A couple of week ago I picked up two pairs of padded cycle briefs. These are designed to fit under pants or shorts. I word like to provide my reactions so far after a couple of uses.
Four years ago I picked up two pairs similar padded shorts but in a boxer style. I really enjoyed those but they are becoming thin after many hours and miles. I rely on them almost exclusively and seldom use cycling shorts. The pads on the undershorts are thinner than cycle short pads. The main purpose is to wick perspiration and eliminate possible rubbing leading to sores or irritation.
My boxer style has given me no problem and I would heartily endorse, but after using the briefs on three rides I am concerned. My issue is that the leg hem creates a roll of fabric that will cause a problem on long rides and repeated days. I have decided to use the briefs for 1 or 2 hour rides.
I will let you know how they work and let you know what I find out.
