Terry is well-known in the cycling industry for being women owned and operated and making cycling clothes and saddles specifically for the female body. They lived up to their reputation when they made the Mixie Bike Liner.
It’s a fun, comfortable chamois that pairs perfectly with a cycling skirt or dress. The padding in the chamois is supple enough to last you up to two hours of riding but thin enough for quick commutes without feeling like you’re wearing your grandma’s pad.
It is the perfect addition to your cycling wardrobe and is extremely affordable. In fact, we liked the Mixie so much that we added it to our list of the best women’s chamois liners.

Thin Padding for Commutes and Shorter Mountain Bike Rides
The one really neat thing about Terry is how they offer different types of padding in their cycling shorts and liners. The Terry Mixie Bike Liner comes with their Urban Chamois and is designed for less bulk and riding in an upright position.
According to the Terry website, the urban chamois is, “Compact size, seamless chamois with 4-way stretch Elastic Interface Technology and multi-density foam padding. Shorter front to back and less bulky, for riding in a more upright commuter position. Light microfiber fabric reduces bulk at inner thigh to avoid chafing.”
The longest ride I did with these liners was about 2 hours. For me, that is the max I would wear these for. Even though I have the best saddle, I still like supple padding for longer rides and I do not think these liners are made for that WHICH is totally fine. I like having a plethora of options when it comes to liners, and these have been my go-to for short rides or just bumping around town.
It’s also important to note, that chamois thickness and size is such a personal preference. Kristen tested the Terry Universal liner which has the same chamois, and really liked that the pad had a smaller surface area than most.
Sizing: Mixed Reviews
When I looked up the reviews on these liners, several people said that the thighs were too tight and the waist was loose. I did not have this problem, but I can see where somebody with a different body shaped than mine would.
I am about 5’9 and 165 pounds with thick thighs and went with the large. These liners are tight around my thighs but not too tight that is uncomfortable.
They do give my thighs the look of a busted can of biscuits, but there aren’t many shorts or liners that don’t do that to my legs. With that being said, I find these liners to be more comfortable than my Club Ride ones and they don’t dig into any part of my body like others do.
Longer Inseam for Longer Legs
I love the length of these liners because they don’t ride up into my crotch. They are a 5” inseam and are the perfect length to wear under all my baggies and would even look super cute under a cycling dress or skirt.
If you’re on the shorter side, they might show underneath your shorts so looking for something with a shorter inseam like the POC Re-Cycle Liner might be your best bet.
One of my favorite things about these liners is the different options they have for colors and designs. So many companies don’t think about color and design option, but this is where Terry shines. There are 5 different designs on the Terry website and if you look into their skirts you will find these liners are meant to match them.
The Terry Guarantee
Something unique to Terry is that they stand behind their products like no other company I’ve seen. They have a return policy that states if you’re unhappy with your purchase you can simply return it for up to a YEAR!
That is unheard of, especially in the clothing industry. The only stipulation is that Final Sale items may not be returned or exchanged so take advantage of their excellent sizing guide to ensure the items you choose will fit you.
If You Don’t Think This Chamois Will Work, Terry Offers Several Others
The nice thing about Terry is they offer several different options for padding. Whether you want a thing chamois for cruising around town, one for triathlons, or one to ride a hundred miles with, Terry has you covered. They all come designed specifically for female anatomy and antimicrobial properties to keep you clean and dry.
If you can’t figure out which chamois will work best with you, Terry always recommends reaching out to their customer service department. They can help you find the right fit for your body and riding style. This is something that many other companies do not do and I think it is awesome they want everyone to feel comfortable on their saddle.
Bottom-Line: The Mixie Bike Liner Is An All-Around Awesome Chamois for Short Rides or Commutes
I highly recommend adding the Terry Mixie Bike Liner to your collection of liners. Not only are the designs unlike another company out there, but Terry prides themselves in making women feel comfortable in their clothes while pedaling their bikes.
This thin, moisture wicking chamois is perfect for a short mountain bike ride or even a day of brewery hopping. Pair it with Terry’s stylish cycling skirt and you’ll be the talk of the town without breaking the bank.
You cannot go wrong with anything Terry makes and if you absolutely dislike the chamois you can send it back for a refund or exchange for up to one year, making it a win-win for everyone.
