These are the most practical and comfy cycling shorts ever. The pad is comfy but not bulky. The waistband stays up without cutting in. Some would say these are basic black (and they are) but they are classic and go with everything.
Overall the shorts are good -my only concern is with the padding. As others have mentioned, the padding location is off - much higher in back than in front. This wouldn’t be good if riding in drops or aero for long. Otherwise the fit is as expected and normal quality. This is my first pair of cycling shorts from Coeur so a little disappointed - not sure if I will buy more.
The placement of the padding is strange. It comes up so far in the back (to the tailbone) and only comes through the middle part way. It’s not protecting the parts it is intended to protect. Most of my cycling/tri kits are Coeur and I love the brand. Unfortunately, these will be going back.
I knew enough to size up, so that wasn’t an issue for me. I love the fabric, love the leg bindings, love the chamois. They’re Way too short in the rise, however. I’m constantly hitching them up and they’re uncomfortable because they creep down. Won’t be buying these again. :(
Coeur seems to be for very skinny people. Order size up from the usual. Or two sizes up
