A perfect fit, and the smaller padding is perfect for spinning.
These tights are so comfortable and have a beautiful pattern. I usually wear a small in cycling shorts and these are true to size.
This capri cycling tight is very comfy. It is a great weight to take you from cycling shorts when the temperature is a little cooler, but doesn’t call for a full length tight.
The artist camo pattern is stylish and pairs well with different tops. The fit seems a bit higher in the back than the black palm tights that I purchased last year (there has been a slight design modification). I have a short torso and so the change wasn’t an improvement for me, but still extremely comfortable. I use them for both cycling in Vancouver and playing pickleball. Absolutely perfect for either! The comments I made last year about the black palm tights apply to these one:
"The fabric looks and feels luxurious and they are very well made; the stitching is top notch. Both the waist band and the legs of the tights stay in place from start to finish. No sagging or slipping. The padding is streamlined and does wonders to ensure a comfortable ride. The fit is just perfect, thanks to a good sizing chart, and excellent online and in-store service. It truly is a pleasure to cycle in these tights.”
BTW, all three pairs of my Samsara tights rinse out well and still look and feel like new. So happy to have found Samsara!
I like how they fit when I am on the bike, especially how they actually cover my back. I have a long torso so this can be a problem for me.
