is the best one and the most comfortable. I'm so glad my hunt is over.

Pros
  • Good Padding
  • Comfortable
  • Breathable
  • Good Fit
Cons
Uses
  • Waist: Feels true to size
  • Length: Feels true to length

A must have!

(Avid Cyclist) June 18, 2011

I love these shorts, fits true to size (don't order up a size). Very comfortable. NO awful elastic at the bottom of the legs or tight elastic/draw-string at waist - what a relief. Excellent for long-distance rides (or anytime). I also own a pair of Sheila Moon cycling knickers. Awesome.

Pros
  • Good Padding
  • Dries Quickly
  • Durable
  • Good Fit
  • Comfortable
Cons
Uses
  • Commuting
  • Road Biking
  • Long Rides
  • Waist: Feels true to size
