For those who prefer additional freedom of movement, and the style of a higher cut leg, the Women's Essential Short combines comfort and performance without the awkward tan lines of traditional cycling shorts. Designed for all types of riding, from short spins to longer days in the saddle, it delivers premium comfort at a value that can’t be beat.

Cut from a high-stretch fabric, the Women's Essential Short features a shorter inseam (15cm) for lightweight comfort and style. The seams are kept to a minimum and carefully positioned to prevent chafing. The Ergo Essential W chamois is designed specifically for women to keep you comfortable no matter how long you ride. It’s made with two different densities for progressive cushioning while also minimizing bulk so it still has a flattering profile.

The fabric is made from a durable, supportive textile with high elasticity for consistent leg hold while pedaling. And the legs feature a raw-cut construction with silicon grippers for a snug but lightweight, breathable feel.
