Not much special about these shorts. Having ridden Giro and Pearl liners, these don't stand out. the comfort is there, for sure, however the features are not. Chamois is stnadard and on par for other liner shorts, however there are cooler options in terms of temp and materials, as these do not have perforated/vent material making up the legs. Lack of pockets (one, very small) and no fly make this a great option to rotate into your weekly ride wear if you need a backup pair. A really good short for what they are, but for liners, there are better options.
