Fit is excellent--XL for me a 6 foot 200 lb male. Mesh and lighter material in the legs and straps lend a nice ventilation touch. Chamois is very good--more sculpted than others I've used. Padding at ischial tuberosities was spot on, perineum a bit thin. Shorts are comfortable and supportive so it might just be that I'm not used to the chamois design. Leg length is good but the short's legs do shift a bit up the leg--a couple inches at most-- while riding versus their location when standing. I use Giordano and Craft shorts in rotation with these Mavic--these are right there with quality and fit.
Everyone looks good in black spandex but I also like the bright yellow leg bottom--adds a bit of visibility. Overall very good for regular use.
