i've done a couple long rides (leadville, 5x creampuff, 24 hr solo, lotsa 5-8 hr deathmarches). by far, my favorite shorts are voler.

for multi-lap events (creampuff) i changed shorts every lap. no shorts are as nice as a clean dry pair.

What are some favorite shorts that hold up for hours in the saddle? I'm not thrilled with the PI's I have currently..
What PI shorts? I just did the Laramie Enduro yesterday in the 3D Microsensors - they were nice and comfy the entire time.

All my shorts are the ultrasensors..and since I've started doing longer rides several times a week, I'm quite sore and chafed :(

I think I'm going to check out the Voler's to start..gotten good feedback on those..and they're less expensive!

I bought a few pairs of Assos shorts including 3/4 length and full leg for night and winter riding and I am totally impressed with the Chamois - Did a 6hr road ride in them with my little SLR and had no problems at all.

My Shorts of Choice are....

I have fallen in love with the Pearl Izumi Microsemsor 3D bib short, a.k.a Giant-Pearl Izumi Team bibs. These shorts combined with a healthy helping of Chamois Cream equals All-Day-Comfort. I have done many 12 and 24 hour races in these shorts in a variety of weather conditions, and have had no problems.

Remember, take everything you read on your post lightly, cause everybodys "nether" region is different in size and shape. It's like finding your perfect saddle. i bet you never got that right on the first shot?
