Shorts held up well on a 90 minute ride. Looking forward to testing them out on longer rides. Comfortable in the saddle and I like both the higher waist band and longer length. They look super cute too and got lots of compliments. Way more fun than basic black.
Enjoying them very much!
The best cycling pants I have ever owned. Thank you for the perfect design. They r beautiful too!!
More often than not women sacrifice performance for style only to be left uncomfortable in the saddle and searching for another pair. The Samsara 9” performance short is my go-to indoor cycling short for comfort and style. Samsara has nailed the chamois a.k.a. padding so I can focus on my ride. It’s no surprise that Samsara is designed by women, for women.
I am on my second pair of the 9" inseam cycling shorts and OMG THANK YOU! After three plus decades of making do with boy shorts and being chafed in all the wrong curvy parts I can definitely assert that this is the cycling short all women should own. And they come in groovy cool colours. I'm a fan!
