Great fitting comfortable shorts. This is the lightly padded version. (I have both) They are comfortable and the padding is enough for all but the longest rides if your bike is properly fitted. A half century on the bike is not a problem in these shorts and I have run a couple of half marathons in t... Read More

    I have several different makes and models of triathlon shorts and these are among my favorites. Padding for cycling is very hard to notice while running, but gets the job done while riding. I have no sense of shame, so I don't mind the tight fit, and the compression is great on a long run. Leg hems have rubber sewn in so the legs didn't creep on me while cycling or runnning. While I'm sure there are better shorts out there, I doubt there are many at this price point, and for a recreational athlete like myself I can't see spending $100+ on a pair of shorts that won't go out and run the race by themselves. Next time I'm in the market for tri shorts, these will likely be my go-to choice.

    Have not used while swimming, but did a bike/run brick, and they are great on the bike, but not so much on the run. The crotch to top of short area is very long and reached just above my belly button. While running they sagged a little from the crotch, and my [...] was showing, which I'm sort of used to, but was quite noticeable against the color. Overall, they fit great on the bike, but I may be looking for a different short for my upcoming tri.
    • Cons: Long from Crotch to top
    • Describe Yourself: Collegiate/Pro
    • Pros: Breathable, Comfortable, Good Padding
