Descente Classic Shorts
The word "classic" is bandied about willy-nilly in the cycling world these days, but Descente's Classic Shorts truly deserve such a weighty moniker. The legendary clothing manufacturer definitely knows a thing or two about crafting otherworldly Spandex duds that are built to last and the Classic Shorts' Corsa fabric, engineered for compression and performance, will last longer than you. Toss in an exquisite Stealth chamois, cross grain cutting, plus Descente's Ride Position Fit and you've got the makings of on-the-bike comfort that will make you forget you own other shorts.
  • Corsa fabric perfectly contours to the body for a comfortable ride and is exceedingly durable
  • Proprietary Stealth chamois is pre-shaped for a perfect fit and uses variable thickness, a perforated finish and an antimicrobial application to eliminate pressure points, absorb odors and enhance breathability
  • Cross grain fabric cutting ensures shorts don't ride up
  • Flatlock seams eliminate chafing
  • Descente's custom leg grippers feel smooth against your skin and keep shorts perfectly in place

      They are cut wrong and after a few months they ride like a wet diaper between your legs, especially over 30 miles.

        Needed some more shorts and glad I found these. Great price, lots of panels and are well made. Noticeably better cushioning that my other shorts.

        OK for shorter rides

            Comments about Descente Classic Shorts:

            Shorts fit well, but the pad has a weird bulge in the back. Once you are on the bike it disappears but looks like a load in your pants when walking around. The pad starts feeling real thin after 50 miles, but pretty good for shorter rides.

              Comments about Descente Classic Shorts:

              The fit of cycling shorts is like shoes, very personal. For me, these shorts fit great and Nashbar has them for a good price. I know everyone swears by the fit of bib shorts, but the added complexity (and cost) of fitting your torso length has never appealed to me.
