Great shorts, really comfortable and fit nicely. I haven't yet used them for swimming as usually wear a tri-suit, but they are great for cycling, and don't have a ridiculously over-padded seat like some cycle shorts! Thanks Sweaty Betty.

Fab cycle shorts
I love these for short cycles. Wear with matching top. Look great, useful pocket, comfy, good length. Please more cycle gear.

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.

Great design, flattering and vibrant compared to all the black cycling shorts out there. Padding is light/medium so perfect for a spin class, a short ride or olympic distance triathlon. I have swum in these for a triathlon and they are great in the water, snug fit, no bunching and no drag and the fabric dried really quickly.
Shame no zip pocket at the back for the door key.

These are slightly longer than the "Zoom" shorts and just the perfect fit. The fabric is like a light compression and easily goes on or off even when wet from sweating. The multi color panels make it easy to coordinate tops with these shorts.

Top of short rolls down
Though the tri-shorts seemed to fit well and were comfortable when I sat down the top felt like it wanted to roll down. Don't imagine doing the bike part of the race in these then!!! I think SB struggles with women with shapes. No problems with returns or service.

My cross-training shorts
I actually bought these shorts for rowing - the padding comes in very handy.
A good comfortable fit, they cope well with the movement required in rowing, as flattering as tight stretch fabric can be...
My only complaint is that there is no zip pocket for keys, phone, other things you don't want to fall in the water...

Not really the best cycle shorts I have tried and the matching top was a poor fit, so unfortunately had to send them back. The design is good and would be great with a shorter racer back type top for summer cycling

The shorts are very comfortable, true to size and well-made. I highly recommend them.

Oh dear.... Normally everything is so well thought through. These shorts are good (short, padded nicely for cycling) if you ignore the fact that the pink bits on the side are so see through you can see your pants and the pocket has no zip on it so there's nowhere to put keys, phone etc. Sorry Sweaty Betty.....
