Overstock fabric. With Canari triathlon cycling shorts you can swim, run and ride in comfort. Breathable moisture-wicking shorts have interior drawstring waist and grippy leg hems to keep them in place.

I like the drawstring and the lightly padded crotch. I will use these for my recumbent bike and shorter rides on my upright. I prefer an 8 panel short for comfort, but liked the price on these and it is hard to find shorts for the recumbent that don't have too much padding.

Not for me...These shorts ride low waist but not too low and the fabric is light, seat pad is minimal.I have an athletic build and I did not like the fit on my legs...tight grips on thighs just didn't have a great look...sorry to have to return.

The medium is none too big. My first pair of tri pants. I like the less padding, but the back side is much shorter like a regular pair of shorts, unlike bike short that come up higher on the back side.

Okay - I admit. I'm not a huge fan of Canari, so I set the bar pretty low. But the price couldn't be beat and I always am looking for a good pair of tri shorts. I have not yet swum in these shorts - but I've done a few bike/run workouts - both solo and bricks. The fit is nice - true to size. I'm a solid size 12 and the L fits (other brands, I can go to M, but with Canari - the L seems to work). The pad is bigger than I would have expected for tri shorts, but not overly so - and still not so big that they get in the way running. They are still too new to risk using for my HIM, but I've done a 30-mile ride with no issues. I am pleasantly surprised by these Canari shorts.

This was a great price on a lightweight pair of tri bike shorts, the padding was a bit different than a previous pair I had purchased but they still fit well, have nice grippy hems that aren't too tight and I LOVE the drawstring waist. They are true to size.

I have been mountain biking for over a decade. Canari are my favorite brand of bike shorts. I have Pearl Izumi's that are more padded, but the Canari's give a lighter padding in all the right places, and I find myself less saddle sore when wearing a Canari bike short, than any other brand. I have several pairs. These delivered, just as I knew they would. I intend to wear them for my next sprint tri.

I cycle to the boathouse and to the gym, each about 9 miles each way, and then stay in my shorts to row or work out, so having tri shorts, with their thinner padding, is perfect. As the description says, the leg hems are very grippy and a bit tight, but I don't really notice it once I get moving. Also, I've never understood why cycling shorts and others made of spandex with their elastic waist have a drawstring in the waist. The strings just get in the way.

Doing my first sprint tri next month and I wanted to buy shorts that wouldn't break the back AND would do all of the following:
- easy to swim in
- quick to dry
- long enough to protect my thighs from chaffing on the bike
- a little padding for the bike but not too much that would hamper my run
And so far in my training, I'm pretty happy with them! As a size reference I'm 5'1" and 130lbs and I got a medium.
