Heads up — some color bleed may occur
Color bleed, especially with darker colored nylon/spandex blends, is common and could stain light colored garments if washed together.

sustainability

Groundwork Knit is made using a premium grade nylon that has a significantly tighter woven filament than standard synthetics. Tighter filaments mean less microfiber shedding in the wash-cycle, plus greater durability of the garment (longer lifespan, more wearing).

Groundwork Knit fabric is also bluesign® certified meaning it is free from harmful chemicals and is fabricated in a way that meets a high environmental standard.

Miraculous

These shorts are literally a miracle. I have had such a hard time finding "biker short" style shorts that do the job but Janji absolutely nailed it! These are by far the most comfortable and technically sound. The length and breathability is perfect, the compression is super supportive but not restrictive, they don't ride up at all (!!!), and the pockets are extremely functional/well-designed. I'm so so pleased and plan to wear these for my ultra marathon in the Fall. For reference I am 5'8" and 140 lbs, athletic build.

Best shorts EVER

These are the only biker running shorts on the market I’ve bought that stay in place. Buy these immediately.

Groundwork pace shorts

Really like these shorts! They are just compressive enough, stay put, and they have deep pockets to hold items when running. Great shorts!

Great shorts for biking and running

These are super comfortable - nice wide waistband, and the no-slip stuff at the leg openings works well. I've been wearing them mostly for road biking but they're also great for running; so, especially perfect for times when I want to bike to the start of a run. Got one pair, then went back and bought another - highly recommend.

Best Anti-Chafe solution

Well worth the money. If you are a runner who suffers from chaffing and are looking for a solution other than Body Glide, these shorts are it! They are my go-to long run shorts! The side pockets are great to hold your phone and other essentials and the little shirt loop on the back is a huge plus for sweatier runs:)

Shorts so amazing I had to write a review.

I've been hesitant to try bike-type shorts but the spray pattern was too cute to pass up. I wore them for a five mile run and they're amazing! They never rode up and felt weightless but supported at the same time. I didn't use the pockets but I have no doubt that they'll serve their purpose well. I love that they have a waist band to tighten the waist if needed - they felt a bit big when I put them on before my run but they didn't fall while I was running. They're also really flattering; I have (and embrace!) thighs that can look like sausages in certain compression shorts but these look great on me :)

Amazinggggg!

I never write reviews but I got these shorts randomly because I wanted to try the biker short style for distance running (I'm currently marathon training). They were so perfect! Never rode up, kept me cool on a hot midwest morning and they just felt so soft and smooth...never had to worry about chafing (hallelujah). I even kept my phone in the pocket but was nervous it would just get really damp from sweating...it didn't! It stayed pretty dry. I have them in blue and black and will most likely be ordering more. They're the best! Also TTS!

Perfect

These shorts are the only thing I will ever wear in a race. They are absolute perfection. Perfect length, perfect fit, perfect pockets. I will keep buying them.

So great! Love the pockets.

These shorts are amazing. I can put my phone, keys, etc in the pockets and totally forget they are there when I run.
