worst shorts ever
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
These bib shorts are awful. I give them one star because I should take responsibility for purchasing them only because they were on sale. 1) After a lot of investigating, I've realized that whatever material they use for the pad interacts with the top layer of the chamois in a way that, when moistened by sweat, rubs aggressively against the skin––precisely where you'd rather not have aggressive rubbing, maybe ever. 2) The pad is extra firm in the middle (which also means it gives you a few mm). If you are neurotic about your bike fit, this means it feels like the saddle is too high. 3) I notice when I use these that the leg length is kind of short as I can see my tan line.
Overall very uncomfortable. Painful I'd say. I've had other Sportful's and never experienced this. I see why they were on sale. I also see they're out of stock. I hope they are never ever made again.
