Fantastic product which I would recommend to anybody.
on 23 April 2015
I am currently training to do a 1000 mile bike ride over 14 days and became very sore training wearing a pair of old padded cycle shorts after doing 69 miles, I looked at many reviews on the OpenRoad Gel Padded shorts and ordered a pair to see if they made any difference. I have done approximately 450 miles of training with these and have had no problems at all, I completed an 81 mile ride last weekend with no soreness, I ordered another pair last week as they were so good and like the first they were delivered very quickly.
I have used the shorts now for over 4 weeks washing them every day, the gel padding has not deformed or deteriorated in any way and when matching the new shorts with the ones that have been washed and traveled so many miles I could not tell them apart.
I was looking at spending a lot of money on shorts and was concerned at how cheap these were and although I have not tried the more expensive '5 times the cost' shorts these are fantastic.
I have a 36" waste and 6'2" tall, I ordered the XL and the fit is perfect, the quality of the stitching and materials used are superb and therefore I would have no hesitation on recommending these to anybody.
