The six-panel cut relies on stretch in the shiny fabric, but the fit is fine when you’re on the bike. Leg grippers and an elastic waist keep the shorts anchored and you get white piping for a bit of aesthetic garnish too.
It’s only fair to say the thin fabric leaves little to the imagination though, so
they’re not for shy types.
The flat pad moulds OK after a few rides and the Coolmax material sucks sweat off your skin and into the pad quickly for a dry, chafe-free environment. The pricing is super cheap, too.
