Chamois too thick and…

Chamois too thick and rough finishes/seams => friction with the skin, generates irritation. Too bad because the cut of the shorts is very good

Weak for people with narrow waists and wide hips

I bought the shorts a size larger because when I tried them on in the S-ki store, the inner shorts with inserts were too tight. Honestly, I'm a bit disappointed. While the padded shorts fit great, the outer shorts hang on me like a potato sack because the waist adjustment is practically non-existent. If someone has wide hips and a narrow waist, these shorts will not work well. I would prefer to have a pocket on the side, but I don't complain about the back pocket in these shorts, it easily holds my phone. I have no doubts about the durability of the material, it is really nice for forest trips. I have no objections to the inner shorts.


They fit as they should, the cycling insert is comfortable and fulfills its function, the material of the shorts looks like it will last, the length is just right.

shorts at the top used…

top shorts used for a week of cycling comfort shorts, the skin dries quickly, no overheating the top back pocket for the phone and the cni a small side pocket would be a plus to put change in during breaks supply runs

Very good 3 in 1 bike shorts

Very good bike shorts. The fleece part comes off so it can be used under something else (capri pants, pants for other seasons). Ditto the shorts can be used alone. Very happy with my purchase !

What I was looking for for long bike rides

Finally a nice pair of shorts that are comfortable and beautiful for walking, but also and above all very useful for bike rides even with the most uncomfortable saddles. However, I also recommend it to those who have a comfortable saddle for slightly longer excursions.

Particularly pleasant to wear even in high heat

I was looking for shorts...

I was looking for women's shorts for mountain biking. In the end, the integrated shorts tighten the thighs too much and hinder freedom of movement. I bought pants suitable for mountain biking and am more comfortable.

Everything as expected
