Giro's 40M Tech Overshorts are made for the cyclists who want to have their cycling specific, water resistant, everyday looking cake and eat it, too. This is owed primarily to the gussets in the crotch and sides. The gusseting helps the shorts avoid catching on your saddle and accommodates your legs and hips throughout the cycling motion. They're unrestrictive in the saddle without resorting to painted on Lycra, making the Overshorts a pair of cycling bottoms you can ride home to your parents' for dinner without the awkward you're wearing colored underwear looks. The shorts are made from a forgiving, four way stretch fabric and have a DWR treated fabric to keep moisture from the road and sky from raining on your two wheeled parade. The adjustable waist and satin lined leg openings make for a comfortable fit that maintains coverage without chafing. The shorts also ventilate well, so you won't have arrive for Sunday dinner with an unsightly racing stripe of sweat. In case you get lost or forget what kind of flowers to bring, the shorts also have a phone pocket for easy access to your portable device. This model of the Giro 40M Tech Overshorts is the more relaxed regular cut, which means there's even less of a chance you'll have to make awkward conversation with your parents over awkwardly bulging shorts.
