Rated4out of5bysmartymutt904fromVery sharp looking shorts!So I'm new to bike shorts and pads. Also not a road biker, so I don't do those extremely long 20-30 mile trecks. That said, I'm a mountain biker, single track mostly which is quite bumpy! I love the style of these shorts and they look really good on, they have a very thick gel chamois inside. I also purchased another short by skirt sports, which has a medium padded foam chamois. For my purposes the medium foam works the best. I wish the Sugoi had pockets on thighs and the option of a different pad. Another reviewer made a comment about seeing her underwear thru the white panel on the shorts. Well maybe she's new to, as you don't wear underwear with bike shorts. I found the gel pad just too thick for my personal liking, but this is a very personal choice based on what you ride, how long you ride and what works for you. I will give them more short rides since I'm keeping them to see if I can get use to that feeling of a thick pad as even mountain biking I usually go about 12 mi depending on the tacks available. You just cant beat the high quality of the fit of this short or the look. If you like thick padding I do recommend this short 100%!

Rated4out of5bykbikefromcomfy but choose underwear wiselythe shorts are great, lots of padding and it hits you properly and doesn't make you look weird when you are off your bike
con: the white parts on the legs are virtually see through and you can see your underwear color through it...however most bike jerseys are long enough to cover this and i figure while biking who is going to be able to notice as i pass them :-)
