Bibs aren't always the answer, especially when you're going for shorter rides on hot days. When that's the case, something a little lighter, like the De Marchi Leggero Women's Shorts, is just the ticket. Designed with the same support, aerodynamic efficiency, and sleek style as De Marchi's other shorts, the Leggero will be a go to on training days when you're planning on spending up to three hours in the saddle. Why three hours Because that's the ride length De Marchi had in mind when it designed the women specific Elastic Interface Tour HP chamois. It features two densities of moisture wicking and flexible foam, cut in a pattern that provides the optimal blend of direct support and anatomically minded cutouts, and has a chemical free bacterio static finish that prevents the growth of odor causing bacteria. The shorts themselves are made with a lightweight but highly elastic fabric and stitched from pre cut panels that mirror your movements to reduce irritation and discomfort. A soft elastic waistband ensures a snug, comfortable fit, and silicone gel inserts at the hems prevent the legs of the Leggero from binding or riding up. Reflective details add a finishing touch and help you get home safely from those rides that stretch into the twilight hours.
