Whether you're navigating a daily commute, embarking on a gravel adventure, or heading out for a social spin with your pals, do it in style with the Giro Men's Venture Shorts. Departing from the fluo, Lycra-clad roadie aesthetic, these shorts are for riders looking to ditch the spandex stigma and infuse some everyday flair into their cycling excursions with a look that passes just as well at the local roaster. Built to stand alone or pair with chamois-equipped undershorts, the Venture Shorts feature a 4-way stretch fabric that comfortably moves with you to eliminate pinching and bunching while the 11-inch inseam sits at just the right length both on and off the bike.
- Q & A
What are the thigh and leg opening measurements on these shorts?
Cool shorts, great material
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: 34
I bought a size 34 knowing I have a 33 waist (sizing down didn't seem like a good idea since another review mentioned these run small). I find the 34 runs a bit big on me. That aside, The shorts feel great and look good too, definitely bridging the gap between cycle-specific and casual-ready.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: Runs small
- Size Bought: 30
One of my favorite shorts for sure. The key feature is the spandex material which keeps the short light, breathable, and flexible, which is important if you choose to use the short while riding. I bought the short only for “around-town” and would definitely recommend to anyone looking for some new shorts with a little flair.
