Why We Like The Flex Short Liner
While we often like to remain in denial to being mere mortals, mother nature likes to remind us every so often with a solid knock off the bike, sending you careening into the trees for a little dash of humbling reality. These blows can be day-enders, or even season enders, or you can slide on a pair of 7 Protection Flex Short Liners before you hit the trail for solid protection that helps you get right back up again to keep pushing the limits of your superpowers. These shorts offer a compressive fit that hugs your muscles while you ride, but more importantly, polygon foam padding shielding your hips, thighs, and tail bone when you go down hard.
7 Mesh utilizes this polygon layout for the padded sections so that you can experience a natural flex and stride on the bike, moving with you with minimal restriction while still providing impact absorption. The padding is strategically placed to provide coverage in areas most prone to big hits, with emphasis in giving peace of mind and confidence to riders who have had previous injuries to the hip or coccyx. Carrying protection and comfort further, the shorts have an integrated chamois pad to give you cushion for long days on the bike. It uses multi-density foam to relieve pressure and reduce the chances of hot spots and chaffing, and flat lock stitching to keep irritating seams out of your way.

Does the job.
- I've used it several times
Decent liners, especially for the price. Chamois is thick and actually pretty good, I wasn't expecting much but I was surprised at how comfortable these were after a few hours. Armor padding is in all the right places and doesn't inhibit movement at all especially once it warms up. Fit is a bit loose at first, can pull them up a little higher once the chamois is broken in to tighten up around the boys. I followed the sizing chart and they fit me pretty well, they stay in place and don't move around. If you have skinny thighs the legs may be a bit loose, which other reviewers had mentioned. Fit well under mountain bike shorts. They do include loops which can be used to clip into shorts or to hang for drying. Overall I'm very happy with these!
