The 89 per cent Meryl, 11 per cent Lycra mix makes these extremely comfortable.

Despite my longish body, the narrow straps were slightly too long and caused some nipple-rub when worn without a base layer.

The pad gives great coverage, making them supportive and comfortable in the crotch and is plenty thick enough for long-ride comfort.

Everything stays put, with zero chafing on 70-mile plus rides, even without chamois cream.
