The Pinarello Women's Cycling Short is built for the cyclist who won't accept performance compromise in her riding gear. The shorts' Power Lycra main body provides genuine compression, and the insert is one of the best in the cycling industry.The shorts' main body fabric is Performer, a 210g Power Lycra. This is a compressive material that reduces the effects of road vibration, promotes bloodflow, and protects muscles during long periods of high exertion. The shorts also uses Shield Endurance panels for its excellent stretch and durability. Pinarello also added abrasion-resistant panels at the inner thighs for greater durability.The shorts' body is kept in place by Grip 650 leg bands, which spread a soft, non-restrictive, and gently compressive grip across the 6 centimeter-wide cuffs. A silicone application is used throughout these bands to help keep everything in place. The chamois is the women-specific Cirro OmniForm (O. F.) . It incorporates aloe vera particles for natural antimicrobial properties with a pleasant cooling side effect. The Cirro's 4mm-thick pad of waffled-texture expanding memory foam actively ushers moisture to the perimeter of the chamois to speed evaporation and limit bacteria-prone dampness. The final layer of the chamois is a thick section of hand-sewn open cell padding with recessed channels for pressure relief.
