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.

  • Padded shorts for testing your superpowers
  • Targeted polygon foam absorbs impacts from big hits
  • Padding on hips and coccyx protects from major injuries
  • Polygon padding allows you to move naturally
  • Cushion your sit bones with dual density chamois
  • Reduce chaffing and hot spots with flat lock stitching
  • Compressive fit supports your sit bones all day

The pad coverage of these is great but the fit is terrible. These are massive! They are crazy long and on my the chamois pad is way too bulky. I am 6'4" waist 34 and I sized down to a medium and even its a bit too loose and big.

I'm 5'8" 160# with a 32" waist -- the mediums were HUGE. Too big on the waist and extremely "roomy"...up front 8\. The pad placement and coverage seemed excellent but I had to return them.

Had to return mine as well. They felt like I was wearing a diaper and were far too big in the crotch area which was also too low.

I have tried Gforms which don't stay up. These fit well and cover with better padding.

I'm new to the sport and love having some extra protection--and these are great! Super comfortable and the pads are placed well. I've taken a couple spills in them and, although I got a pretty good bruise after one fall, I am sure that it would have been SO MUCH worse. Anyway, these are great! Sizing is great as well. I'm a 33 waist (6 foot, 190 pounds), and the medium fits like a glove.

good protection, but!

I bought this for downhill runs at the bike park. The build quality and protection seem fine. But, the fit is odd. I am 5'9"/160lbs w 33" waist. The waist fits fine but the length is a bit long and the leg bands are loose, so not great fit for my body. I have to fold the waist band down one fold to make the length better. The pad for your seat is a little wide so it has a bit of diaper feel to it. Not nearly as bad as the Fox Titan but not as nice as a standard bike short. I am keeping for the protection, but it could be better.

Does this have padding for your sensitive area between the bum and the scrotum?

Picked these up after several decent crashes in a row and needed a confidence booster. Really comfortable, padding everywhere, worth the investment, and I find I wear these the majority of rides now as I barely notice them. Sizing note: I'm 6'-1, 190, 32/32 and the medium runs a tad big for my taste. It doesn't quite feel like I'm smuggling a burrito but close. Bright side is there's no chance of thigh gap if you're running sleeve type knee pads. I'd recommend smalls if you like to keep it toight light a tiger.

I wear a size 34 when I buy fox shorts and pants. What size should I buy with this mens 7 Protection Flex Short Liner - and do I wear them against my skin with no underwear same as I do with my fox liner

I suggest a size medium and wear them against the skin

Im yet to go down in these but the padding is great and will certainly keep me protected when I lay it down

Yeap, you feel more confident

Haven't actually fell to truly test them (and hope I won't), but they certainly make you feel more protected, without being bulky.
