Mens Cycling short features:

Panel construction: In the past, a greater number of panels (typically 6 or 8) correlated to a more comfortable fit. While this is still generally true, fabric technology has progressed to the point that the number of panels doesn’t necessarily mean “better” for everyone.

Padded liner: A smooth, soft pad of “chamois” (actually made of synthetic) minimizes friction, wicks moisture, prevents bacterial growth and helps cushion bumps. It’s the most complex part of a bike short. There are a multitude of shapes, thicknesses and materials among brands and genders. Some guidelines:
Short liner

Multi-density, open-cell foam liners deliver high-end performance and comfort for long rides.
Gel/open-cell foam liners offer greater recreational or mountain-bike cushioning but are less breathable on long, hot rides.
Closed-cell foam liners offer good performance at a lower cost.
Legs: Longer-cut legs and leg grippers prevent saddle chafing and keep shorts in place.
Waist style: Most road shorts feature stretchy but non-adjustable spandex. A yoga-style cut offers less-restrictive comfort in some women’s styles.

Tip: All of the bike-short padding in the world will not make up for an uncomfortable or poorly adjusted bike seat.

Other styles of bike shorts include:

Mountain bike shorts: Sometimes called “baggies,” these have a loose outer short in addition to the spandex chamois liner. The waist is fastened by a button or hook-and-look patch. Pockets are also common. Choose these by their features and quality of construction, but also make sure the cut of the outer shorts feels comfortable and allows for full leg rotation and flexibility.

Bib shorts: Popular with cycling enthusiasts but a comfortable option for any rider, these don’t have an elastic waistband that can restrict breathing. Worn with a jersey, they look like any other bike shorts.

Skorts: For women, some brands make cycling skorts, where the spandex short is covered by a skirt. Skorts can be worn on the road, mountain or even around town.
