OVERVIEW: This lightweight, traditionally Lycra-feeling short is the ideal choice for those who want a shorter inseam and prefer shorts over bibs. It will perform well over medium distances in a variety of conditions, including hot, sunny days thanks to Flash Technology, a fabric characteristic that helps regulate body temperature by pushing perspiration away from the skin. The Italian-made, Elastic Interface® chamois offers a larger footprint with more coverage to fit a wider range of riders, and includes added front coverage for increased comfort and reduced chaffing. Wide, single layer leg bands with soft Silicone printed grippers give a muscle soothing compression fit while also ensuring the legs won't ride up.
FABRIC & CONSTRUCTION: The Ascent Short has been constructed with MITI® Vector fabric, featuring Flash technology, noted for its exceptional capabilities of pushing moisture away from the body. The combination of Pactimo’s proprietary Silhouette™ articulation and contoured seaming have been developed to guarantee a superlative fit in your riding position. The Italian Elastic Interface® chamois, offers larger coverage with added padding in the front for added comfort.
The following OFF BODY inseam lengths were measured on a garment at rest. They may not exactly reflect the ACTIVE inseam length when the garment is being worn due to the combined effects of the 1) the riders's torso and femur length, 2) stretchiness of the material, and 3) the rider's leg musculature.
