Comments about Alpinestars Bionic Free Ride Shorts:
After trying a few shorts, the Bionics felt the most secure. The coverage is good with hard thigh and tailbone protection, and cushioning around the hips and crotch. The hard shell on the thighs and back is key to providing abrasion resistance. A lot of other shorts that just have soft armor which is good for impact, but not abrasion. These were thin enough for me to wear under my regular pair of jeans. If you wear tight jeans you will have problems.One issue is if you are sitting with them on a hard surface, you can really feel the tailbone protector. Also, no fly opening, so you have to pull them down to use the restroom.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Sizes are not correct
By Big Daddy
from Fredericksburg VA
I bought the Bionic Free Ride Shorts to provide hip impact protection superior to what comes with riding pants. Since BikeBandit did not have the waist measurements for the small, med, large, etc, I went to Alpinestars website and found it there, I ordered what should have fit me, but it turned to be so mall that they actually hurt to wear. While I haven't seen the credit yet, BikeBandit did not hesitate to tell me to return them. I will probably order them again at least 2 sizes larger because the only other way I can get really hard armor for my hips is to make my own which gets old after a while.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
