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:

    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.

      About the gel shorts...

      Pros

      • Stands Up To Abrasion

      Cons

        • Mountain Biking

        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.

                • Bike Riding

                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.
