Moderate protection, moderate price, great for avoiding saddle rash I bought these to solve two issues - saddle rash and the need for hip protection pads. Two consecutive 7hr days of riding trails in Moab left me with absolutely no saddle rash at all. So far these shorts are the only thing that has worked for me to combat this effect at the cost of riding a touch high in the crotch, similar to boxer briefs. I will be bringing these shorts with me on the TAT as one of two pairs of riding shorts. I may get non-padded riding shorts (Tug 03?) as my secondary pair and here's why: They come up short as it pertains to hip protection - if you pull the shorts high to cover your hips you're singing an octave high. If you wear them low on your waist you have crotch comfort but very little hip protection. The hip pad stops where you need it most, up high around the waistband. If it had adequate coverage, this relatively soft pad could guard your hip bones in a typical off road crash situation (on dirt/gravel 35mph or less). The inadequate coverage seems like a design flaw in most riding shorts designs I've seen. In the past I've worn football hip pads on a belt to provide this protection and if I were getting into some serious rocky mountain riding I would bring additional pads along, so its probably not worth the extra coin for the padded shorts.

A shopper asked: Please give me a description of what an "EVA" pad is. Is it simply a foam pad or actually an energy absorbing/shock protection material? Durability? Thanks. Oct 4, 2014

M Scott M: The EVA padding is firm but flexible, but not foam. I'm not qualified to provide technical information about the energy/shock protection properties, but it seems similar to the padding in my other protective gear. I've been wearing them for over a year with no sign of wear. Oct 5, 2014

Jason K: It's some type of foam padding. It's light enough to fit under a pair of jeans without adding too much bulk. Probably would only protect you in a low speed crash at best but it's bett than nothing at all. Oct 4, 2014
