Alpinestars Bionic Freeride Shorts
Just what I was looking for
I wanted a little more protection to wear under my kevlar jeans. These fit just right. Easy to get used to. I don't ride more than 20-30 miles at a time so the tailbone protection doesn't seem uncomfortable to me as some have expressed. I'm 5'10 165# with average/thin legs and the medium fit well and do not slide around. Fit a lot like my padded bicycle shorts. Shipped fast. Thanks Revzilla.

Alittle tight for me but very functional and cool.
They were a little tight for me but that is because I have big thighs. I wore them in 100+ degree weather and they were not too hot. I wore them for several hours and I was not uncomfortable. I like them and will continue to use them.

you can wear all day
Very comfortable, I have worn them all day. I forget they are on me.
I have not laid down my bike so, I do not know how good the protection is.

This product has great features
I bought these for wearing under canvas pants / jeans since I don't have any proper riding pants. For what they are, they are very comfortable. They are not noticeable to an outside observer (unless you're into skinny jeans).
I only wear them if I know that I'm doing a longer weekend ride or if I'm trail riding. It would be a bit cumbersome to wear bionic underwear for my daily commute.

Great Added Protection
Bought these to wear under my Icon Compound Mesh pants which have no lower back or quad protection. Overall, they work well.
The fitting is tight, even on the small side - still quite comfortable. I ordered an XL and they fit nicely - I'm a 34 waist.
Great shorts for added protection; they definitely give a feeling of security!

Glad I bought these shorts!
So I'm a new rider and want as much protection in case of a fall as I can and these shorts are the place to be for that.
As all the other reviews say these shorts run a bit short, I'm 202lbs and 5'11" and I got the extra large and they fit perfectly. They fit slightly tight and make getting on the bike a bit harder but once your on you don't even notice they are there.
I wanted something with great hip protection and that is the place they lack a bit, a big pad of foam but compared to the serious plastic thigh and tailbone pads it's the least protected part.
I bought my Kevlar jeans one size larger to fit these underneath and you cant even notice they are there, no mischeline man look when you get off the bike.
Overall these are the most protective shorts you are going to get so if you take protection and your body seriously then get the Alpinestars Bionic Freeride Shorts

Protective gear should always be with you!
Very comfortable and well designed. It runs small so make sure to order a size larger than usual. Highly recommend this!

These offer really good protection. I was specifically looking for good tailbone padding as I messed mine up pretty good recently in a crash. I have a hard time believing I'm going to go through the hassle of using them on my daily work commute, but will for going out on rides, dirt, and snowboarding.
