Not what I expected

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought these and I have very mixed feelings about these shorts. The waist band is fantastic. It stays in place well, allows for a little extra room and the shorts don't roll. The padding is great!
However, I really hate the bottom of the shorts. The bands around the thigh (at least on me) are so tight that they make my thighs look like cut-off sausages. It is not a very flattering look. They shorts are also a lot longer than I expected. I guess I was hoping something to hit me about mid-thigh, but these are really all the way to just above the knee. While the padding is good and the shorts are functional, they are just not very flattering.

You may like Giordana Lasers (or the FormaRed Carbon shorts); high performance and great fit (no sausage leg), everything stays in place, great chamois, and very sharp.
If your size is out, try next season, don't think you'll regret it!
