Even if you’re on a fixed budget, spending over £100 on a pair of cycling shorts can seem ludicrous. If you’re the sort of rider who puts in serious annual miles or wants the best comfort money can buy, however, then it makes total sense.
The AeroSensors really are at the pinnacle. Supported by the bib and held at the base by easy leg grippers, the high-wicking and supposedly aerodynamic Aerosensor fabric forms the body of the short. Pearl’s 3D Pro-bonded dual-layer chamois sits inside for anatomic comfort and performs faultlessly on long days. The chamois stretches into shape, never sagging or at odds with your groin, and the deep padding and perforated synthetic leather reduces friction. It’s a top piece of kit that really works. The hardest part is convincing yourself to spend the money.
