Cannondale Flux Baggies

A few weeks ago I picked up a pair of black and green Cannondale Flux baggies to usher in the fall riding season.  The first thing I noticed about these shorts is how well they are made! They are made of durable material with mesh windows that allow them to breathe, flat locked seams and the waist is very reinforced with 2 buttons; as well as an elastic/Velcro adjustment on each side eliminating the need for a belt!    Not only were they high quality but the chamois(the pad in the liner shorts) was removable making them an excellent option for wearing off the bike!

I would say the chamois in the liner offers good support with a modest thickness and a higher density then most baggies making this a comfortable short, even for the two rides over 7 hours I have worn them.  The shorts have 3 built in zipper pockets, one on each thigh as well as one down on the leg.  These pockets and their zippers were positioned in a way that you never notice them at any point of the pedal stroke. Another bonus because on some other shorts the pockets create a stiff spot that can chaff on longer rides.

I would give these shorts two thumbs up.  They do a good job of breathing to let moisture out even in rainy weather they do not feel saturated or heavy!  The one negative(if you could call it that) is that they run big so you will most likely need a size smaller than normal!  Stop by the shop today and try on a pair!  You won't regret it!
