Good-bye LuLu see-through effect

Ever notice the dreaded "LuLu" effect in bike shorts? You know - too many washings/seasons/wearings - whatever - and the material begins to peek-a-boo. Being thrifty and modest, the risk of embarrassment was always lurking. But these great bike shorts put an end to that. They are sleek and form fitting so they don't flap in the wind like gym shorts. They have a removable mesh liner with biker pad so comfortable for long hours on the bike and there is no fear of going see-through! One drawback is that they do seem a bit warmer then regular biking shorts but not overly so.

LOVE these shorts!

These shorts fit great, are comfortable and I love them for touring around on days when I don't feel like going "all out spandex." I can pop in to stores, cafes, pubs without feeling conspicuous in bike shorts.

The pockets, while nicely flat and safely zippered, are a bit awkward as you reach in at the side of your thighs towards the back.

All in all though, a great pair of shorts!

Great shorts

I bought these shorts to take on a bike trip this summer and found them to be true to size, stylish and a great product overall. The inner bike short lining with seat pad is removable, making these shorts very versatile. Nice pockets too. Great for travel or when you don't want to look like your wearing bike shorts!

Great Shorts

My sister bought a pair of these last week when her luggage didn't arrive in NYC and we had the 5 boro bike ride the next day. She couldn't stop raving about how comfortable they were and how the pockets were perfect because she couldn't even feel her camera as she rode. So I got them too!

Very comfortable for a long ride!

Overall these shorts run a little small - waist is adjustable with tabs so think about ordering one size up from your usual. Very comfortable on my bike and still look nice enough to wear around town.

Comfortable biking short; fit a bit snug

Comfortable to wear-haven't used for long biking yet (main purpose). Like style & versatility for traveling.

Negative Reviews:

Too small!

For some reason, EMS bike shorts run really small. I ordered XL, and I couldn't even pull them over my hips. I typically wear size large bike shorts. Other companies provide free return shipping, unlike EMS. So it cost me a bundle to send them back. It is unlikely that I will ever purchase clothing from EMS again.
If you want these shorts, buy at least 2 sizes larger than you normally wear, and hope for the best.
