Activate! This simple cycling short from Terry allows you to move comfortably all day. The 8.5” inseam is a great length, not too long or short. Stretchy yet never constricting, the waistband and legs are gripper-free. Flat seams and a plush chamois round out this beautiful basic.

Best women's cycling shorts

(Casual/ Recreational) April 2, 2014

Best pair of cycling shorts I've ever tried on! Out of all the brands, Terry seems to be the only ones that are true to their sizing charts. These specific shorts are perfect; I especially appreciate the wide waistband and the fact that the legs do not have silicone (because who wants "sausage legs"?) I use these shorts in the summer, and in the winter I wear them over tights. Whatever the season, these shorts are comfy for long rides.

Pros
  • Breathable
  • Comfortable
  • Dries Quickly
  • Durable
  • Good Fit
  • Good Padding
Cons
Uses
  • Long Rides
  • Warm Weather
  • Waist: Feels true to size

embarrassing choice

(Avid Cyclist) July 29, 2013

On the 5th day I wore these shorts my male cycling companions kindly told me they could see me through my shorts. Since I was on RAGBRAI with 2 days left of riding I was not pleased. I had ordered these just in time to wear for RAGBRAI, but because of a packing mix-up these were my only pair of riding shorts.

Pros
  • Comfortable
  • Dries Quickly
  • Breathable
Cons
  • Fabric Coverage
Uses
  • Waist: Feels true to size
  • Length: Feels true to length

Quality shorts at a fair price

(Avid Cyclist) July 18, 2013

As a frugal cyclist, I always look for the lowest-priced product that will get the job done. I'll pay more for quality, of course, but I have my limits, and the cost of some cycling gear is above my budget. These were the lowest price Terry cycling shorts offered, and I've had good luck with Terry shorts in the past, so I decided to try them. I really like the leg bands (wide band without elastic or silicone) since they don't give the "sausage leg" look, the chamois is a nice medium size/shape and thickness, and I like the non-shiny fabric. I have a little bit of a tummy so would prefer the waistband be a little higher; that is my only slight con of these shorts -- they'd fit gals without much midriff/belly fat best.

Pros
  • Dries Quickly
  • Durable
  • Good Padding
  • Comfortable
  • Good Fit
Cons
Uses
  • Mountain Biking
  • Warm Weather
  • Road Biking
  • Long Rides
  • Waist: Feels true to size
  • Length: Feels true to length

LOVE these shorts!

(Casual/ Recreational) July 16, 2012

I just did a 5-day 260-mile ride that I DIDN'T train for. My biggest worry, other than discomfort in my neck/shoulders was that my rump would be very sore since I had no 'seat' time. Prior to the ride I bought these shorts since it was time for an upgrade. Believe it or not, I did not experience one day of soreness. The shorts were fantastic, comfortable, well-padded, and the only thoughts I had about my bum were ones of sheer happiness that it turned out to be the least of my worries!

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

  • Comfortable
  • Good Fit
  • Breathable
Cons
Uses
  • Mountain Biking
  • Waist: Feels too big
  • Length: Feels true to length

Super comfy

(Avid Cyclist) January 4, 2012

The low-cut waistband is super comfy, especially compared to most of my other cycling shorts. They are not as constricting as many other well-known brands. I also like the wide thigh bands.

Service comments: Service was excellent, as always!

Pros
  • Comfortable
Cons
Uses
  • Spinning Class
  • Waist: Feels true to size

(Avid Cyclist) November 4, 2011

Service comments: This is the 3rd time I have ordered items from Team Estrogen - shipping is fast and reliable

Great value

(Avid Cyclist) August 18, 2011

I'd like to have top-of-the-line Terry cycling bottoms for every ride, but I just can't afford it. These are a comfortable, affordable alternative for casual rides (haven't tried them on long days). I wish they were just a tad longer in the inseam, but it's not a big problem. As another plus, they dry fast (unlike the Terry T shorts, which are very comfortable but take forever to dry), so I may try them for overnight touring.

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

A Sure Thing

(Casual/ Recreational) May 13, 2011

This is my first Terry clothing purchase. I was nervous about buying shorts without trying them on but the sizing chart was reliable, and the description accurate. Nice fabric against the skin, nice flattering length, good padding, affordable price, and no gripping at the waist or binding at the thigh.

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