Comments about Bellwether Forma Shorts:

I bought these shorts after reading other reviews. They worked well on a 20 mile ride, the padding is decent and I think it would work well on longer rides. The stitching in the front is different than other shorts I have and it felt different when I first put them on, but it didn't bother me while riding.
I am a size 31 waist and bought the Small size, but it's a tight fit. I would have ordered Medium like other brand shorts I have, but the size chart recommended Small.

Inseam is 8" not 11" like the specs say

      Comments about Bellwether Forma Shorts:

      Can't comment much on the use of the product, since I'll be returning them. Specs online said inseam was 11", but it's more like 8" (at least an inch shorter than my Pearl Izumi Quest shorts, which are listed as 9" inseam). I really think I would have loved the shorts, but they're just a little too short for me. If you can rock an 8" inseam, then it's probably a good buy.

        I ride a couple of times a week and spin in my garage. They fit just right and snug also.

            Great shorts. Sizing is right on. Very comfortable for riding on both the road and on light trails. I am contemplating ordering another pair because they perform so well.

            Good shorts for the money

            Comments about Bellwether Forma Shorts:

            Specs say fabric is just lycra. The other fiber is nylon. They feel pretty good, and the pad is dense enough in the right places to make a difference. They could be an inch or so longer, but they're fine as they are, and the silicone band keeps them from creeping up much.

                Comments about Bellwether Forma Shorts:

                I was hesitant about buying bicycle shorts without a drawstring because I had a bad experience with a different brand. These fit right and work without a drawstring. The longer legs are an advantage in support and keeping legwarmers in place. The tailoring is very detailed so that the shorts fit well all over. The material is claimed to have some compression properties and that is true, but they were never tight or restrictive.

                  Took these shorts on a 50-mile ride first time out. Comfortable all around and good crotch chamois padding. Maybe a bit tight, but I think that's because all my other shorts are old and stretched out. No pinching anywhere. Great functional short. If like all my previous Bellwhether products, they should hold up a long time, that is I expect them to.

                  These shorts are super super sheer, padding is good and they are slippery on my saddle. Riding on trails I am sliding all over the place. Shorts are very comfortable and super sheer. I would rate these as beginner shorts, not good for long rides.
                  Size is smaller than I'm use too! I wear med should have gone with lrg
