Product Description

OpenRoad men's gel padded cycling shorts offer miles of comfort leaving you to concentrate on getting more out of your ride. The lightweight stretch fabric and flatlock stitching provides strong durability and comfort. Gel leg grippers stop the shorts riding up your legs and the elastic waistband will stop the shorts curling down during the ride. The 3-tier padding includes 2 gel pads situated in your seating area which are encapsulated in foam padding then covered in moisture wicking material to provide a dry, comfortable ride. The pad is flatlock stitched in to the seat of the shorts to ensure there is no movement.

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.

For the money you can't beat them. The sizing is a little tight as previous reviews have stated, but if you are a 32" then they are fine but if you're a 34" then go for the bigger size.
The padding is great and very comfortable.

The padding is quite big, so I feel like I am walking around with a nappy on. On the plus, my derrière is extremely well catered for when on the bike..

I wore these recently on an 83 mile, 9000 ft of climbing bike ride, and they were really comfortable. and good value too. For anyone planning a big long distance event as i am personal comfort around those important areas will be essential...i think these will do the job.

These shorts are very well padded which is the most important thing. The material is very sheer though and feels like a 'second skin' almost. I've worn them for approximately fifty or sixty miles with the longest run being around 20 and so far have had no problems.

These were a good fit and very comfortable. The gel padding is really good and I won't be going back to foam padding :-)

These shorts are great and are very confortable on long rides. I have been using and washing them regularly and no signs of wear and tear! The sizing though is wrong. I went for one size up and fit perfectly!

Hi. I have purchased Men's Gel Padded Cycling Shorts three years ago and i have used them no more than 50 rides. They were comfortable on the first rides but they were get worst each ride went by. On my last three rides, they became so much uncomfortable that i decided to cut them open and see whats inside. To my suprice, i found out that the only thing that was inside the chamois were two gel small pads that have been moved from their position due to glue failure. The gel pads are small and someone should be lucky to much the width of their sitbones with the width of the gels. Also the chamois is madeup of poorly one layer of foam.

These have literally saved my arse! I rode 20k in the wrong shorts and suffered massively for it. My poor gooch felt like it had taken the wrath of the mighty thor's hammer.. not a good sensation I tell you. Then I got these.. What can I say, I rode 100k with no issues, and I could still sit down afterwards! Amazingly comfortable, zero chaffing, and a thankful behind. What more can you say. They are a bargain!
