The new Eleanor Chammy is our most versatile chammy yet. It carries over some of our favorite features (hello high waist and world-class Italian padding) while making some critical improvements. Meet our new leg bands, crafted from Italian single ply poly/elastic blend, with sleek silicon backing so they stay put perfectly (no rolling or riding up!).
Made with soft and compressive recycled poly/spandex blend, the Eleanor Chammy was designed to keep you going on long, multi-day rides but is low profile enough for a quick morning spin on your at-home bike. Oh, and did we mention two new side pockets??
Pair it with our new matching sports bra for the most swoon-worthy indoor cycling kit. Shop the sports bra now >>

At first, I thought these were a good fit but I'm realizing they run a bit large. I typically wear a size 8 or Medium in chamois but the wild rye 8's are pretty loose. The legs also tend to ride up while I'm pedaling which causes fabric to bunch up in my crotch and make me chafe. They aren't the worst chamois i've ever had in regards to chafe/saddle sores–I can still wear them on smaller rides.
I do LOVE the prints of these too. I wish I realized I was rocking the wrong size before I invested in a couple of them (those damn beautiful prints lured me in haha). They are also really comfortable when I'm off the bike (i love the wide waist band). Maybe one day I will try a size 6 and see if that resolves some of the issues like the legs riding up.
Love the design. The material is stretchy and a bit lighter weight than expected, which turns out great when you're hot and sweaty. I may consider one size down next time.
These are awesome! They are the perfect length and the cushion is amazing. I notice a huge difference when I wear these and my other chammies biking, with these my butt is less sore the next day! The only thing is that the waist could be a bit tighter. I am 5'8 140lbs and I have an athletic lean build. My butt and legs are muscular and my waist is small, so I had to size up a little and get size 6 to fit my legs and butt but the waist is kind of big.
These adorable shorts fit and feel great - they're not too tight, but they don't slip either. I love the pockets on the side and the wide waistband! I've got curvy/powerful thighs and the sizing is spot on.
Love this thing!
