First Impressions and Comments:
What initially caught my attention was it s price. The Epic Shorts are only $29.98, that’s at least a 50% discount for other name brand shorts. The material used to make the outer shorts are high in quality, very durable and breathable.
- Excellent price, $29.98!
- Quality workmanship, the shorts are double stitched for added strength
- Very breathable
- Hasn’t torn in the past 6 months that I’ve been wearing them
- Chamois is very comfortable
- Inside shorts/tights are spandex
- Leg grippers does not inch up while riding
- Available in many different colors
I didn’t see any weaknesses in the quality and function of the shorts at all. The only draw back to them is my height. Being only 5’7″ (on a good day) the shorts seemed a bit too long. But remember, those aren’t the short’s fault, its my parents….they aren’t the tallest people on earth. Other than that, I saw no flaw in the stitching, fabric nor the chamois.
The Price Point Epic Baggy shorts are a great deal for less than $30! I can’t find any other baggy shorts on line or in an LBS that sells baggies that affordable. I liked the flawless performance of the Epic’s and have even used them on two XC races and one charity ride. In fact, the Epics are the main shorts I use. I have another pair of baggy shorts from Performance that I don’t really care for anymore.
Would I recommend it? Yes I would. These shorts are a great value. They won’t break the bank, not like the other name brands that sell for twice as much. The Epics are perfect for the guy that wants great biking shorts and that is on a strict budget.
