I have been riding these for about a month now and I have found them to be ok. They are super strechy and feel good under the butt while riding, but I do not like the pockets on these. The leg pockets are only held down by velcro and flap around in the wind, also the upper pockets holes are too big. They also feel funny around the legs when I am not riding and make me look kind of like I am waring a diaper (its the big pocket opening). Overall they do the job, but I see my self grabing for the other brands I have first, that do not cost $150. (swobo, raceface, woolies, etc.) I purchased the (M) and I usualy ware between a 32-34" waist. Hope this helps.
These are the best knickers I have ever had! I bought both colors so I can wear them more often. I live in knickers and have had many brands (cutter, cycle fixsation woolies, swobo, ext.) none fit, feel, move, or are as functional as these. I usualy wear 32-34" waist and the mediums are perfect! Best bang for the buck ever!
I am sure that these are grea for conventional MTB but i used these fixed and I would constantly pull out of these at starts on the lift motion. I do not like hitting my knees on my handle bars at all. I constantly would come out when i didn't want to. I changed to the Time Atac sx and tryed as hard as i could to duplicate this issue. I could not! Times are far better. Don't waist your money on the shimanos.
I just got these pants and I thought they might be too small in the waist because of the weird sizes. That was not the case at all. I usually ware 33-34 and the mediums are perfect. These pants are very light and stretchy, most comfortable pant/knicker I have worn thus far. I will check back for durability later once I have abused them for a while. Super stoked to go ride. Check these out,Great bang for the buck!
