Nashbar Gel Ride Shorts
There's riding in comfort, and then there's riding in comfort while sitting on gel. 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
  • Elastic gripper at the leg openings and a drawstring keeps the shorts perfectly in place

    Comments about Nashbar Gel Ride Short:

    I ride any where between 20 to 100 miles every time out up to 4 times a week. These perform like a more expensive brand I have. The legs are not as tight as I would like but it may be because my leg are not massive size yet

      Comments about Nashbar Gel Ride Short:

      I bought this short at the start of the riding season. 1500 miles later it is still going strong. Most of my rides are between 20 and 40 miles. I've done less than 10 rides from 60 to 100 with these shorts.

      I wash them in a machine with hot water, soap and normal cycle, double rinse, air dry after each ride.

      No wear or tear on the gel. All the elastic is still in good shape.

      I'm buying another pair. At this price, I am splurging! I have gotten a full season of comfort out of them - anything more is a bonus.

              Comments about Nashbar Gel Ride Short:

              I really like these. The material is high quality. The only problem is the pad looks a little saggy from the back. So if you are a confident person no problem. But a little self conscious myself. Maybe thicker panels would hold it tighter to the body.

                  These provide the same comfort as another pair/company's shorts that I paid double the price for. They have enough padding. I do get sweaty in the gell area but the comfort can not be beat especially on rough roads.
