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 biking shorts GREAT biking shorts, just the medium was a bit too large for me, returned it for a small and they fit/feel/conform WONDERFULLY! I don’t sweat down there, its perfectly padded cushioning is so worth it. GREAT PRICE TOO!

Good padding!! I bought the medium for myself. However the legs were a little slack for me and I therefore let my husband have them! He said the padding was great and they fit him well. I have reordered a small size for myself and I am hopeful that the legs will be a better fit for me without the waist being too tight!!!
