One day after training I came to the sad revelation that my select tri shorts were too tight at the thighs( I am younger and am gaining muscle in my thighs). I loved the select shorts but decided to buy these tri shorts. The first time I wore them I was amazed at the quality of these shorts. The chamois are VERY comfy and proved great padding yet drain out very quickly. They really keep you cool and are lightning fast for moisture transfer. These are amazing tri shorts and I highly recommend these.
