Can you get running shorts with cycle shorts inside?

Hi all, at the moment I run in some Nike drifit 4" shorts that are just above the knee, there the ones with the mesh underweat built in, thig is id like to get something similar with cycle shorts built in so I dont chaffe etc, in the winter i wear skins so its fine but for now id like some shorts with cycle short inside, is there such a thing?


  • Triathlon shorts perhaps? They're intended for bike riding and running.

    Tri shorts or a tri-suit if you want the padding, which is more minimal than normal cycling shorts padding so it's easier to run in, or if you don't need the padding, what about lycra shorts with normal shorts over the top?
  • These are good, there are longer than 4" but are still just above the knee.

    They look pretty nifty!
  • I've got some Nike longer shorts with a lycra undershort built in. Fairly comfy but can be a bit warm/sweaty during the summer months. Have you tried some vasaline or bodyglide to help with the chaffing?

    Yeah they are, I can vouch for them .  No chaffing here. image

  • Badly drawn bloke what make ae your splease, any links cheers?

    Thanks guys for the replies, am i right in thinking inner cycle shorts means no chaffing like when i wear my full leg skins in the winter.

  • Sorry when i said cycling shorts underneath i dont mean the padding, just the lycra material inside, i wont be cycling in them just running.
  • Mark - the shorts I have a Nike.  Have a look here as they also have the kind of shorts I think you mean.
  • Thanks, no chaffing then? Are they comfy for you?

    why not just wear lycra running shorts?? why do you think you need the extra layer??

    There is only one F in chafing, gentlemen image

    And what FB said - why bother with the over-shorts?

  • Mark - I don't suffer from chafing (thanks Miss Wilkie - here's a shiny green apple) on the thigh so can't really comment on that.  The full lined ones are comfy though.

    But FB is right, why worry about over shorts?  Give the ladies a thrill image

    I'd feel a bit naked in the lycra shorts I wear.  Not enough tackle support...

    Mine are from Decathlon, BTW.

  • i had a pair from decathlon that had the lycra inside but i found the outer layer rides up and the lycra caused more chafing when that rode up too than normal shorts. I occasionaly wear lycra shorts under my other shorts but only if its cold
  • Check out the Salomon XR Shorts or the Exo 2 Wings Shorts

    I favour Underarmour Boxer Shorts with normal running shorts over the top though

    You're just boasting.

    Another vote for just wearing lycra shorts.  No-one cares what you look like when you're running and what do you care if someone is eyeing up the contents of your shorts?

  • I wear UnderArmor but cover up.

    Ladies, do you cover up your top half when running or just go out in your Sports Bra? I would guess most cover up for the same reason most blokes wear something on top of their compression gear...

    "most blokes wear something on top of their compression gear"

    most?? you sure about that?? most guys I see wearing lycra runners don't have another layer over.

    what's to cover up?? your embarrassment I guess of having a cock - just like 100% of all other blokes.

    try moving into the 21st century

    and many ladies I see running in summer are in crop tops - no bras under. same principle applies.

    I would assume all blokes that you see wearing lycra runners don't have another layer over - the reason being those that do have a layer over theirs, you can't tell whether or not they are wearing anything else underneath...
