Ideal for the cyclist looking to step up their mileage without succumbing to uncomfortable pressure points and chaffing on longer rides, the Terry Bicycles Bella 8. 5in Women's Short provides a body conforming 6 panel design with flat stitching to eliminate irritation over sensitive skin areas. Its fabric uses a Meryl spandex blend for an optimal mix of comfort and performance. Meryl is an extremely lightweight fabric, with ample breathability and quick drying comfort on stifling summer rides. It's also antimicrobial, thanks to embedded silver ions that prevent odor causing bacteria from taking hold. And by blending Spandex into the equation, you'll find these shorts to be form fitting, highly elastic, and supportive along key muscle groups. The integrated Flex Air chamois uses perforations to disperse built up perspiration. This multi density, four way stretch chamois supports your sit bones without uncomfortable pressure points. Moreover, you'll appreciate the extra wide, elastic free waistband, which won't cut into your skin, as well as the silicone leg grippers for a secure, stay put fit.
