A follow up to my cycling short basic, here is a selection of my favorite cycling shorts and why. Be prepared to hold your wallet, as these are on the higher end of shorts.
No elastic waist band, comfortable compression all around and cut to bend with your leg. One of the more comfortable shorts I’ve used in awhile but after a season and a half they need replacement.
This and the Bontrager below are my all time favorite cycling shorts. They’ve lasted more than a season, fit my body and work well on road or mountain bikes. My go to for any ride over 50 miles!
Yes, a guys short. This short is designed to work well with the Bontrager inForm saddles, but if you don’t have one it works well with all shorts. The chamois has different density of thickness through out, with out stepping down the actually feel of the pad. So it doesn’t cause the pad to bunch in unwanted areas. Please it is a bit wider than most pads so it doesn’t hit the crook of my butt as most do.
My favorite mountain bike short, and it comes in a variety of colors too. Light weight, great fit and the length hits right above the knee so it keeps me well protected.
