Test your superpowers.
While we often like to remain in denial to being mere mortals, mother nature likes to remind us every so often with a solid knock off the bike, sending you careening into the trees for a little dash of humbling reality. These blows can be day-enders, or even season enders, or you can slide on a pair of 7 Protection Flex Short Liners before you hit the trail for solid protection that helps you get right back up again to keep pushing the limits of your superpowers. These shorts offer a compressive fit that hugs your muscles while you ride, but more importantly, polygon foam padding shielding your hips, thighs, and tail bone when you go down hard.
7 Mesh utilizes this polygon layout for the padded sections so that you can experience a natural flex and stride on the bike, moving with you with minimal restriction while still providing impact absorption. The padding is strategically placed to provide coverage in areas most prone to big hits, with emphasis in giving peace of mind and confidence to riders who have had previous injuries to the hip or coccyx. Carrying protection and comfort further, the shorts have an integrated chamois pad to give you cushion for long days on the bike. It uses multi-density foam to relieve pressure and reduce the chances of hot spots and chaffing, and flat lock stitching to keep irritating seams out of your way.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Picked these up after several decent crashes in a row and needed a confidence booster. Really comfortable, padding everywhere, worth the investment, and I find I wear these the majority of rides now as I barely notice them.
Sizing note: I'm 6'-1, 190, 32/32 and the medium runs a tad big for my taste. It doesn't quite feel like I'm smuggling a burrito but close. Bright side is there's no chance of thigh gap if you're running sleeve type knee pads. I'd recommend smalls if you like to keep it toight light a tiger.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
Im yet to go down in these but the padding is great and will certainly keep me protected when I lay it down
Yeap, you feel more confident
Haven't actually fell to truly test them (and hope I won't), but they certainly make you feel more protected, without being bulky.
I wear a size 34 when I buy fox shorts and pants.
What size should I buy with this mens 7 Protection Flex Short Liner - and do I wear them against my skin with no underwear same as I do with my fox liner
I suggest a size medium and wear them against the skin
