The Capo Fondo Donna Short for women is not a shrink and pink version of the men's short. Its cut and chamois are designed for the women who loves to log miles but prefers the fit of shorts over bibs. The shorts were sewn from panels of Power Lycra. This material features compressive like quailities without being of medical grade, due to a higher grams per square meter weight than most Lycra fabrics. To this end, it wraps and supports your muscles which supports and shields them from the vibration caused by riding rough roads. Additionally, the Power Lycra is treated with a Coldblack finish. This is used to reduce the absorption of heat rays in darker fabrics, which means that you stay cooler. The Power Lycra also wicks moisture away from your skin, so you stay dry, and staying dry is key to regulating body temperature. Knowing that regardless of how supportive your shorts are, you won't ride very long without proper chamois support, Capo used its Endurance 3D Donna insert in the Donna Fondo shorts. This chamois uses a high density open cell foam that has been bonded to a microfiber layer. Within this layer, antimicrobial threads have been woven to aid in moisture evaporation. It features 6mm and 8mm thick pads placed in optimal positions to support your sit bones while cushioning soft tissue areas. To ensure that the insert stays put, the bibs are finished with Capo's signature silicone backed leg grippers. Finally, the waistband is a wide, yoga inspired panel with a deep front v shape. This minimizes binding and pinching against the stomach while riding. The Capo Fondo Donna Shorts are available in sizes Small through X Large and in the color Black.
