    Weird fit. Extensions way too long.

    Very weird fit. Too much fabric in the front (on the belly) - reaches almost to the breasts, not enough in the back - feels almost like the "plumbers butt". Maybe the chamois is stitched in the wrong place. The grippers are way too long - half of that length would be enough. I have 8 other PI shorts and bibs and these are well below the PI standard. Not recommended.

    Great shorts

    Fantastic shorts! Great fit for me (L, 175 lbs, 76”), material is high quality and the chamois makes for a comfortable ride. It’s the first “high- performance” short I’ve bought, and I can tell where the money went!

    Would have loved to kept these but the fit at the leg opening is WAY too big. See the reviews for the similar bib shorts. The design flaw is that since they are longer (passing the muscle mass) they needed to have a smaller opening, unless the rider has a stocky build.

    Nice fit

    Chamois is really great, great comfort nothing to complain, consider the inseam length though, got a large but maybe the inseam is not the right size for me but that's something that happened to me with other different shorts and brands

    Great fit and comfortable.

    I've just used these once, but that will be enough to write a review. These fit great and comfortable around the pad. The chamois pad looks big, almost too big at first glance But I didn't notice it getting in the way when riding. I can tell these are well made by the the quality of their stitching and attention to detail around things like the waist band.

    Great update

    These shorts paired perfectly with my Fizik Aliante VSX saddle! I needed something with high density foam but wasn't bulky for longer rides. The padding on other shorts I own weren't cutting it on the longer century rides, or if they were, they were quite thick. I love the updated chamois in these shorts. Long gone are the pressure relieve channel of previous designs, the chamois is completely smooth when you look at it. When it comes to sizing, I would have to say they're pretty true to size. I've previously owned a pair of Attack shorts as well as Attack knickers, and the sizing on these are no different. I also like that they are longer shorts, with a 10in inseam. Just overall real high quality shorts.
