Moto-Skiveez are well worth the price

(May 15, 2016) Last October, I ordered a pair of Moto-Skiveez riding shorts (shown in the photo to the left*). This is the third brand I've tried in the way of padded riding shorts. I won't name the others, but will say that the first brand I tried helped only a little and the second brand made me feel like I took a dump in my pants.

The Moto-Skiveez shorts work great! I have worn them on multiple multi-hundred-mile rides this spring and can say definitively that they greatly reduce the pressure on the base of my spine.

At almost $60 per pair, they ain't cheap; but I ordered a second pair today so I have two pairs for my 7,200+ mile ride scheduled for next month. (I also ordered two pairs of compression socks.)

If you decide to give these shorts a try, be sure to read the information on the Moto-Skiveez web site carefully. The company has designed several different variations of the shorts to best fit your style/posture of riding.

The key to the way these shorts work is the padding and the great fit, which in part results from the comfortable material they use. In the photo at right, you can see the padding. For my backside, it creates a well-positioned comfort-zone for the base of my spine.

I recently purchased a custom Corbin saddle for my bike and up until yesterday, I had always worn these shorts on my long rides in combination with the new saddle, so I couldn't gauge the relative contribition of the Moto-Skiveez to my comfort. Yesterday, I found out! After only about 50 miles, my tail bone (coccyx) began to hurt. I instantly appreciated that targeted padding.

Moto-Skiveez shorts are a great investment for those who ride hundreds of miles in a day. I highly recommend them.

*Please ignore the little dots of lint on the shorts. I made the mistake tossing them in the dryer with other laundry. My advice is to air dry these shorts; it will make them last longer and keep them nice looking.
