Great for Long Rides
I really like these shorts. They have a chamois that goes down a little further on the sides, which is where I usually need more padding. The chamois is a little stiffer than other shorts I have, which makes for odd walking, but it makes up for it in performance. I did not go numb as early in the ride as I usually do, and it made for a much more comfortable ride. They are also short enough that I didn't feel the need to roll up my shorts! The material is compressive and supportive without giving me the 'sausage' effect. These are my new favorites! They do have a drawstring which I promptly removed so it wouldn't rub or chaffe - I don't really see the need for a drawstring on shorts with elastic. A great fitting short, not too low in front, which I appreciate.
