  • Altura Gel Mens Shorts

    The Altura Gel Mens Shorts has an 8 panel design for a close and comfortable fit whilst still giving you complete mobility. Made from lycra, they can help with vibration absorption. The shorts also boast silicone grippers which stop them from bunching and have a reflective trim, which is great when you are cycling in those lower light conditions.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by Not bad for under 30 mile rides Bought these after reading several positive reviews and to be honest they are not a bad pair of shorts. Well up to 30 miles. Anyway after getting some discomfort 30 miles plus spoke to several of my friends and advise me to get a pair of bib shorts which I did. They were great for keeping the padding in place where it needs to be. If Alterra do a pair of bib shorts of the same design would strongly recommend it. Issue is price is a little steep £40 for a pair of shorts okay not bad but you can get a decent pair of bib shorts for £50 and they will keep you comfortable for 50+ miles. If you are part time cyclist, clocking up under 30 miles then get them definitely. 02 September 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfy shorts for all types of cycling Brought 2 pairs for longer rides as my foam padded shorts are simply not good enough without pain at the end of 40+ miles. I can recommend these they really are quality from the start the pad fits really well,tough lycra & great finish I hope they last a few years not cheap but you get what you pay for ! No doubt there is better out there but at much higher cost £ for comfort worth every penny. Saw a few comments about size & fit mine where fine I fit medium so brought med,now I've got big thighs so can run into problems not here safe to say. 17 July 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by An excellent product! I purchased a pair of these shorts to protect my undercarriage over a 100km ride around London. Having completed that ride, I cannot recommend them highly enough! They fit well, and protect from saddle-soreness superbly. They helped to make a challenging ride a comfortable one. 09 June 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Altima gel cycling shorts Great product , more comfortable than the pair I bought earlier this year at double the price. 09 September 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by A good pair of shorts I used them for the first time on a 50 mile ride. At first the gel pad felt thin compare to my other shorts and I was worried that I had made the wrong choice, but they turned out to be fine . 19 August 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Always great shorts I already had one pair of these shorts but needed more! They are extremely comfortable and hard wearing. Would recommend. 18 August 2015
    Rated 4 out of 5 by One slight reservation I agree with all the other reviewers, but have one reservation. The gel padding has an imprint "Pro Gel" just where my right buttock rests and is a bit uncomfortable. I cycle 50+ miles two or three times a week and by the time I got home I was a bit sore. Why the imprint is placed in such a ridiculous place is beyond me. Didn't someone realise that is where all the pressure rests. I also agree with the sizing. Get the size bigger than you would normally. 07 June 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Buy I have a couple of pairs of these shorts and they have been a good buy. I have used them frequently for 10-100 mile bike rides with no problems. 19 June 2015
