difference between 300 and 500 is little thicker padding. antibacterial and antiodor is not present.
Purchased 500 Cycling Bibless Shorts - Black - 200 : XL, but shorts do not serve the purpose of padding and it is really painful to sit on the saddle for long as pads do not stay where they are supposed to stay. I believe it total waste of Rs. 1500/- I paid and I could have bought an ordinary shorts. I have done some long distances 94 Km, 144 km, and 200 km BRM with these shorts but they do not give the cushion. These should be modified or discontinued. P
Thank you for taking the time to give us your reviews. Apologies for the bad experience you have had with the product. The bibless shorts are to be used on short commutes inside the city/ to work etc where the cycling duration is around 2 hrs. If you are looking to do BRMs and long distances I would suggest you go for bib shorts. The bibs really help to hold the padding in place and it also is of a higher density which helps you stay on the saddle for a longer time. I can also tell you through experience (because I have done the 200, 300,400, 600BRMs) that you will have to change the combinations of your padding every 50-70kms if you plan to cycle continuously. By combinations I mean, First 100 Kms only bibshorts. Next 100 km bib shorts with saddle cover with bibshorts. After which remove saddle cover and change shorts. This will help to spread the pressure points evenly and cycle with a little comfort.

Can't go wrong for the money. Jewels are protected, that's all you need.
I bought these before I did my first long distance ride, not expecting them to last much longer than the ride due to the price. I have now done over 2000 miles in them (washed them once or twice) and the padding is only just starting to come lose on the inside.
Very snug fit as expected, padding on these are brilliant. Good for the price!
Great value and a comfortable pad for up to 90-min indoor trainer sessions
great value, good fit
I have a 78 cm waist, which is low end of medium on the size guide.
The medium shorts are way too small, practically cuts the blood off in my thighs, and the padding is not well shaped.
Thank you for your review on the 500 cycling shorts. I will let the product manager know to look into the sizing of the product in regards to the cuff on the leg. You can return the product in your local store as the product is unsuitable for you.

I bought these as my time in the saddle increased and the 300 were no longer providing the padding I needed. Although they are comfortable to wear, I find that the passing is not actually padding the exact area... It could very well be my riding position but I am slightly disappointed.... Still they are definitely an improvement from the 300...
We'll made and comfortable
Position of the pad is not ideal
