Hot weather can be a serious challenge to even the most experienced cyclist. You need all the help you can get when temperatures peak in July and August. Hincapie is here to help. The Women's Dhalla Short is purpose built to beat back the hottest days so you can charge just as hard as you did during the cool early spring.The Dhalla Short utilizes AT2 Force Power Lycra for a firm but gentle squeeze of your legs. This not only means that the chamois won't move, but you'll experience fewer jarring vibrations when riding. Dhalla Road Shorts also incorporate strategically placed Velocitek panels. This is a polyester and spandex stretch mesh that's tightly knitted as to provide excellent structure and moisture management. Hincapie utilizes a flat comfort waistband on these shorts so they'll stay in place without binding, grabbing, or pinching. It's a two layer fabric where the cut of the pattern functions as part of the grip, thus making a hidden elastic band unnecessary. Dhalla Shorts are actually cooler than your typical black spandex bottoms. The cool comes from the application of Schoeller's ColdBlack treatment to the black panels. This invisible finish reflects the sun's heat away from the body for greater comfort and ensures that the shorts provide SPF 50 protection. The chamois is Hincapie's Women's Power Chamois, a multi density stretch pad with high density foam added to the sit bone areas.
