Ergonomically designed with an articulated fit, the POC Women's Resistance Mid Shorts promote a full range of motion for pedaling up then ripping down your favorite trails. These shorts feature a nylon stretch blend that's both lightweight and ultra tough, withstanding regular use and abuse on the trail. The backside features a water resistant treatment that prevents flinging mud, dirt, and moisture from sticking to these shorts. A longer cut easily slides over your knee pads without snagging or chafing. Plus, hook and loop waist adjustments ensure a secure fit when you're pummeling through rough stretches and negotiating tight switchbacks. There's also a soft lined interior for a smooth, moisture wicking feel when you're working up a sweat on long uphill slogs in warmer conditions.
