The Canari Cyclewear Men’s M Gel Cycling Liner Short turns a short into a cycling short when worn as an under garment. Personally I just wear them under my regular baggy cycling shorts for the padding and easy washing.
What is good about this Cycling Liner Short
Padding – for protection while cycling against saddle sores and chafing, particularly if on a long ride. The gel system is designed to spread the shock throughout while riding. This gel will not overheat and migrate or leak unlike petroleum based styles.
Breathable Fabric – lightweight polyester with a durable mesh fabric which breathes well.
Construction – 4 panels along with a 1 1 /2” waistband and padding.

What customers say Canari Cyclewear Men’s M Gel Cycling Liner Short
There were lots of positive reviews about these bike liner shorts. One reviewer stated that “a secret known by pro cyclists for years is that wearing two pairs of cycling shorts is a good way to add protection against saddle sores and chafing” and I agree.
Several reviewers mentioned that although these may be intended to be worn under regular shorts to make them usable for cycling, but an even better use for them is to wear them inside padded cycling shorts for added padding which is what I personally do as well.
Numerous reviewers found them comfortable to ride in, felt the padding is perfect and not excessive in size or thickness and that the shorts do not ride up at all. The also said that the wicking seems fine.
There were mixed reviews regarding the padding with many remarking that the material appears to be resistant to wear and the pad provides good cushioning while other felt the padding was too thin.
One reviewer said, “I just completed the Bicycle Ride Across Nebraska which was seven straight days in the saddle averaging 65 to 70 hard miles each day, some of which was over some pretty choppy road surfaces. I wore quality cycling shorts with Canari Gel Cycle Liners under them every day and had zero hot spots or saddle sores.”
