I have just started riding 15 to 20+ mile trips. My butt gets really sore after 5+ miles. So I bought the ATD shorts. I am able to go maybe 5 miles farther but my butt still hurts and I have to stop. It is an improvement over basketball shorts, but I don't know if I can find something better. Other than that the shorts are fine they are comfortable.
Consider the cost of cycling shorts per pair. Think how many sports shorts you already own which you can wear this product under including board shorts cargo-pants spandex etc. I wear them cycling. Hand wash in the sink line dry and wear them cycling again the next day. I will buy this product again.
Recreational rider. I like wearing loose gym shorts over this. Most rides are 20 to 35 miles.
I am currently using these while I have my bike set up on a trainer. I have logged almost 200 miles since I started wearing them and so far I am very happy. I would buy another pair in a heart beat
