Strengths:    Excellent protection

Weaknesses:    chamois is a little thin

Bottom Line:   
These are the best pair of padded compression shorts I've found to go underneath baggy shorts. The padding is excellent. It's in all the right places. The fit of the shorts are perfect. And, the pads stay in place while ridding. The only complaint I have is the chamois is a little thin, but not a deal breaker. I would buy these shorts all over again.

The picture shown is the ski version. The wheels version is all black, so make sure that is clear wherever you purchase them.

Strengths:    These shorts really surprised me. The polymer really does stiffen up on impacts. The material doesn't slide around. It heats up as you ride and becomes more comfortable to wear to the point that it isn't really noticed.

Weaknesses:    Don't leave it out in the cold

Bottom Line:   
worth it, saves my hips on impacts
