G-Form Pro-X Compression Shorts

The evolution of pads.

Keep mountain biking-induced bumps and bruises to a minimum with the G-Form Pro-X Compression Shorts. Their proprietary RPT padding is soft and flexible for comfort when you're riding but hardens instantly upon impact to protect your hips and tailbone when you take a slam. They also have a compression fabric that wicks sweat to keep you cool and dry.

good for shorter trail rides

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Med

well these are mountain biking shorts and the hip pads are nice, but the compression material is designed for wicking more than compression. They are cool, but not a very tight wrap on my thighs. Also I was surprised they didn't come with a built in chamois ... i mean that's the padding i need the most while cycling so I felt like these were designed for skate boarders not cyclist. They were well for shorter rides where you are likely to go down hard, but not suitable for all day riding.
