Editors’ Choice: Best Cycling Shorts for Men and Women
Molly Hurford and Gloria Liu X October 9, 2013
These four cycling shorts and bibs for men and women won over our Editors’ Choice 2013 testers with their comfort and style
Women’s $80 Shorts: Terry Breakaway
Introduced this year, the Breakaway performed true to its name and separated itself from the competition, not surprising considering Terry has been making bike gear specifically for women for 25 years—and its saddles have long been favorites of female riders. Our testers raved about the unobtrusive chamois, pajama-soft fabric, and nonbinding waist and leg openings, which stayed in place without pulling or squeezing our legs as we pedaled. We also appreciated that Terry, a perennial Editors’ Choice finalist, makes the Breakaway in the United States. Some shopping advice: While the manufacturer says the shorts are designed to provide compression, most testers reported otherwise. Size down if you prefer a snugger fit.
