These shorts are the best solution to the problem of nature breaks for women cyclists. The zip is positioned in the waist area, where it has the least impact on riding position and we have improved the design with a stretch zipper that gives more flexibility when it is done up. You will forget its there until you need to use it. Using our most popular fabric and ACTIVE padded insert with two different densities, for added protection under the seat bones and a GORE® WINDSTOPPER® Liner for increased breathability, these shorts will help you perform to the highest level and maximise your training time.
