These shorts are a high quality short with good padding for a comfortable ride. They do run slightly small, but you will probably still want to order your normal size recognizing they might be a slight more snug (which I like). These shorts would be good for the the casual rider or the competitive racer which I am. Recommended!
These shorts look and feel great, but unlike the PEARL IZUMI MEN'S P.R.O. PURSUIT BIB SHORTS that were purchased at the same time the chamois let's me down after about 60 miles. I rode a century and expected to find blood. I keep hoping they will break in but they haven't yet. Great up to 60 miles and then, bam.
I ride 5 days a week, 200 miles or so, and only use Pearl Izumi shorts.For me the new version is too thin and not very good for long rides. Will use under tights in winter only.
