Canari Velo Gel Shorts
No matter if you ride centuries or simply roll around the neighborhood, pedal in blissful comfort courtesy of the Canari Velo Gel Shorts. Canari's proprietary gel padding will be your new best friend as it spreads road vibrations and shock throughout the whole pad rather than having it concentrated in a specific area. And have no fear about the pad's integrity as their silicone gel won't overheat, migrate, or leak unlike petroleum-based counterparts. The shorts' Pro Weight fabric, too, is built for all day comfort in the saddle as it's heavier and more durable than standard Nylon/Lycra. Providing a firmer fit and stretch, the Pro Weight material delivers plenty of support to the quads and hamstrings all the while remaining incredibly breathable and quick-drying to keep you riding with a smile on your face on even the hottest of rides. Rounding out this stellar package are comfy leg grippers plus flat seams to ensure nothing goes awry regarding fit and chafing.
  • Pro Weight Nylon/Lycra construction delivers muscle support and breathability
  • Gel padding protects soft tissue
  • Flat seam construction eliminates hot spots and chafing
  • Soft touch leg gripper ensures the shorts remain perfectly positioned

Very Nice Shorts for the Money

Pros

  • Comfort

  • Quality

Cons

  • Runs Small

Best Uses

  • Road Biking

Comments about Canari Velo Gel Shorts:

For the price paid, probably the most comfortable, highest quality shorts I've worn (in 3 decades of road riding).

That said, my rides are almost all under 2 hours, so you'll have to judge their comfort on those longer rides.

One caveat: they run small. I'm about a 33" waist and NEVER take a large in any shorts, but the large in this short fit perfect.

        Comments about Canari Velo Gel Shorts:

        These seem better than any of the other shorts that I have - very comfortable, gel in the right places, and it has helped me push my rides a lot further. I was really struggling with comfort past 40 miles with my Pearl Izumi's. These still feel comfortable after 70 miles. I'm 6'3" and 200lbs with 34" waist. I choose the large size, and the waist and fit to me is perfect.

          Comments about Canari Velo Gel Shorts:

          Most shorts are fine for the daily ride of just a couple hours, but these are the best for the all day rides - for me. I ride a road bike, sometimes on longer trips, and sometimes on longer trips on consecutive days, so these really pay off then. I've been buying them exclusively for a few years now, and can't think of anything I don't like about em.

            Comments about Canari Velo Gel Shorts:

            I posted a previous review of a pair of these shorts that I bought for myself. I bought another pair for my son, and he likes them too; more comfortable than the AeroTech shorts he was wearing before. Since writing my first review, I've had these shorts on rides up to 9.5 hours in the saddle with a very tolerable amount of discomfort. I do use chamois cream; not sure how much difference it makes beyond the comfort of the shorts themselves. The shorts appear to be well constructed, and I'd expect good durability. Time will tell.

              I was very surprised that there was very little gel in these gel biking shorts. I have non- gel riding shorts with more padding than these.

                Comments about Canari Velo Gel Shorts:

                I've been wearing a variety of relative inexpensive baggy shorts (with gel chamois) that have always left me rather sore starting at about an hour in the saddle. Baggy because the details of my build are better NOT put on display in spandex! Training for a long ride now, though, so needed to see if I could increase comfort. These shorts are a big step up. Longest ride so far is 4 hours in the saddle, with very tolerable levels of discomfort, even without chamois cream. Guess I'll just have to live with the unflattering display.

                    Biking 10 miles per day these feel great and look great. I chose a size smaller than the chart & fit is very good. Others have said this and were right

                      Bike shorts are comfortable and fit well ( maybe a little big). However, I only gave 4 stars because Nashbar in the specs said it had a drawstring like my older pair so I ordered them from Nashbar to get shorts like my older ones. The ones at the local bike shop did NOT have a drawstring and were not as adjustable as my old ones. But guess what? I wasted time and money to order online and wait for these shorts to be shipped only to get the very same shorts I could have bought at my local bike shop a week earlier for less. Nashbar, you need to edit your listing to have the correct info so one can make a correct choice in ordering these shorts!
