    Comments about Louis Garneau Pro Max 2 Shorts:

    Recreational road cyclist averaging 130 miles a week. 6'2", 200 lbs. with a 34" waist. Medium size shorts fit perfectly. As others have noted - the lettering on the shorts start to peel off over time, but there is no adverse effects, other than esthetics. I have bought several pairs and believe they are an excellent bargain.

    I use them for road cycling and they are very comfortable
    They also have a true fit. The only thing I would do differently is to use a non elastic drawstring.

        Comments about Louis Garneau Pro Max 2 Shorts:

        I like to ride 25 to 70 mile rides, do a couple of week longs rides and will ride 2500 miles in a WI season. This season I put probably 750 miles on these shorts and they will chafe on back to back 50 mile rides. Some of my favorite shorts have been LG ...these will not make the cut.

          Comments about Louis Garneau Pro Max 2 Shorts:

          I am a year round commuter. I bike to and from work for a total of 20 miles a day, 5 days a week, through all sorts of weather (Minnesota). I have tried numerous well known as well as some not so well known brands of cycling shorts over the last several years of riding. Nothing comes close to the riding comfort that these Garneau shorts provide. Absolutely no chafing or any sort of discomfort with these! Bought 3 of these already and will be buying a couple more to round out the week. Throwing away the rest of my "collection" of ill-fitting, torture inducing so called cycling shorts. My privates have persevered through enough trial and error! :)

          I chose the size Large. I am 205 LB, 5'11 with a 36 inch waist. The Large fits me comfortably snug around the waist, buttocks and thighs. There are complaints about these fitting a little snug. Disregard them. Snug fit = no chamois movement = no chafing. Insist on your shorts fitting snug. Hope this helps. Buy them with confidence.

          Look good, but chamois is bulky

          Comments about Louis Garneau Pro Max 2 Shorts:

          I'm torn. Leaving aside the chamois, I really like the fit, look, and construction of these shorts. But the chamois is so bulky, it creates an uncomfortable pinch point restricting blood flow for me, even using a cut-out saddle. I've tried these shorts on a couple of different saddles, and I fear the discomfort may be too much to live with.

                Sweet value, perfect for training some high mile weeks, the drawstring can cut a little on the but it's a otherwise great pair of shorts.

                    Not as good as the previous iteration of this short. My old pairs have better padding currently than these brand new. Numb nether region on a 45 min ride is just not fun.
