Funky Pants have produced a fantastic range of cycling shorts and bibs alongside their running/gym pants. Made from the same Polyspandex Lycra fabric, they are high quality yet affordable. R750 for their cycling shorts is money well spent. They also have bibs (R800) and ¾ lengths (R800) available. And they even have trisuits! (R1,100)
The shorts pull up quite high which means that you don’t get a gap between your cycling top and shorts when leaning forward riding. The inside hem on the thigh has a soft rubbery plastic, in funky pants writing!, which stops them from moving up your leg as you ride. The Italian cycling pad is very comfortable. Tested on both the road and mountain with no discomfort!
The worst thing about these cycling shorts is that it’s hard to find a cycling top to match and not clash!
