Bellwether Criterium Shorts
Whether you're spinning around the neighborhood, cruisin' the greenway, or racing for the finish line, bike shorts just make riding more comfortable. They reduce chafing, provide greater mobility, and give you padding in sensitive areas. These cycling shorts let you experience the comfort of performance clothing, without holding you upside down for your lunch money. These bike shorts feature multi-directional stretch with high spandex content, so there's no restriction like you get from cotton. Contour Pro chamois is ergonomically cut and features 4-way stretch to move with your body. Silicone leg grippers keep 'em in place, and reflective accents add visibility for motorists.

      Comments about Bellwether Criterium Shorts:

      I have had several brands of shorts. None of them have fit as well as this brand. Not to tight around the legs and the cushion pad is the most comfortable. I use them for long cycle rides, 2 - 3 hours at a time. The comfort last the whole ride.

              I bought these in a Small & Med, being in between sizes. I am 5'8" 155#'s. Both were way too tight, but were of excellent quality to my eye. Sent both back & ordered a large. NOW the legs& butt feel OK, but the waistband goes up to my belly button. Probably nice shorts for a TRUE racer body (tall& thin).

                Comments about Bellwether Criterium Shorts:

                I think it's been about 4 years since I bought my first pair of bellweather shorts and I keep coming back. They are as comfortable and wear as well as any shorts I've owned but are a relative bargain. I've paid 3x as much for shorts that have worn thin enough to see butt crack within a few seasons. This fabric is a little heavier, but so far, they last and last with no signs of wearing thin or seams coming undone. The silocone on the leg openings stays in position all ride long. When my other shorts wear out, they get replaced with these. I'm back for my third order of them.

                I'm 6'2", weigh 200 lbs with a 33" waist and fit comfortably in the Large.

                Comments about Bellwether Criterium Shorts:

                These are excellent shorts. The best I've tried so far. The pad is segmented such that it does not bind, and the shorts have less adhesion to the saddle than others. Order the size you consider yourself to be, rather than following the waist chart. For example, I'm usually a "large", and I'm also a 34" waist. Bellwether calls 36"-37" a large, but these shorts are slightly more snug than the 32"-34" Canaris I own. In both cases, "large" fits me best.

                      I cycle over 3000 miles a year. These shorts are a good buy. I am about 6'1" tall and 205 pounds and the XXL (2X-Large)was a good fit.

                          I am not a huge cyclist, but these shorts have definitely kicked my butt into gear to ride as often as I can. The shorts fit great on me in all the right places, and the padding is great (I seem to hear a lot about bad construction of crotch linings a lot on this site. So far the shorts are holding up incredibly well, not even a dropped seam).

                          I do wish there was a little more room for my jumblies *cough* but that is really no problem.

                          As for sizing: They do seem to fit a bit differently than most of the bike shorts out there. I am 5' 9" 155lbs and I chanced at getting a medium, and they fit perfectly.

                          These exceeded my expectations. I have been using PI products lately, but was swayed by the price on these shorts. They were a great fit for me and I like that the legs are just a tad bit shorter than the PI Quest shorts I was using before. I'll be buying more.

                            Very comfortable short, especially the pad which is perfect for my bod. Adding a drawstring would make for a better tummy fit, but that's a minor point.
