To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
My first pair of cycling shorts and I like them! Buying any kind of garment online is a gamble. I read a bunch of review from people with my body type trying to figure out which size to get. I finally settled on US medium and it was the right choice. The shorts fit nicely for the most part. The leg opening is a bit tight, though. I don't have big legs, but I really have to pull on these shorts to get them up. That being said, I don't find it uncomfortable at all. Would recommend.
I went through two pairs of these in 5 months. The stitching kept raveling loose at the seems. They appeared made well and fit well but did not hold up. I ride about 130 miles weekly, therefore, I expected them to last a little longer. Amazon's return policy was great and after the second issue of seem thread coming loose I purchased another brand. Let's hope they hold up better.
I use these for mountain biking, so I'm only in the saddle for ~10 miles. Can't say how the chamois would hold up for longer road rides, but I like the fit/compression. I wear these under baggies but they would be fine to wear on their own too if that's your preference/or you're road riding. For my purposes they've worked well and the chamois has been good.
Overall a great cycling short for the price! I did find the pad to be a little larger that other shorts I have but that is not a deal breaker. I did find a small hole near the stitching in the crotch but their customer service is excellent and I have returned them and have a replacement on the way. So I would definitely recommend these shorts based on price and companies customer service.
This was my second pair of sponeed biking shorts. The first pair was so comfortable that I ordered a second pair. Unfortunately the second pair was sent in med size, too small, but Amazon is so good that I was able to send them back free shipping and full refund the following day! Great shorts, in the right size, and, Amazon is the best company to deal with. Thank you!
I'm 6'1 170 lbs and the large fit great. They are snug, but not too tight. I've ridden about 200 miles so far in these and washed them several times and they are holding up well. My friend bought a pair of Pearl iZUMi shorts for $60 and I think the quality of the Sponeed is very comparable.
