Stealthy, sleek, comfortable and highly functional: the Aksium Short checks all the cycling boxes and then some. That versatility is key for today’s cyclists because no two rides are alike. Unique terrain and environmental conditions abound, whether you’re out for a short spin or a long haul. Bikes can bring us anywhere, and so can the Aksium Shorts.

The multi-layer Ergo Essential insert forms a supple layer for maximum saddle cushioning and support. Two different densities and progressive cushioning ease the pain of long days in the saddle, while maintaining a sleek profile.

Minimalism and low-profile features are essential for cycling shorts, however comfort can’t be compromised. The Aksium Short’s waistband sits comfortably across the abdomen and balances a snug fit with freedom of movement. A 4-Way stretch fabric, which is utilized everywhere but the insert, molds effortlessly to the body, and reacts to quick twitches and more subtle changes in form and direction. Silicon at the bottom keeps the shorts from sliding up and down with each pedal stroke.
