    Comments about Santini SP70 GIT CX Gel Shorts:

    I'm fairly new to cycling and also fairly heavy, 5'9" and about 225lbs (mostly muscle I swear). Naturally I expected discomfort in the saddle region but I failed to do any research and bought shorts with the foam chamois which were brutal for me(including $100+ versions), particularly after 30 miles. I finally did some reading and decided to give these a try and the gel padding makes a big difference. These do feel a bit more like adult diapers than some shorts but the compression is great and the substantial cushioning is perfect for heavier riders, I felt very little discomfort after a 30 mile ride. With the foam padded shorts I would start hurting around 15 miles into a ride but with these I have nothing to complain about, well worth the price in my opinion.

      Hello, I just got these shorts today,so cannot say anything about how they last. I do hope I can help you by telling you I an 5'11 and weigh 210, 62 years old and a 36 waist. The x-large is a perfect fit for me. I am ready to go riding......I will be back on how long they last.....At this point great deal........

          I'm a size 33 waist and these shorts fit perfectly. The material seems quite nice and the padding is wonderful, albeit it is too wide towards the back of my seat.

          Worth twice the price, the differance between this Italian made short and a generic short is like an expensive bike versus a discount store bike. The best I have used and should last a long time. I bought the small, next time I will get medium for a slightly longer leg. I am 6'2" and 155 pounds. Very well designed pad. Gonna buy some more soon.

              Comments about Santini SP70 GIT CX Gel Shorts:

              I've worn just one pair of LG shorts for nearly 2 years. Now that I am riding a lot more, it was time for more shorts. The padding in these shorts is significantly better than that in my LGs. I don't know which LG, but they were 1/2 the cost of these. The padding is stiffer since it is just 2 wings and is not compartmentalized for flexibility like my LG. As a result, I do notice it more both off and on the bike. It is not uncomfortable, but noticeable. But it's worth it--my sit bones don't hurt after 1 or several 13 mile commutes to work.

              I also like that they aren't high-waisted like my LGs. I wish the legs were a little longer--my leg warmers may have a tougher time with these. I'm not crazy about the underwear elastic, but my shirt covers it anyway. I'm 5'10" 155 pounds and the medium fits tightly (not uncomfortably). I would be tempted to try a large next time.

              Hopefully the logos fade quickly. Hopefully they are as durable as the LGs to survive mtb wipeouts on the trail and constant machine wash/dry cycles.
