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

    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.

        Comments about Nashbar Gel Ride Short:

        I am 5-9, 185, 55 years old and the mediums fit perfectly. I did send them back because the padding in the front stops too short for any modesty--if you know what I mean. If they had extended the pad in the front with some wicking fabric, they could be the perfect shorts for a great price.

        Comments about Nashbar Gel Ride Short:

        These shorts have a nice padding to them, but have stitching that chafes at the edge of the chamois. It could be the size of my butt or maybe the width of the saddle, but these just don't work for me. They appear to be the same as the century shorts from Nashbar's sister company.

          I like these shorts, good value. A little too long. Just a little wider in the 'width' part would make me very pleased with these shorts.

          Not what I expected.

            Comments about Nashbar Gel Ride Short:

            These were my first Gel shorts. Seam in back tore during my first ride. The Gel pads were not adequate. Bottom was very sore after a 28 mile ride. This is my normal Sunday morning mileage. I will not purchase this brand for shorts again

              Comments about Nashbar Gel Ride Short:

              For the price, Nashbar shorts are your best deal. The elastic holds up, but the material gets a little thin after a few years.

                Best Uses

                • Shorter rides

                Comments about Nashbar Gel Ride Short:

                I've worn these about 10 times. The only real issue is that the padding is a bit too wide in the wrong place, which rubs a little bit too close to home. I now put a little petroleum jelly on my inmost thigh/crotch for longer rides. Padding in the butt is comfortable riding, not so for walking. I certainly would not consider these for a triathlon.

                The last pair of these lasted over two years and probably 150-200 washings. I throw them in the dryer as I'm too impatient to wait for them to air dry.
