Dainese Hard Shorts vs. AStars Bionic Freeride
What will be the major differences between the Dainese Hard Short and the Alpinestars Bionic Freeride? They both seem to have hard protection at the thigh and coccyx and soft padding at the hip. At similar pricepoints, which is more protective at the hip? Which is more comfortable (riding and walking)?
Ok, I actually bought the Alpinestars bionic shorts at first, and was pretty disappointed. They felt REALLY UNCOMFORTABLE thanks to the material (some kind of under-armor type with netting over top) which when trying to get into a squat position, limited the range of motion. The Alpinestars shorts I think provide a bit more protection, but it really seemed to get in the way. Not very comfortable and not terribly easy to move in. Also, regarding the type and thickness of padding they have, they don't really offer much room while wearing under a race suit or jeans. Once I bought the Dainese hard shorts, all of these problems and concerns were laid to rest. Protection yet extremely comfortable. No problems. Hope this helped!
