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!
The shorts are very comfortable, stay in place and I love the leopard print! I was really impressed by the great customer service I received when the shorts didn’t fit. I was quickly sent a new pair and Samsara followed up to make sure that the new size fit well.
