Strength:

Good lycra

Weakness:

Uncomfortable, rather painful.

In two words: bad choice. Uncomfortable for the sensitive parts partly because of poorly designed seems partly because of the pad itself which it is covered by a single piece cloth

Strength:

Good basic fit.

Weakness:

Poor construction, fabric that doesn't wick moisture. If you work up a sweat, expect to be damp the rest of the ride.

This review is for the Kiss short (closest category I could find). The shorts have a nice fit and I like the scorpion logo, but there's more to dislike about these. The pad is rather thin so I don't use them for long rides. I much prefer my Pearl Izumis for long-distance comfort. The stitching, especially where all the seams come together at the crotch, is sloppy. My most important criticism is that once the shorts get damp, whether in hot or cold weather, they stay damp. The material just doesn't breathe well for some reason. Overall, Pearl Izumi shorts outclass them for the price.

Strength:

Top quality. Fit is perfect in the correct riding position. Chamois is the best on the market.

Weakness:

Very expensive if you pay full retail. Going to ding the value rating by one for price.

These shorts are great. I have worn these shorts from everything from short interval workouts to centuries, with never a complaint. The chamois is one of the best I have ever worn. It is not too thick or too thin. If you are sitting/resting on the "white part" in the front of the chamois, then your position is incorrect on the bike. The cut of these shorts are slightly anotomical, but not as much as the PI Microsensors. I find the fit a little odd when you are standing, but they disappear when you are in a proper riding position. The fabric is very light, which is perfect for the hot Texas summers

Every high-end pair of shorts on the market. The only ones that come close are the Sugoi Ricaro and Louis Garneau Ergotex Air Elite.

Bad cut

The materials are good, but the pants are strainght cut and the crotch area is not well contoured. The Pearl Izumi 8 Section pants are sculpted to a bikers riding position and are far superior in my viewl

Strength:

The pad really works on keeping the temperature.

Weakness:

Pad too soft and thin, not very good fit.

These shorts are a very good shorts, I only use them for about a month or so, kind of test. I like the fabric (lycra), but they fit not very well, so be carefull, you should go one size smaller if you are interested in getting one of this. I had to return them because I was expecting more of the pad, it is very thin and do not provide very well cushioning, it is really good on the temperature managment as they say though. The pad is too soft (almost none protection) in the white section right where your front parts rest. I guess they're not made for me.
