Mens Merino Padded Boxers (Biking Red)
Ask a question
UK | Get it by -
International | Please see delivery estimates here.
Made from odourless, highly breathable pure merino wool and featuring a superb Italian chamois pad from market leaders CyTech, these cycling specific boxers have become a hugely recommended classic amongst Vulpine customers.
We've chosen a slimmed down pad, removing any chafing of normal underwear and invisible through outerwear. There are silicon grippers on the legs to maintain shape, and a wide, soft elasticised waistband for even greater comfort. A button fly provides stylish convenience.
Our sizing is based around average, reasonably fit people. It should match the size you'd choose on the high street, not a cycling racing brand. Brands tend to have wildly varying size policies. Ours is "real".
|WAIST INCHES||WAIST CM||LEG CM|
Your favourite jeans size is always a good guide.
Measure around your natural waistline, mid way between your belly button and bottom of your rib cage. Keep the tape comfortably loose, level and breathe out.
Measure from the top of your inside leg at crotch point, down to your anklebone. You may need someone to hold the tape at your anklebone. They could hold it at your crotch... that's up to you, and them.

PURE MERINO WOOL
Odourless & highly breathable, these cycling specific boxers have become a hugely recommended classic amongst Vulpine customers
With a slimmed down pad, silicon grippers on the legs, and a wide, soft elasticised waistband for even greater comfort
If I had to be critical they do wear out more quickly than expected at the area between the merino and padding. Hasn't stepped me buying subsequently but it does appear to be a weak area that could be improved.
We appreciate your positive feedback and are thrilled that you are overall pleased with our Boxers. We appreciate your constructive criticism regarding the durability. We are committed to providing high-quality products, and your feedback helps us to identify areas for improvement. We'll be sure to take note of this and will work to strengthen the material in that area to improve its longevity in the future.
Thank you again for your support, and we hope to have you as our customer again soon.
The Vulpine Team
These are great, after years of wearing Lycra cycle shorts and always getting spots on thighs and buttocks even when removed immediately after a ride, I tried these , great comfort and no spots.
That's great to hear!
Thank you for your review. We hope to have the opportunity to serve you again in the future!
The Vulpine Team
Good sizing, in line with Vulpine's sizing guide. Comfortable and high quality.
Fast delivery as ever with Vulpine
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review for our Men's Merino Padded Boxers. We are thrilled to hear that you find them comfortable and of high quality. We take pride in creating products that are not only stylish but also perform well and provide comfort during rides. We are also glad to hear that our sizing guide was helpful and that you received your order quickly.
Thank you for choosing Vulpine.
These shorts are great, the chamois pad is really comfortable, the merino wool is really nice on the skin and has all the magical merino thermal and wicking goodness. If you want to wear a normal pair of shorts or trousers on your bike, I do as I have to look 'normal' when I go into offices I've biked to, then these are your best bet. Worn them on 120km+ rides and they've been awesome.
They are really comfortable and the cycle padding is perfect for everyday cycling.
