Designed to provide unparalleled support and comfort for your most demanding rides, and there is no better short for an epic day on the bike. Our ELITE shorts are often the first choice of our ultra-distance cycling customers, and note all the bibs worn by riders in the Tour de France. The Action fabric is of a robust weight for added durability and features higher compression (i.e. higher spandex content) to provide maximum muscle support. And our Sahara bib top eliminates the feel of a waistband to provide a secure, comfortable fit for all-day comfort.
• High-Compression Action fabric provides maximum muscle support and durability.
• Sahara micro-mesh bib top has wide 2-1/2" straps to eliminate pinching. High-stretch fabric is cut high in back to keep them securely in place, and low in front for cooling air flow. • Lycra Modesty Liner and Internal Key Pocket.
• 1" Gripper Leg Elastic to keep the full-length legs securely in place.
• Enhanced 8-Panel Design provides a seamless inner thigh and anantomical shape to prevent chafing.
• Articulated Hip to match your riding position, low in front and long in back, to fit best while in a cycling position.

**Fitting Note: Our PRO and ELITE shorts are designed to fit you specifically while in a cycling position, and subsequently, will feel loose in the rear end and low in front when standing upright and trying them on for fit. Please hop on your bike, bend forward to the handlebars, and then check their fit in your riding position.
To Measure your Hips With feet together, measure around the fullest part. To Measure your Waist Measure around waist at the height you normally wear your pants. Alternatively, use your dress pants size. To Measure your Inseam Measure pants that fit well from the crotch seam to bottom of pants. Alternatively, use your dress pants size.
