You don't need skin tight biker shorts to speed your way to work. The Arc'teryx Women's A2B Commuter Long Short does the job in the same time with none of the spandex. Not that there's anything wrong with spandex, but may not be something you want to wear around town or at home. These denim inspired shorts, however, remain casually cool, lending them to everyday wear even when you're not pedaling your little heart out. While the cotton maintains a cool temperature in warm weather, the polyester features a T 400 stretch to keep those legs moving without hindrance. The amazing 3XDRY technology combines two advantages into one: on the outside surface, it repels water, while the inside of the short remains water absorbent and quick drying, keep you dry from both angles. Arc'teryx designed functional articulation specifically to benefit the urban cyclist flip out back pocket reflective panels and cuffs provide extra safety for nocturnal rides when being seen can mean the different between a very good and a very bad ride.
