  • 10/19/2015 Best shorts I own

    5 Review Stars By Phil

    I just did Beach to Battleship. This was my first 140.6 distance race. I was concerned because despite the reviews these shorts were untested by me. My other pair of shorts would still leave me numb after mile 50 or so. I had no discomfort the whole 112. I am a bigger guy 230#. The pockets were easy access and the fit was perfect. I recommend these shorts to all. It was a game changer on the road. I passed several guys that were complaining about how much their seat hurt. Thank you. One of the best purchases I made this year!! Hands Down!!

  • 10/15/2015 So far, so good

    5 Review Stars By Fred F

    I purchased these shorts for long century or double century rides, after having issues with the quality of other high-end shorts (from Sugoi, Pearl Izumi, and others).

    Things that are different from biking shorts I'm used to: It has a drawstring (no big deal); it has a pocket on each side which can probably hold one gel each (fine); it has a pocket in the back which I guess is for a credit card and/or ID (fine); it rides about an inch shorter on the leg when riding, compared with other cycling shorts (takes some getting used to).

    It also seems to be very well constructed and not prone to issues where more things are showing than people want to see.

    So far I've used them on a few rides of about 40-80 miles, and they are doing great. No century with them yet, but they seem solid. I'm going to try them on a century, and assuming they continue to have no issues, may purchase another.

  • 9/24/2015 This are TRI shorts, not BIKE shorts!

    1 Review Stars By JC

    I am only giving this one star -- not because of the quality of the product -- although it does seem over priced --- but because it was improperly labeled as bike shorts. They are not bike shorts. They are tri shorts. Big difference!
    The TRI shorts appear to be good quality. I will keep them, just because I do triathlons and I need a new pair of tri shorts and returning them is too much of a hassle. Swim Outlet please be more precise in your product descriptions.

  • 9/20/2015 Great fitting bike shorts.

    5 Review Stars By kansas fast rider

    These shorts look a little different from the competition, I have owned many different brands some cheaper and some much more expensive but to date these are the most comfortable. After a few hundred miles of use the fabric is still looking good. I will be buying at least 2 more pairs in the future. Size large , normally wear 34/35 waist, these are a very good fit, also like pockets. My rides range from 2 to 4 hours on hilly roads. If you have been searching for comfortable well fitting bike shorts give these a try, yes they look a little different but you will like the comfort..

  • 1/13/2015 2nd pair in 6 years

    5 Review Stars By The Rock

    Used on long rides,bricks and race day
    Have had several races over the last 6 years
    They feel like a power pack when I put them on, pad is low profile comfy and durable,
    Legs don't roll,stay put,waist non prohibited,pockets are good,revealing,oh well.
    I couldn't afford them,a friend who I help improve his swim got them for me.
    The newer style aren't cheap and have different high tech materials
    looking forward to getting same wear and durability from them. My old ones are still good, have been machine washed and machine dried plenty and held up well.

    5 Review Stars By High-mileage

    No chaffing, comfortable, functionally-perfect. Have ridden 2500+ miles this year in them and no complaints. What more do you need?

  • 10/13/2014 Better than most of the competition!

    4 Review Stars By Seoras

    The cushioning is better than any shorts I have had but I still get sore on a ride of over 30 miles.  If this excellent chamoix were about one inch more in each direction I think it would be an A rather than a B+.

    5 Review Stars By G.

    Bought the Medium for a waist size of 30, following the sizing chart. It was too big! Had to return and get an S.
