Any experience with Voler clothing?(9 posts)

Any experience with Voler clothing?RCole
Nov 3, 2002 8:36 AM
Looking for some quality cycling clothing and came across Velowear.com. They have some cycling tights and knickers at fairly good prices. Anybody here try these? How are their "Cantara" chamois/pads? Any other online shops recommended for good quality gear and prices?

Thanks!

I have a few pair of their team shorts and love them! The beauty part is their no hassle return policy. They even go so far as to send you a paid return envelope if the stuff doesn't fit! I do think, however, that their sizing is a bit off for shorts. On their little scale, I should wear a large, but I couldn't get them on! The XL fit perfectly.
If you have big legs and/or ass (me), get one size larger than they say! I have some jerseys and a vest that all fit true to size.
The team shorts material is thick, which leads me to believe that it may last a bit longer and the chamois is very comfortable. Overall, their clothing is a great value!

... Volers represent a decent value especially in an 8 panel bib/short... Their whole line appears to be of decent construction (with varied colors for those looking for something more than basic black (despite the arguments for black shorts (Robbie McEwen) I like the variety) and fit... and worth a try (about 50% of my current wardrobe is Voler). The pad works for my anatomy.

They also give you good customer service... and a free Tootsie or two...

We abide.

Remain In Light.

Be the bike.

I have four reg shorts, a pair of knickers, and two jerseys, all bought at various sales over the past three years or so. All very good quality and excellent value. The cantara pad is very comfortable, at last for my anatomy. YBMV
Highly recommendedTREKY

I don't have experience with shorts but all my favorite jersey's are Voler.They fit better across the chest than any of my others and the pockets seem to be a little deeper.The taper in the waist is really good for smaller waists.
Wore their bib knickers today and yesterdayTig

Of the many shorts I have from different manufacturers, Volers have become my favorites. They have exactly what I need in a short at a great price. The Cantara pad is better than most IMO. I also have their shorts.
Very happy with my Voler stuff (NM)biknben
