A secret known by pro cyclists for years is that wearing two pairs of cycling shorts is a good way to add protection against saddle sores and chafing.

The Canari Gel Padded Cycle Liner may be intended to be worn under regular shorts to make them usable for cycling, but an even better use for them is to wear them inside padded cycling shorts for added padding. Chamois cream is applied to the Cycle Liner instead of to your cycling shorts and the net result is a much more comfortable ride. And, No, you can't feel the extra padding thickness. It feels no different than wearing just padded shorts by themselves.

I just completed the Bicycle Ride Across Nebraska which was seven straight days in the saddle averaging 65 to 70 hard miles each day, some of which was over some pretty choppy road surfaces. I wore quality cycling shorts with Canari Gel Cycle Liners under them every day and had zero hot spots or saddle sores. I could have ridden another seven days with no problem. (NOTE: Keep in mind that cleanliness is vitally important and don't wear shorts or cycle liners twice without laundering them.)

Try Canari Gel Padded Cycle Liners under your padded cycling shorts on your next century or charity ride and you'll be amazed at the comfort.

Only used these shorts twice, but I love them!

Comfortable to ride in, padding is perfect and not excessive in size or thickness. Also, the thigh elastic is not too tight and does not pull on my insanely hairy legs (huge plus) but shorts do not ride up at all. Ventilation/wicking seems fine. I'm a 31-32" waist, 6'0" and weigh 175 pounds and the Medium size fits me perfect :-)

I would highly recommend these to anyone looking for a cheap pair of cycling shorts. You will enjoy them. Actually about to buy another pair right now =D

Very good liner at a reasonable price. I wear these under a pair of lightly padded Cannondale shorts for mountain biking of rides around two hours. Very comfortable and no soreness the next day.

I bought two different pairs of cycling shorts. Both padded in the crotch.
This one is the gel padding covered by microfiber. The other was a non-gel type padding. I like both. The Canari Gel works great, is comfortable, and the microfiber is great! I don't like the seams on the bottom of the shorts. It's a thicker rubber band, that keeps them from riding up. You don't notice it once you are riding, unless you have hairy legs. My other pair, doesn't have the band at the bottom of the legs, and I like the way it fits a little better. I have some big ole legs, so don't have to worry about them riding up. I ride in South Florida, so it's very hot, humid, and sweaty, and so far, both of these shorts aren't too hot in the heat either. I wear a pair of cotton bikini underwear underneath to hold my junk in the right place. But wouldn't recommend that for long trips. Great shorts, can't go wrong.

I have couple pairs of cycling shorts and most of them suffer from being scratchy or too small. These are cut somewhat more generously and the fabric is actually soft and strong without giving me a heat rash. The XXL size is about equal to a 42" waist.

I purchased 2 pairs of these in hopes of avoiding spending $100's on actual cycling shorts. What I found was I still should have purchased the shorts, but these are a completely wonderful alternative for shorter rides - or even for wearing under other shorts.

The padding is noticeable, but not over done. The materials are breathable, but not too light weight. The waist band fits well and doesn't 'give' and fall down. The legs hold their position just fine and work great - although I can see in previous reviews that hairy upper legs could be a bit painful...

I wore them under a pair of Under Armour compression pants in the winter with great success. Then I wore them under some Nike workout shorts for the Seattle to Portland Classic - 204 miles in 2 days - and had minimal issue. I could see where a bit more padding in the right places would be better, but for a light weight alternative to full cycling shorts, these are a winner.

The sizes do seem to run a bit larger than normal, I am a 38 waist and the XL's were a touch loose on me, so be cautious when ordering and be prepared to swap if needed.

These padded Gel Cycle liners are very nice to wear, I have been riding over twenty mile rides for several weeks in Pueblo West, Colorado. Where the roads are very bumpy and rough, I have been wearing cycling shorts with just a regular liner, now with these GEL padded cycle liners, has made a world of difference, I am 67 years old, and have been riding bicycles for several years. These shorts are a great price, and can be worn with any other type of shorts.

I couldn't find any women's shorts that were large enough for my size. I bought the men's X-Large and they work wonderfully. Glad I found them. They are very well made and are holding up great. I will buy items from this manufacture again.Canari Cycling Gel Liner Short Mens

These shorts have completely saved my husband. Got rid of the rash he used to get from riding. Excellent!
