For a plush pedaling perch look no further than the Nashbar Gel Ride shorts, designed around our exclusive GEL RIDE silicone gel chamois. It pretty much goes without saying that they're comfy, but they also feature a 6-panel design for great muscle support, a drawstring waist for the ideal fit, plus elastic leg grippers to keep the shorts perfectly situated.

  • 6-panel design with 8oz fabric ensures optimal support and fit
  • Flat lock seams help minimize chafing and also deliver a clean, eye-appealing finish
  • Elastic gripper at the leg openings and a drawstring keeps the shorts perfectly in place

  • Pad Too Short In Front

Best Uses

  • Bike Riding

Comments about Nashbar Gel Ride Short:

I am 5-9, 185, 55 years old and the mediums fit perfectly. I did send them back because the padding in the front stops too short for any modesty--if you know what I mean. If they had extended the pad in the front with some wicking fabric, they could be the perfect shorts for a great price.

Good Chamois but bad seems

Cons

  • Chafes

Best Uses

  • Long Rides

Comments about Nashbar Gel Ride Short:

These shorts have a nice padding to them, but have stitching that chafes at the edge of the chamois. It could be the size of my butt or maybe the width of the saddle, but these just don't work for me. They appear to be the same as the century shorts from Nashbar's sister company.

    I like these shorts, good value. A little too long. Just a little wider in the 'width' part would make me very pleased with these shorts.

      Comments about Nashbar Gel Ride Short:

      These were my first Gel shorts. Seam in back tore during my first ride. The Gel pads were not adequate. Bottom was very sore after a 28 mile ride. This is my normal Sunday morning mileage. I will not purchase this brand for shorts again

        For the price, Nashbar shorts are your best deal. The elastic holds up, but the material gets a little thin after a few years.

          Best Uses

          • Shorter rides

          Comments about Nashbar Gel Ride Short:

          I've worn these about 10 times. The only real issue is that the padding is a bit too wide in the wrong place, which rubs a little bit too close to home. I now put a little petroleum jelly on my inmost thigh/crotch for longer rides. Padding in the butt is comfortable riding, not so for walking. I certainly would not consider these for a triathlon.

          The last pair of these lasted over two years and probably 150-200 washings. I throw them in the dryer as I'm too impatient to wait for them to air dry.

          Comments about Nashbar Gel Ride Short:

          For the money they cant be beat. The gel pad seems a little big. This is especially noticeable on road bike ride's where you to tend to be seated longer. They work better on MTB ride's "not as much sitting".

            Comments about Nashbar Gel Ride Short:

            I am a road biker that trains for long distance charity rides. I'm female and, at 5'10",have longer than average legs. Most of the women's biking shorts are way too short and uncomfortable. I have started buying a medium men's short and these Nashbar gels fit nicely and have a 7-8 inch inseam. I gave it a 4 star because I've only used them for a yr now so I'm unsure how durable the shorts are. They seem to holding up well so far.

                Comments about Nashbar Gel Ride Short:

                I have been using this shorts for surfing for the last 10 years or so . As you get older you lose the padding in your rear. That in turn makes for two pressing bone spots that damage wetsuits in not time. This put the padding back over my seat bones.
