Fit well and get less chaffing with these shorts. I use them for ultra marathon events. They are smaller than I expected but that's working well as they stay in place. They are long in the leg but I prefer that to some other brands which are too short. The waist area is very comfortable for me.
I love these cycling shorts, the compression material, the chamois and the long inseam of 10.50 make for a comfortable short on any length of ride, flat or hilly, even centuries. The short and chamois vent well in hot weather. The chamois stays in place and does not bunch up. The bottoms do not have elastic grippers which can cause my legs irritation and stay down nicely. The only cycling short I wear.
These shorts are perfect for longer rides. The compression feels good and I love the length. I've tried other brands, but always come back for these. Size up. I usually wear a small but buy medium for the neo power short.
Compared to the Pearl Isumi's she bought a few years ago, she likes these much better. The padded insert is much smoother and more comfortable. Fits much better without bunching up and wrinkling in the crotch. These shorts have quite long inseams, so if your legs are short, consider the LG model that has a shorter inseam.
The chamois is really comfortable and feels kind of like those waffle silicone oven mits to the touch. The material is also comfortable, snug but not a sausage casing. The legs are long, and the closures don't dig in. My one complaint is the waist rolls down once you get on the bike (bend forward) and it cuts in like a normal elastic waist band would (if not worse). I'm pretty thin in the waist so I do think this would happen for most people.
Overall I'm happy with them but I don't think I'll get another pair due to the waist band.
I'm a long distance cyclist and find most shorts are too short as I have long legs. These fit perfectly and don't ride up like many shorts. Compression fabric is nice and chamois comfortable.
These are the most comfortable shorts that I own. After wearing them once, I immediately ordered a second pair. The Lycra offers compression without being overly tight, the chamois is firm without being bulky, and the moisture transfer is excellent. I recently wore these on a couple of centuries under hot, steamy weather conditions, and I (who perspire by the bucket) never felt overheated.
I love the longer inseam length. I ordered 2, and came back for a 3rd, only to find they were out of stock. They are suitable for day-long rides. Do order one size larger than normal, as they run very tight. Please get more in stock!
I am hooked on these shorts. I also have the shorter version. I love the longer version a little more. I ride many times 65 miles on hot days and these stay perfectly comfortable and cool. I will be riding for 8 days straight and do not want to ride in anything but these!
Excellent. So comfortable and supportive. Pad minimal but very good. Fits snug so no rubs. Legs are longer than most womens shorts but I like 'em. Now my favorite short. This short is for riding and not about the pink bling factor. Thank you LG!
I take cycle classes at the local Y. I had not bought a pair of cycle shorts for a long time. Before buying these, I researched what others were saying about different brands and styles. I saw a fellow cyclist wearing the Garneau brand and I loved the design of the shorts and the way the fabric looked. I ordered one size larger than my normal size and that worked for me. What I love about these are they are a little longer (I am 5'7) and they come closer to my knees. They are also very comfortable and the padding does not bunch up on me. I would recommend these shorts.
I like the length of the short and that the shorts don't ride up when I am riding. The compression keeps me comfortable for long rides. The waist band is contoured perfectly, high in back and lower in the front and is soft.
All in all - a great cycling short.
I normally take a size Large in compression bike shorts. After reading the reviews, I orderd a XXL. Even the XXL shorts were too small and too short waisted. Unfortunately I will be returning them.
