Purchased after using Pearl Izumi Elite Cool shorts for years. Needed shorts & could not wait for new Pearl Izumi Interval line to hit market, so purchased these Giro shorts. Had good reviews, but disappointed with waist rise. Too low compared to Pearl Izumi cut. Would recommend to Giro to increase rise. Otherwise will avoid in favor of Pearl Izumi in future.
I've used the Giro Men's Chrono Expert Shorts on commutes to work, to all day rides and they fit and feel great! These shorts are very comfortable. At first I was skeptical about these shorts compared to other name brands, but these shorts held up very well. I didn't even need any chamois creams or anything. Got mine on a deal so they were definitely a deal for me.
