Ground Effect Sputniks Shorts

Ground Effect Sputniks Shorts 

DESCRIPTION

Expedition issue cycling shorts as worn by Vladimir under his spacesuit on the ill-fated "Tour de la Lune". Constructed from tough Nylon Lycra with a moulded synthetic "chamois" pad to deliver plush, long range comfort and durability. Dead easy to care for and they dry out faster than a fast thing.

Strength:

Durable beyond comparison. I've had two pairs for over 5 years (2 years spent MTB racing) and they work like new.

Weakness:

Can't resist buying more ground effect gear ;-)

If you want bike shorts that are comfortable, last a long time and at a good price this is it.

Strength:

Comfortable

Weakness:

life of pad

Nice comfy shorts, but after a few months (using once / twice a week) they feel more like a pair of lycra jocks, rather than cycling specific shorts with a chamois! The padding is dead. They are strong, but if you want the pad to last longer, try something else. I love my other GE stuff though, just disappointed with these

Strength:

Very comfortable, very durable.

Weakness:

I don't own 7 pairs

Great set of shorts that last forever. I've had mine four years, I wear them to and from work every week day and on rides most weekends, they just seem to last forever!

Strength:

Comfy. Durable. Cheap.

Weakness:

None

A great pair of knicks. Keep me happy on 100k+ rides on my hardtail. Hard to justify spending more on anything else.
