Despite the presence of hi-viz stitching and lettering, these shorts are old-fashioned and elegant in appearance.
Their simple black Lycra with minimal decoration is held in place by a combinat ion of silicone grippers and elastic hems, while the straps are firm but not overly tight.
They’re thin, cool and breathable, and very comfortable, but bunched slightly around my upper thighs during long rides.
The shiny finish of the Lycra is prone to drawing lumps and bumps into sharp relief.
Thankfully they’re summer shorts, as winter tights in this fabric might reveal a little too much post-Christmas belly.
