Whether you're furiously hammering out of the saddle or steadily cranking up steep mountain grades, the Hincapie Sportswear Women's Power Shorts combine the best of abrasion resistant durability, anatomical padding, and supportive stretch characteristics. AT2 Force Lycra Power construction comfortably hugs your lower body with its multi directional stretch. TourTek Compressor fabric stabilizes key muscle groups, courtesy of its compression properties. Schoeller's Coldblack treatment reflects hot UV rays, much like a lightly colored fabric for cool wearing comfort under the searing summer sun. Sitting at the heart of these supportive cycling shorts, Hincapie's anatomical Power GT chamois comfortably soaks up fatiguing vibration from jarring road surfaces, all without sacrificing breathability or temperature regulation when the mercury rises. Hincapie recommends this women's specific chamois for rides spanning up to eight hours in duration, meaning it's great for long distance efforts. And to prevent excess wear and tear, ABR Resistor Lycra combats saddle abrasion with its specially knitted blend of nylon, polyester, and Lycra yarns. Other ride savvy features include Comfort flex leg bands for a secure fit, eliminated seams for smooth wearing, and reflective details for boosted visibility after dark.
