Terry Bicycles Breakaway Knickers - Women's
Keep your knees protected through early morning rides and fall centuries with the Terry Bicycles Women's Breakaway Knickers. Featuring a comfortable blend of nylon and spandex, these knickers boast a smooth, stretchy feel with moderate compression, giving you the benefits of muscle stability and support over long miles. The wide, elastic-free waist and leg bands provide a secure, pinch-free fit for all-day comfort.
Equipped with Terry's Fleet chamois, the Breakaway Women's Knickers feature seamless padding for longer jaunts and spirited rides alike. This Italian-made chamois incorporates a four-way stretch and multi-density foam padding to ensure a smooth, chafe-free feel with ample padding for long rides. A lightweight, microfiber cover promotes ventilation while simultaneously reducing the insert's thickness profile at the inner thigh to combat chafing and irritation.

I chose these because on Terry's website, @90 women raved about these! I read reviews for everything I buy, and accord them respect. These knickers are soft and comfortable with just a moderate feeling of compression. They have the middle-of-the-line Fleet chamois (not the primo from Terry), which might lead one to think they would be just so-so. NOT so-so!! I've ridden these on 2-hour rides and find them wonderful. I hardly ever need to shift around to reduce pressure, unlike with my several pairs of premium Castellis and a Giordana I have. This Terry's chamois is deceptively understated, and (perhaps) therein lies its genius: it cushions better than the aforementioned other brands I have, never feeling remotely chunky or diaper-like the way so many tights do. I recommend sizing down from Terry's size charts unless you like really un-grippy tights - in Castelli I am (fer sure) a TIGHT XL but in Terry I am a comfortable Large, across several models, although by measurements (ouch) I should wear XL. A WINNER OF A KNICKER!
