For those that have tried them, how did the size you ordered compare with the size of your regular undies?
I am a large for the briefs so should I get large in the Skiveez?

I wear extra L and that is what I ordered and they fit well. their size chart shows the waist size they fit. Seems pretty accurate.

Thanks for your interest in Moto-Skiveez. If anything our sizes tend to run a big bigger than most athletic style briefs. Our medium is 32"-34" and the sweet spot is more 34". Our large is 36"-38", and the feedback we are getting is that more 38ish is the best fit.

I usually recommend that if a person is in between size to opt for the smaller of the two choices. Our fabrics are quite stretchy, and I think the "Skiveez' perform a little better if they are more snug than loose.

I hope that helps and thanks again for considering Moto-Skiveez.

Do they have a design for women also? My wife complains about the seem in her undergarments as well as a sore bottom and I wondered if this product would solve those issues?

2014 FJR1300ES Metallic Black
2000 VFR800 Blue
2007 WR450f Blue
I strive for perfection but have settled for less!

Although many women have worn our product, the base short is really designed for male anatomy. We are finalizing our women's short and it should be available very soon. Thanks for your interest in Moto-Skiveez®.

I knew how helpful these are on longer rides but tonight after sitting on hard bleachers for the fireworks I found they make a world of difference just for overall comfort. I'm ordering more!

Hello,
thanks for your article.
I want to buy a pair but I am confused as to which type is suitable. My bike is a big Sports Tourer (FJR1300), half way between an adventure type upright position and a sports bike crouch.
Which of the three styles would you recommend?
Thank You.

I would love to try one but I will wait to see if they are ever on sale. A little high for my wallet. I'm sure they are a good product though!

My bike styles may change, but I always ride daily! Riding is Life!

Rocking Robin 'et al',

(Read post from Slupcho in this thread dated 01-29-2015 to start)

I have both the Adventure and the Cruiser models of Moto-Skiveez. I've ridden thousands of miles with each and they are both very good.

To begin, the Sport model is not suitable for an FJR as the padding is positions for a significant forward lean.

My FJRs both have bar risers (MCL on one and Motorrad on the other) - both these risers plates bring the bars up and back; therefore, my riding position is more upright than stock. I also have Laam seats which create a neutral seating position versus the stock seat which caused me to continuously slide forward (among other discomforts).

Based upon my experience, I suggest the following:

- if you have bars in the stock position and/or a stock seat, go for the Adventure model. The rationale is that the Adventure model provides better padding for the inner thighs and still provides good padding for the rear.

- if you have risers that bring the bars back and/or a seat that provides neutral seating, choosing either the Adventure or Cruiser models will work well. To determine which to buy, give consideration where your rear end connects with the seat and how you ride. If you primarily sit back on your rear and are prone to having the big sit bones getting sore, consider the Cruiser model. If you tend to sit forward a good portion of the time and back the other part of the time, coupled with your common discomfort points being more forward, consider the Adventure style.

These are both excellent products and in my view you can't go wrong with either model. They are stretchy is all directions, they do not cause overheating and they have add about 2 hours of comfort to my riding day. They can be worn for multiple days while on a trip and do not retain unpleasant odors. They are easy to wash in a hotel sink with a little mild soap and, when rolled in a towel to remove the bulk of the moisture, will dry overnight.
