The Troy Lee Designs LPS 5605 Shorts protect you from crashes, and from more ordinary things, like your saddle. The LPS 5605 shorts combine a regular chamois short with a foam padded crash short to simplify your setup and make you more comfortable. You’ll find impact pads on the outside of the hips and thighs, as well as on the inside of the thigh (think top tube impact). Inside the short, you’ll find a chamois that reduces friction and abrasion during pedaling. It’s all sewn to a four-way-stretch fabric that moves with you, not matter what kind of body English you’re throwing down.
- Impact protection pads on outer and inner thighs and hips

- Q & A
Good comfortable protection
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fits nicely under my riding shorts and seems to have pads in the right places. Not sure about durability or protection since I've only ridden with them 3x and haven't wrecked yet
Save some skin
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
When I first took these under shorts out of the package I was a little surprised by what seemed as lack of protection. I could see there was protective padding but I expected it to be a bit more substantial.
It turns out that these are the most comfortable protective liners I've worn, and they protect you pretty well. I had a nice slide out on some loose rocky stuff and landed right on my thigh/hip and these things definitely saved some skin. A worthy investment for gravity riding.
Great pads and very comfortable but watc
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
FYI: Im 170 lbs, 5' 11", w/ a 32 inch waist and the smalls fit perfect...The mediums were too long and baggy.
Very comfortable and a good price... what else is needed?
This is a great product for enduro, spetialy when you are a rookie, is grat to protech to the seaddle impacts and, perfect when you need to get to the other stage.
