    Details

    Don't be a damsel in distress.

    Club Ride Apparel was born in the mountains of Sun Valley, Idaho. A ski resort and the Old West rolled into one, Sun Valley has miles and miles of singletrack to test the prowess of Club Ride's apparel. Some days, though, you only get to ride into town to run errands. For these rides, where you don't want to stroll around in Lycra, Club Ride Apparel's Damsel Women's Shorts fit discretely beneath your favorite shorts or skirt for comfort on and off the saddle.

    The lightweight, stretchable Lycra construction of the Damsel shorts is non-binding and conforming. Accordingly, the shorts slip smoothly under your shorts or skirt with no bulk. And as a welcome result, the shorts remain undetectable from the outside.

    In terms of fit, you'll find that the Damsel shorts were designed to fit like boy shorts. However, unlike the aforementioned, Club Ride added a wide elastic waistband in order to hold them in place comfortably.

    Club Ride Apparel used a CoolMax chamois in the Damsel. This insert is smaller than a traditional road chamois, but it still uses high-density foam instead of the more standard do-nothing fleece. In turn, the insert provides optimal support for your sit bones and soft tissue. Additionally, the CoolMax covering provides friction-free comfort, while rapidly wicking moisture away from the skin.

    The Club Ride Apparel Damsel Shorts are available in the color Raven and in five sizes from X-Small to X-Large.

    Not bunchy

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    My wife says most bike shorts feel like she's wearing a diaper. Big and bulky and bunchy. She love's the way these Club Ride liners have a smaller, thinner pad, as well as a shorter inseam.

    Ehhh...

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium

    Definitely not my favorite chamois. I tried on both M & L; and for the padding to fit where it was supposed to, I kept the M. However, the leg openings are pretty tight around my thighs and they roll up which is annoying and not very comfortable. The padding is minimal and I only wear these if all my other chamois are dirty and I'm not going to be on the bike for very long. In hindsight I wish I would have returned them.

    they're grrreat!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    I'm attaching a photo that actually looks like the pair that I own / purchased from Backcountry, because there are a lot of conflicting product images going on up there... Let me preface by saying that these look & fit like granny panties: ie, mid- to high-rise, lots of coverage in the caboose area, less boyshort-y in the leg than the photo suggests but definitely short enough to wear under whatever you desire (in my early days of riding I would often wear them under running shorts with a 2-3" inseam.) After over 500 miles in the mountain bike saddle while wearing this chamois, I can definitely say I'm pretty happy with 'em! They have more padding than other chamois shorts I've tried on, which surprised me, and I haven't experienced any irritation from the material like the previous reviewer mentioned. I am no chamois expert, but these have been working out great for me.

    they're grrreat!

    Ouch!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs small

    These are made out of a strange material that feels rubbery when I sweat and irritates my skin. I ordered a medium -- the size all of my other liner shorts are--and found these to be too small. The legs of the short rolled up into the creases of my leg during the ride and aggravated skin already irritated from the strange material. Chamois is minimal, but prevents chaffing in the nether-regions. However, my legs were so uncomfortable, I could not wait to take them off.
