OVERVIEW: The Ascent Vector Short is an updated version of the tried-and-true Ascent Short, our workhorse that's been rode hard and raced in around the globe. The addition of Vector fabric with Flash, technology means this short will perform especially well on hot, sunny days. Flash is a fabric characteristic that pushes perspiration away from the skin, helping to regulate body temperature.
PAIR WITH: Pair with the Ascent or Ascent Air Jersey for exceptional comfort in a variety of conditions. Their 3 full-size, rear pockets let you pack plenty of food, tools and additional layers. Bring along the easily-stuffable Ultra-Lite Rain Jacket and you're ready for road spray and a chilly mountain descent. On colder days, when the temperature dips into the 40's, the Ascent Vector Shorts pair up nicely with the Alpine Thermal RT Jersey and a set of knee warmers.
FABRIC & CONSTRUCTION: Our globally-tested Ascent short includes MITI® Vector fabric, featuring Flash technology, noted for it’s exceptional capabilities of pushing moisture away from the body. The combination of Pactimo’s proprietary Silhouette™ articulation and new contoured seaming have been developed to guarantee a superlative fit in your riding position.
