Invest in a better biking short

It is ok for shorter trips. The padding is not great. I should have bought the one with the bib as this keeps slipping down at the back.

Good but the rise is too low

Bought these for my husband - on trying them on it was evident that they were too low around his waist which when he's bending over means that they are too low on his back. Had to be returned

Very poor quality

I bought these in France , they fitted fine in the store . After only three days of wear they went extremely baggy, it started first with the very thin thigh strip , then the buttock area went so baggy I was constantly having to pull them up. I can't wear them now unless I bought braces Very disappointed with the quality as in the past even the cheaper Decathlon brand shorts are still going fine In my opinion don't buy these.

Good cycling shorts

Van Rysel Quality All Over it

Have been using cheaper £20 padded shorts for years. Big mistake. These shorts are making the ride much more comfortable. 👍

Good Shorts

Nice conforable shorts, best feature is the pockets you get on both side good to hold your phones, candy bars, etc. A bit pricey though

Stitching Came Off After 1 Use..

The stiching came off from one side just after single use.

Not Suitable For Rides Above 100 Km

Bought this short after going thru a lot of reviews. But just not worth. I used it once for a 75 k ride. After 60 km or so , shaffing starts and Sit bone start paining. Fit is very good though at thighs and seat. But at waist line it was ok before the wash. Immediately after durga was (gentle hand wash using mild detergent) the waist now has become much loose. Some serious design improvement needed. Or may b i received a defective piece. Disappointed .

Nice and excellent product

How our rc500 cycling shorts were designed

The story of the design phase for our Exposure cycling shorts.From observations, field tests, and all the way through the design process:FR:

New anatomical pad

The RC500 cycling shorts come with a new ”anatomical” chamois pad. The central seam lets the pad fold. This construction technology ensures the perfect fit and stability in the saddle. It has been designed for the male anatomy, and its stretchy layers let it follow the body's movements as you ride.

Breathable high-density foam

The chamois pad is made from a unique combination of materials offering the type of protection needed on your long rides. The pad has a protective, high-density 265 lb/m³ foam insert under the sit bones and the entire undercarriage. The top layer of fabric, which is in direct contact with the skin, is made from spandex and brushed polyester threads to prevent rubbing and irritation. All of the layers are breathable and wick perspiration.
