like so many others I have ventured into the world of cycling with the aim of shedding a few pounds and get a bit fitter. I was advised to get some padded under shorts to protect ones modesty on rides from chaffing and the effects of sitting on a hard saddle. Not being the lightest person in the world I did a fair bit of research and came across these. I actually wear them over some briefs and under shorts and the offer really good padding in the regions you need good padding in! The sizing is quite generous also. I will be ordering another pair very soon!
