Looking for incredible comfort on long rides with rapidly rising temperatures' The Terry Bicycles Women's Echelon Knicker has you covered, quite literally, in a supple blend of polyester, nylon, and spandex for the much ballyhooed benefits of light compression on longer rides. Its sun blocking Coldblack finish keeps your legs from overheating when the cool, early morning air gives way to scorching afternoon temperatures. Acting much like a lightly colored fabric, the Coldblack finish reflects solar radiation, actively cooling these knickers up to five degrees during the dead heat of the day. Moreover, these knickers feature a UPF 50 rating, ensuring protection from harmful UV radiation on bright summer rides. Its sculpted six panel design conforms to your lower body, with flat seams for a smooth, non irritating feel when you're pedaling for hours at a time. Its re designed waistband eliminates rolling to keep the rear rise in place, thanks to its wide, contoured shape with elastic free front yoke. Keeping the legs from riding up, the knicker's 2. 5 inch Grip 500 leg bands offer a secure, stay put fit without pinching your legs, courtesy of their elastic free construction. Equipped with Terry's lightest, most ventilated chamois, the Echelon Knicker features a Flex Air Lite chamois for ultra light padding with increased air circulation. The chamois is constructed from a seamless four way stretch material with Elastic Interface Technology and thin multi density foam padding. What that boils down to is incredible comfort in the saddle, regardless of long, grueling distances and scorching summer temperatures. Plus, its lightweight, channeled microfibers and larger perforations offer a cool, airy feel without the inevitable sweat build up experienced with a lesser ventilated chamois.
