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.

  • 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

    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

      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.

        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.

                  Padding allows me to ride 10+ miles per day with no sore seat. Very comfortable shorts. Ride with them nearly every day.
