I now have padded chamois shorts. BEST MTB PURCHASE YET!
So yeah I will never be riding without those on ever again. I picked up a pair of Diadora mountain bike shorts that came with the Coolmax Chamois liner. The shorts themselves are not perfect. The polyester is not the softest, and they are a touch large, but with a belt they are fine. I also didn’t notice any discomfort from them not being soft during my last ride.
The chamois though. Pure amazing. It padded my ass so nicely, and was very comfortable, while still being supportive. They didn’t get overly hot and I didn’t notice a crazy amount of perspiration. So yeah, I am in love with them, and so is my butt.
The jersey performed exceptionally well too. It is a Fox Indicator jersey. It wicked away sweat really well, had great breath-ability and was well fitted and comfortable. It dried very fast when I got down to the parking lot too, which was awesome. Especially because I forgot a shirt to change in to. The camouflage print back in grey also hides my sweat well. I will be picking up the long sleeve version asap.
Overall both of these purchases were fantastic. I can’t wait to go riding in them again!
