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.
I ride MTB trails about 4-5 times a week and approx 55-65 miles per week. I have a tendency to wear out shorts as I ride a hard carbon saddle with no padding. I have several pairs of shorts ranging from mid $20s to $90s. Although these do not compare to high end shorts, they really put a hurt on the mid range bracket up to about $65 +/-. The fit is very good, the padding is better than just about everything I have tried under $50, Pearl Izumi included. This is actually my second pair as I have another with a different graphic design, yet same padding/construction that I've been using for about 2 months. The panels feel good in the right places and the legs have silicone to prevent riding up. If they made a solid black with just a small brand icon, they would be unbeatable. However, the colors of the graphics in the picture are pretty accurate. The yellow in these matches nicely with my O'Neil Elemental shirt (Black/Yellow/White).
Have been on about 30+ rides with these now averaging about 20-35 miles per ride. I also have a pair of Giant bibs that I use which cost triple what these cost. I also just bought a pair of Santic shorts that aren’t near as good as these. My butt was already getting sore at 7 miles with the Santics and these I can go 30+ miles before I start to feel discomfort. I have a super boney butt as well. Looking to order a second pair of these. Fits well, padding is good and and good quality and a good price.
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.
For the price, I definitely give these shorts 5 stars. The padding is good enough for my use (1-2 hour mtb rides). I really like how long they are, going down to 2 or 3 inches above my knee. The legs also have the rubber strip around them that keep them in place for the entire ride. I don't have to constantly stop and pull the legs back down while I'm riding. I am 5'11" - 180 and ordered the XL. They fit well.
I'm sure you could get a "better" pair if you paid more money, but I ride for fun a few times a month and these are perfect. I have used them 10-12 times and see no breaking down in the material or construction.
Really happy with these shorts. I bought a pair a couple months ago, and bought some more because I was so happy with the first pair. They are so much more comfortable than my other cycling shorts. The size is true (US sizing) to sizing of any other short I've owned. Although I'm unfamiliar with the brand, the quality of the shorts and padding was surprisingly good for the price. I ride about 40-80 miles per week and have put a few hundred on these and been pleasantly surprised so far. They seem to be holding up well, even though I'm washing them with my regular clothes and dryer. They are more comfortable and perform as good or better than far more expensive shorts I own. Really happy with this find on Amazon.
