  • Chamois features a top layer of breathable foam, a middle layer of springy air-mesh and a bottom layer of thin, resilient foam to enhance comfort in the saddle
  • Waistband secures with durable snap closure and zippered fly; partial elastic waistband at sides and back
  • The Novara Exposure Double bike shorts have 4 pockets: 2 hand pockets and 2 thigh pockets with concealed, on-seam zippers

Rated5out of5byfromGreat shorts for any rideBought this near the end of the summer, but got to use to use it several times before it started getting cooler. Very comfortable and durable. I just wish they didn't sew the stretchy mesh liner with built-in chamois into the shorts with a ribbon-string attachments on the left and right side of the hip area. I just cut the mesh shorts off of the ribbon-string so I don't have to wear the bike shorts with the mesh shorts/chamois every time I use it. They could probably change that in their next model production.

Rated4out of5byfromGood Double ShortsThe shorts are pretty good. I came to them from 2 pairs of Novaro Metro Double Shorts. Those shorts kept getting a rub mark on the inner thigh after only 1 or 2 60 min Mountain Biking Rides. So far these shorts have held up during a 1/2 dozen 60 min single tracks. The material feels much more durable than the Metro shorts. My only problems with the shorts (although, overall I like them) is that the legs are probably an inch or 2 too long (I'm 5'10") and just barely come over my knee. This leaves enough material that they have caught on my bike seat once or twice. The Metros were a bit shorter and tighter and didn't have this problem. Also the inner short is held in by 2 little pieces of fabric, 1 at each hip. This ok, but honestly, I sorta feel like they should just be separate shorts and you can put them on 1 after the other. I may cut them apart.

Rated3out of5byfromSize issuesThe medium liner fits just right, but the shell is too big. I'm 6 feet and 157 pounds. In the last year I've lost almost 10 pounds and mediums (size 32s) have oftentimes become too big and baggy in the waist. I tried the small on, but the liner was too small. It would be great to buy the liner and shell separate (or mix and match).

Rated3out of5byfromComfy, sleek, questionable liner qualityI, like some others, was initially confused by how the liner was attached to the shorts, but I got over that. The shorts themselves I love for the fit & function. The liner, however, started falling apart after only one wash (mesh tore away from the padding at the seam). I suppose I should have returned it & tried again, but I just cut the liner loose from the shorts which was easy because of how they're attached. I kind of prefer the shorts by themselves anyway.

Rated4out of5byfromNice ShortsI bought these shorts to wear on my commuting rides. I like the fact that they look just like a regular pair of athletic shorts and aren't straight up tight cycling shorts. I don't feel odd when I'm walking around the grocery store while picking up a few items in these. I also like the number of pockets to hold things like keys, a phone and a wallet - all items I carry when making store runs.

Rated5out of5byfromComfortable!!!I was browsing the store one day and these where on clearance. I bought them and they are now my favorite riding shorts/chamois. They are far and away more comfortable than the more expensive Zoic, Northface, and Cannondale chamois' I have. They had a different color when I was there and I wish I would have bought them too.
