Date Reviewed: July 24, 2002

Strengths:    inexpensive

Weaknesses:    cut too low on the back (crack)/cheap, thin chamois

Bottom Line:   
These shorts aren't bad for summer use because they are very thin (nylon and chamois). The inner short doesn't feel at all snug. If you like your package to stay put, this short doesn't do a very good job of it. The back of the shorts aren't cut high enough for some. It's not a bad starter short.

Strengths:    Cheap

Weaknesses:    Logo

Bottom Line:   
I have used these shorts for about three years now. Amazingly, no stitches have come loose and the fabric still looks like new. I wash them by machine after every ride and they are still doing great. I just recently replaced them simply because the logo has started to wear in the past few months. The fit seems okay but, admittedly, I have not tried any real high-end shorts. Frankly, I never felt the need.

Strengths:    Cheap

Weaknesses:    Cheap Construction
Supergo Logo
Poor Fit

Bottom Line:   
I figured that for the $30 that Supergo was asking for these things, they would be decent and get me through the summer. Wrong! After only a couple of rides, the right leg of the shorts began to fray and completely come apart. I called Supergo so that I could warranty out the shorts and they told me that they could take a return, but they would charge me a restocking fee! After significant complaining, they agreed to let me return the shorts for warranty, with their inspection and approval. That was three days ago. I'll let you know what happens.

Date Reviewed: March 22, 2000

Strengths:    Cheap price, sturdy construction

Bottom Line:   
These are great shorts for the price. The best part is that after many washes they look and feel no worse than when I bought them. The only slight draw back is the huge supergo logo on the leg. So you advertise for the company, who really cares?

Strengths:    Price, customer support

Weaknesses:    No Leg grippers on women's version

Bottom Line:   
I got the women's pair for my wife and they didn't have any leg grippers. They would ride up as she bent her leg and bunch up. Supergo said they would give a full refund. We'll see.

heavy lycra, comfortable fit, quality elastic, cheap


Bottom Line:   
I was really surprised by these shorts. You get a good price because they have there logo on the legs. But they are high quality and really durable, I've taken some tough hits on hard pack and haven't even scuffed the shorts. A real bargain for $30.

My favorite mountain bike shorts

Just thought I would post up my favorite mountain bike shorts in case anyone is looking for something decent and doesn't have a real bike shop nearby (like me) Troy Lee Skyline: Very simple design, and very well fitting (I wear a 33-34 and bought the 34), no zippers, no vents, but breathe well en ...

Mtn Bike Shorts Question-What Type?

Sorry, but I did not search this topic. Took the easy way out here: I'm looking for shorts that have ample pockets, not overly baggy cause those hang up on the seat, with or without integrated padding, that can replace the comfort of road bike shorts. I'm just back into MTB after many years away o ... Read More »
