Really love these shorts. Really comfortable when cycling or any time, and look respectable when off the bike. Actually now the only shorts I wear regardless of whether I am biking or not. I hope they keep on making them.
Got these a few months ago. According to the size chart i should have been a large but when they arrived they were huge around the middle. I swapped for the mediums which felt good when i tried them on although they were quite firm around my upper thighs. Now i have worn them on a few rises I'm really disappointed as they ride up and gather in my groin and are really painful. I can't really wear them despite trying all varieties of underwear /undernicks and lack thereof. Now they are worn and i can't return them Sorry i don't know my measurements off the top of my head but I'm 165 tall and weigh 65kg. I have big hips and thighs and a narrow waist. This is not a good shape fir these shorts. They also have a rough seam at the back that is to irritating i couldn't wear them without tucking something into the waist. This is the first less than perfect item from ground effect who s clothes I've worn to death for the last 15 years.
Hi there Penny. Super sorry you can't seem to get a good fit with the Martinis. it sounds like you're in-between sizes in this instance. Would be good to know your hip measure, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks, Ernie
Great quality as always. I got these for my wife for Christmas and she loves them.
The items were for my wife, the padding proved just too much, she just could not feel comfortable. Her comment "body shape just not on trend". Seasons greetings.
I really enjoy riding in these because they're comfortable and cool. I would've given them 5 stars but the the leg length is a fraction too short for me (I'm a shade under 5' 9''/175cm . As an older female my knees don't look that great so another 2-3cm would be terrific.
