This is our midrange performance short, great for a long endurance ride or a quick hour workout indoors or out. Our Endurance Evolution fabric is a high-modulus, very matte Lycra® fabric that feels extremely dry while providing just the right amount of compression. The waist construction eliminates stitching and elastic and lies completely flat. At the leg ending we use a raw-cut edge with vertical silicone strips just like on our top-of-the-line Premio shorts to keep the leg in place without the pressure that creates the dreaded sausage effect. A great short needs a great seat pad, and the women's-specific KISS Air2 pad will keep you comfortable without being too bulky.
