Rated 4 out of 5Â by Augusta Tall triathlete in training
Almost perfect. I am quite tall (5'11") and long in the body. I am new to triathlon and finding Tri suits etc difficult to obtain in a long body length so these shorts and the matching top are a great solution for me. I have tried a few other brands but all are too short in the body. These shorts are smaller than a Sweaty Betty xl usually comes up and would work better for me if the rise was slightly higher but the fabric and padding position etc are great - v comfy in my spin class. The rubber on the inside of the bottom of the legs grips brilliantly but is slightly too snug really - not uncomfortable but makes my leg bulge out slightly under it which is not a good look. However, I am not sure how many people would notice this and I can live with it for the overall benefit of the product.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Cccycloneccc Tight shorts
These are too tight and unyielding, the waistband cuts into my abs when in cycling position, the medium are too big , the waist band gapes when I am in cycling position so can't recommend but love the style, had these in small in last yrs style and was v happy with them

Rated 1 out of 5Â by CurlyGirl1990 Zoom Tri Short
I purchased the tri shorts, for the London to Brighton bike ride. The shorts are a snug fit but flattering. I have found whenever I go for a bike ride the shorts give me a back ache, I have another pair of cycling shorts that do not give me the same problem. When I take the shorts of the pain instantly goes. I have of corse worn the shorts and I can not return them. I am really disappointed as I bought the spin top to match (which I love) for the ride this Sunday.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Wendj Ridiculously small
I couldn't get these on in s 'tho at same time other capri pants fitted. Why can't SB standardise its sizes as other clothing brands so sizes are same? I had to return which is costly as a European customer. Also v thin padding for cycling

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Busyfinn Great for swimming
I bought these mainly for swimming & running. They are really comfortable but quite a snug fit! Keep forgetting that SB small really is A Small!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by FitByForty Great shorts for spin!
I actually bought these for spin classes as I am not a triathlete and they were in the sale, so I can't comment as to whether they're good value and / or fit for purpose! They look great, and are very comfortable, helping me stay cool in class. Waistband stays in place, as do the hems, which is great. I do find the fabric to be itchy though - even though it's 'sensitive', and I can never ever find those pockets when I'm wearing them!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Poodles Ideal for spinning
Nice shorts for spinning but pad a bit thin for long road rides in my opinion. Useful waist tie ensures snugg fit

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Elsa Lovely looking shorts, no good for long distance riding
I ended up returning these shorts, although they looked great and the fit was good there was not enough padding for longer rides. These would be great for shorter distance or spinning but I was looking for shorts that would be suitable for 60+ miles and these wouldn't be good enough. Generally love Sweaty Betty products and would be keen for them to make more cycling kit.
