NOT super awesome

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Not up to par compared with earlier versions of this model. I like that fact that they have slimmed down the chamois a bit. However, the fabric seems less robust and the elastic on the legs is gone. Sorry P.I., but a few swatches of rubbery paint is not enough to keep the legs from riding up and that is with a fit that is otherwise quite snug. Even though the stated inseam is the same, they seem to fit shorter in the legs and lower back than years prior. These will be fine for shorter training rides of a but this can no longer be my go-to short for all day in the saddle.
