Strengths:    Relatively low price.

Weaknesses:    Fabric was scratchy and heavyweight, better suited for cool weather riding. Padding was a little on the thicker side. European fit, so if you are a larger rider...good luck getting the right fit. I wear a pair of L Izumi's, but the 3XL Santini's were way too tight. Very poor customer service from the dealer.

Bottom Line:   
Very disappointed, Bicycling Hub touts the shorts as winning Bicycling Magazines "Best Shorts Under $100" category. These shorts are a poor comparison to any of Boure's products and even the Performance shorts. Getting satisfaction in the return process will be very hard if you deal with Bicycling Hub.

Strengths:    chamois is far more comfortable, far cooler and far better constructed than anything else I've seen. Unfortunately I crashed Saturday and tore a small hole in the side. I like bibs these days, so these suit me fine.

Weaknesses:    Not widely available in the U.S.-I came by my first pair in Italy. I found a great price and service at a few months ago- 2 pair of bibs for $100

Bottom Line:   
BEST damn shorts period!
then when you see the price...if you buy castelli or've fallen for their marketing hype!!
