Sometimes, we depend on the sun to bestow upon us those beautiful riding days, but other times, it can ruin them. When the heat threatens, however, Terry gives you a trick up your sleeve, or, rather, leg, in the form of the Terry Echelon Shorts. From the experts in women's specific cycling gear come the Echelons, constructed entirely from a polyester, nylon, and spandex blend that's been treated with Coldblack. In addition to keeping you cooler, this treatment also protects you from harmful UV rays. Terry constructed the Echelon shorts with a 6 panel design that conforms to your muscles, and the wide waistband is elastic free. Mesh panels at the front and back center panel flex so that it never digs into you while riding. At the other end of the shorts, a wide 2. 5 inch Grip 500 leg band prevents creep, without binding against your legs. Finally, Terry used its proprietary, Italian made Flex Air Chamois in the Echelon shorts. This chamois features Elastic Interface Technology EIT. This variable density insert flexes so as to move with you while you ride. A perforated cover expedites airflow to aid in wicking moisture away from the skin. The Terry Echelon Shorts Women's come in six sizes from X Small to XX Large and in the color Black.
