    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Novara Strada Road Bike Shorts - Men's is rated 4.3636 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The right fit for me. Over the years I have tried all price ranges and styles but I keep coming back to these shorts which were "my first". The REI branded short has always had just the right amount of padding for my long (60-10 miles) rides, and are comfy enough for shorter rides too of course. They are sturdy, fit my size well (5'11", ~170). I have tried bibs and high end Pearl Izumi, Canari, and Cannondale shorts, but these are still my favorites.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Your butt will thank you! I finally decided to man up and buy a set of spandex cycle shorts and I'm glad I did! I just got home from a 20 mile ride and I feel like I can head back out and do another 20. Chafing is nonexistent with these shorts and there is plenty of padding for your sit bones and other goods. The material is also very breathable and keeps you cool.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from sTRADA SHORTS GREAT BUY WHILE SHOPPING FOR BIKE SHORTS AT REI, I WAS LOOKING AT COMPETITOR SHORTS WITH A MUCH HIGHER COST. WHILE TALKING WITH AN REI EMPLOYEE IN THE BIKE SHOP, HE RECOMMENDED THE NOVARA STRADA, AT A MUCH LOWER COST. HE WAS RIGHT ON. I LIKE THEM BETTER FOR FIT AND WICKING.THOUGH I USUALLY BUY MEDIUM (34 WAIST), I FOUND THE LARGE TO BE MORE COMFORTABLE FOR LENGTH AND WAIST.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Solid Shorts I wear these on my 14 mile commute to work and on longer rides on the weekends. They are excellent shorts especially at this price. Very comfortable. I have had no issues.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Novara Strada Road Bike Shorts - Men's I was glad to have read reviews on this product and have taking a chance to try the recommendation of the reviewer. The best choice I could have done. These riding shorts are super comfortable, high in quality and a joy to wear. The padding is perfect, not too thick and not too thin. The padding and the garment are breathable and I do not experience sweating. The 8-panel construction is superb, the shorts fit like a glove. I couldn't be more satisfied.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bike shorts for touring I have been wearing these in a rotation with other shorts on a bike tour. When I go back to town I am going to go buy another pair or two while they are still being made. The padding has good coverage but doesn't feel like a diaper too much. The fabric is of good quality and breathes and fits well. After getting little welts from other shorts' rubber band like leg cuffs i appreciate the stretch fabric cuffs on these. I was able to ride all day in these and still walk around camp to set up my tent and such without undue discomfort. I cannot say that about all of my bike shorts.
