Superb for the larger cyclist
on 22 October 2012
For the past 3 years I have struggled to get cycling shorts to fit - for some reason anyone over size 14 is not truly catered for in the UK - but no more!!!
Ordered these shorts last Monday and they arrived Wednesday and they fit like a glove. Lovely lycra with plenty of stretch and a decent looking chamois, which appeared to be superior to the chamois in some of my US shorts (which cost 4 times as much). Tried them out for the first time on Saturday - a 32 mile hilly road route and the shorts never let me down - the grippers held the legs securely in place and the padding made for a comfy ride. They come higher up the waist that others I have tried, which was a bonus as stopped me getting a cold back.
I never once had to readjust the shorts and I am absolutely delighted with them - will definitely be ordering more. At this price, they are a bargain and I don't mind if I wear them out within a season as they represent excellent value for money. Plus being shiny lycra, as opposed to matt, they fit much better under MTB and waterproof shorts / trousers as they allow the over-trouser to 'slide' and therefore you remain comfy throughout the whole ride.
For reference, I'm 5'10", 34" inside leg and wear a size 20 and the 18-20 fit me perfectly :o)
