Bicycle shorts are not just meant to be worn by professional bicyclists, if you want to hop on a biked and ride away for health reasons or simply because you like riding bikes, you must consider wearing the right kind of clothing to protect your body from long term hurt.

Cycling shorts are meant to sit on your skin and protect you so do not wear any underwear below them. Wearing an underwear underneath your cycling shorts is counter-productive as it just adds further seam lines that can cut down on blood flow and increase irritation by not absorbing sweat properly.  Padding is one of the most important components of bike shorts if not the most important. Make sure that the padding is thicker towards the center, good padded shorts will be able to absorb much of the shock and reduce the stress your body is putting on the perineum as you shift your weight while pedaling.

A thickened gel pad is preferable over foam if you are riding long distances as gel tends to last longer keeping its compression property intact.

Cycling shorts are meant to fit you perfectly while riding, this is achieved with spandex, a material that can stretch as per your body movement when pedaling. The polyester interlaced with the spandex wicks out dampness and lets your skin respire.

Great product for the price. Great price. Colors match my bicycle. The fit is snug but not uncomfortable, the chamois is soft and prevents chaffing. Stitching has held up well at the seams. The legs don’t ride up while cycling due to the non-slip ring at the end of each leg of these shorts on the inside. I Will certainly buy these again at this price.I weigh 230 lbs +/- fairly muscular at 6’1.5″ and i ordered the large (for my 36″ waist).

First impressions of these shorts with sizing advice Just received these shorts today. My waist measures 37 inches so I ordered a 2XL. It is a little big for me but since I wear spandex underwear underneath these shorts it seems to fit OK but a little loose around the bottom of my legs which might not bother me too much. I have not tested it out on a ride yet and that will be the real test of it’s quality,fit, and how it holds up. As others have said, sizing these shorts can be a little tricky so my advice for sizing would be buy an XL if you…

These are very nice quality; it’s very hard to pick the right … These are very nice quality; it’s very hard to pick the right size. Most of the cycling gear seems to be on the small side so I ordered it larger than I would normally but they came too large. They are excellent though.
