poorly-placed pad

Reviewed by Ellie from Denver CO on Friday, May 23, 2008
First, the pros. This short fits well, dries quickly, and looks good. It is a classic tri short, so it's not heavily padded. This is typical of tri shorts because they're made to dry quickly, and the smaller pad is compromise between cushioning and fast-drying. However, the problem with this short is that the small chamois pad is really poorly placed. The pad doesn't extend far enough in the back and the result is that you end up sitting on the seams. This is really uncomfortable. I'll run in these shorts, but biking for more than an hour is too painful.
