Ride Inside Crop
I tried these on in black in the store and honestly was surprised that I ended up liking these as much as I did. These crops are comfortable and I don't feel the panels on the side are too revealing at all. Fun, unique and very comfortable.

Awesome, but the pink is too sheer
I received these in the mail last week, I bought the black ones with the baby pink colour on the back (the pink strip is right on the top of the underwear line). I put them on and loved them immediately, except when I turned around! The pink strip was so sheer that you could see my light grey thong underwear right through. I loved the structure of these pants so much that I considered only wearing them with nude coloured underwear but that's ridiculous for $88 crops. Also, they are not padded which I prefer for spinning anyway.
I know the founder of Lululemon said that not every woman's body is made for Lulu pants, but I am a size 4 fitness instructor (spinning, actually). It's not my fault that the fabric is so sheer. That is such an inappropriate thing to say - take responsibility for defective clothing instead of trying to blame the customer.
I liked these crops so much that I will be repurchasing in all black, but please ladies, don't buy the black/pink! However, if I found comparable crops from a competitor, I would be going elsewhere.

Sexy Crops Good for Gym Go-To
The lack of padding for an indoor cycle class renders the name something of a misnomer, but these crops are a good quality purchase. The luxtreme and mesh are very breathable, and they are VERY flattering. The mesh is sexy but not overt, and the seams on the backside shrink your bottom. The high rise is GREAT for movement in and out of the saddle. I've worn these to teach indoor cycle and during my gym sessions and receive plenty of compliments. I think these fit TTS--I am 5'1", 129# and a size 4 worked great!

Couldn't be happier
I'm an avid spinner, and like other spinners, I work up a sweat. These crops are fantastic, light and are everything I've been looking for in a new pair of exercise pants. I love the mesh panels and raised waistline. I'm debating buying them in gray too -- they're THAT great!

Why don't these have padding?
I've been searching and searching for the perfect crops for spinning and was ecstatic when I saw these online. As a Lululemon superfan, I automatically assumed these would be the perfect spin crops, with all of the typical things Lulu does right. Unfortunately, I was sorely disappointed when I tried these on in the store... where is the padding, Lulu?
Other reviewers have mentioned that because these crops are for "indoor cycling" you don't need padding-- I would wholeheartedly disagree with this-- if you are a spinning veteran logging 5-8 hours on a spin bike per week, padding is non-negotiable. Going to stick with my Assos crops for the time being.

Passed the Flywheel test!
I've been hoping to find an extremely breathable pant for cycling class and this is it! I sweat a ridiculous amount when I spin and these pants were amazing at wicking away sweat and helping me stay cool.
I don't feel like I need padding for a 45-60 minute indoor ride, so I am happy these pants don't have it.

INDOOR Cycling !!!!!!
For indoor cycling, staying cool is a must and this product offers just that. I've been taking spin/cycle classes for years and never once thought padding is needed....since you are in and out of the saddle so much. Padding would seem to be too hot and heavy for indoor cycling. Good job Lulu for excluding the padding. Remember, this is for INDOOR CYCLING as the title stated.

They move with my body
These pants are super lightweight and feel like part of my body--exactly what I was looking for. I liked the pants I had been wearing, but the drawstring was always annoying--these have nothing in the way. One thing I wish is that the front would come up just an inch higher--I have very little pooch, but still the pants feel like they push the pooch up instead of in. Otherwise, love them--they're the only pants I'll wear to cycling classes!

Fabulous for Indoor Spin/Cycle
The two reviews below seem really negative. I live in Southern California and no one wears "padded" shorts for indoor spin/cycle. I mean, you're standing up and clipped in--so you're out of the saddle. The majority of gals in my classes wear Wunder Unders or Inspires, so these are a nice change.
Personally, I think these are fabulous. The Power Luxtreme and Mesh are sweat-wicking and I like the higher waist. They are very flattering. I've worn them three times this week & I'm happy with this purchase. Fingers crossed that the quality holds up over time.

Cycle shorts / tights are padded. These ARE NOT padded but you are promoting them as cycle crops. I was excited when I first got notification but it's misleading :(.
