5 Star Shorts if You Love the Filled Diaper Feel
on May 20, 2013
I own a few pairs of the PI P.R.O cycling shorts (those are great), but bought a couple of the Quest version to save money. These turned out to be a total waste of money since they are so uncomfortable to wear I don't ever use them. The padding in these things is huge! With them on it's like I'm walking around with a full load in my pants (I've got plenty of time to do that when I'm 80 and filling my Depends). On the bike, all this padding initially feels like a soft fluffy couch but after a few miles it's compressed and putting pressure in all the wrong places. I could not wait to take them off after a ride.
For most, people will see this huge mound of padding as a positive. I do not. They were not for me. I prefer minimal padding or thin padding. I ride road bikes and normally go 40+ miles so perhaps these are geared for more upright positions like hybrids or Townies.
