Comfortable cycling shorts.

I wish it covered my butt more!

Amazing padding for this price point. I just wish it had a slightly higher waist band as when you're leaning over cycling it rides down a little too much.

Excellent bang for the buck!

I needed a second shorts for my indoor bike and I ended up getting this one as the other model I was after didn't had my size. These are so comfy! It became my primary cycling shorts! Only comment is to the sizing, it is slightly smaller than what I regularly wear. Not too much, just a bit.

Excellent Shorts amazing value

Very comfortable cycling shorts and amazing value including the shopping costs to Perth. The shorts grip to you but dont feel tight. At first (with most cycle shorts) the padding is quite hard and not as comfortable but with every wash it gets softer and end up being very comfortable.. The waist band feels slightly lower than other shorts but still high enough. Will buy some more in time.

These arn’t great, the padding on the shirts provide zero to none suppport, I’ve worn these on a 6mile ride and a 35+ mile ride, neither of these rides the shorts supported.
