Product feature
  1. Breathability
    To determine whether a fabric is breathable, we measure its evaporative resistance (test based on standard ISO 11092). The lower its resistance, the more the fabric will let water vapour produced by the body escape, and therefore the more breathable it is. For example: RET < 9 = extremely breathable fabric.
  2. Care tips
    Machine wash at 30°C. Synthetic programme. Turn the garment inside out. Use minimal laundry detergent. Do not add softener. Line dry in a warm, ventilated area. Do not tumble dry. Do not dry clean. Do not bleach. Do not place on a heater to dry.
  3. Product tests
    Our team of product designers based at the B'Twin Village in Lille is continuously working to make cycling more comfortable for our users. Our obsession is to create products that meet the specific cycling needs of our users and eliminate hindrances to a good cycling experience. We then test our products in the field, as we are convinced that only by subjecting them to real world conditions, like the ones you experience on your bike, can we continuously improve our products.

    Bought these for a charity cycle ride and to use with the undershorts I already had. They are reasonably snug if you have larger thighs like me, but the material is stretchy enough that they are still comfortable while riding. Wore them for 2 hours with no issues. I was caught in a rain shower whilst out and was soaked through, but the shorts dried quite quickly when the rain stopped.
    There is only one pocket in the shorts, located on the right thigh. This probably isn't an issue if you have a cycling jersey with rear pockets, but if you are relying on the shorts for storage space you might struggle, particularly if you have big legs because anything bulky will make its presence felt against your thigh.
    The waist fastener is a hook and bar type fastener. Quick and easy to use, but I think I'd have preferred a button because it doesn't feel too secure - perhaps because I sized-up to make sure I had room in the leg. That said, I've not suffered any wardrobe malfunctions yet.
    Lightweight, quick-drying, comfortable, good value
    Only 1 pocket on thigh
