My second pair of these shorts and they're rad!
I haven't gotten an opportunity to wear the garments, but I did try on and I think they will be great cushion for riding. I have to say I got a kick out of the "pad", but my past mountain bike rides have shown me that I NEED some padding :)
Perfect for my shorter rides, like the way it attaches to the skirt or can be worn with others.
I have tried several other padded shorts and these by far are the most comfortable.
