Proving that stunning style doesn't have to come at the expense of function, the Hincapie Women's Belle Mere Shorts comfortably support and stabilize muscles in distinct feminine style. Compressive panels prevent fatigue when you're logging serious miles and rigorously training on the road. The SPF 50+ rating ensures protection from searing UV rays on the hottest summer rides. Bolstering a secure fit, the flat, comfortable waistband firmly supports these shorts during rapid pedaling movement. Plus, Hincapie's Gel-Gripper prevents leg cuffs from riding up, all without uncomfortably digging into your skin. Sitting at the center of these shorts, the Team Chamois reduces saddle pressure while soaking up jarring road vibration. This anatomical, multi-density chamois is well-cushioned and highly breathable, ensuring maximum comfort for hours of continuous riding. The transparent reflective logo pops brilliantly in low-light conditions, keeping you visible to oncoming traffic after dark. Plus, the zippered rear pocket secures valuables, such as cash and keys.
