Canari Vortex Gel Shorts
There's nothing quite like the comfort of a pair of well-designed shorts complete with a gel chamois. The Canari Vortex Gel Shorts sport Canari's proprietary gel padding that spreads road vibrations and shock throughout the whole pad rather than having it concentrated in a specific area for optimal on-the-road performance. The Nylon/Lycra fabric blend delivers plenty of support to the quads and hamstrings all the while remaining incredibly breathable and quick-drying. To complete the package, the Vortex Gel Shorts feature comfy leg grippers plus flat seam construction to ensure nothing goes awry regarding fit and chafing.
  • Nylon/Lycra fabric construction ensures muscle support and breathability
  • Gel chamois protects soft tissue and ensures a comfortable ride
  • 8-panel anatomic construction
  • Flat seam construction eliminates hot spots and chafing
  • Leg gripper features silicone to help keep shorts perfectly placed

      Comments about Canari Vortex Gel Shorts:

      I am 5'-7" ~160lbs & 34" waist - first purchased these shorts in a large for two reasons #1. I own two pair of Canari Blade shorts in a large that fit perfectly. Thought these Vortex shorts would fit the same. #2. Reviews stated they run small and buy up one size.

      The large were huge. I exchanged for a medium and the fit is the same as the large in Canari Blade shorts - perfect!. The pad is excellent and appears to be the same in both the Vortex and Blade.

      Price drives my selection between the two Canari short labels. Only complaint I have is neither have a draw string not a big deal but I happen to prefer a short with a drawstring thinking.

      My Vortex shorts do have what I am going to call the end of the threads protruding out of the front of the shorts. Does not seem to be a weakness in the stitching - it appears as though the thread ends should have been on the inside of the short instead of on the outside.

          Comments about Canari Vortex Gel Shorts:

          I bought a pair because of the great price but was led astray by a review saying they were sized small and the confusing sizing listed at the time of order. I ordered a size larger then.exchanged them for my regular size which fit perfect. I was so pleased with the quality and comfort of these shorts I ordered two more pairs at the same great low price.

            Comments about Canari Vortex Gel Shorts:

            My previous review incorrectly stated size purchased. Initially the size purchased were large and fit as a large. Owning another style of Canari shorts "Men's Blade Gel Shorts" in large I presumed the large in the Canari Vortex would fit the same. They do not! The Vortex shorts in medium did fit me well I am 5'7" and ~160lbs usually wear a size 34 waist.
            The exchanged large for medium in these Vortex shorts arrived and the fit was very good. The chamois is quite comfortable, not too large or small. Only complaint is the vertical stitching on the leg in front has a couple of threads projecting out from the short - the threads are short and likely can be cut.
            Pleased with the purchase - will include these my bike short rotation.

              Comments about Canari Vortex Gel Shorts:

              I own other Canari shorts not the "Vortex" but the gel pad seems to be the same as what I have. This is why I purchased these shorts.

              The shorts I ordered where a medium they fit as a large at best. The leg grippers barley touched my thighs and the shorts had creases and sags in the fabric front and back. I sent the pair back to Nashbar for an exchange; I am 5'7 & 160 lbs. & awaiting delivery of a size small.

              Hope the size small fit as a medium should. The shorts seemed to be good quality other wise.

              Can not say I would or would not recommend until the new shorts arrive!?

                You will need to pull the shorts up hard in the back or the padding will not be in the right places.
