Good choice for short rides. I bought these for my husband who rides on occasionally. He was happy with the purchase.

Very nice for an inexpensive item.
Shorts fit well, are comfortable during a ride. Padding is a bit stiff until washed, but that's pretty normal.

Just what I needed!
These were comfortable, fit well, and were exactly what I needed to get through a "fitness cycling" class. They did the job for a reasonable price! No butt pain! :)

I've bought many times online only to waste my money and been unsatisfied until I found Aero Tech Designs Cycle wear and I could not be happier it fits perfectly and feels great. Many thanks for having the measurements listed on the pages also it's great as it gives you the correct sizes. Keep up the great work.
ProsVery good fit

Not my size
I am 75 so maybe that's why the size chart missed me. For me, the Large was a tad large, too roomy at the hips and seat so I have to continually readjust by lifting and scooting forward to repossession the "comfort zone" of the pad. other than that ...

I have not had an opportunity to ride in these shorts but they are impressively put together and i don't anticipate any issues.
ProsThis company is top rate. I will be using them in the future for further biking equipment. I highly recommend them.

Tight in the thighs
Ordered in the same size all my other Aerotech shorts are, but these were tight in the thigh, much moreso than my other Aerotech shorts. I thought they'd be great for my partner, who is lean in the thighs, but even he complained they were tight in the thighs.
ProsA great value
ConsNot ideal for long rides.
Best UsesShort rides.

Size was perfect, and padding was just right.
This product came as advertised. The size was spot on, and for the price, is a good quality item. I will definitely buy more items from this company

Not all shorts the same
I ordered one pair of these shorts because of the price but was surprised by the quality. I ordered 2 more pair and was sorely disappointed. The pad was positioned too far forward on both pair so when you ride there is no pad in the seat and a bunch of material in the crotch.
Best UsesThe pad would make a nice chamois for car waxing.

They came in on time and the size was perfect.

ATD Cycle Bike Shorts
These are a great bike short for the price. They are true to size which is wonderful when ordering online since this is not always the case with online ordering.
ConsThey were a little long for women but better long than too short.

I think the padding should be made optional. The pad is like wearing a diaper. My wife took the pad out and now the shorts are perfect. I use a bigger seat with padding. I ride 16 miles a day, everyday. I ride when it is 80 or 90 degrees out.
ProsThe shorts help keep me cool.
Best UsesBiking, to keep cool.

These liners are better padded than my Trek liner and my Trek bike shorts! Definitely can be worn as shorts also.

Great for the Price
First pair of biking shorts. Really love them especially the price. I wear a 40 inch pants and got the 4 XL. Fits very high on the waist but I just roll them down without issue. Fit perfect across my thighs and hips.
March 22, 2016
I bought 3 pair using the sizing guide and chose XL. They turned out to be too large. The waist came up really high and the legs were down to my knees. I returned for a size L. They fit much better. The smaller size made the padding cling a bit closer. The length of the leg is much better. It is a little snug around the bottom of the leg, but not too tight. These are heavy enough to be worn without shorts over the top. I am a female, 5'4" and weigh 162. I do tend to be kinda wide at the hip, without much waist, but I am fairly solid. The padding is pretty decent, but not as thick as the more expensive kind. For the price, they are a good short. If you are just starting with biking, I would buy these to get started. You can always upgrade as you put more miles under your belt. These are a good quality bike short for under $20. The padding may not be as great as the more expensive kind, but I think it is pretty good. The padding is large and probably will feel a bit like a diaper, but I imagine most of the bike shorts are the same. I will probably get a couple more for my summer bike trip.
Prosgood quality fairly heavy material - thick enough to wear without shorts on top decent padding
Conspadding is thinner than more expensive brands
Best Usesbiking any distance on any surface

Did the trick
I purchased these to wear under my riding breeches. I ride dressage, and saddle sores are torture, and make me lose riding time. The bike shorts offer padding in all the right places and with surprising no bulk. They are very comfortable and do not show that I am wearing them. Great product.
ConsStill need to see how they will be in hot weather.

Using the sizing chart that is provided is right on the money. This is another size I purchased for one of my kids. Both times sizes have been spot on.
Best UsesLight mtb and road riding.

The size chart said I should wear a large which is what I usually order wth my 34 waist. The large were way to small when I put them on. I returned them on their dime for XL which fits much better but still a little tight. Maybe after I wear them a few times they will fit better. The size chart for the ATD Affordable Value Padded Bike Shorts needs a little work. Their return policy is good and so was there customer service. I will buy from them again.

Great Product, But Choose Size Carefully
These shorts work like a charm, and they are a great value. I agree with previous reviews that the elastic is a bit tight, but once you get into them, they are OK. Highly recommended!

GREAT Customer Support !!!
I normally wear small but after reading reviews bought a medium. They were to long in the crotch so exchanged them for a small. Even though had to pay to pay to return them, ATD paid for shipping the small shorts. It was my mistake but ADT has great customer service. The small size fits, pad is nice, but with riding season over won't know how they'll hold up till next year. Bought a $40.00 pair of shorts last year from ATD that's held up really well so couldn't pass up $20 pair on sale for $18 after reading all the good reviews, except for sizing, on these shorts. Will know more how they hold up after a riding season.

Saved my ass
I'm a real BIG Man and these skinny seats arent for us. I wear these under my cargo pants and I ride my Versa 30 2016 Felt bicycle just fine. Without these I just couldnt. As a BIG Man, I aint wearing those alone out in public LOL!! so cargo shorts or something over it. Cool and they cheap too. I dont need the super fancy ones.

Excellent liner short
These shorts fit this clydesdale (230 lbs.) and provide just the right amount of padding. The garment is very well finished and materials seem top-quality. Don't cringe, but I use these under bluejeans for rides from 30 - 50 miles in all kinds of weather. This item must have been designed for cyclists by cyclists.
ProsThese are not cut for general sports use, but fit specifically for cycling comfort.

Exceeded My Expectations!
I am pleased with these cycle shorts! The padding is comfortable and makes riding more enjoyable. They wash well and does not roll up my leg or roll down around the waist. Great quality so far!

Nice for the price, but sizing is off
I bought these along with a pair of the $40 "All American" style. Both were large sized. The All American fit beautifully, but these were way too tight at the elastic. I'm hoping after a few rides they will loosen up a bit. But I have a 33" waist and 34" inseam, and while the fabric size was perfect the tightness of the elastic a made them uncomfortable.
ConsInsanely tight elastic. I don't recommend unless you are very skinny.
