Show Description

Designed for a women's anatomy, these commuting and touring shorts go the extra mile. A wide waistband eliminates pinching. Chamois feels smooth and lacks edges that can chafe. Fabric panels both flatter and support. And when the hills get long and steep, the dampness-wicking effect kicks into high gear.

  • Quick-drying, moisture-wicking nylon and spandex.
  • Comfortable wide waistband.
  • Women’s specific Select Escape 1:1 chamois is smooth next to skin with blended edge-free cushioning.
  • Silicon leg grippers hold hems in place without constriction.
  • Reflective detailing for low-light viz.
