Cons

  • Too Much Padding

Best Uses

  • Mountain Biking

Comments about Nashbar Gel Ride Short:

For the money they cant be beat. The gel pad seems a little big. This is especially noticeable on road bike ride's where you to tend to be seated longer. They work better on MTB ride's "not as much sitting".

    Comments about Nashbar Gel Ride Short:

    I am a road biker that trains for long distance charity rides. I'm female and, at 5'10",have longer than average legs. Most of the women's biking shorts are way too short and uncomfortable. I have started buying a medium men's short and these Nashbar gels fit nicely and have a 7-8 inch inseam. I gave it a 4 star because I've only used them for a yr now so I'm unsure how durable the shorts are. They seem to holding up well so far.

        Comments about Nashbar Gel Ride Short:

        I have been using this shorts for surfing for the last 10 years or so . As you get older you lose the padding in your rear. That in turn makes for two pressing bone spots that damage wetsuits in not time. This put the padding back over my seat bones.

            These would probably be fine except the grip elastic at the bottom of the let was oversized or something. Kind of bell bottom effect with it flared out. Looked and felt very strange. Returned them. Holding off on getting that brand for now.

                    Comments about Nashbar Gel Ride Short:

                    The shorts themselves are nice. The material is very stretchy, and leg grippers are effective. The only problem is the gel pad. It simply is too narrow to offer cushion to my pressure points. The outside edges of the pad just barely touch my pressure points (sit bones), while the bulk of the pad bunches up in between. That gets uncomfortable, like I'm a toddler with a full diaper. I am 5'11' with 32in waist. Ordered size medium. If the pad were wider, the shorts would be very good.

                      These are not tight all over but have a draw string and fit fine. I am thin and fall between S & M. I do not think I could wear a small.

                          Comments about Nashbar Gel Ride Short:

                          These shorts were surprisingly ill fitting. They were generally loose, not form fitting and the material felt thin and had the elasticity of a spent balloon. The padding was overly large and needlessly ran too high up the back of the short. They felt cheaply made in comparison to every other pair of shorts I've worn over the past twenty years.

                          standing or walking padding feels bulky ,riding it's excellent recommend you cover with lightweight shorts if you're going to be off the bike for long .
