Designed for discerning female riders, the Terry Bicycles Bella 6in Women's Short offers optimum levels of support, style, and comfort. Its high degree of stretch comes courtesy of its Meryl spandex blend, which strategically supports key muscle groups when you're grinding away for hours at a time. It's also extremely lightweight, breathable, and moisture wicking for high levels of comfort in sweltering summer conditions. Plus, you'll find integrated silver ions for natural antimicrobial and odor fighting properties. The shorts feature a six panel design with flat stitched panels to prevent chaffing and irritation. Preventing the dreaded sausage effect along the waist and legs, the short's wide, elastic free waist and silicone leg grippers secure the shorts without pinching or bunching. Realizing the chamois often makes or breaks the short's real world performance, Terry integrated their Italian made Flex Air chamois with small perforations to increase air circulation and speed up evaporation of built up perspiration. This seamlessly molded chamois stretches in four directions to ensure maximum mobility without excess bulk.
