The Comfortable, Seamless, Classic Chamois Pad is Multi-Layered

The Men's Classic Chamois Pad is very comfortable on your bicycle seat and we love the thick pad which is ideal for the start of the cycling season when your butt isn't used to the mileage. Nice and thick!

* Thick 10mm chamois pad for bicycle riding

* Thick, Molded 3D chamois pad for comfort while riding

* This long lasting, shock absorbing cellular urethane foam is designed to absorb shock for the life of the short

* It is breathable in that it lets water vapor and perspiration move away from the body

* This pad resists abrasion and is smooth and wrinkle free.

* The Classic Chamois Pad will not change its properties with usage and will not harden or soften with use

* The pad's cells are "open cell structure," which means that water, sweat, and perspiration are allowed to be transported away from the skin while the pad maintains its ability to absorb shock without bottoming out

Preferred over Basic Shorts
Never had bike shorts before so I ordered both a Classic and a Basic padded shorts to try out. I prefer the Classic and ordered 2 more.

Better than expected.
When I first put them on I didn't think they felt right. After a couple rides I think I made a good buy.
ProsComfort. Just enough padding.
ConsCan't think of any cons.

High Rider
The shorts are well made, but. They ride up and then start to chafe. You can pull them down but they well ride up again after a couple of minutes and start to chafe. I will return them because of this. I have an old pair of shorts that have a leather chamois that are very comfortable and I have gone back to riding them even though the chamois is ripped and torn. They are still more comfortable than these shorts.
ConsThey ride up and chafe.
Best UsesVery short rides.

Poor Chamois Placement
I have ridden with these shorts twice. The chamois placement is too high in the front resulting in sitting on the seams on the butt. Very uncomfortable. I find this is true on many of the shorts I've bought from this company. This is my second multiple short purchase. While I like the company I probably will not buy any more shorts from them.

Another Aerotech Winner
I was skeptical as to what I would get for this price but I have 4 prior purchases from Aerotech and they have all been great. I have more expensive AD shorts but I find these the most comfortable. The legs don't have tight grippers but still don't ride up and I like the pad. And, they are made in the US. What's not to like?

Great shorts
I'm new to cycling and needed the proper gear. I was a little hesitant about wearing riding shorts since I'm a larger guy. I bought it just to try out, but now I'm sold. I just ordered 2 more. These shorts are very comfortable and fit very well. The size is accurate. I really like these shorts, you can wear them just as is or under a cargo pants or basketball shorts.
ProsGreat fit. Accurate sizing Looks good
ConsNone yet

Great fit and comfort.
Would recommend this. Padded well and nice design. Allows great air flow and comfort. Does not stick to or rub on the saddle, nice fitting. Just would like a red color option that is always out of stock though.

Women's Bike Shorts
Wife is very happy with them. Not heavily padded but they fit good, look good, and keep the butt from getting sore. Good product at a fair price.

A bit better than the Anti-Chafe pad
I first tried the short with the anti-chafe pad -- don't like all those anatomical pads -- but the stitching irritated me, and I found the pad a bit too thin. This pad is better in terms of thickness, but it has all those seams & cutouts that I don't like. It seemed fine on the short indoor workouts I've done, but don't know if I'll care for it on long rides. Well, guess I'll have to keep looking for my ideal shorts . . .
Prosmade in USA, good fit, padding thickness
Consanatomical cutout/seams can be irritating

Exceptional Product
I bought a second pair of theses shorts recently, and absolutely love them! They offer exceptional comfort, which makes them good for rides of all length. I highly recommend to any cyclist, regardless of their experience level. The price is also exceptional, making the purchase all the more worthwhile.

Great short
Though this short is the least expensive men's. Bike short, it's by far the most comfortable one I've ever worn.

Love em.
Very comfortable ride. These do not have elastic in leg cuff, so they will settle in about 1 inch higher when you start your ride. I'm am currently riding 15-30 miles in these shorts, in absolute comfort. I bought 2 pair, and have found my other cycling shorts (out) of the rotation.
ProsSeamless comfort. Great chamois.
ConsRide up a bit.
Best UsesRemoving butt hurt.

ATD Classic Padded Shorts...
I'm always worried about fit when buying online. The medium was spot on for my 33" waist. I've worn them on two rides, and they are comfortable and do not chafe the crotch area. Great buy at $29.99.
ProsFit well. Price.

Great shorts for a great price
Glad to find a nice pair of bicycle shorts for a decent price . . . .
ProsVery comfy in the saddle . . . . Machine washable and drying (I do cold/cold wash on the gentle cycle and dry it on low heat)
Best UsesI use my shorts for when I do cycling classes at my gym

nice shorts
inexpensive, with enough padding to do the job for 30 mile rides. I prefer these over the more expensive lines as the padding is not bulky.

Had to buy XXL as red not available in XL
I like your bike shorts but am unhappy that you don't stock red shorts routinely, as my riding colors are scarlet (i.e., red) and gold (well, screaming yellow).
Best UsesBecause they have fairly short legs and I don't like to show my underwear, I wear them over Baleaf Men's 3D Padded Coolmax Bicycle Cycling Underwear Shorts XL.

Great shorts; great value.
I bought these shorts hoping that they would be comfortable for twenty-five mile rides several times each week and occasional longer ones. They are even better than I'd hoped. They are well made and comfortable, and, although I haven't had them long, they seem likely to be durable. I don't think that you can beat them at the price. I plan to buy another pair when this one wears out -- or when I want a second color.

Decent shorts for the price
Good materials. The chamois is not as thick as others I've used but I don't notice any difference in comfort when riding. The legs are cut a little shorter than other shorts, so I'll be rocking some white stripes on my thighs for a little while. That may be an issue for people looking for compression on their quads but I'm not one of those people. Overall, a good value for the money.

Great bang for your buck
I'm just getting back into riding after 20 ish years. These Shorts are as good or better than the ones I bought locally for twice the price.
ProsVery comfortable
ConsPadding could be a little less bulky but that's a personal thing probably.
Best UsesCommuting and longer rides.

Second pair last one wore like iron comfortable to the end. Have several pair from different manufacturers these are by far my favorite. Always feel great after the ride no chaffing.
