The chamois is excellent, keeps you dry whilst having plenty of padding in the right places. The sizing is easy to work out with the sizing guides and the fit is excellent. I don't go for long rides without these now. They keep you warm on cold days as an added bonus.

Skins cycle knicks are by far and away the best knicks that I have ever worn. Comfortable, excellent chamois, no chaffing. That is why I always check the Skins website when there is a sale advertised. 10/10 for me!

Winston Tse



Good material. Lasts long looks good too

James Mckoy



The first time I rode in these I got a hot spot on my butt and got a blister. I have been riding bikes for over 25 years and never had that happen. Basically a poorly designed chamois with ridges where there shouldn't be any. I love my other skins compression gear but hate these I'm afraid.

very comfortable for me in high cadence and hig speed.

Good Quality item, description of fit accurate to say it is tight but comfortable. Padding is of high quality.

I've bought one compression short, so as soon as it arrived I give it a try, I was so impressed with the good feeling to wear it that as soon as I get back at home I just bought another one. I'm very happy with it.

Great cycling shorts, good comfort, wicking and slight compression-like fit. Normally buy Endura cycling shorts which I have been pleased with, but gave SKINS a try because of the quality of the other SKINS merchandise I have bought in the past and have no regrets.

Simon Gundry



Perfect. Quite a tight fit on first wearing but great.

Timothy Jones



I first tried Skins products 3 years ago and continue to purchase their products as the quality is by far superior to alike brands. These shorts fit as per the sizing charts and perform very well in both short sprints and long endurance rides. The compression given is a serious advantage during the ride and assist in DOMS avoidance afterwards.

The best compression short I ever have

Joel Pultz



These are by far the best cycling shorts I've owned. I use them for both road and mountain biking. Comfortable and the amount of padding is great without feeling too bulky. If you are anywhere near between sizes, I'd suggest leaning towards the larger size (I had to exchange the mediums I originally chose)
