These shorts are highly functional. Their exclusive strapless design guarantees comfort and great adaptability. The body of the shorts is the same as the Dicolor model but the straps are removed and replaced with a comfortable elastic band that adjusts perfectly to the waist. Sitting just a few centimetres above the waist, this band allows for a perfect fit and added support. HARTU is designed for spending long hours on the seat.

Nice looking and fitting shorts. I'm 5'8" & 65kgs and small were perfect. They are good quality and the padding is good but not as good as LG shorts I have but the price in the sale was really competitive
Outstanding shorts! The chamois is very close to some of the premium brands I use. In terms of comfort, the fabric leg grippers are the best. I am using these under baggies for general commuting about town and while I still prefer bib shorts, the convenience of this for city riding is great.

Excellent short at a great price. Far better padding than my others shorts. As always, Merlin with their excellent pricing and fast shipping
Use this short every day with my bike to work and the pad is excellent.
All I can about these is that they are the best shorts I have ever worn. I have Castelli, Sportful, Rh+ and the padding in these is unreal. I usually take a medium, had both medium and small because I wanted them badly and the small is perfect and the medium is great. Not a hell of a lot of difference. Can`t wait for them to be on sale again
Never purchased or used Etxeondo clothing before and I must say that for the price, (although in the sale) the quality is top notch, fit and feel is excellent and very comfortable to wear. The only gripe and it is a very minor one is the lack of silicon leg grippers, I just might have to buy some more at the end of the month.
Once again delivery was very speedy form Merlin, another winner!
Very good cycling short. It will even be better with straps. Good value. Medium is good fir for 30-32" waist with no beer belly.
Bought these shorts in S size, perfect for 172 cms and 72 kgs. It's a little bigger then S size from assos or castelli. They fit perfectly without straps. Still made in Spain, no cheap china products...
An excellent pair of shorts. Well made and sewn. The pad is outstanding, on a par with that in my Assos shorts. Excellent value given the price. I bought them to wear under un-padded winter longs and they almost seem too good for that.
Just completed the BHF London to Brighton off road MTB event wearing these. Conclusion - no sore bits so I would have to rate these highly. I'm a 32" waist medium build and large was fine. Have had a problem with other Etexondo leg grippers being a bit loose but these were fine. I'm currently using these as under shorts under my Endura Hummvees
These are beautiful shorts, well made as ever by Etxeondo. Recommend wearing with long jersey in order to prevent accidental belly exposure :)
Little concerned about the sizing but went for a Large and the fit is perfect, the best thing is that they don't slip (up or down) and some compression too. Perfect for hot days riding in Spain this summer and now for the daily commute. Highly recommended.
Great shorts that have a really good pad. I bought the XL as I am 6 ft tall and 89kgs and these shorts fit nicely
These fit perfect + great quality. Trust the size chart.
First experience with this (Basque?) brand. Despite being at the lower end of their range price wise, materials, workmanship and design seem very good. Pad does the job and the fit is snug - looks pretty snazzy. Only concern is one panel per leg, plus wide (comfortable) waistband, unlike multi-panel versions. Maybe it's circular-knit technology and will keep it's shape - time will tell. Impressed so far.
Very comfortable shorts, good padding around the saddle area, feels great around the thighs, great compression .
Great fit, very comfy on longer rides they stay up without bib style braces.
As usual great service from Merlin, low price and fast delivery too.
Great shorts which make my longer rides more comfortable.
Very comfortable; I rode 60 miles with no problems at all. It is hard to imagine getting a better pair of shorts at this price.
As with all Etxeondo clothing these shorts are stylish and well made. I have purchased these shorts previously and find them comfortable to wear on long rides especially on hot days when bib shorts can be to warm.

Great shorts in blue or red. The leg grips were felt each muscle flex for the first 100 km then disappeared.
Great price on sale and I love the colours. Smooth lines and no bunching up. A great look.
One of my favourite all time shorts. Good fit, very comfortable waist band. Best of all there are no rubber leg grippers at all, the fabric holds in place on its own. I find this is a real comfort bonus on long sweaty summer rides.
