Love mine

(Casual/ Recreational) March 23, 2014

I bought mine at a cycling event and I love them. They fit well, the waist band is much more comfortable than any other that I've worn. My favorite part is the leg. No tight elastic to form that ugly leg bulge just above it. And they don't ride up like the elastic ones do. I've had mine for several seasons and done many rides of 60+ miles. They've held up great but the seat has finally worn through and become sheer. My only suggestion would be slightly thicker padding.

Pros
  • Comfortable
  • Durable
  • Good Fit
Cons
  • Not Enough Padding
Uses
  • Long Rides
  • Road Biking
  • Waist: Feels true to size
  • Length: Feels true to length

Not enough padding

(Casual/ Recreational) December 3, 2013

Padding is not very thick and it compressing too much,so I call these my "10" mile shorts since they do not provide enough relief for longer rides on the road bike. Waist is too big and legs are a bit loose so they ride up.

Pros
  • Durable
  • Warm
Cons
  • Inadequate Pockets
  • Not Enough Padding
  • Poor Fit
Uses
  • Commuting
  • Warm Weather
  • Waist: Feels too big
  • Length: Feels true to length
