Not great

I normally wear Rapha cycling shorts/bibs but thought I'd give these a go for cheaper commutes. While I can understand a difference in quality between cheaper and premium brands, these don't really cut it for me at all on account of the area with the padding sagging/slipping away. As a result, they don't really offer the protection required. On a quick 7K dash through town, I needed to stop to pull these up a couple of times. Can't really recommend as a result.

Bought 1 pair size large (34-36) didn't fit too small. Then bought xlarge (38-40). These didn't fit either,too big. What happened to 36-38. I'm sure they would have been ok but didn't want to go round with a saggy bum.

Hit and miss, like all Decathlon products

Although these are marketed as a cycling short, they are *shorter* than cycling shorts, much more like a triathlon short. They will ride up your legs within the first few km of your ride. Good for a tan I guess.

Work well, all as you would expect and good value

Very comfortable

Wanted something for those summer rides when you want to go a little quicker than perhaps when wearing everyday shorts and tee-shirt. Fit well, consistent with a winter pair of long pants bought earlier. Excellent stretchy fabric and good grippy waist and leg hems but not too tight.

Just what I wanted

Had a pair of these for years and they eventually wore out so no-brainer to buy again. Quality much improved on these (I bought two pairs). Nice touches. I recommend.

Quality lowered

This is 3rd pair I’ve bought and I feel the quality has been lowered. My first pair have out lasted the second pair which are a year younger. My newest pair feel looser around the waist and not as comfortable. Disappointed

Hi Carl,

I am really sorry to see that the shorts you bought may not be up to our usual high standards here. Are you still having issues with them? If you come down to the store I can have my team look over them and see if there is anything we can do.

I apologize about the inconvenience this has caused

good fit but seams are a weak point

Good short in terms of fit and padding, I've been wearing it for 2 months ( ~1200km). Sadly the seams at the front just above the padding have prematurly tear up, leaving me with a hole exactly where you don't want one...

Constantly uncomfortable

I really want to like these shorts. But having worn them for about 6 weeks, I can't get over the constant discomfort. They fit very well around my thighs, they have great padding, but they have a very low waistline which is poorly elasticated, and they feel as if they are constantly slipping down at the waist. They don't actually slip down; they just feel as if they are going to. For this reason, I can't recommend these as a purchase.

Close-fitting and comfortable cycle shorts

I am new to tight cycle shorts and was surprised at how very tight they are to pull on! However, once on, they are very comfortable thanks to the gel padding. They give good compression of the thigh muscles and the legs are held in place by the silicone coated elasticated bottoms. About the sizing: according to my hip measurement on the Decathlon sizing chart, I should be "extra small", but the smallest size available in these shorts is "small", so that is what I ordered. I certainly would not need a larger size as the gel padding wouldn't fit my backside.
