frequent cycling in warm/hot weather (rides of 3 hours or more).
These bibless cycling shorts have elastic band at the waist and thigh hems to hold them in place. These shorts' triple-density ergonomic pad with gel inserts offers excellent comfort.
I wear the shorts on 200 kilometer ride, it was good comfort and I finished in style.
Found these shorts to be very helpful for my long rides over 200KMs
very good shorts at very good price...using it for last 4 months and very happy. i ride 4-5 times a week and on sunday go for 200 or 300km. never face any irritation
I bought this for 100 mile ride (Strava Challenge) and boy, it was amazing. I was riding for over seven hours and didn't feel any discomfort whatsoever. The length of these are shorter than the other shorts in the similar category, but the comfort is awesome. This one is worth every penny and its a bang for the buck. Am looking forward to a sale so that I can pick couple more of these.
I picked this one up during one of the crazy sale, and boy it came handy when I did the BRM recently. Being on the saddle for 9hrs and overall 12.30hrs, it was just awesome to be wearing this. No nappy rashes, no groin pain. No saddle soreness. Nothing at all. Just that the shorts is a bit short, not as long as the other variety sold by btwin. So if you are worrying tanning of the leg, suggest wear a knee warmer to cover the legs.
I was stunned to pick it up during the last Super Sunday. Was excited to see it till it was delivered. the first look and feel of the fabric was rather disappointing but the gel caught my attention. I decided to try it on. I loved the fit of the shorts. I had just started loving the shorts. I was on my cycle in a flash. It did make a whole world of difference in terms of comfort and reduced pressure on the seat. I did use it for more than an hour to kind of assess the shorts. I must say it is just too good. An amazing cycling accessory. I am waiting for my next long ride lasting more than 3 hours as indicated and I am confident about it. The only drawback is that it is slightly short in length and tight at my thighs. All in all, I loved it. Gel and material of the shorts are awesome. It can get a little suffocated at the thighs.
Very comfortable and worth the money.Has helped the long rides very comfortable
The Gel padding is great. Extremely comfortable and it does reduce the pressure exerted on the groin and Bum. My shortish 8km ride with this appears to be a promising companion for the long time spent on the saddle. The elastic on the waist is wide and appears to be of better quality compared to the earlier models. At last Decathlon gave a cycling shorts which appears to be handsfree! Though I am not sure if it will last 2 years as guaranteed.
Now the Bad
The shorts is really short, just reaches half my thigh. If you are taller than 5.2 or have a long femur bone, it will barely cover your thighs. The elastic used to hold the shorts at the thigh is the same cheapo stuff used on the 600 rupee version so at every pedal stroke the shorts tend to move up
If you are happy to show off your things, yes go for it by all means. For the rest it is good as a cycling underwear and doesn't qualify as a mainstream cycling shorts!
Comfortable shorts with good padding. I was going to go for the 500 but they material seemed to be a little thin compared with these. I guess you get what you pay for and I'm glad I chose these. Check the sizing though - cut a little small.
No pocket. Sizing on the small side.
compared to other shorts in the same price range, these are fantastic. Wore 2 pairs on a 4 day trip and threw my other (different brand) pair in the bin!
well made, padding in the right places
Careful on the sizing, cut on the small side.
