Plain black cycling shorts have served us well for years, but throwing some color into your kit adds a little bit of fun. The Hincapie Parallax Women's Short gives you a splash of color without sacrificing an ounce of high tech performance. The Parallax also adds a little compression, a numbness reducing seamless insert, and sun protection to round things off.The Parallax Short is made primarily of a compressive fabric called AT2 Tour Lycra Power that supports and stabilizes your legs' driving muscles to improve circulation and fight fatigue. It's joined by TourTek Compressor, another fabric that lends additional support while helping the shorts keep their shape, so they don't shift or bunch, all without being too tight or constrictive, and as a bonus, providing 50 UPF protection from the sun, too. Inside the shorts, you'll find a seamless, anatomically shaped, multi density Hincapie Pro chamois, designed specifically for women for optimal support, comfort, and moisture evaporation, featuring a center relief channel to alleviate pressure on sensitive tissue. The four way stretch chamois was designed to move with you in the saddle. Finally, the wide band waist is especially comfortable, and the wide band ProGrip leg grippers even distribute the fabric's compressive properties.
