  • Q & A


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

I ordered a medium and they fit great . I use them for spin class because they don't have a thick pad like regular road riding shorts. I like that the pad is removable, as well. Very happy with style and fit.

Um, WAY too big!

  • Fit: Runs large

These were AT LEAST 2 sizes too big. I seriously think they might be man shorts? For reference, I'm 5'8" and weigh about 130lb. I normally wear a small or medium in bike shorts and didn't want these to be tight so I ordered a medium. Going back asap! Otherwise I guess they are OK? But the inner liner is not very thick at all and sorta seems weird how it's 2 separate pieces.
