For a plush pedaling perch look no further than the Nashbar Gel Ride shorts, designed around our exclusive GEL RIDE silicone gel chamois. It pretty much goes without saying that they're comfy, but they also feature a 6-panel design for great muscle support, a drawstring waist for the ideal fit, plus elastic leg grippers to keep the shorts perfectly situated.
  • Perforated silicone gel padding is anatomically shaped plus wrapped in lightweight, breathable Lycra to give you all day saddle comfort
  • 6-panel design with 8oz fabric ensures optimal support and fit
  • Flat lock seams help minimize chafing and also deliver a clean, eye-appealing finish

    Thick padding like a diaper

        Comments about Nashbar Gel Ride Short:

        I used these on long rides, and the padding makes the ride more cushiony, but I guess you get what you pay for. When you're not on the bike, it's like walking with a diaper between your legs. And eventually, you have to get off the bike. I bought other nicer shorts, and these are now a backup pair for me. These were also not as breathable as my nicer pairs.

            This is the second pair I have purchased. Bought the first pair 2 years ago and ride 5-6 days a week. They are still going strong, but felt i needed a second pair.

            The padding is very good and really makes the long rides bearable. Excellent value for the money.

                Comments about Nashbar Gel Ride Short:

                was initially somewhat skeptical about the whole gel idea, but found these comfortable and the padding just about right. at six feet and 160 pounds, found the medium to be a very comfortable fit. have worn these shorts for about a thousand miles so far, and they seem to hold up well. ate some asphalt a couple of times and the shorts provided more than the usual protection.

                  Comments about Nashbar Gel Ride Short:

                  For many years I swore by Performance Century gel shorts. However, the recent versions do not stand up well to frequent washings (I'm a commuter).
                  I purchased a couple of the Nashbar shorts and they are very comfortable. The jury is still out on how well they hold up.

                    Great item at a great price. I was worried they were going to be too small (I normally take an XL), but the size description was right on. Was very satisfied.
