Welcome to the Mavic website

In the Aksium Shorts, fashion and function find common ground. Mavic blends high-performance fabric and construction with nuanced details and design, providing female cyclists with the best of all worlds.

The women’s specific Aksium Shorts feature a shorter inseam (20cm) than traditional-length cycling shorts. Overall, the seams are kept to a minimum and carefully positioned to prevent chafing and related discomfort. The fabric is made from a durable, supportive textile with high elasticity for consistent leg hold while pedaling. They’re a great fit for riders seeking enhanced leg mobility when hammering on the uphill or gaining ground on the flats. Bonus: the shorter inseam also eliminates those awkward, knee-to-hip length tan lines formed by longer shorts.

When it comes to points of contact, the multi-layer Ergo Essential W chamois is designed specifically for women, and 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 and subtle profile.

All these features culminate in a highly-versatile pair of women’s shorts that are equally at home commuting to work and school as they are heading for the high country’s steep ups and downs.
