The Hincapie Women's Performer Shorts utilize AT2 Performa Lycra for a firm but gentle hold on your legs. This provides a comfortable blend of light compressive support and supple stretch that reduces shock and road vibration. Hincapie utilizes a flat 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. At the cuffs, Hincapie's Gel Grip leg bands provide a light hold to keep the shorts from migrating. While the shorts may be Black in color, they're 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 insert is Hincapie's Women's Team Chamois, which is a multi density elastic pad that moves with you as you move. The Hincapie Performer Women's Shorts are available in sizes X Small to X Large and in the colors Black and White.
